MINORITY REPORT stunner Samantha Morton embraced the naked theme at Tuesday's (16APR03) opening of London's new SAATCHI GALLERY - by failing to wear underpants.

Scores of volunteers stripped off to pose nude for a photoshoot by artist Spencer Tunick, and sexy Morton decided to do her bit for the bare cause.

Although the Hollywood star was sporting a black mini-dress, she proudly announced, "I'm not wearing any knickers."

She continued, "CHARLES SAATCHI sent a DAIMLER for me and the seats are incredibly high. It's really difficult to make a ladylike descent.

"To be honest, though, I'd be just as happy to show up on my bike."
