ACTRESS Gemma Arterton has revealed she punched a homeless man in the face after he squeezed her bottom.

The star said she put to use some of the physical training she has done for her role in Hansel And Gretel, but ran off after realising what had happened.

Arterton, 27, made her confession on last night’s Graham 
Norton Show on BBC 1.

Speaking about the incident, she said: “I was in one of those ATM cash machine rooms and there was a tramp in there. He kept looking at me and then he grabbed my bum really hard.

“I turned round and properly punched him in the face. I then realised I’d punched a tramp in the face so I ran. Thank God he didn’t punch me back.

“I actually felt quite bad about it.”

Arterton said she was attracted to her latest movie role, inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairytale, because of the action.
