Morton Condemns 'Moaning' Actors

British star SAMANTHA MORTON has criticised actors who are dissatisfied with their careers - insisting they should stop "moaning" and enjoy their privileged existence. The 30-year-old actress - who picked up a Golden Globe earlier this month (Jan08) for her role in TV drama Longford - is convinced Hollywood stars should be more realistic about their problems. And she's especially scathing of those who resent wearing restricting costumes while working on period dramas. She says, "They (actors) are moaning - but what for? They've got a job. It's tough, the hours are tough, the corsets are tough. But try working in a factory for 16 hours or emptying the bins on Tottenham Court Road (in central London). Actors! They shouldn't moan! How dare they!"
