I've got a lot of stairs in my house! I'm on the sixth floor. I should be fit and have a really nice ass, but I don't.
Catholicism played such a huge part in my life, I would not have survived without my faith. Samantha Morto
On paper, it looks rough, but I had a great childhood.
You get very possessive about characters, you feel you can see it in your mind and you want to play it.
Everyone wants to look their best, everyone has dreams of wanting to look like something else. But we are who we are.
The truth is I had lots of rehab and now I have a clean bill of health.
I have worked very hard on being aware of my childhood but moving forward and not letting it bring me down emotionally. That is a hard thing - especially when you have children of your own and you remember what happened to you at that age.
My mind boggles at the amount of violence inflicted upon children in today's society.
For anyone who's been in care, successfully coming through the system is nothing to with money or success; it's the ability to feel love and be loved in return.
Your spirit is your spirit, whether you're religious or whatever.
What shocks me is that so many people leave care and become homeless, and when you're homeless you get into crime, prostitution and drugs, and it is a vicious circle. That's what we need to change
Youve got all these books on self help, getting to know yourself, doing the right thing, eating the so-called right foods, even down to what books you have on your shelves. People are encouraged to look to themselves first as opposed to being a part of society.
My name can raise money on a small-budget film.
I think once you're a mother to one, you're a mother to them all.
To be honest with you, a lot of directors can be very lazy.
I am proud of what I've done.
When you've been raised in care, rap music isn't just about guns and sexism. They're talking about real things you can hang on to, problems of identity that you have sympathy with. It's not just about the music, with rap: when I was in care, it meant a whole lot more than that.
If I'm preparing for something and I've got a huge day the next day, I have to get into character the night before to assess the scene. I can't assess a scene unless I'm in character, if that makes sense.
I'll never get a part in a huge action blockbuster.
It's fantastic to strive towards a nice life where you eat nice organic food and your children go to a nice school and you can afford nice clothes and nice perfume and the hypoallergenic make-up. But there's never a day goes by, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, that I don't think about w
I could be equally happy on a film set or in the middle of a field. Samantha Morto
I'm an actor. That's what I'm gifted at. It's what makes me breathe.
I could be equally happy on a film set or in the middle of a field.
I believe it is my duty as a performer to raise issues in the world of things we're afraid to look at.
I was angry but not at God. I feel that you are closer to God when you are messed up. Definitely. That's when you most need God, and God cannot control what man does.
It's like I understand images and some people understand poetry.
I think anybody who has been abused as a kid - and I was abused as a kid, by various people - will say it's irrational because violence is irrational.
We're all living blinkered lives, and we're not seeing what's going on and looking to change it. I'm not saying that everyone has to make a political statement, but we need to be more aware of what's happening and why.
People need to know that you're versatile, otherwise you don't get the opportunities.
I want to prove that you don't have to come from Oxford University or Rada - and you don't have to have parents that support you - to succeed.
