‘He called me in to his office – he had just bought [2006’s Factory Girl]. He sat me down, stood up, and said, “You’re not partying any more.” It felt like a paternal lecture,’ she remembers. ‘He slammed the door and I burst into tears, then he came back in and went, “It’s because I’m f*cking proud of you.” And slammed it again.’
At the time, she thought this kind of patronising takedown was a burden that women were expected to bear; suffice to say, she’s thrilled about the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements. ‘Women have been undermined and undervalued,’ she says. ‘That this is happening is essential.’
Miller has expressed her solidarity with the victims of Weinstein, but proclaims she was never harrassed by him.
“But I was very fortunate that no one ever propositioned me for work with sex – and if they had, I would probably have slapped them.” She stops. “But it’s not that easy,” she says. “I know that you couldn’t say no to Harvey if he asked you to do something. For me, it would be, like, an extra week of press, so I imagine in a situation where it’s sexual, it would also be hard to say no, and that’s crushing.”
However, 'Factory Girl' Director George Hickenlooper reveals a different side of Weinstein that involved a sex scene between Miller and Hayden Christensen:
In 2010, George Hickenlooper (#FactoryGirl) claimed Harvey Weinstein almost fired him if he didn't film a better sex scene between Sienna Miller & Hayden Christensen (More info: https://t.co/sOJBb6M8Xz) pic.twitter.com/gWpVDr95FG— L☺☺PY (@GuadaL00py) December 14, 2017
