Morton Pleased To Be Anonymous
British actress Samantha Morton refuses to embark on endless publicity tours to increase her Hollywood profile, because she enjoys her relative anonymity. Despite having been nominated for two Oscars, mother-of-one Morton rarely gets spotted while out and about. She says, "I'm not a Hollywood star. I don't get recognised. I never get, 'Samantha Morton, can I have an autograph?' "On the very, very rare occasions when I get, 'You really look like that Hollywood actress,' I do say, 'Yeah, I'm an actress.' And they go, 'No, you're not!' "There are certain things you have to do to be box office. The women I know who do that and earn incredible amounts of money really, sincerely, do not have lives. I've got a daughter. I'm not prepared to do that."
