Sienna Rose Miller (born December 28, 1981) is an American-born
English actress and model.
Miller was born in New York City. Her father, Edward Miller, is
an American banker; and her mother Jo Miller, is a South African
who ran Lee Strasberg's acting academy in London. Miller moved to
England as a child and attended the Heathfield School in Ascot,
Berkshire and later studied for a year at the Lee Strasberg Institute
in New York City. Culturally, she considers herself English.
For much of her childhood and adolescence, her stepmother was the
English interior decorator Kelly Hoppen. She has one sister, Savannah;
two half-brothers, Charles and Steven; and one former step-sister,
Natasha (daughter of Kelly Hoppen).
Prior to her professional acting career, Miller worked as a photographic
model. She currently models for Pepe Jeans, and she posed for Vanity
Fair magazine's 2006 Hollywood Issue topless and smoking a cigarette.
She had a recurring role in the television series Keen Eddie. Miller
appeared in supporting roles in the 2004 remake of the 1966 movie
Alfie as well as in Layer Cake (2004). She played the female lead
opposite Heath Ledger in the period drama, Casanova (2005).
In 2005, Miller made West End debut as Celia in Shakespeare's As
You Like It to mixed reviews. (The Guardian commented "if she
were in a girls' school show, rather than the West End, you would
think her well above average.") She played the role of Rosalind
for one performance, when Helen McCrory, the actress playing the
lead, fell ill.
Miller has several high-profile projects due out in the next few
years. She stars in the highly anticipated bio-pic of 1960s socialite
and Andy Warhol's muse Edie Sedgwick in the film Factory Girl, set
for a September 2006 release. In 2007, she stars opposite Michelle
Pfeiffer and Robert DeNiro in the sci-fi epic Stardust, as well
as Interview directed by Steve Buscemi.
Miller has also recently been cast in the film version of writer
Michael Chabon's novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, also starring
Max Minghella and Peter Sarsgaard. The project will begin filming
in the summer of 2006 for a 2007 release.
Miller's relationship with Jude Law has frequently featured in the
entertainment press. On Christmas Day of 2004, they became engaged.
However, on July 18, 2005, Law issued a public apology to her for
having an affair with Daisy Wright, the nanny of his children, by
his former wife. Despite attempts to salvage their relationship,
the couple parted in time for Miller to celebrate her single status
at the UK premiere of Casanova in February 2006. The latest reports
from May 29, 2006 state that Miller and Law are "working things
out" with their relationship.
She is frequently noted for her fashion sense and often ranks highly
in "best dressed" lists; often second only to supermodel
Kate Moss. She is particularly credited with popularising "boho-chic",
a "look" which took off after her appearance at the Glastonbury
festival in 2004. This attribution is a little controversial as
many feel Kate Moss is the true originator of this look. However,
it was probably the readiness with which women of differing ages
could identify with Miller and her style that made it seem ubiquitous
during 2004-5. Young "identikits" were often referred
to as "Sienna Millers" or "Siennas".
She is also friends with the fashion designer Matthew Williamson,
who has referred to her as his 'muse'.
Miller currently resides in London and New York.
