Sienna Miller on Her Career: I dont really have a strategy or a game plan. I think as soon as I did, everything would fail. Id love to do supporting roles and leading roles. Any kind of role with a good character. I dont mind if it was tiny or huge, just to do good work and to grow and to get better. To work with great people. I have a list of a few people in my head that I would love to work with.
Asked who is on that list, Miller said, Michel Gondry Id love to work with. I should really think about this now. Cate Blanchett I think is extraordinary. Thinking people I could learn from Sean Penn and Robin Wright-Penn I love. Who else? Lots of people. Ang Lee I think is a great director. I know Im missing people.
Sienna Millers Not Looking for Glamorous Roles: Im kind of more drawn to [the unconventional] I think. I just want to creatively grow and be inspired. I dont want to do anything generic or dumb. Its not about being the star, I don't think.
Miller says its really all about loving what you do and not about being treated like a movie star. I just love what I do but I think because Im fascinated by people more than celebrity or being treated or pampered, that makes me very uncomfortable. I like studying people, finding interesting people, because I think you grow as a person and also understand people better. Its more of a sociological study, what I do. I just did a play for five months, Shakespeare in the West End. Its about experiences and traveling and people. I dont really just want to be the girl.
Speaking of Being The Girl : What if Daniel Craig asked the producers to make her a Bond girl? Miller said, I don't think its the right time for me to be a Bond girl. I think it might undo the hard work that Ive been doing this year. I don't know if Daniel Craig would talk to the producers about me being a Bond girl.
As for what she thinks of her Layer Cake co-star Daniel Craig getting the role of Bond, James Bond, Miller said she believes it was absolutely the right choice. I think hes a brilliant actor, very strong and powerful actor. I think its exciting that theyd be taking Bond back to being more of a misogynist, more interesting than he has become. And I think Daniel has a kind of gritty realism that will be really interesting in that role.
Sienna Millers Next Project: The Edie Sedgwick movie. Factory Girl its called, playing Edie Sedgwick. Its about Edie Sedgwick who was Andie Warhols muse in the 60s and just kind of focusing on that quite pivotal moment in time. She was very destructive, a big drug addict and died at 28. Its pretty sad.
Sienna Miller Explains the Appeal of Playing Edie Sedgwick: I just think anybody who is that self-destructive is intriguing. She had a real light. She was vibrant and fascinating and kind of started a big movement in the 60s, and burned out because she was misguided and abused. [She] just had an interesting life. I just think shes a pretty tortured soul, but thats quite fascinating in a sick kind of way.
The Challenges of Tackling That Particular Role: Playing somebody who really existed is challenging. You want to do it justice because I think you realize that youre the one thats carrying the mantle on. Accent, her voice, vocal physicalities, the way she smoked, the way she talked. Being able to be destructive but also have an audience sympathize with you. Not being seen as some drug addict, but actually to make people feel that shes a drug addict as a result of a very tortured life - a lot. Im terrified.
Sienna Miller on Researching Sedgwick: Its fascinating. Even if this film is terrible, the experience of researching it has been so fascinating. I was with her husband, Michael Post, in Santa Barbara last week and have been hanging out with the people from The Factory that are still alive. Brigid Berlin and Danny Fields and all these incredible, real 60s characters. Theres an awful lot of perks. Im going to Pittsburgh this weekend to the Warhol museum. Guy Pearce is playing Andy Warhol and hes fantastic. I think hes going to do a great job. Im very excited.
The Status of Camille: That would be after Factory Girl. Id really like to do it. Its a really fun part and really satirical and kind of dark, so hopefully Ill be doing that. Its another independent, so my agents, Im not sure how theyre going to feel about that.
