Art imitates life: In the new Netflix series “Anatomy of a Scandal,” currently leading the streaming Swiss show, Sienna Miller (40) plays the wife of a British minister (Robert Friend), who is said to have been betrayed by sexual abuse and affairs. In her role as the cuckold’s wife, Miller makes an impressive comeback and convinces with her painful performance – and no wonder, because she knows what she’s playing herself with.
In the mid-nineties, Sienna Miller became the victim of one of the most famous cheating scandals in Hollywood: in 2004 it was revealed that her fiancé at the time, movie star Jude Law (49), cheated on her with the nanny. A media mud battle ensued. Miller said in a 2020 interview that the drama of cheating on the public was the “worst moment of her life.”
The feelings were the same.
Understandably, filming the current Netflix mini-series also brought back memories of the British-American actress’ private life, as she confirmed in an interview with “Elle”. “I was aware of what happened in the series because I experienced some of the things my role went through. The feelings were the same. But the way my character handles the situation is different.” “It made me curious in a roundabout way as to what it would be like if I had approached everything differently back then,” the Alfie star says.
Seeing this personal experience from a different perspective and reliving it into her character also helped her finish her own story, Miller continues: “I was able to renew myself somehow. I don’t know exactly what the psychology behind it is. But it allowed me to replace my memory with another one.”
Despite her “very painful moments,” Sienna Miller remained romantic and “didn’t stop loving love,” she says. Since February, her heart belongs to American actor and actress Ollie Green (25).
