SIENNA MILLER: I'VE CALMED DOWN
Caught up with Sienna Miller in New York for a chat for the first time in seven years. And there was a lot of catching up to do. Since we last talked, which was shortly after she had played Edie Sedgwick in Factory Girl, she has had a baby daughter, now aged two-and-a-half, and is engaged to marry the baby's father, actor Tom Sturridge.
She is also working hard and conscientiously with a massive eight movies awaiting release.
The Sienna of today is a vastly different woman from the girl who built a reputation as a rebellious wild child who did and said anything she wanted and to hell with the consequences.
She realises her reputation beyond the big screen, particularly her affair with married actor Balthazar Getty, who has four children, damaged her film career. "I sabotaged things," she admits. "I burnt a lot of bridges."
But now, she says with a wry smile, "I have a completely different life. I've never been particularly good at conforming to certain things but I think in my twenties I was a little more rebellious. I'm 32 now and I have a baby and I'm too tired to even think about rebellion. I think everyone calms down as they get a bit older."
Sienna, who co-stars in the soon-to-be-released American Sniper and Foxcatcher, is still not quite ready to totally settle down to conformity however.
"I have no imminent wedding plans," she tells me.
