Miller blames ‘vendetta’ for losing Robin Hood role
LONDON: Sienna Miller has said that there is a vendetta against her after the actress lost out on playing Maid Marian in Ridley Scott’s epic Robin Hood.
The Hippie Hippie Shake star, who was due to share the frame with Russell Crowe in the forthcoming drama, said that script alterations cost her the role.
“The script kept changing and evolving to the point where I was no longer appropriate for it,” the Daily Express quoted her as having told Total Film magazine.
The 27-year-old, however, added that she had no hard feelings against 40-year-old Cate Blanchett, who had stepped into her shoes.
She said: “Cate’s 10 years older than me, which is more suitable for the script. If they’d recast with Keira Knightley I’d have been heartbroken but they’ve gone for something different - and better in my opinion. If I had the choice between Cate Blanchett and me I’d go for Cate Blanchett.”
Miller further said that she was not the only one who was dropped out of the project, and that it was the media’s doing that such a hue and cry was created about her loss of role.
She added: “There were several people supposed to be doing the film who no longer are but because it’s me it becomes this enormous drama - I think it’s a Sienna thing! There’s just a vendetta against… I don’t know.”
