Sienna Miller is 41 and pregnant. Her instinct is to joke about it.

“I don’t think you can legislate on matters of the heart. I certainly have never been able to,” Miller said.

At 41, Miller may be pregnant, preparing for a new chapter and embracing another career peak. But she’s also not running from her past, which, as documented by every tabloid, involved heartbreak, pain and being relentlessly pursued by men with cameras.

Her current attitude is best summed up by her reflection on a 2007 interview with The Guardian, which became infamous at the time for a series of not-exactly-PR-friendly quotes, like how magic mushrooms would be her ‘drug of choice’ and the many rude (but funny) names she and her friends had brainstormed for American cities. Massivetwoshits is Massachusetts, for example.

At the time of publication, all it did was fan the already brutal media circus surrounding her, and she was so upset by it she called up the writer, Simon Hattenstone.

“He said, ‘I’m sorry that you’re upset, but I think when you are older, you are going to look back on this and love this article. It’ll be a real capsule of who you were at that moment.’ And actually I did many years later go back and read it, and I was like, She’s great.”
