Speaking to Miller Vogue, the actress stated that she was once told to “f–k off” by an “extremely powerful” broadway executive during her early days of play in New York City.

“I said to the producer, who was extremely powerful, it’s not about money — it’s about fairness and respect, thinking they’d come back and say, ‘Of course, of course.’ But they didn’t, they just said, ‘Well f–k off then.’”

Sienna Miller also stated that she felt extremely embarrassed following the incident and that she had to ask the executive for more money but the unfairness had indeed taken place with the actress. She later described this incident as one of the “pivotal moments” in her life as she realized that she had every right to be equally subsidized for the work that she would have done.

Sienna Miller and Chadwick Boseman shared the screen together when 21 Bridges was released in 2019. Following the death of the Black Panther actor, Miller conveyed her deepest sympathies and revealed that Chadwick Boseman had helped her during the disparity pay in 21 Bridges. 

Chadwick Boseman took a pay cut from his salary so that Sienna Miller might get her pay equivalent to the actor. The Lost City of Z actress described the move as “extraordinary” and continued,

“That kind of thing just doesn’t happen,” she continued. “It’s just unfathomable to imagine another man in that town behaving that graciously or respectfully…There was no showiness, it was, ‘Of course, I’ll get you to that number because that’s what you should be paid.’”

Chadwick Boseman was untimely taken away from this mortal world in the year 2020 when the actor, aged 43, lost the battle to cancer. Sienna Miller was last seen as Sophie Whitehouse in Anatomy of a Scandal (2022) and though the limited series was a huge hit with the audiences, Netflix denied a second season.

Anatomy of a Scandal is available to stream on Netflix.
