Miller: Family comes before acting

Sienna Miller says only a spectacular acting role will entice her away from being a mum
Sienna Miller says only a spectacular acting role will entice her away from being a mum

Sienna Miller has said she is happy being a mother and will only return to acting for "something spectacular".

The actress, who had a daughter last year with actor Tom Sturridge, said she had cut down on work and only agreed to appear in her latest film, Foxcatcher, because it "was too good not to do".

She told the Evening Standard: "I felt, having done that, that unless it's of that calibre, it's not worth not being with my baby... Unless it's something spectacular, I really want to be a mother."

Her comments come after Johnny Depp said he could retire from movie-making soon and described the life of an actor as "a kind of insane option for a human being".

The 50-year-old star said he would not be "dropping out any second" but the moment was "probably not too far away".

He told BBC Breakfast: "At a certain point you start thinking and you know when you add up the amount of dialogue you say per year, for example, and you realise that you've said written words more than you've actually had a chance to say your own words, you start thinking about that as a kind of insane option for a human being.

"So are there quieter things that I wouldn't mind doing? Yeah, I would not mind that."

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
