Miller Apologises For Pittsburgh Slur

British actress SIENNA MILLER has said sorry to residents of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for dubbing their city "S**tsburgh". Miller's remarks appear in a new magazine interview, in which she pleads with her interviewer to "pity" her for the location of her latest movie THE MYSTERIES OF PITTSBURGH, an adaptation of MICHAEL CHABON's novel. The 24-year-old says, "Can you believe this is my life? Will you pity me when you are back in your funky New York apartment and I am still in Pittsburgh? I need to get more glamorous films and stop with my indie year." The outburst has deeply offended locals, including Mayor LUKE RAVENSTAHL. He says, "I think obviously we have a great town, and I disagree with her comments. I'm sure in her short experience here she hasn't had the opportunity to have a real look around." On Friday (06OCT06), Miller apologised for the remarks in a statement, insisting she was referring to the fact the movie was shooting mostly at night and she had not had a chance to fully explore the city. She added, "What I have seen of it is beautiful. I came once before to visit The Andy Warhol Museum whilst researching a film and found both the city and its inhabitants warm and gracious." She vowed to tour the city properly this weekend (07-08OCT06).
