Sienna Takes Pity on City (Actress' View of Life in Pittsburgh)
The New York Post ^ | October 5, 2006 | Paula Froelich & Bill Hoffman

Posted on 10/07/2006 8:37:59 AM PDT by mcg2000

October 7, 2006 -- SIENNA Miller, now in Pennsylvania shooting "The Mysteries of Pittsburgh," is trying to backtrack from her nasty comments about the former steel town, which she referred to in Rolling Stone as "S - - - sburgh." "Can you believe this is my life?" she moaned to the mag. "Will you pity me when you're back in your funky New York apartment and I'm still in Pittsburgh? I need to get more glamorous films."

In a statement sent out yesterday via her rep, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, Miller said, "I want to apologize for my comments, which seem to have been misconstrued and taken out of context. I was referring to the fact that we are shooting almost all-night shoots on this film and none of us have had an opportunity to fully explore the city. What I have seen of it is beautiful . . . I sincerely apologize and hope people realize that conversations can be easily manipulated in print."

Uhh-huh. Yeah, right. All the folks I've known from that end of Pennsylvania had pretty good BS detectors, and I don't think this backtrack is going to fix things.

Semi-Famous Actress Dumps on the 'Burgh

Excerpts from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette article...

"Ms. Eliscu interviewed Miss Miller, the girlfriend of "Alfie" co-star Jude Law, in Pittsburgh in mid-September.

"When I was writing that," said Ms. Eliscu, "I thought, 'Ooh, people in Pittsburgh are not gonna be stoked about that.'"

Her routine is living out of the hotel room and going to the hotel bar to smoke and have drinks," said Ms. Eliscu. "I went to her room. It was in disarray, stuff on the floor -- there's only so much you can do to clean up a hotel room when you're there for a long time."

"Ms. Eliscu writes that Miss Miller dropped the derogatory remark over a "goblet of cheap pinot grigio."

Give me a break, she's right. Pittsburgh is a s**thole. Many public toilets have a more pleasant stench.

Oh, boo hoo! For this you're getting paid HOW much????

Maybe you'd prefer to work the graveyard shift at a rendering plant instead.

More brilliance from Ms. Miller as reported by The Telegraph:


Monogamy is overrated, says Sienna (and Jude agrees)


By Robert Colvile
(Filed: 07/10/2006)

Sienna Miller, the actress who was engaged to film star Jude Law until it came out that he had slept with his children's nanny, has described monogamy as "overrated".

"Monogamy is a weird thing for me. It's an overrated virtue, because, let's face it, we're f***ing animals," she told Rolling Stone magazine.

Miss Miller, 24, was less forgiving in September 2005, when, in a thinly-veiled reference to Law's affair, she said of the Casanova lifestyle: "I don't think it's normal, I don't think it's admirable, I don't think it's desirable."

The pair met when Miller auditioned for the remake of Alfie in 2003, and Law proposed on Christmas Day 2004, presenting her with a £20,000 engagement ring.

Since their split in July 2005, Law and Miller have resumed their relationship – but it has been an on-again, off-again romance.

Newspaper reports in recent years have done much to suggest that monogamy is passé among the "Primrose Hill set", a group of celebrities living in that area of north London.

As well as Law's entanglement with the nanny, Daisy Wright, it was alleged that he and his ex-wife Sadie Frost held wife-swapping sessions and there were allegations that they had a threesome with the model Kate Moss.

If it all gets too confusing, at least we can be sure that Miss Miller approves of one traditional institution: the family.

"Jude has three children and I have never tried to be their mum or anything but I've had the benefit of living with them and loving them without being the parent," she told the magazine.

"But I love the idea of being a working mum and having my kid on the set."


Actors - is there anything they don't know?!?!

Miller? What a goof.

Reminds me of when Andre Aggasi ripped Fort Worth, TX many years ago when he was in town to play in the Davis Cup (or was it the WTC?)... anyway the DMN article mentioned that Aggasi said when he looked out his hotel window at the Fort Worth sky line he thought something along the line of "nothingness" (he's from Las Vegas)...

Las Vegas does not equal Fort Worth Andre... some prefer it that way.

Just another hollywood hussy trying to sound edgy for the enlightened readers of "Rolling Stone" magazine. Can you say poser? I knew you could. In five years we'll read about her bemoaning the fact that there are 'fewer and fewer' roles for older actresses.

Oh really now..
I have lived here all my life. It isnt a Great city, but it is better than most.
Sorry if we dont live up to the upscale ways of your cities like NYC or Hollywood or LA..but at least it is cheap to live here and, since it is PA, a Carry permit is easy to get {for now, anyways}
PS..we have new public toilets...and they are self cleaning..so there

Ahem, I was born in Pittsburgh. True, it was somewhat crappy back then, but it's improved immensely.

Sienna, I thought you were great on "Keen Eddie," but it turns out you're just like most Hollywood idiots. Now THAT's a pity.

Aside from the fact that the city is infested with Democrats, and the fact that it takes 20 years to get a halfway decent highway built, there isn't anywhere else I would rather live.
