LATEST: Actress Sienna Miller has won back her role as pop artist ANDY WARHOL's muse Edie Sedgwick in forthcoming movie FACTORY GIRL - two months after movie bosses reportedly dumped her from the production in favour of a "bigger role".

Earlier this year (begs09MAY05) British newspapers reported Jude Law's fiancee Miller lost the part because she was not famous enough, although the English beauty insisted the film clashed with her role in London play AS YOU LIKE IT.

But movie insiders claim Miller's celebrity status has been helped by Law's admission he had an affair with his children's nanny DAISY WRIGHT three months into his seven-month engagement to Miller.

The 23-year-old will now play drug-addict Sedgwick, as well as QUEEN OF Sparta in forthcoming movie 300, reports British newspaper The Daily Mirror.

A movie insider says, "This is not the way Sienna would have liked to have won the role of Edie Sedgwick or a big action role.

"But she is not going to kick a gift horse. Professionally speaking, being so badly treated by Jude is the best thing that's happened to Sienna.

"Now she's deemed A-list famous. If you're in the papers you've made the grade and American movie producers want you."
