Sienna Miller echoes Scarlett Johansson: "everybody should be able to play everybody"

“I’m about to get myself into trouble, I know,” says English actress, Sienna Miller



When asked of the hot topic about what roles actors should be able to play, Sienna Miller goes off.

“I feel everybody should be able to play everybody,” Miller says. “It seems absurd to me to start to legislate on creativity. That’s not trying to be insensitive – of course, there are people who have a deeper understanding of experiences, and they should definitely be considered...  I certainly don’t want to play myself for the rest of my life.

'I’m all for a lot of the changes that are happening – and I’m benefiting from them as a woman but it does feel complicated when you start to legislate on what roles you can and cannot play.

'I think it’s English to not be as careful. It feels like liberal is becoming almost fascistic in its controlling of what can and cannot be done. It feels dangerous to me."

Miller portrays American women in two films out this year, Showtime's The Loudest Voice and American Woman, for which she's been getting rave reviews about. “If you started to restrict me to playing English women who went to boarding school at eight, you know, I would give up," Miller says.
