London, Oct 9 (IANS) British actress Gemma Arterton used to believe her family was odd when she was growing up because her parents were separated.

The actress was slightly embarrassed of her home life when she was growing up because she came from a broken home and her hippy mother wasn’t a conventional parent, reports contactmusic.com.

“My home life was very dysfunctional. I remember thinking, ‘God, my family is so odd.’ My mum and dad split up when I was very young and I had lots of brothers and sisters and my mum had lots of boyfriends,” she said.

“She was a hippy and had loads of stuff from her travels. When I’d go to my friends’ houses, they’d have B&Q; wallpaper and we had drawings all over the wall. It’s fabulous now but at the time I remember being embarrassed,” she added.
