Actress Samantha Morton has revealed that worldwide fame was never on her agenda.

Speaking on behalf of the 'World of Difference' charity campaign, the Oscar-nominee explained that while actresses such as Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller may combine their profession with a great deal of publicity, she chose at an early age to remain out of the limelight.

"I think that someone like Keira Knightley is successful not only for her work, but for the type of area that the media have placed her in," Contactmusic quoted her, as telling inthenews.co.uk.

"And I think there's a level of commitment that goes with that type of profile and very, very early on, I decided that I couldn't cope with that type of pressure.

"I wanted to go travelling for a year, and I wanted to work for charities and I wanted to have children very young - I had my daughter when I was 22 - and in order to do those things, you can't have one and the other," she said.

She added: "You can't be a Hollywood movie star and have the other things at that age. I just made a decision early on to do other things." (ANI)
