Tube: Vauxhall WHEN someone with a reputation for loathing the press announces: I can now do martial arts, I can fire weapons and Im a good little scrapper, it could be cause for concern. Fortunately the fighting talk comes from Sienna Miller, who is so slight even a wimp like me could snap her over his knee, and she toughened up to play kick-a** Baroness in the GI Joe m o v i e, n o t s o sh e c a n d e c k journalists. Still, the battle lines are drawn. She wont talk about her personal life, but considering her chequered history with Jude Law, Balthazar Getty and Rhys Ifans there wouldnt be time anyway. Nor does she comment on Hippie Hippie Shake, the Sixties drama shes making, on which production has been halted after the director walked out. Having now met her, I cant imagine the walk-out had anything to do with Miller. Id been expecting a cold fish, but shes lovely -- flirty and funny with an infec- tious laugh and a thing for rubber. Well, the rubber catsuits she gets to wear in GI Joe at least. Power-dressing for her first full-on action role was a lot of fun and it was great to do something that was pure entertainment. Its nice to be able to hop between this kind of genre and the independent art house stuff Ive done before, adds the 27-year-old beauty. I had to get fit for the first time in my life. I did six weeks of fight training and initially firing guns was quite a big deal. I found it intimidat- ing, not coming from a gun culture, and I couldnt do it without squinting. Shes game for a sequel, but her next task is prepping for her Broadway debut this winter opposite Jonny Lee Miller in Patrick Marbers After Miss Julie. Its a return home for Miller, who was born in New York and moved to London with her family when she was a year old. Is she contemplating a permanent move to the States? I cant leave London, I love it too much. Its great that I get to travel a lot with work, she smiles. But youre not getting rid of me.
