Of all the myriad, funnily named crayons in the jumbo-sized Crayola
boxes that graced the grubby, communal tables of musty, elementary
after-school programs, I remember the hue for “Burnt Sienna” with
unerring clarity. A ruddy mixture of orange, brown and red, it recalled
the type of thick clay found around Eastern seaboard construction sites — the sort that would streak and stain pavement with the rain, leaving
thick tire marks of accompaniment for blocks in either direction. And
if you accidentally stepped in it and didn’t soon find a wet patch of
grass to work it off your shoe, well, it was bound to travel with you
and then leave its mark on your parents’ or friends’ carpet.
Factory Girl actress Sienna Miller leaves a distinctive mark. A rising starlet who
first made her name — or, more accurately, had it foisted upon her — as
Jude Law’s girlfriend, initially onscreen in Alfie,
then offscreen and throughout the tabloids, Miller is now making her
way in Hollywood sans romantic entanglements, thank you very much. Or
trying to, at least. For the full feature interview, from FilmStew, click here.
