The British actress, who has taken legal action against Rupert Murdoch’s News Group, says standing up for what’s right takes precedence over her career. Sienna Miller was one of the first celebrities to accuse Murdoch journalists of hacking into her phone. Comedian Steve Coogan and other celebrities are suing the Murdoch press for allegedly hacking into voicemail messages left on their cellphones. When I asked her if she was afraid suing Murdoch’s UK newspaper News of the World could mean she would never work for 20th Century Fox again, Miller said: “I’m not really too concerned about never working for Fox because it’s about standing up for myself in a way that’s more important than anything. If that’s the case, then that’s the case. It means more to me to make a stand against that than it does anything else in my life.” Miller is starring in Terence Rattigan’s Flare Path, directed by Trevor Nunn, at the moment on the London stage. She starts filming Just Like a Woman with Oscar-nominated director Rachid Bouchareb in New Mexico in June. Miller said: “I can still do a play with Trevor and do a film with Rachid and that’s more interesting than anything.”
