Sienna Miller used to have a habit of stealing her mother’s luxury face cream.

The American Woman actress has a dedicated skincare regime, with some of her favourite products including Dr. Nigma Talib’s Hydrating and Plumping Serum, Natura Bisse’s Glyco Extreme Peel, and Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream.

However, in an interview with InStyle.com, Sienna shared that she has always been a fan of La Mer’s Creme de la Mer, and recalled how she once slapped it on her face when her mum Josephine wasn’t looking.

“When I was younger, I used to steal my mother’s when she wasn’t looking,” she told the publication at an event marking the launch of a limited-edition jar of the formula. “I didn’t use that little spoon. I would go and stick my finger in it, so she totally knew when I went at it. There’s something so luxurious about it as a product and it really, really works in a way that very few things do. It always just seemed so luxurious and just aspirational and now I really need it as I get older.”

A 30ml jar of Creme de la Mer costs around $160 (£125). But Sienna is adamant it is worth it, because a little goes a long way.

“You don’t have to use that much,” the 37-year-old insisted. “So, that pot can last quite a long time.”

Previously, Sienna opened up about her skincare routine in a chat with U.S. Vogue back in 2016 and explained that she never wants to resort to cosmetic surgery.

“I just think beautiful skin is the best thing,” she commented. “I’m trying to be better at having facials and maintenance. I don’t want to have surgery, so I just think you have to try and take care of what you’ve got.”

Sienna Miller wishes she could remake her old movies and focus instead on the female characters.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the British actress voiced her frustrations about the lack of substance in some of her past roles, including Bradley Cooper’s wife Taya in American Sniper and Mark Ruffalo’s significant other Nancy Schultz in Foxcatcher, and said she wishes the stories could be retold from their point of view.

“In many cases, I still fantasise about going and retelling the entire movie from my character’s perspective,” she said.

Sienna is “most proud of” her role in the upcoming American Woman, which focuses on her character Debra Callahan, a single mother who has to raise her grandson after her daughter goes missing.

And the 37-year-old credits the #MeToo movement in Hollywood for making an impact on the amount of female-driven stories being told on the big screen.

“It’s the kind of film that is being made today, I think, because of a shift in our industry to focus on telling female stories,” she explained. “I wonder whether people would have been interested in looking at that kind of story. Studios are being much more cautious in how they value women, how they treat women.”

And she was impressed with how her gritty character Debra was received by audiences, who grew to love the single mother during the course of the movie, which follows her over 11 years.

“Men who have seen the film are really shocked by this slutty, messy woman and really loved her by the end,” she noted. “Not one of them asked where the father (of her child) is.”

Sienna Miller wants to see more female-driven character studies onscreen.

The 37-year-old stars in American Woman as Debra, whose only daughter disappears overnight, and she must live her life without knowing if her child is dead or alive.

During an interview with Variety, Miller was quick to note that there aren’t many parts for women which allow them to explore the depth and drama of a character for the full-length of a movie.

“A woman that begins as one person and ends as another, to be able to explore that arc was just unheard of,” the mother-of-one explained. “To get that kind of role – it’s very rare. I hope that it will happen more and more for women and female stories.”

Miller stars alongside Aaron Paul and Christina Hendricks in the drama, and the Mad Men star heaped praise on her co-star, believing her performance is worthy of an Academy Award.

“She definitely deserves (an Oscar nomination),” Hendricks stated. “Every scene I was in with her was ‘wow.'”

Will Sasso, who plays Debra’s brother-in-law Terry, compared watching Miller transform into her grief-stricken character on set to a virtual reality experience.

“Sienna is on fire in this film. It was like the most amazing VR game. I got to experience American Woman the VR experience,” he added.

Miller was quick to reciprocate the praise of her co-stars’ performances by saying, “Everybody just stripped themselves down and was completely raw and open. There was no ego around. No pretension.”

American Woman is set to be released in the U.K. in October.

Sienna Miller won over American Woman director with ‘scrambled’ nature

Sienna Miller’s “scrambled” nature helped her land her new role in American Woman.

The Alfie star portrays Debra Callahan in Jake Scott’s drama, about a single mother forced to raise her grandson after her teenage daughter goes missing, and her scattered behaviour during her first meeting with the director actually worked in her favour.

Jake, the son of famed filmmaker Ridley Scott, was already very keen to secure Sienna’s involvement in the movie, because he recognised the range of her acting talents.

“She could do comedy, but she could also go very deep,” he told WENN. “For example, she’s really subtle in American Sniper and gives an exquisite performance. And she was great in Foxcatcher as well. Both of those portrayals were so beautifully heartfelt. It was one of those meetings that I wanted to go well, because I really thought she was right for the part.”

And his hunch was spot on the moment the two came face-to-face.

“We met at a restaurant and she’d literally just finished working on (2016 crime drama) Live by Night the day before, so when she arrived she was understandably a bit scrambled,” Jake recalled.

“By the time she sat down at the table, all I could see was Deb. She was dropping things and her hair was all over the place. Honestly, it was very funny.”

American Woman was co-produced by Ridley, via his Scott Free Productions firm, and working together really helped Jake hone his skills as a filmmaker as it’s only his third feature length release to date, having made his name as a music video director.

“Having my dad as one of the producers on this project was great,” he said. “Obviously, his name makes a huge difference to the movie’s profile because he’s such an amazing artist.

“By now, I’ve been directing long enough that he only provides support when it’s asked for and where it’s needed. But before each new project, he always reminds me to have fun doing it, and I take that to heart because although it can be really tough making a film, it’s still just a movie. Where he gets more involved is during post-production – he had a lot to say when he saw the first cut.”

His feedback must have paid off – American Woman garnered generally positive reviews from critics following its world premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, and is currently on limited release in North America.

Sienna Miller: ‘I’ll still squeeze into short dresses when I’m a granny’

Sienna Miller has admitted that she has no plans to change her personal style as she gets older.

The Stardust actress made the comments during an interview for InStyle when she began to look back at some of her favourite clothes that she had worn through the years.

The actress immediately references the gold Burberry dress that she wore to the 2006 Met Gala and confessed that, while some may not deem it to be age appropriate, she’ll never stop wearing it.

“There’s going to come a point where I’m just too old to be wearing something that short,” the star mused, before adding that she’ll “probably be a granny (and) still squeezing into that thing!”

The G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra star said that she has no plans to get rid of the sequinned number, and revealed that she also has the same design in silver that she wears every Christmas.

“I know I’ll have my Burberry dresses forever though,” the 37-year-old insisted. “My daughter will probably wear them one day.”

Sienna went on to share how her style has changed through the years, and claimed that she prefers natural beauty over too much hair and make-up

“I think people look more beautiful if they look like themselves and don’t feel pressured into a certain thing,” she reflected. “It’s the same with hair and make-up, sometimes they try to make you look vastly different from yourself.

“I used to feel the pressure to let them do what they wanted, and now I’d say, ‘Hey, not too much hair and make-up’.”

Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne fighting single-use plastic with new bottle design

Two of fashion’s biggest names, Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne, are hoping to put an end to single-use plastic by designing a reusable bottle to help the cause. 

The pair has teamed up with Sky Ocean Rescue and ocean conservation movement Project 0 on new initiative #PassOnPlastic, which aims to educate and encourage people to reuse bottles and other plastic items.

Alongside the models, celebrities including Sienna Miller, Rita Ora, Princess Eugenie, Ronnie Wood, Will Poulter, Bob Geldof, TV presenter Fearne Cotton, and soccer star Harry Kane have also designed bottles for the project.

Talking about her design Save The Wave, a white bottle with an illustration of a shark and waves, Kate told Cover Media: ”The ocean has boundless beauty. The gifts it has given the world are countless. My design is meant to represent the hope I have for the ocean, for its health and its future.”

Creative Cara’s Bubble Trouble bottle is a colourful design, featuring different sea life floating in bubbles.

“My design represents how the plastic we use is suffocating marine life and causing so much damage. I hope that you’ll join me in making a change,” she enthused.

The bottles retail for $32 (£25) and are available to buy from Sky.com/POP. They can also be snapped up from a Pass On Plastic pop-up shop in London’s Soho until January (19).

Other products on offer include a coffee cup, a tote bag, an on-the-go cutlery set and a three-piece beeswax wrap set which is an alternative to cling film. The range makes up five of the most common single-use plastic items currently contributing to the quarter of a tonne of plastic entering our oceans every second.

All proceeds from the range will go to initiatives protecting ocean health, such as Sky Ocean Rescue’s partnership with WWF-UK.

Sienna Miller would happily star in a Marvel film because it would boost her visibility as an actress.

Known for her independent film role choices, Sienna has mainly steered clear of big box office movies.

However, the 36-year-old wouldn’t be adverse to joining the mega-successful Marvel franchise, alongside the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Chadwick Boseman and Scarlett Johansson as a comic book character.

“I think it’s sort of essential to have that kind of visibility and that box office,” she mused to Variety. “I’ve been very much drawn to independent cinema my whole life and have resisted bigger films for artistic reasons or I’ve been doing plays, but I do see the benefits in being in something that people really want to see and that is guaranteed to make money.”

She adds that starring in a large studio production would also help fund her indie movies, a move she thought she made with 2014’s American Sniper.

“Although American Sniper was at the time the most successful R-rated movie,” she continued of the Oscar-winning film she starred in with Bradley Cooper. “I thought I got some numbers from that, but I don’t know that I did. I know that I can get small movies like this (new film American Woman) made, and that’s great because I love this. It would be un-business savvy to say I would never do a Marvel movie.”

But pressed on which Marvel character she’d like to play, Sienna had to admit comic books were never her forte growing up.

“Catwoman? I think that’s not going to happen. Someone’s doing that,” she smiled of the DC Comics character. “Who would be a good one? Maybe Spider-Woman. I’ll be a whole new take.”

Sienna Miller outlines directing ambitions

Sienna Miller is hoping to step behind the camera and direct one day.

Numerous big-name stars juggle directing work alongside acting, such as Angelina Jolie, Clint Eastwood and Ben Affleck, and it looks like Sienna could soon make that list after she shared her filmmaking ambitions during an interview with Variety.

“One day, I would (like to direct),” she stated, adding: “I don’t think I’m there yet. It’s such an enormous commitment.

“I think I’m going to start producing. I’m basically optioning books at the moment. I have set up a company and I’m reading things, and it feels like now is the time. I think I have a really strong understanding of the sensibility that I like, how to get a film made and what stories I want to tell.”

Since her breakout role in 2004’s Layer Cake, the 36-year-old has become known for her roles in indie movies, and her latest film, American Woman, is no different.

Starring alongside Aaron Paul and Christina Hendricks in the drama, about a woman who raises her young grandson after her daughter goes missing, Sienna shared that she had an “intuitive understanding” of the part as soon as she read the script.

And in the wake of the Time’s Up movement, which rallies against sexual harassment in the workplace, the English star is certain that roles for actresses in independent films are getting better.

“I think as the cultural shift in terms of gender equality, I think the content is incredibly female-driven, which is something I never really experienced before,” she said. “I think, psychologically, to a lot of people, it’s given them confidence that they never had before. I certainly feel that in myself. I’m sure I can credit that to this movement. I think that people are very conscious of just casting somebody as the wife.”

American Woman premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday (09Sep18).

Maria Grazia Chiuri talks revival of Dior’s ‘timeless’ Saddle Bag

Maria Grazia Chiuri considers Christian Dior’s classic Saddle Bag to be the “perfect” accessory.

The handbag was first launched by former Dior designer John Galliano in October 1999 as part of his spring/summer 2000 ready-to-wear fashion show and quickly became an It Bag, with celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Sienna Miller, Beyonce and Sarah Jessica Parker all snatching it up at the time.

Nearly two decades since the Saddle Bag was first released, Chiuri has reinvented the kidney-shaped accessory as part of her fall/winter 2018 range, with the new bags now available to purchase.

“I thought this collection would be an opportunity to revive its timeless beauty,” she said of her decision to revive the design in a statement. “I consider this icon of the house’s recent history the perfect accessory to deal with this battle that is daily life.”

Chiuri’s Saddle Bag is available in two different sizes and in a variety of different fabrics, including black, navy and red leather as well as denim patchwork and beaded options. The bag comes with a strap which allows it to be worn cross-body and still features the equestrian references of the original, such as the D-shaped stirrup and leather straps.

“The Saddle Bag is a bag that is worn in exactly the same way as a shirt or jacket, and it’s so comfortable to wear with its long strap that you almost forget it’s there,” Chiuri added of the Saddle Bag’s enduring practicality. “The Saddle Bag is also practical because it allows you to carry everything you need with you. It’s for this reason that I wanted it larger and more robust, but also very colourful, embroidered or with beaded fringe, because, like a chameleon, it adapts to all situations.”

The new Saddle Bag is only available to purchase from select Dior boutiques.

Sienna Miller has toned down her signature look and now prefers wearing “grown-up” outfits.

The Live by Night actress first rose to prominence in the 2000s when she appeared in films such as Factory Girl and Layer Cake, and simultaneously became known for her bohemian-style ensembles that typically consisted of peasant tops, floaty dresses and wide belts.

Sienna may have once been a real style influencer, but she has now admitted that she’s no longer interested in setting trends and now seeks out much more refined pieces for her wardrobe.

“I never used to mind drawing attention to myself through what I wore,” she told Harper’s Bazaar of her fashionista phase. “I didn’t mind being quite brave and colourful and I don’t want that anymore. The mini-skirts and stuff… It was great and I was in my twenties, but I’ve grown up a little bit. I love classic fashion; for now, I’m in a toned down, mellow state.”

Sienna went on to explain that her off-duty look typically consists of jeans, a T-shirt and a sweater. And she would wear her gym gear on the red carpet if she could.

“Maybe I associate it with the anxiety of the experience you’re about to have in that gown,” the 36-year-old shared of the nerves she gets when choosing dresses to wear to Hollywood events.

Meanwhile, the blonde beauty also explained that she admires people who can put together a “full look” each day and joked that she is looking forward to reaching an age where she doesn’t feel the need to conform to fashion rules in the slightest.

“When I get to 50 or 60, I’m going to be that mad lady with mad glasses and seven hats, and go full De Beauvoir Beale,” she laughed, referring to late American style icon Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale. “It’s all lurking in my future.”
