Samantha Morton in Code 46 (2003)

She has a reputation for being difficult on set, by her own admission: in an interview given with The Guardian Weekend magazine in 2009, she stated that it was fair enough to tell crew members to shut it if they were chatting away while she was giving it her all - she works hard and expects others to do so, too.

Tim Robbins and Samantha Morton in Code 46 (2003)

In early 2008, she revealed that she had been "close to death" after suffering a debilitating stroke due to being hit by a piece of 17th-century plaster that fell on her head (damaging her vertebral artery) in 2006 causing partial paralysis and loss of vision. She was in hospital for three weeks after the incident. She withdrew from the public spotlight and took an 18-month break from film acting to spent time in physical and speech therapy, learning how to walk and remaster her speaking skills. She went straight from therapy into filming Synecdoche, New York (2008). She reports "I still have a slight dis-fluency, sentences are spaced differently, but I was given a clean bill of health.".

Was Terry Gilliam's original choice for the role of Angelika in The Brothers Grimm (2005), but Bob Weinstein and Harvey Weinstein vetoed it. According to Morton, they said the tops of her arms were "too fat" and "You think Matt [Damon] or Heath [Ledger] would want to fuck that?". She was replaced by Lena Headey.
