British beauty Sienna Miller credits her mother JO's artistic streak with inspiring her acting ambitions.

The ALFIE star, who launched her acting career when she just 20, claims watching 1959 comedy caper Some Like It Hot drew her to the silver screen.

The 24-year-old actress tells Hotdog magazine, "I think watching Some Like It Hot when I was three (made me want to be an actress). It just looked so much fun.

"And my mother is very creative; she took us to the theatre all the time."
