Sienna Miller: Snapshot

Name
Sienna Miller
Date of Birth
December 28, 1981
Birth Place
New York, N.Y.
Sienna Miller knows her love life overshadowed her acting career, referring, of course, to the headlines generated in 2005 when she left fiancé Jude Law after he confessed to having an affair with his children's nanny.

Before "Nannygate," Miller gained a reputation as a stunning scene-stealer from her short, yet memorable roles in the gritty crime film Layer Cake and 2004's Alfie. The latter marked the beginning of her tumultuous, on-and-off again relationship with much-bigger star Jude Law.

Miller eventually emerged from the shadow of their romance with an edgy film role in Factory Girl, parlayed her fashion influence into her own line, Twenty8Twelve, and moved on with actor Tom Sturridge, with whom she welcomed her first child.
