little interview thing i found

Sienna Miller’s Next Project: “The Edie Sedgwick movie. ‘Factory Girl’ it’s called, playing Edie Sedgwick. It’s about Edie Sedgwick who was Andie Warhol’s muse in the ‘60s and just kind of focusing on that quite pivotal moment in time. She was very destructive, a big drug addict and died at 28. It’s pretty sad.”

Sienna Miller Explains the Appeal of Playing Edie Sedgwick: “I just think anybody who is that self-destructive is intriguing. She had a real light. She was vibrant and fascinating and kind of started a big movement in the ‘60s, and burned out because she was misguided and abused. [She] just had an interesting life. I just think she’s a pretty tortured soul, but that’s quite fascinating in a sick kind of way.”

The Challenges of Tackling That Particular Role: “Playing somebody who really existed is challenging. You want to do it justice because I think you realize that you’re the one that’s carrying the mantle on. Accent, her voice, vocal physicalities, the way she smoked, the way she talked. Being able to be destructive but also have an audience sympathize with you. Not being seen as some drug addict, but actually to make people feel that she’s a drug addict as a result of a very tortured life - a lot. I’m terrified.”

Sienna Miller on Researching Sedgwick: “It’s fascinating. …Even if this film is terrible, the experience of researching it has been so fascinating. I was with her husband, Michael Post, in Santa Barbara last week and have been hanging out with the people from The Factory that are still alive. Brigid Berlin and Danny Fields and all these incredible, real ‘60s characters. There’s an awful lot of perks. I’m going to Pittsburgh this weekend to the Warhol museum. Guy Pearce is playing Andy Warhol and he’s fantastic. I think he’s going to do a great job. I’m very excited.”
