Gemma Arterton is divorcing her Italian stunt man husband after two years

I know that Gemma Arterton isn’t particularly well known, but I find this story interesting as I remember covering her wedding. Arterton, 27, shot to fame as a Bond girl in Quantum of Solace and she’s currently co-starring that that terrible-looking fantasy action movie with Jeremy Renner, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. (Checking the box office, it didn’t do that well domestically but will more than recover its budget with worldwide ticket sales, so it wasn’t a flop or anything.)

Anyway lovely Gemma married an Italian stunt man named Stefano Catelli, 39, in the summer of 2010. It was kind of a fairy-tale romance in that Catelli played Daniel Craig’s body double in Quantum of Solace, and the two went on to marry in a “secret” ceremony at the ruins of a castle in Andalusia. The photos were just gorgeous and I’m including some of them here. Sadly, it didn’t last for these two! After a little over two years they’re getting a divorce.

Gemma Arterton is back on the market.

The actress is said to be “devastated” after her two-year marriage to Stefano Catelli came to an end.

“It’s sad, but her marriage is over,” she said.

“Gemma thought Stefano was the one. He really wore the trousers in the relationship, such was her devotion to him. It happened a couple of months ago. It was a mutual decision.

“Gemma’s gorgeous and there are scores of men who will be begging her for a date. But she’s in no rush to move on.”

Over the weekend, Gemma has been spending time with her friend Bradley Cooper, 38, as her pal was keen to cheer her up.

They enjoyed an evening at London’s Rose club after a party on Friday, and spent Saturday at a pre-BAFTA party at the city’s nightspot Annabel’s.

“Brad and Gemma have become firm friends and, as she’s feeling down at the moment, he wanted to show her a good time while he’s in London,” a source said.

“After hanging out at Harvey Weinstein’s Silver Linings bash at Little House Restaurant they decided to share a car to Rose, where they spent a few hours partying together at a table.”

No! I don’t want Gemma to get with stupid greasy Bradley Cooper. He is a dud of a sex symbol. Kaiser wants her to hook up with Jeremy Renner, they would be hot together. She’s so gorgeous she would be hot with anyone basically.

As for Gemma’s divorce, she got married relatively young for a celebrity, and she was just at the beginning of her career. Now she’s earning leading roles and there was probably too much stress, and temptation on both sides, for her marriage to last. They also come from different cultures, which may have complicated things. At least she didn’t have any kids with this guy who would be affected by a divorce.

    wow, he’s hot. I didn’t even realize she was married though..

    and can I just say, I hate bolo ties. stop it..

  2. mel says:

    Poor thing. She married too young.

  3. Erinn says:

    They were a good looking couple. I’ve never heard of her, that I can remember. It’s always a shame when a relationship ends. Hopefully they’ll both find happiness elsewhere and remain on good terms.

  4. Helvetica says:

    Divorces are a dime a doze in Hollywood but still sad.

    She is pretty.

  5. Hubbahun says:

    She looks so sad, poor thing! I like her very much, for someone so gorgeous she seems really down to earth and not up herself at all. And although Renner is MINE, Kaiser, MINE (:D) I would be happy to share with Gemma out of the kindness of my heart :D

  6. annabelle says:

    Wow, she is stunning! I’m sure she’ll fall into some A-Lister’s arms in no time.

  7. gee says:

    She is so gorgeous, in my next life I’d like to look like her.

  8. Ms Kay says:

    Now that’s odd… Had a weird dream a couple of days ago that she hooked up with Tom Hiddleston….

  9. Sad news. The story about when her and her husband first met is so cute (she wrote in her diary the same night that she was going to marry him and gave the page to him two weeks later) but maybe it wasn’t meant to be.

  10. Hannah says:

    That guy was Daniel Craig’s stunt double? He looks nothing like him.

    Sad for Gemma. They did get married really quickly, though…

  11. kibbles says:

    She seems like a sweet and kind person who isn’t really part of the Hollyweird crowd. She’s really gorgeous but in a natural way without the tweaking and extreme dieting. I like her. She still lives a low-key life in England and although I don’t see her becoming A-list anytime soon, she is slowly building up her career and getting more exposure in America.

    That second to last pic says it all. They do not look happy in that pic from Sept. 2012. Her ex is handsome but appears a bit shallow/metro in these pics. I think she can do better but I’m sure she’s heartbroken. I can’t see her with Jeremy Renner. I think she should end up with someone wholesome like a John Krasinski type.

  12. Lulu says:

    I’be seen Quantum Of Solace twice and I still don’t recognise her at all. Hmmm…

  13. Vivian says:

    Her soon to be ex husband is not a stunt man, that stunt man guy was her ex — before this relationship. Stefano works in fashion with one of those major houses etc. I’ve been a Gemma fan for a while; I love it when she hardly wears any makeup — naturally sooo beautiful.

  14. Lemony says:

    What gorgeous wedding photos, that’s so sad. She was probably a bit too young & the courtship too fast, but that’s still sad.

  15. Tiffany says:

    The cynic in me believes she already has a jump off. It that how the game is played, you announce your divorce and you show off your new piece to let people know you ate alright.

  16. Apples says:

    A friend I studied abroad with also married a handsome Italian. Turned out, he seemed to be confused with the concept of fidelity. I guess it was a cultural issue. They were divorced after a year and a half of marriage.

    Andalusia, isn’t that where Giselle is from in that Disney film Enchanted?

  18. Kaboom says:

    I rather like that black and tan dress.

  19. Flahoola says:

    She is the spit of Helena Christensen in the snap with the white sunglasses

  20. Amanda says:

    Personally, I think she married too soon before she even started to make it big. Too bad they couldn’t work things out. At least they didn’t have kids.

  21. pfeiffer87 says:

    It seemed to me that Clooney was checking her out at the BAFTAs whilst she was giving an award. Is she his type? I think it would make for an interesting relationship though – a good rebound guy for her.

  22. Emma says:

    Ha – I thought I was the only one who wanted her to get with Jeremy Renner. They’re so cute together. She does look sad but from what have seen of her and Jeremy’s promo they really get on and seem to have fun. Very cute together.
