Sienna Miller Reveals Hollywood Bad Behaviour
Sienna Miller has said she is "very lucky" to have been given a second chance in Hollywood after she "sabotaged" things the first time around.
The star, 32, said her reputation for bad behaviour away from the film sets had made it difficult for her to get work.
The actress, who recently took a year off after having a daughter with actor Tom Sturridge, said: "It was a weird situation to be in because there was a lot of goodwill for me in Hollywood. I think I'd been lucky in that I'd always been naughty in that town and people had always liked me for it.
"And it was refreshing and it was who I was."
But she added: "I sabotaged things. I burnt a lot of bridges. I had no business sense whatsoever.
"I never read a review or paid any mind to what anyone said. It was all about the experience. And that translated to how I behaved outside work.
"On set, I was first to arrive, last to leave, best friends with the crew, totally professional, no d**king around.
"But when I wasn't at work, I wasn't behaving the way you should. I'm very lucky to have a second chance in that town."
"It was really bad," she told the March issue of Esquire. "What was going on in my private life was not an easy thing to read about. People don't want to see films with people they don't approve of in them."
Miller, whose relationship with Jude Law has been in the headlines this week, said she deliberately stepped away from the limelight.
"I felt like I had no control over any aspect of my life, professionally or personally," she said.
She said of her overnight fame: "I was really naive, I think. I was a young 21. Not green as grass - I was by no means an innocent - but I had faith in the goodness of everyone. I was very open. And that led me into all sorts of situations that backfired."
The actress said that she was "great friends" with Law and said of her fiance Sturridge: "He's the perfect balance to my lunacy, which makes him sound really boring but he's not, at all."
Miller gave the interview before Law gave evidence in the phone hacking trial.
He was asked about a News Of The World story about Miller, his then-girlfriend, having an affair with the James Bond actor Daniel Craig.
