Sienna Miller, Factory Girl



As she enticed Daniel Craig's mobster into bed in her very first film, Layer Cake, Sienna Miller's golden sexuality and irrepressible spirit brought comparisons with the great Julie Christie. Now, in Factory Girl, Miller plays another 60s icon, Andy Warhol superstar Edie Sedgwick. As the fashion-forward socialite who drew comparisons with Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, Sedgwick starred in many of Warhol's downtown movies and then their platonic love affair went sour. Banished and adrift, Sedgwick died in 1971 of an accidental overdose. She was 28. For Miller this tour-de-force as a paparazzi-plagued heroine undoubtedly echoes her own life where her on-off-on-and-finally off relationship with philanderer Jude Law has made her a tabloid headliner. Here, just back from Sundance and the previous night's premiere party, she discusses Edie, her acting ambitions and the press.
