Sienna Miller endured ‘horrible’ two-hour bird attack while filming The Girl
Men off-camera threw boxes of seagulls and pigeons in her face
Factory Girl and Layer Cake actress Sienna Miller had to undergo a two-hour “bird attack” while filming The Girl, a television drama about Alfred Hitchcock’s obsession with the blonde star of his 1963 movie The Birds.
“I did go through a bird attack for two hours. It pales in comparison to what she was subjected to, but it was pretty horrible,” Miller told the Radio Times.
“There were men off-camera with boxes of birds, throwing seagulls and pigeons in my face.”
Miller, 30, plays Tippi Hedren, whom Hitchcock cast after seeing her in a television commercial.
What’s In Sienna Miller’s Stocking? Macmillan Cancer Support’s Stocking Auction Reveals All…
Ever wondered what to buy someone who already has it all? (Yes, we’re talking about you, Sienna.) Us too. So we were more than a little excited to hear that Sienna, along with a host of other celebs including Gwyneth Paltrow, Kelly Rowland and Pixie Lott, revealed all last week for an uber glamorous stocking auction.
Held at St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, the event treated lucky diners to a champagne reception, live entertainment – and the chance to enter a silent auction to win stockings compiled by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Ian Rankin and Kelly Rowland. What’s more, it was all for a great cause. As seen in this week’s Grazia, the auction raised over £95,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support. And in the stockings? Read on, friends…
And finally, Sienna Miller…

When were you happiest?
7 July 2012.
What is your greatest fear?
Losing someone I love.
What is your earliest memory?
My dad’s shoes: funny blue 1980s trainers with an N on the side.
Which living person do you most admire and why?
Liu Xiaobo, for his dignity and wisdom. If we could all have a dose of that perspective, the world would be a better place.
We finally have a UK air date for The Girl! The TV movie will air here in the UK on BBC2 on Boxing Day. UK fans can now turn on their TV’s to any BBC channel and see adverts for the film showing. I can’t wait to see it on the small screen!
The BBC has released its Christmas schedule, and The Girl is included, meaning it will air over the Christmas period here in the UK. I still cannot find an exact date though. There is now an official site (of sorts) for the film on the BBC website, which you can find here.
I will keep you posted on an exact air date. For those interested, we already have HD screencaptures from the film up in our Gallery
Sienna is looking ethereal on the cover of the new January 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK! The 60′s looking photoshoot inside is accompanied by a new interview in which Sienna talks about motherhood, amongst other things.
Within this post are some released quotes from the interview, a behind the scenes video from the photoshoot, and Harper’s Bazaar’s article announcing the issue. And in the Gallery you can find the cover and first two photoshoot pictures. We’ll have scans asap!
“It’s still the most surreal thing, that you can create, that I grew this life inside my stomach, her eyeballs, everything – every little fibre. And I’d expected that she’d be this extension of me and I’d instantly understand who she was because she’d come from me, and then you realise that they are their own people entirely. Very connected to you, of course. But they’re their own person.”
“It’s just been the three of us, which was amazing, and exhausting. We are going to get a nanny, but it felt important to first learn for myself who I was as a parent.”
“It’s the best, the greatest thing in the world… I would do that day a million times again. I would do that day, every day. I loved it. [My body is] not mine – all the attachment to its flaws or any aesthetic attachment is gone. You understand what breasts are for; and I have such enormous respect for my body because of what it can do.”
The magazine hits news-stands on Monday.
Sienna was snapped out and about in New York City last weekend with a smile on her face, so I have added some photos to the Gallery! She looks really pretty (minus the coat!), and is wearing a pair of Savannah’s ‘Gus’ jeans from her new line.
Nous York: Film Review
The Bottom Line
This flubbed French comedy is neither king of the hill nor top of the list.
Géraldine Nakache and Leïla Bekhti look for fame, fortune and Sienna Miller in the Big Apple.
PARIS — As thin and cheesy as a slice of Ray’s Famous pizza, the expat comedy Nous York follows the travails of five French friends trying to make it or break it in the Big Apple. This disappointing sophomore effort from writing-directing duo Géraldine Nakache and Hervé Mimran takes the cast from their breakout hit, All That Glitters, and tosses them into an underwritten, loose-limbed N.Y. séjour that feels much more like an expensive vacation video than a fully developed movie.
Released to coincide with the U.S. presidential elections (a running gag in the film has the characters chanting “Obama” ad nauseam), the wide-scale Pathé release should rack up decent numbers in its first frame, though poor word of mouth may prevent it from breaking the 1M admissions mark, as its predecessor did. Foreign sales outside of Francophonia will likely be scarce, with slim chances Nous York will ever hit the screens of the city it so lovingly celebrates.
