I was just searching for interviews to add to our upcoming Press page (more on that soon) when I came across a little tidbit from earlier this year (January) suggesting that Sienna was/is being considered to play Dusty Springfield in a biopic of the singer:
Harper’s Bazaar UK: She played Andy Warhol’s muse Edie Sedgwick in Factory Girl and is due to play the object of Alfred Hitchcock’s obsessive desire Tippi Hedren in an upcoming BBC drama, and now – rumour has it – that Sienna Miller will take on the role of another iconic blonde in a film of Dusty Springfield’s life. That’ll Be the Day writer Ray Connolly has penned a first draft of the script and Miss Miller is top of the list to play the Son of a Preacher singer – watch this space for more info.
I don’t remember reading anything about it at the time, and didn’t post anything about it here. So I decided to do some searching, and came up with a bit more:
As posted about before, Sienna appeared on the Jonathan Ross Show Christmas Special last weekend, and I now have screencaptures and videos from it for you! Sienna looked fabulous in a Peter Pilotto dress, and in the interview she talked about where she would be spending Christmas, her worst Christmas gift, and The Girl. It was a nice interview, and Sienna was as sweet and classy as ever. She also helped out in Jamie Oliver’s cooking spots, making left-overs toasties with chilli salad, a semi-freddo, and a sidecar cocktail – these segments were very funny, and a must-see below!
I think I’ve managed to scrape together videos of the entire show. The first video below is the whole show in one video, although I don’t know if it will play for viewers outside the UK. If it doesn’t, the 6 videos below are the rest of the show split into parts. Hopefully you will be able to see one or the other of this batch of vids.
Over 300 screencaptures from the whole show can be found in the Gallery!
Sienna on her worst Christmas gift: “I was thrilled to open up this gorgeous underwear, because girls love getting nice underwear. Then I held the knickers up and realised they were crotchless. She didn’t realise and she was horrified. There was this moment of kind of ‘thank you so much’. And then I got pregnant, so there we go.”
It’s 28/12 which means Happy Birthday Sienna Miller! We’d like to send her big birthday wishes, and hope she spends a special day being spoiled by her loved ones.
It’s been a fantastic year for Sienna both personally and professionally, with the birth of her daughter, and the success of The Girl and her Golden Globe nomination for it. The year ahead will hopefully be just as positive, starting off with the Golden Globe Awards themselves in the middle of January, and then hopefully the release of several films throughout the year. We are continually intrigued to see what Sienna will do with her career next, and wish her the absolute best in every part of her life.
Feel free to leave your birthday wishes for Sienna by posting a comment below.
Check back later for at least one gallery/site update to mark Sienna’s big day
Sienna Online would like to wish our lovely visitors, as well as Sienna and her family and loved ones, a very Merry Christmas! We hope your holidays are filled with shiny presents, yummy food, loved ones and most importantly lots of Christmas joy! Sienna’s is bound to be extra special this year as it is baby Marlowe’s very first Christmas so we hope it’s the best ever for them!
As posted about a few days ago, Sienna will be appearing on the Jonathan Ross Show Christmas Special, which airs tonight in the UK on ITV1 at 9pm. Photos from the taping of the show have just been released, and the show looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun!! I love Sienna’s dress, and it’s nice to see her reunited with her Flare Path co-star Sheridan Smith too. Check out these pics in our Gallery, and be sure to switch onto/record ITV1 to watch the episode tonight.
To promote the UK airing of the film, 15 new stills from The Girl have been released! Find them in the Gallery:
• The Girl > Stills x15 more
For the first of 3 updates coming here today, I have added scans from Sienna’s current Harper’s Bazaar UK cover. It’s a really goregous shoot – definitely one of my favourites from recent years – and a big spread too! Definitely one that is worth picking up.
Unfortunately these are digital scans so some of the pages have horrible watermarks all over them – sorry about that! This is the best I can get at the moment, so if someone would be willing to scan the magazine themselves for us then we would be extra grateful.
Still, enjoy these beautiful new pics of Sienna…
Catch Sienna on the Jonathan Ross Show this Saturday – December 22nd – at 9pm! She is one of several celebrities to be featured on the Christmas special of the show. It is sure to be a very funny interview, so tune in/record if you can.
I will be on the lookout afterwards for a video of the interview to post here…
When Sienna Miller met Tippi Hedren
Tippi Hedren endured Alfred Hitchcock’s claustrophobic attention for years, while Sienna Miller – who plays her in a new film – has her own experiences of being hounded. Here, they talk to Tim Adams about the dark side of being a star
Last week Sienna Miller was starting to think about her first Christmas as a mother. Her voice was freighted with all the emotional weariness of a woman who knows the particular joys of surviving for too long on only an hour or two’s unbroken sleep. Her daughter Marlowe, now four months old, was on her lap. A good deal had happened since I interviewed her in the summer about her forthcoming TV movie The Girl, in the company of “the girl” in question, Tippi Hedren, the actor, who was muse and obsession to Alfred Hitchcock in the 1960s.
As well as becoming a mother, and travelling to the States for the American launch of The Girl with Hedren – with whom she seemed to have struck up an uncommon bond, based on a kind of glamorous sisterly solidarity across the decades – she has been working. Until recently she was on a film in Pittsburgh with Bennett Miller, director of Capote and Moneyball. “Though I know I had promised myself not to work so soon after the birth,” she says, “it was too good an opportunity to turn down.” As a result Marlowe “has been on about 15 planes already”, along with her frayed-nerved mother and her father, actor Tom Sturridge.
Miller had also been getting her head around the substance of the Leveson report. This time last year she had been one of the starriest witnesses to the inquiry, describing in detail her harassment by the paparazzi – “like living in some sort of video game where they pre-empted my every move” – as well as the hacking of her phone, for which she had received £100,000 in damages from News International. I wondered what she had made of the outcome.
The September 2012 issue of UK Glamour magazine had a 2-page feature on The Girl, going behind the scenes of the film. It’s a nice article, and you can now find scans in our Gallery:
