    Default Sienna Miller: ‘I struggled in Hollywood’ because of my ‘tabloidy’ persona

    Praise from Clint Eastwood on Sniper: “Yeah, he’s quick. I definitely had heard that before I started shooting, so I was, like, ‘I better bring it on the first take.’ But if you want another one, he’ll give you another one. I understand this way of working now — there is something about the first time you say a line that can never really be repeated. Normally, I’m anxious and over-complicated and my process is quite thorough. I would keep going because I very rarely feel satisfied. But somehow with him, he’s so relaxed that you just kind of trust it. On our first day, after we’d shot an emotional scene, I went up to him, ‘I was just thinking, maybe –’ and he was, like, ‘Have a great weekend.’ And as he was walking away he said, ‘You cast the right people,’ and that was the end of the day and I was, like, ‘Whoa.’ So that was kind of a great day — liberating. But then I had a bit of a meltdown.”

    On her second act as an actress:
    “I think it’s narrow-minded. I struggled in Hollywood because people had really strong perceptions of who I was and it was hard to see me as anything other than this persona. I just think I was well known for the wrong things, maybe. My personal life. It got very tabloidly. My phone got hacked and I was in newspapers all the time in London, which is the most vicious city in the world for that kind of attention. Or I was known for being fashionable.”


    How she fought that perception:
    “I sued everyone in England, basically. [Laughs] I have an injunction against paparazzi, so that’s now illegal. I obviously went to court with News of the World and the phone hacking and all of that. I took active steps and worked very hard to have a private life, which I have now had and enjoyed for six years. … So as a result of not having all those photos and not being on social media, I felt I’ve had the space to do my work.”


    She tried social media:
    “I did have Instagram for a week, and it sort of fueled the worst part of my soul. I’d wake up every morning and have more followers and people were, like, ‘Welcome! We love you!’ And I was like, ‘Hee-hee, wow! This is actually fulfilling me!’ But I realized it was filling that part of you that will not ever be filled.”

    [From LA Times]

    It's weird. I don't feel like she took a 6 year break from being tabloidy but I guess? Perhaps when you shoot to fame for f*ing a married "it" guy (at the time), your tabloid persona sticks. First impressions and all that.

    I like her though.

    I saw her in that crappy swashbuckling thing she did (Zorro? Casanova? She wore a bodice) and I didn't like her one bit, she was OK as Edie Sedgwick but I just don't like her face. And she's trashy, not tabloidy.

    I don't even remember if she actually broke up Jude Law's marriage or not but I would agree their relationship was tabloidy at the time, him cheating with the nanny and all that rot.

    When she crossed over from tabloidy to trashy was the whole Balthazar Getty thing, where he didn't even bother to leave his wife, first the topless vacation photos...and I don't think I'll ever forget those terrace foreplay photos of them, him with his pants around his ankles and all that fondling, oh my. Sorry, but she can't blame the tabloids for that, sure the paps followed them but it was trashy trashy trashy and they damn sure flaunted it.

    I like her a lot, but she wasn't a "tabloidy persona". She got caught fucking a married dude, and the pictures were in the rags. That's not a persona--that's you whoring around! Own it, sister! Don't weasel around with words.

    Speaking of Balthazar Getty, haven't seen him in awhile...I was doing a little googling and this fairly recent pic came up of him and the wife. Ummm wtf, I didn't even recognize him. Is this his new persona? (hoping it's for a role or something)

    that hair sucks balls. the wife looks like she's clinging to him for dear life, and he looks like he's waiting for the nearest opportunity to bolt.

    ^ I know, when I first saw the pic I thought, who's that weird surfer guy she's with. Oh wait...

    She was good in Factory Girl. The way to make everyone forget her horrendous start is to make good films not blame the tabloids.
