Sienna Miller has revealed she was told to fuck off by an “extremely powerful” Broadway producer after asking her male co-star for equal pay.
The model and actress, 40, explained how she was offered less than half what he was making per week for the play.
Sienna didn’t mention which Broadway producer it was, but did act in Cabaret in 2015 and After Miss Julie in 2009.

She told British Vogue: “I said to the producer, who was extremely influential, it’s not about money – it’s about fairness and respect, and I thought they were going to come back and say, ‘Of course, of course.’
“But they didn’t. They just said, ‘Well fuck off then’.”
It was a pivotal moment for her as she added, “I realized I had every right to be equally subsidized for the work I would have done.”
With that attitude, Sienna demanded greater compensation in the 2019 action film 21 Bridges.

The late actor Chadwick Boseman reallocated part of his salary to help cover her fees for the film, which Boseman also produced.
She said to him, “What you did was extraordinary and meant something to the world.” He approached me when we were packing and said, “You paid what you deserved.”
Elsewhere in the wide-ranging interview, Sienna opened up about her past love life, saying she spent years investing in a relationship with someone who was “a bucket with a hole in one person.”
The star revealed that she thought she would be married and have children by her 30s, but the relationships she was in during those years didn’t work out.

Sienna said: “I had invested what felt like important years in what was just a bucket with a hole in it by one person. I wasted time And I felt like time really is my currency.”
She was quick to point out that she wasn’t referring to Tom Sturridge, who she dated from 2011 to 2015 and with whom she shares ten-year-old daughter Marlowe.
Prior to her relationship with Tom, Sienna was engaged to fellow actor Jude Law in 2004 after he popped the question on Christmas Day.
He apologized to her in July of the following year for an affair with his children’s nanny.
Couples: Elsewhere in the wide-ranging interview, Sienna opened up about her past love life (Sienna is currently in a relationship with model Oli Green, 15 years her junior – pictured in 2022).
Sienna also had a highly publicized affair with actor Bathlazar Getty in 2008.
Reflecting on how difficult her 30s were, she added, “There was a lot of anxiety. Relationships hadn’t worked out – I envisioned being married, having three kids and being an amazing mom. I love being a mom. I can do that best.”
Now dating model Oli Green, 15 years her junior, Sienna says: “There’s a misogyny that’s ingrained in men my age and older that I don’t see [the] generation below”.
Sienna’s ex Tom is now in a relationship with presenter and fashion designer Alexa Chung, with the actress saying she’s “really happy” for the couple.

She said: “It’s really beautiful. Marlowe comes home with Alexa’s sweaters, which I steal. I have one upstairs.’
On her unconventional co-parenting, including lockdown time in upstate New York with respective partners at the time, Sienna said, “I had my boyfriend at the time. And Tom’s then girlfriend came and… it was definitely eccentric.
“I can’t go into the details but the wheels came off and everything went horribly wrong.” […] ‘It will make a fantastic game.’
Sienna said she was “excited” to be turning 40, adding, “As a young woman I was so trivialized and seemed so insignificant, but there’s very little anyone can say about a 40-year-old woman. And I don’t give a**k either.
“It was such a headline in my life – what people thought of me. It was so loud I believed it. Now I’ve gotten to a point where it’s absolutely none of your business.”
