Sienna Miller: ‘Getting older is a massive relief. I don’t mind about wrinkles’

Dec 19th, 2016       Filed in: Photoshoots ,Press       Comments: 0

Sienna Miller is hitting 35, fighting sexism in film, taking her career to new heights and living in a Manhattan brownstone with her ex-partner and their daughter. It’s all terribly modern, she tells The Telegraph

The last time I interviewed Sienna Miller was in Venice about 13 years ago. She was living in the city while filming Casanova with Heath Ledger. Jude Law, her high-profile boyfriend at the time, was somewhere in the vicinity.

She’d only made two films and neither had yet been released but Miller was already famous. I turned up at the designated bridge, red-faced and very, very late. ‘You came running across the Rialto,’ she laughs. ‘And then we just got pissed.’


’Tis true. It might have been the first time I’d drunk prosecco. How things change. A lot of prosecco has flowed under the bridge since then. Miller will be 35 in a few weeks’ time and has now made well over 20 films.
She has gone out of favour, come back into favour; she’s done Shakespeare in the West End (As You Like It, 2005) and Cabaret on Broadway (2015). She has won a TV Bafta nomination for her role as Tippi Hedren in The Girl.

The Jude and Sienna headlines are over and done with. The News of the World, which became the bane of Miller’s life by writing most of them, has been shut down. And Miller is now the mother of a four-year-old girl called Marlowe.

No booze this time, sadly. It’s lunchtime and we’re in a chic, busy café in New York City’s West Village, because this is where Miller lives now. She moved with Marlowe and Marlowe’s father, her former fiancé, actor Tom Sturridge, en masse on ‘August the 25th’.

They are living in a spacious end-of-terrace brownstone in the neighbourhood that we visit later. ‘It’s amazing [it is] and totally unsustainable. I can do it for about six months and then it’s downhill,’ she laughs. ‘I felt like I’d uprooted everyone, so I said, “Let’s just chuck money at it.” And now the reality is Marlowe’s loving school, Tom’s loving it…’

She and Sturridge are living together not in a romantic sense but as a family. ‘It’s cool. It works. I know, it’s very modern. We do everything together and I’m very lucky to have managed to retain that. Genuinely.’

Just back from film promotion in Los Angeles, she may be nursing a cold and saying she looks rubbish, but with no make-up and lightly tanned skin she looks anything but.

An amenable chatterer, she offers ideas for good reads, asks for suggestions of interesting women for a documentary her friend is making, talks about her girl-crush on Zadie Smith, her new New York friend (‘She’s the coolest, chicest, so beautiful!’).

It’s not until later when we’re out on the street and she’s swinging along in a rather fabulous olive-green Burberry coat and black sunglasses that I think, ah, yes, she’s a movie star.

She’d been mulling over a move to New York for ages – she was born in the city and her father, Ed Miller, a banker-turned-art dealer still lives here.

And when she realised she’d have to do a lot of press interviews for her next two films in the States, it seemed better to move ‘for at least a year’ than continually uproot Marlowe.

The first of the films (out next month) is Live by Night, an epic Prohibition drama about bootlegging and organised crime, written and directed by Ben Affleck, who also stars in it.

As his directorial follow-up to 2012’s Oscar-winning Argo, it’s attracted a stellar cast – including Zoë Saldana, Elle Fanning and Brendan Gleeson. Affleck plays a disaffected former soldier who has turned to crime.

Miller plays Emma Gould, his crooked Irish girlfriend, who’s also the moll of the biggest Irish mobster in Boston (Albert White – a menacingly bad-toothed Robert Glenister), and she delivers a cracking Cork accent for it.

She’s no sweet-talker, Gould. ‘Oh, she’s a damaged creature,’ says Miller. ‘Which is fascinating to explore. I loved the script. I loved that there were three really strong female characters, and it was lyrical and I love words.’

She’d never worked with Affleck before but the first screen test she ever did – the first time she went to LA – was when she was 20, to test with him for a John Woo film, Paycheck. ‘I didn’t get it but he was a champion and supporter from afar, little notes here and there.’

Wasn’t it an odd experience, given that Affleck had written the script (based on Denis Lehane’s novel) and was also starring, directing and producing? ‘Well, it was extraordinary,’ she says, ‘but I think he really thrives with that much responsibility.

‘It must take a certain degree of… you have to watch yourself [in a scene] and say, “I wanna go again,” which I think I’d feel indulgent about. But you have to get something for the edit – even if people think you’re a twat. And that’s his words more than mine.’

It’s a sweeping production – one wonders if Affleck has perhaps taken on too much this time – and there’s a striking relevance to some of its themes: immigration, race, the Ku Klux Klan. ‘I just saw Ben over the weekend and he said, “Maybe if I’d known Trump was going to be elected, I might have held back.

‘It almost feels too much of a comment on what’s going on now.” It’s incredibly current and frightening to think how cyclical these things are.’

What timing she’s got, leaving the UK post-Brexit, straight into the US election. ‘I know. Outer Mongolia is looking like an option,’ she sighs. ‘It feels very unstable, the whole world.’ She’s found it particularly difficult parenting her way through the last few weeks.

‘I was totally projecting my politics on to my daughter. I’d been saying, “That’s the bad man and this is the woman and it will be the FIRST time it could be a woman president!”

‘Then we woke up and people were literally weeping in the streets. I’d really villainised him and I didn’t want to say the bad man won but I had to. She said, “But he squeezes people’s privates!” She’d heard that at school and I thought, “Oh my God. How’d you get out of that one?”’

For a while, parenting also changed her work objectives. ‘After I had Marlowe, I wanted to work with great people, the right people. It didn’t even matter about the size of the part or the scale. I wanted to do more “normcore” stuff – like Foxcatcher.’ (This was a 2014 wrestling drama based on a true story.

It was nominated for five Oscars and got Miller talked about as a serious actress again.) What does she mean by ‘normcore’? ‘Just not playing The Girl. Stripped-down, human. No make-up and real people.

‘I think when you’re 30 and a woman you’d better start doing that otherwise you’ll slip by the wayside. And also it’s more interesting.’

She hasn’t worked for much more than three weeks at a time since her daughter was born. ‘That was my cunning plan. Pop in and do these supporting roles on very glamorous things and look like you’re working all the time,’ she laughs. ‘Everyone says, you don’t stop! And I really do. I haven’t shot anything since last December.’

She is excited about The Lost City of Z, which she filmed a while ago and comes out early next year. It’s the true story of a British explorer, Colonel Percival Fawcett, who disappeared in the 1920s while searching for a mysterious Amazonian city.

‘Technically, I play a wife who’s left behind while her husband goes off to explore greatness and I was worried about doing that again after American Sniper.’ (Directed by Clint Eastwood, the 2014 Iraq War film was based on the memoir of Chris Kyle, the US Army’s deadliest marksman. Bradley Cooper played the lead, Miller his wife.)

‘But James Gray, the director of Lost City, is an amazing filmmaker and a feminist and he understood. So we worked really hard to make sure that she was more than that. I felt like in American Sniper I’d slightly gone wrong,’ she says, then tries to explain. ‘There’s a vulnerability to these women, yes, but I didn’t want pity for them. That’s a really easy thing to do.’

Now, she says, she’s ‘ready to start playing roles, not being wives’. People have told her she needs to do a blockbuster or a Marvel movie to have ‘foreign value’ and get offered good parts. ‘All that number crunching that I think is bollocks.’ She doesn’t want to do one yet.

‘The Marvels are quite fun but it’s got to be the right one. I was sent a superhero script that flashed back to how the character became what she was. You saw her being a petty thief and the line was, “She steals 20 bucks and stuffs it in her starter bra.” I was nearly sick! This has gone through 8,000 executives and everyone thinks it’s OK to send out to women. I threw it in the bin.’

Next up, potentially, is the lead in The Burning Woman, a role previously destined for Anne Hathaway. Directed by Jake Scott, son of Ridley, it’s set in a blue-collar industrial town in the US and is the story of a 32-year-old woman whose teenage daughter goes missing, leaving her with an infant grandson to raise.

‘I think I’m going to do it,’ Miller says. It shoots in March and will be finished in time for her to return to London, where she’s in the middle of signing to do Tennessee Williams’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at Wyndham’s Theatre.

Already, she thinks it will be good to go back to England. She misses ‘my friends, nice pubs, the countryside. I went upstate here but it just feels like a horror film to me. American woods – I just go straight to The Blair Witch Project.’

She’s extremely close to her mother Jo, a former assistant to David Bowie, and her sister Savannah, with whom she used to have a fashion label. Savannah has started a bridal line ‘and she’s doing more design work out here. I’m hoping to lure her over.’ They’ll be reunited this week in London for Christmas.

‘This year I really want to be organised. I’m that person on Christmas Eve crying in Selfridges because I’m panic buying,’ she says.

Having spent the holiday with Sturridge’s family last year, it’s their turn with her family and Tori Cook, her oldest friend from school and also her publicist. ‘It will be pyjamas and too much booze and a few fights. We always aspire to be elegant but don’t really get there.’

On December 28 she will hit the big three-five. ‘Thirty-five feels really grown-up. That’s a proper woman,’ she says looking anguished. ‘I don’t mind. There are so many things I love about getting older.

‘It’s a massive relief in many ways. I don’t mind about wrinkles, that kind of stuff can be quite gorgeous and whatever. It’s more that sense you get after you have children. Time starts running out and I really…’ she pauses. ‘I really like being alive.’
