Not long ago, Sienna Miller graced the covers of many fashion and celeb mags and was as celebrated a style icon as fellow Brit Kate Moss. These days, she isn't exactly at the top of every casting director's list when they're trying to fill the many roles out there that call for blonde bombshells. Obviously, her good looks aren't hindering her chances of scoring more acting gigs, and at 32, she isn't exactly knocking on death's door. So what gives?
Well, if you ask Sienna, she ruined her own chances at becoming a bigger deal in Hollywood because of her "immoral" behavior. In an interview with Esquire U.K., she basically blamed her bad career on her former home-wrecking ways and insistence on frolicking with various hot actors. But ... but ... but ... this is Hollywood we're talking about! Why don't I feel morally offended by what I'm learning about her? Could there be another reason why Sienna isn't as big a star as, say, the always moral Angelina Jolie?
Admittedly, I'm not a huge fan of Sienna, but she doesn't exactly boast a big body of work from which I can base an opinion. The Alfie star seemed like she was headed for good things after starring in films like Layer Cake and Factory Girl, but she says her private affairs with famous men gave her a bad rep in the biz.
So whom did she sleep with? She admits sharing steamy times with James Bond actor Daniel Craig, Rhys Ifans, and Balthazar Getty -- who was married with four children at the time. Um, oops? And, of course, we all know about her on-off relationship with Jude Law, who famously cheated on her with a nanny.
So, she's had some love affairs. Big whoop. In Sienna's eyes, these were enough to turn her into a pariah in Hollywood, but since when has the purity of actresses affected their ability to get work? And we won't even get into how the dalliances of actors like, cough, Leonardo DiCaprio have absolutely zero impact on their careers.
Off the top of my head, I can think of several high-profile female celebs whose "immoral" behavior hasn't kept them from working:
Aforementioned Angelina Jolie -- Allegedly carried on with Brad Pitt while he was still married to Jen Aniston.
Kristen Stewart -- Had an affair with Rupert Sanders while he was married to Liberty Ross.
Amber Heard -- Has filmed six movies since meeting current fiance Johnny Depp on the set of The Rum Diary and reportedly being a big reason why he split from longtime love Vanessa Paradis.
Elizabeth Taylor -- Despite being married eight times to seven men, the classic actress had a career most would die for.
Jennifer Lopez -- There are rumors that the star cheated on ex Cris Judd with Ben Affleck and on Casper Smart with Marc Anthony. None of these revelations affected her star power.
It's possible Sienna will make a comeback and knock all of our socks off, but the jury is still out on that one. In case you need to refresh your memory on who she is, here's Sienna in a recent Hugo Boss commercial:
What do you think? Is Sienna making excuses for why she hasn't been cast in more movies or do you think her relationships ruined her reputation?
