Sienna Miller revealed she could not wait to get back to work as she made her big screen return in Foxcatcher.
The 32-year-old, who plays wrestler’s wife Nancy Schultz in Bennett Miller’s true-life tale, outshone her co-stars Steve Carell and Vanessa Redgrave as the movie premiered at the BFI London Film Festival, shimmering in a metallic striped gown at the American Express gala in Leicester Square.
She said the role, the first of five films she has shot since becoming a mum to two-year-old daughter Marlowe, came at the right time.
Sienna’s forthcoming movies, all scheduled to be released in 2015, include the Clint Eastwood-directed American Sniper, Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise and an as-yet-untitled John Wells project.
“I’m really looking forward to it all. I really wanted to work hard. I didn’t work for a year after my daughter was born, and I really wanted to knuckle down this year and get a lot under my belt,” she said.
“She started nursery about a month ago. I wanted to get to a point where I could be a bit more selective. So hopefully now that I’ve put in all this work this year, I’ll be able to have a bit of an easier time the year after.”
Sienna is engaged to Marlowe’s dad, actor Tom Sturridge, and said the couple share parenting duties.
“We take turns. It’s difficult but she’s small enough that she can come with me everywhere so it’s in a way, a great profession,” she continued.
