Sienna Miller replaced Lindsay Lohan for her part in The Edge of Love, so I should sort of hate her. But I can’t. The Factory Girl star and one-time Jude Law lover dishes on her role as one of two women trying to win the heart of poet Dylan Thomas, while coincidentally becoming a lot, uh, closer with Keira Knightley in the process.
The real-life BFFs play women after Thomas’ heart, and rumors quickly began to swirl about their own on-screen “lesbian love affair.” But, as Miller tells Parade, it was really not the big deal everyone made it out to be:
Yeah. Men. The only ones who’ll be disappointed. But, let’s back up. They take a bath together and it’s not very erotic? How many straight women bathe together? And drunken dips in the hot tub on every season of The Real World do not count. Sure, maybe they weren’t kissing in the tub, but the whole idea of two women, naked, in a steaming tub sounds sort of erotic. So if it’s the men Miller’s concerned about, I don’t think she has anything to worry about.
Discussing her real-life relationship with Knightley, Miller says they’re like any other girlfriends, and it seems like they’d actually make a good couple, you know, if they swung that way.
So cute. And a little gay, right?
The Edge of Love will be released in select cities March 13. Will you see it, even though their lips only “meet very briefly”?
