Arterton: Catelli wasn’t my soul mate

Gemma Arterton is convinced marriage is unnecessary and has arrived to the conclusion she may never find her soul mate following her split from husband Stefano Catelli.

The 27-year-old Bond Girl recently split from her husband Stefano Catelli after more than two years of marriage.

Now that they have parted she has lost hope of finding her soul mate.

She makes it clear in the June edition of Marie Claire UK Stefano wasn’t it.

“I look at certain couples and they’re soul mates, you can just see it,” she said.

“I like the idea there’s one out there and you’ve known each other before, like in a past life. But I’ve yet to meet that person.”

The breakdown of her marriage has Gemma questioning the idea of matrimony. It’s a romantic notion the actress admits she has always had trouble grasping.

“I don’t know how I feel about marriage; whether it’s really necessary. If you are not religious, what does it mean?” she asked.

“I’d always thought that – then I got married. And now I still believe in what I believed in when I was a child.”

The star still tries to keep an optimistic outlook. She declined to say anything negative about her ex.

“Even if they don’t last, relationships can enrich your life in some way and then you move on to the next part,” she reasoned. "It’s all part of the process of living.”

Gemma began dating Italian Stefano in 2009 and the couple married the following year.
