Being a mom is a messy job, but Sienna Miller clearly loves every bit of it.
Miller, 35, opens up to Allure about being a mom to 4-year-old daughter Marlowe. The “Foxcatcher” actress recalls “an amazing moment the other day where I just heard this ‘Mama!’ from upstairs. I said, ‘I’m coming, I’m coming.’ And as I got to the landing I just smelled, like, puke. And she’d thrown up basically off the top bunk, so the splatters were like: Pow! Like all four walls. She had the norovirus or whatever.”
Believe it or not, things were only going to get messier. “I was like, ‘I’m coming, I’m coming!’ And I skidded… and fell. Whacked my head,” she explains. “Then I get her out of the bunk; she’s crying, covered in sick. I take her to the bathroom, take all her clothes off, and then the dog comes up and starts eating the sick. And I get her in the bath and in my bed, and I’m just, like, literally naked, mopping, and crying at midnight.”
That experience might be off-putting to some parents, but for Miller it is all part of the job. “You know, and that’s parenthood,” she says. “You’re so enriched by it and so fulfilled, but at the same time, I look at these people who just don’t have any responsibility, and it feels like the responsibility is crippling.”
And while she “would love” to have more kids, the single mom still has “to figure out the other side of it”- chiefly, who on earth the father would be?!
Miller also opens up about her post-pregnancy body and the changes she’s noticed.
Lena Dunham recently described her body as “an ever changing organism,” and that’s definitely something the “American Sniper” actress says she can relate to. “I do miss my breasts being where they were,” Miller says. “And, yes, I have nipples like fighter pilots’ thumbs. But I also sort of like that they’re a little ’70s. And that they fed my kid.”
The actress most recently starred in the well-received biographical adventure drama “The Lost City of Z”, opposite Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland.
