She's played a Bond girl and a nymph who beguiled the gods, but someone out there thinks British actress Gemma Arterton might not be sexy enough for her role as the renamed Farah in next month's Prince of Persia movie.

Now I suppose that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but as far as this beholder is concerned Gemma Arterton is perfect for the role of Princess Tamina, the character that evolved from the prince's companion Farah from the Prince of Persia video games. So the fact that anyone would take the time out of their day to write her a letter telling her otherwise boggles my mind.

According to an interview in the May edition of Details magazine, someone did just that.

"I've gotten letters telling me I'm not right for the part because I don't look like the girl in the video game! She really is this sex goddess. They've got massively high standards."

Seriously? I understand how someone might not find her attractive. Again, different strokes for different folks, but if you're so wrapped up in a video game character that you feel the need to mail the actress playing her to let her know she isn't right for the role, you probably need to get out more.

I mean, look:

This kinda reminds me of the arguement over wether actress Kristin Kreuk was "asian-enough" to play Chun Li in "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li". But this is "Prince of Persia". What's the big fucking deal? Its was just some generic damsel in distress princess. Gemma Arterton is hella fine to play her.

I think those complaining in this situation just might be homosexual.
