Samantha Morton Wants to Rule the World


Actress Samantha Morton's directorial debut Unloved premiered last night at the Toronto Film Festival, but according to one report, she got the celebrating started a day early at a party hosted by South by Southwest. "Suddenly, someone grabs me as I move by and I look over and there's a woman dancing and smiling at me, obviously intensely drunk," wrote indieWIRE's Peter Knegt. "She looks really familiar but I get my cue to start moving through the crowd so I start walking away. It suddenly dawns on me: It was Samantha Morton." The Oscar-nominee eventually summoned enough courage, inebriation or both to join a fellow partygoer for a duet of "Everybody Wants to Rule the World." [The Lost Boy]
