Sienna Miller on her early days in showbiz: 'I sabotaged things'
The messy 2005 love triangle between Sienna Miller, Daniel Craig and Jude Law was revisited in court this week as a News of the World reporter-turned hacker admitted he'd listened in on an "I love you" voicemail Miller left for Craig while she was engaged to Law. Law also took the stand, divulging how the tabloid's reports of Miller and Craig's affair had affected his relationships with both of them.
On the heels of all of this, Miller -- now a 32-year-old mom who's both engaged and back to work after taking a respite from the movie world -- appears (topless) on the cover of Esquire UK's March issue.
"I was really naïve, I think. I was a young 21. Not green as grass – I was by no means an innocent – but I had faith in the goodness of everyone. I was very open. And that lead me into all sorts of situations that backfired," she says (as excerpted in People). "I had no business sense whatsoever. I never read a review or paid any mind to what anyone said. It was all about the experience. And that translated to how I behaved outside work. I sabotaged things. I burnt a lot of bridges."
She continues: "What was 'going' on in my private life was not an easy thing to read about. People don't want to see films with people they don't approve of in them.” "I felt like I had no control over any aspect of my life, professionally or personally. So I deliberately disappeared. I was sick of myself, to be honest, or sick of that perception of me. It all felt so f–––ing dirty."
Miller adds that she eventually reconciled with Law, who had an affair of his own with the couple's nanny. Today, she says she's in a much better place. "I feel really settled. I have a wonderful life. I'm up every morning with a little baby. That gives you incredible perspective."
