Watching the “Framing Britney Spears” documentary was triggering for Sienna Miller because it took her back to a time when she was a paparazzi target.
The actress admits she still has anxiety issues when she thinks back to the times she never went anywhere without a gang of paparazzi following her every move, while she was dating Jude Law and after her then-fiance’s affair with his children’s nanny in 2005.
“It’s like a bad memory,” she tells The Daily Telegraph. “But watching the Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse documentaries and remembering what that time was… [When I] see footage of photographers chasing and attacking women in the way they did, I start shaking. It was so intense.”
“It was a strange time to be a young person becoming well known, at the height of whatever feeding-frenzy was going on in tabloid culture.”
And she didn’t appreciate becoming an “It girl” in the tabloids, adding, “It was upsetting at the time. I don’t even know what that means, but it does sound reductive. It doesn’t sound nice.”
On the same topic, the 39-year-old actress stated, ” I find that as soon as I’m put into any sort of box, I just want to kick my way out. Now, I have such a strong sense of who I am and what I’m capable of that it would just roll off my back.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Sienna shared her thought on being a single mother. “Being a mother is the most important thing,” she pointed out. “I’m so madly in love with my child. Your heart is reshaped, and there’s something infinitely more important than anything else – and there’s existential relief in that. I’d love to have more babies, but I’d better get cracking.”
Sienna shares 8-year-old daughter, Marlowe, with ex-fiance Tom Sturridge.
