Sienna Miller

  1. Anne Hathaway, Brokeback Mountain, 2004.      Sienna lost out to what the casting director introduced as a Broadway actress, to avoidAnne’sprevious work being held against her. Not that Ang Lee hadever seen The Princess Diaries, 2001, and Ella Enchanted, 2004.
  2. Rachel Weisz, The Constant Gardener, 2004.     “They made the right decision about that one.” said Sienna recalling how she turned up for her audition with “pond green”hair. She’d dyed her blonde tresses brown - but going “all organic and hippy, usinghenna instead of normal hair colour.” Rachel won a Best Actress Oscar.
  3. Lena Headey, 300, 2006.      Both Sienna and Italian Silvia Colloca lost the heroic Spartan queen Gorgo ("only Spartan women give birth to real men") to the Bermuda-born Brit.
  4. Gemma Arterton,St Trinian’s, 2007.     Sienna lost Kelly Jones to Gemma, not yet the toast of the nation (and 007 geeks) in Quantum of Solace, 2008.After that, everyone lost roles to Gemma.
  5.  Mischa Barton, Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain, 2008.      The former star of The OC took overSienna’s role and joined ex-West Winger Martin Sheen inthe tragedy about India’s worst chemical disaster.
  6. Cate Blanchett, Robin Hood, 2009.      Russell Crowe allegedly threw his (at the time, not inconsiderable) weight around UK director Ridley Scott’s much delayed epic about Nottingham -the original title - including pushingSiennaout of the flick. “Wasn't my call, actually,” said Crowe. “It's more that I’m too old and fat! The way we changed the character, we needed somebody who was going to be resilient. And Cate is superb in this film... excellent to work with, a great partner in crime.”   Earlier Sherwood candidates had included Emily Blunt, Zooey Deschanel, Scarlett Johansson, Anglina Jolie, Natalie Portman and Saoirse Ronan.
  7.  Rachel McAdams, Sherlock Holmes, 2009.    All set to be Irene Adler,the solewoman to conquer - and break -Holmes’ heart... until her ex-lover, Jude Law, signed on as Dr Watson. Flash! That was Miller fleeing in t’other direction.
  8. Kate Hudson, Nine, 2009.
  9. Kate Hudson, The Killer Inside Me, 2009.       As directors changed from Andrew Dominik and Marc Rocco to Michael Winterbottom, so did the favourites to play Amy Stanton,girlfriend of the mild-spoken, intellectual psychopath. From Sienna to Katherine Heigl, Natalie Portman, Michelle Williamsand, finally, Kate.
  10. Sandra Bullock, Gravity, 2012.      Once Angelina Jolie passed (twice), they all wanted the 3D sf special written by Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron and his son, Jonas - Sienna, Abbie Cornish, Marion Cotillard, Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johannsson, Blake Lively, Casey Mulligan, Natalie Portman, Naomi Watts, Olivia Wilde…Because the female astronaut is aloneon-screen for most of the movie. (Sorry about that, George Clooney).
  11. Katharine Waterston, The Current War, 2016.       Witty title about Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse creating an electricity system for the USA. Miller was in the loop before Mrs W went to Watertston - the London-born daughter of the star of The Killing Fields and Law & Order, Sam Waterston.
