3 OCTOBER 2007

Samantha Morton's claim to being "a bit boring" was in tatters when her new film premiered in front of an audience which included Kate Moss, Sadie Frost and Hollywood beauty Rosario Dawson.

The Oscar-nominated actress - who's heavily pregnant with her second child - got a warm greeting from the famous cover girl at the screening of Control, a bio-pic about the life of Joy Division founder, Ian Curtis, who pioneered electric-based rock music.

In the past Samatha - who is to marry the father of her unborn child, filmmaker Harry Holm, next year - has earned a reputation for shunning the celebrity circuit, but the 30-year-old says her pregnancy has left her "über-relaxed" about such things.

While the Minority Report star was rubbing shoulders with the glitterati in London, across the Atlantic the Brit pack were out in force for a special New York screening of Sleuth.

Jude Law, Michael Caine and director Kenneth Branagh were joined by the ever-glamorous Joan Collins as they presented their remake of the Seventies mystery.
