Sienna Miller (born 28.12.1981) Sienna Miller is a British (though American born) actress and model.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Joe Coughlin was born and raised in a good family, his father was the police captain and they were a respected family in the neighbourhood. Joe was the dark horse and fell in with the wrong crowd from an influential age. It was 1920's and Joe and the rest of the Coughlin family lived in the thriving city of Boston. Joe constantly seemed to be pulling in a different direction to that of his father and mixed with some of the town's most feared bosses responsible for any number of crimes from running alcohol to robbery.
Caught in the middle of a war between mob bosses, Joe ends up ripping off the wrong guy in more than one way as he also steals his woman. Everything appears to be going for Joe and his small gang but their next heist is a chance too far and sees Joe being put in prison for robbery. Once again, Joe finds himself falling in with another powerful boss who offers him protection in prison - but at a cost.
With his eventual release, Joe moves to Florida to begin over seeing a rum smuggling operation but as Joe finds love he begins to realise that there's more to life than working on someone else's terms but perhaps he's too deeply connected to ever be able to give up the life he's made for himself.
The two actors met on the set of Alfie in 2004 and had an on-off relationship until 2011.
Sienna Miller has opened up about her ex fiancé Jude Law, revealing that she still cares about him ‘enormously’. Speaking to Porter magazine Miller, who split from actor Tom Sturridge last year, said that though her exes might be a ‘motley crew’ they all have one important quality in common, ‘intelligence’.

After a string of award-winning arthouse hits like Kill List and A Field in England, director Ben Wheatley and writer Amy Jump stumble with this adaptation of the 1970s J.G. Ballard novel. The satirical dystopian setting offers buckets of eye-popping visual style, plus outrageously twisted characters the A-list cast have a lot of fun sinking their teeth into. But while the themes are strong, the people on screen are so aggressively loathsome that it's not an easy movie to watch.
It's set in a brutal concrete tower within commuting distance of London, where new resident Robert (Tom Hiddleston) is learning his way around the building's modern, self-contained design. He especially enjoys flirting with his sexy upstairs neighbour Charlotte (Sienna Miller). But the building has a social structure that is creating some serious tension. Wealthy residents like the tower's architect Anthony (Jeremy Irons) live at the top, while economically struggling families like Helen and Richard (Elisabeth Moss and Luke Evans) are closer to the ground, with middle-class families in between. So when the lower floors lose their supply of water and electricity, they revolt against the upper classes, waging all-out war in the hallways.
The political commentary is astute and perhaps even more timely today than it was in 1975, when the novel was written and when the film is set. And each of the characters is full of energy and anger. So it's frustrating that the choppy editing style seems to lose track of people and plot-threads as it shifts around to various angles on the action. This makes all of the violence and sex feel oddly random and excessive, as things get increasingly nasty and each of the people loses the audience's sympathy. Hiddleston has terrific presence, but the film kind of abandons him along the way. While Irons is hamming it up shamelessly, Evans is inexplicably brutal and both Moss and Miller are little more than victims.

Miller appeared on 'Good Morning Britain' to explain why she wasn't wearing a poppy, and that she hadn't intended to be disrespectful.
Sienna Miller has addressed the backlash she received after she appeared on TV last weekend without wearing a commemorative poppy, saying that the criticism has been “a little extreme”.
The actress appeared on the ‘Graham Norton Show’ last Friday (October 30th) to promote her new film Burnt with co-star Bradley Cooper. However, eagle-eyed viewers spotted that she was the only guest not wearing the poppy ahead of Remembrance Sunday this weekend, and many took to social media to air their displeasure, with one branding her a “disrespectful cow”.

Strong characters help hold the attention as this overcooked drama develops, but in the end it feels so concocted that it's difficult to believe. While there's plenty of potential in the premise, the film becomes distracted by irrelevant subplots that try to stir up some tension but never quite manage it. And for a movie about food, the cuisine is simply too abstract to be mouthwatering.
At the centre is Adam (Bradley Cooper), a bad boy chef whose partying ways ended his high-flying career in Paris. After a period of penance in New Orleans, he moves to London to start again, with the goal of finally getting his elusive third Michelin star. Since he has alienated his friends, he turns to Tony (Daniel Bruhl), a guy who always had a soft spot for him and happens to be running a posh restaurant, which Adam quickly takes over. He rustles up some old colleagues (Omar Sy and Riccardo Scamarcio) and hires hot-shot Helene (Sienna Miller) as his sous chef. But his demanding perfectionism is keeping things from running very smoothly.
This set-up is ripe for both black comedy and soul-searching drama, and yet writer Steven Knight throws in irrelevant sideroads including a mandated therapist (the wonderful Emma Thompson), a bitter rival (a jagged Matthew Rhys), a couple of randomly violent loan sharks and a precocious little girl. Even though the actors do what they can to make every scene intriguing, none of these story elements add anything to the overall film. Still, Cooper holds the movie together with sheer charisma, even if his sudden transition from absolute tyrant to cuddly sweetheart isn't terribly convincing. At least he adds some surprising textures to his scenes, and indulges in sparky banter with those around him. And while Miller is solid in her thankless role, even she can't breathe life into such a thinly developed romance.

Miller appeared with her 'Burnt' colleague Bradley Cooper on the BBC chat show, but wasn't wearing a Remembrance Sunday poppy.
The actress appeared on Norton’s Friday night chat show alongside her Burnt co-star Bradley Cooper, but was slammed by eagle-eyed viewers who noticed that she was the only guest who wasn’t wearing a poppy. Fellow stars Dame Maggie Smith and Alex Jennings, as well as the host, had the symbol adorning their clothes.

American Sniper Bradley Cooper talks pots and pans in new movie Burnt
After beefing up for his role in American Sniper, Bradley Cooper and his costar Sienna Miller both headed straight into the kitchen for Burnt, in which Cooper plays a disgraced chef trying to recapture his Michelin-starred glory days.

Not only was it a chance to come down from the physical intensity of American Sniper, but it took him back to his childhood while learning some useful new skills. "When I was a kid I would screw up cooking with my grandmother," he laughs. "It was an Italian family, so cooking was a huge part of it. Being around food is very soothing to me. My grandfather had a garlic business. So basically I'd been doing research since I was a kid!"

As the story snakes south through the United States along the Mississippi River, this movie builds up a bleak, mopey vibe that's difficult to engage with. It's the story of two gambling addicts who think that the answer to all of their problems lies just around the next bend in the river, and it's sharply well written and directed, with astute performances from the lead actors. But it's also relentlessly grim and unsympathetic.
They start their journey in Iowa, where estate agent Gerry (Ben Mendelsohn) is at the end of his rope when he meets cocky gambler Curtis (Ryan Reynolds). There's a spark of recognition between them, as Gerry sees Curtis as himself 10 years younger, thinking maybe he can kickstart his life again. So they hit the road together, heading for a high-stakes poker game in New Orleans. Along the way, they stop to visit Curtis' favourite prostitute (Sienna Miller) in St. Louis and Gerry's bitter ex-wife (Robin Weigert) in Little Rock. And in between, they visit Memphis to win some extra cash. But by the time they reach New Orleans, things are starting to look desperate again.

'Burnt' co-stars Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller are among those showing support for Lawrence's essay.
Miller and Cooper, who were interviewed on the red carpet at the premiere of their new movie Burnt on Wednesday (October 14th), both weighed in on the article that Lawrence published via Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny the previous day.
33 year old Miller revealed that she once turned down a play because she was offered less than half the pay of her male co-star – in a two-person production. She told E! News that she reluctantly did “what we have to start doing, unfortunately, at the expense of our creative dreams… …I walked away from a play I wanted to do because I was offered less than half of what the other man was offered and it was just the two of us.”
Gerry's gambling addiction has gotten way out of hand. He's already lost everything in his quest for winning, so now he's thousands of dollars in debt to nearly everybody he knows. Continually losing doesn't stop him hitting the casino, but when he meets casual poker player Curtis - who unlike Gerry doesn't let a desire for the win take over his life - he forms an unlikely bond and finds that his luck is beginning to turn, but not necessarily in the money stakes. The pair team up in order to go for the big bucks on New Orleans' legendary poker scene, and Curtis soon finds that Gerry needs something big to pull him out of the rut that is his life. He's got to learn that there's more to life than winning, but is he willing to take a gamble on the advice of his mysterious new friend?
