In 2008, she appeared in the James Bond film Quantum of Solace. Chosen from around fifteen hundred candidates, Arterton plays Bond Girl Strawberry Fields, in what is described as a "nice-sized role". Arterton describes her character as "the thinking man's crumpet". In the same year, she played the eponymous protagonist in the BBC adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles. Also in 2008, she played Elizabeth Bennet in the ITV serial, Lost in Austen. Her most controversial role to date was in the 2009 film The Disappearance of Alice Creed, in which her character is kidnapped and abused in several graphic nude scenes. The role required her to be handcuffed to a bed and wear a ball gag in her mouth throughout. She requested that she be left tied to the bed even when the camera was not on her to help her performance. She joked that the crew would put the ball gag back in if she was chatting too much.

In 2010, Arterton made her West End debut in the UK premiere of The Little Dog Laughed. She was originally attached to star in a new adaptation of Wuthering Heights as Catherine Earnshaw; however, she later left the project. In 2008 Arterton announced that she was "soon to be in a film adaptation of the book Burden of Desire in a starring role", but as of 2016 the film has not been produced.

Arterton appeared in pivotal roles in the 2010 films Clash of the Titans and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and played the lead in Tamara Drewe. In 2010 Arterton also starred in the Almeida Theatre's production of "The Master Builder." In 2011, Arterton was nominated twice by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts for her performances in Tamara Drewe and The Disappearance of Alice Creed. In November 2012, she was selected as a member of the main competition jury at the 2012 International Film Festival of Marrakech.

Arterton starred in the action horror film Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters as Gretel opposite the actor Jeremy Renner who played Hansel. The 3-D film was set 15 years after Hansel and Gretel killed the witch who kidnapped them. It was released on 25 January 2013. In January 2014, she took the title role in John Webster's The Duchess of Malfi, the inaugural production at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, the new indoor theatre at Shakespeare's Globe. In the same year, she starred with Ryan Reynolds, Anna Kendrick and Jacki Weaver in the psychological thriller film, The Voices.

In 2014–2015, Arterton was starring in Made in Dagenham, a stage musical about the Ford sewing machinists strike of 1968 concerning equal pay for women. She played a woman named Rita O'Grady and her performance received mixed to negative reviews from critics. Simon Edge, for the Daily Express, complained of an "underpowered central performance from Gemma Arterton as Rita ... she lacks any of the goofy charisma that Sally Hawkins brought to the film role, so that it's hard to see how her character ever came to the fore of this dispute". The show closed after only five months, due to poor ticket sales. Since its premiere on 5 November 2014 at the Adelphi Theatre in London, she has publicly expressed her support for their cause.

In a 2015 interview with the Independent newspaper, Arterton stated that she was director Jonathan Glazer's choice for the lead role in his movie Under the Skin. However, Glazer was forced to recast due to Arterton's perceived lack of 'star power'.

In February 2016, Arterton started a run playing the title role in the Shakespeare's Globe transfer of Nell Gwynn, at the West End's Apollo Theatre. In July 2016 she was named as a member of the main competition jury for the 73rd Venice International Film Festival. and she will play Vita Sackville-West in upcoming film Vita & Virginia

Personal life

From 2007 to 2008, Gemma had an 18-month relationship with John Nolan. They met on the set of Quantum of Solace and lived together near Alexandra Palace. In 2008, she had a relationship with Spanish stuntman Eduardo Munoz, whom she met on the set of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, when he was hired to teach her to ride horses. They lived together in a flat in London and split up after six months.

On 5 June 2010, Arterton married Italian businessman Stefano Catelli, who works for a British fashion marketing company, in a private ceremony in Zuheros, Spain, less than a year after the couple began dating and getting engaged at the Download music festival in 2009. In early 2013, Arterton and her husband separated, and in August 2015 their divorce was finalised "by [mutual] consent" at the Central Family Court in High Holborn. Arterton stated she "never really believed in exchanging vows", and that she's not sure she would "want to walk down the aisle again." In 2013, Gemma stated that she wants to wait until she has accomplished something in the acting world before having children.

Since 2013, she has been in a relationship with Franklin Ohanessian, a French film assistant director whom she met on the set of The Voices in 2013 and worked together with in the film Gemma Bovery.
