Rumor control: That 'Factory Girl' love scene

Factory_lHow come I feel dirty every time I have to write about Sienna Miller? I mean, she seems like a nice lady and a fine actress (she was particularly wonderful in 2005’s underrated Casanova). But with Miller (pictured, in Factory Girl), it just always seems to be about sex, sex, sex. This even though, as she made clear to EW last fall, she’s ready to be taken seriously as more than just Jude Law’s on-again-off-again fiancĂ©e. And you have to respect that.

Which makes today’s rumor, that Miller and her Factory Girl costar Hayden Christensen weren’t pretending when they shot a sex scene for their film, particularly unsettling—especially because it reeks of having been planted by a hyperactive PR machine trying to drum up interest in the Edie Sedgwick biopic, which opens in very limited release on Friday. My goodness, what a way to improve an actress’ reputation! As it turns out, Hayden probably didn’t hold Sienna like he did by the lake on Naboo, says TMZ, whose report quotes Sienna’s rep as denying the rumor.

But I wonder: Would this salacious tidbit really encourage you to see Factory Girl, or would it have the opposite effect? I mean, I suppose when I heard that Mickey Rourke and Carre Otis may have actually gotten it on in Wild Orchid, I got interested in that film. But, good Lord, I was 14 at the time. The jury may be out on me, but everybody else has grown up since then, right? Right?

    I think it was Vogue who called her the ex-lover of a second rate actor and a roadkill. SO TRUE !!!!!

  • brandonk

    How about “Does not affect my decision”? Cuz I don’t plan on seeing that movie regardless.

    i wish sienna would erase the name of jude law from her interviews. they are finished…kaput…why does she still use him as a hook. in the current life magazine she says she lost her innocence when nannygate occurred. she’s had so many boy friends before jude even at a very young age. she didn’t have any innocence to lose. she’s cute and fun but this is the wrong approach for longevity in a career. if she wants to be jessica simpson or paris hilton she’s headed in that direction. i find her distasteful and i thank god that jude law finally got her number.

    Is Daniel Radcliffe in Factory Girl? And if he is, does he show it all? and if he does, how will that affect his Harry Potter image? and if it affects his Harry Potter image positively, will he start pulling it out in those movies?

  • jim

    Maybe the PR is for Hayden’s benefit. The rumors about him being gay are out there.

    If Sienna Miller tried any harder to get attention for her career, she’d be attending premieres in the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile.
    I was sick of her before I even saw her in anything, and then I saw her in a couple of movies and confirmed my suspicions that she’s a so-so actress who needs to stop dressing like a Bobo (Bohemian hobo) and inexplicably getting starring roles.
    Sienna, you are such an attention whore that you DON’T EVEN WEAR PANTS TO PREMIERES. Yeah, no one will think of you as a serious actress when your idea of “fashion forward” attire is Leggs control top pantyhose. Stop. It. Now.

    Rebecca, Jim and BrandonK pretty much summed it up. I don’t think ANYTHING can make me care about Sienna Miller. And if Christiansen is gay and trying to hide it, I wouldn’t put it past Ms ‘Topless in Vanity Fair’ to go along with it just for publicity. How boring. I bet next she’ll make a racial comment about Asians publicly and then apologize and meet with Asian rights groups. Yuck!!

    In this day and age, why would you go see a movie because of a sex scene, “real” or not? Just wait, and it’ll be on the Internet anyway.

  • ns

    I agree: publicity stunt. Another film where one of the stars implied that actual sex took place was Tattoo, which I think came out around 1980. The stars in question were Bruce Dern and Maud Adams, and not surprisingly it was Dern who claimed he hit paydirt.

    I’ve always wondered what it takes for emotional actors and actresses to do an explicit love scene together. This news is tittilating enough to get guys hung up on Sienna Miller to watch this arty movie about Andy Warhol. Most actors and actresses fake penetration with the infamous “sock” over the male’s private. But there would be definitely times of “slippage” because it will become erect. The last love scene that I saw that I was sure was not faked, was Halle Berry’s love scene in Monster’s Ball. There’s a moment in Billy Bob Thornton’s face and with the images that you know that it wasn’t fake anymore and that it was real. It made the scene even more compelling, and it actually furtively won Halle Berry the Oscar for “putting it all out there.” Stating that it was real directly, makes it scandalous though, and robs it of its dramatic weight.

    Yes, WE’ve all grown up, but there are still a lot of 14-year old boys around…

  • Diane

    Art film released in February generally = bad movie (good ones are released in the fall for award season) Therefore total planted story. And sad.

  • Annie

    Who cares? Haven’t seen one Sienna Miller movie and don’t plan to.
    I wouldn’t know she exists except for her connection to Jude Law.

    This whole crapfest is infuriating, because it has ruined my anticipation for and desire to see this movie. I’m a big fan of the whole Warhol factory ethos, and the prospect of the great Guy Pearce playing Warhol has me salivating. But Sienna Miller’s distasteful and annoying bid for stardom at any price (other than actually working for it) has turned me off from the film completely. I was willing to think she might have potential after I saw Casanova (loads of fun, but inferior to the TV version with the delightful combination of Peter O’Toole and David Tennant last year) and Layer Cake, but now I’m starting to think that Heath Ledger and Daniel Craig were just so good I gave her too much credit. I guess I’ll go turn up “Edie” by The Cult, sulk and curse Sienna Miller, and wait for the DVD.

    I have no desire to Sienna in any movie. I don’t know if anyone recalls, but she made all those slurs about the city of Pittsbughr a few months back. She said she couldnt wait to get back to NYC. I’m from Pittsburgh, and for her to insult the city welcomed her is just a crappy move. Go back to New York. Keep being a media whore. No one’s paying attention to you anyway.
