Sienna Miller

Biography

Sienna Miller (born 28.12.1981)

Sienna Miller is a British (though American born) actress and model.

Sienna Miler: Childhood

Sienna Miller was born in New York to Edward Miller, an American banker and art dealer and Jo Miller, who was previously secretary to David Bowie and also ran Lee Strasberg's acting academy in London.

Sienna moved with her parents to London when she was one. She later attended Heathfield St. Mary's School, a Berkshire boarding school.

Sienna Miller: Modelling Career

Before taking up acting, Sienna worked as a model. During her time as a model she appeared in advertisements for Coca-Cola, Pepe Jeans London and Prada as well as appearing in the Pirelli calendar in 2003.

Sienna Miller: Acting Career

Miller's acting career started out with a number of amateur theatre performances in New York, including an appearance in Anthony Minghella's Cigarettes & Chocolate.

Sienna's film debut came in 2001, in the film South Kensington, in which she starred alongside Elle Macpherson and Rupert Everett. She then went on to appear in High Speed (2002) and The Ride (2002). The following year, she featured in the TV drama Keen Eddie.

By 2004, Miller had begun to earn roles in slightly higher profile films, such as the remake of Alfie, which starred Jude Law, as well as Layer Cake, in which she co-starred with Daniel Craig.

Sienna Miller's professional stage debut came in 2005, as Celia in the West End production of As You Like It. Sienna performed for one night, as Helen McCrory's understudy.

Up until 2006, Miller had received little acclaim for her acting performances, with many critics struggling to take her work seriously, overshadowed, as it was, by her socialite status and regular appearances in gossip magazines. However, in 2006, her appearance as Edie Sedgewick in the film Factory Girl was widely applauded, though the film itself was surrounded by controversy.

In 2007, Sienna Miller had a number of movie roles. She appeared alongside Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer in Stardust, as well as starring in Interview, opposite Steve Buscemi. She also appeared as an 'undead bride' in Camille, though the film was a flop and did not gain a widespread cinema release.

2008 was also a busy year for Sienna Miller. She appeared in The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, as well as filming the Dylan Thomas biopic The Edge of Love, with Keira Knightley and the film Hippie Hippie Shake, featuring Cillian Murphy.

Sienna Miller: Personal Life

Sienna Miller's relationship with Jude Law was often featured in the tabloid press pages. The pair became engaged on Christmas Day, 2004. Seven months later, Law publicly apologized for having an affair with his children's nanny. Miller and Law's relationship was then on and off for some time before they finally split in November 2005.

For almost a year, Miller dated the Welsh actor Rhys Ifans. This relationship was then followed by an ill-advised one with actor Balthazar Getty. Getty was still married at the time of the relationship and a public backlash against Sienna Miller saw her London home defaced. Miller was also responsible for the temporary split between Sean Penn and his wife Robin Wright-Penn.

In 2006, Sienna Miller was forced to publicly apologise for calling Pittsburgh 'Shitsburgh' in a Rolling Stone interview, whilst filming for The Mysteries of Pittsburgh.
