Actor Tom Sturridge read Bella Swan's lines for his former housemate Robert Pattinson's first Twilight audition tape. Kristen Stewart, who went on to romance Pattinson on and off the screen, had already been cast as Bella in the film franchise.
Actress Sienna Miller has opened up about her past mistakes in a candid new magazine interview, insisting she is lucky to still have a Hollywood career. As ex-boyfriend Jude Law testifies about her alleged affair with Daniel Craig, while they were dating, as part of a trial into the U.K.'s phone-hacking scandal, of which both he and Miller were victims, the Alfie star admits she made life difficult for herself by not "behaving the way you should" in her personal life.
The actress also famously dated Rhys Ifans and Balthazar Getty, who was married with four kids at the time, and tells Britain's Esquire magazine, "I sabotaged things. I burnt a lot of bridges."
She adds, "On set, I was first to arrive, last to leave, best friends with the crew, totally professional, no d**king around. But when I wasn't at work, I wasn't behaving the way you should.
"I'm very lucky to have a second chance in that town... It was really bad. What was going on in my private life was not an easy thing to read about. People don't want to see films with people they don't approve of in them."
Miller also credits her reconciliation with Law after a bitter break-up, amid a cheating scandal, for helping to mend the former couple's relationship and turning them into good friend for life.
She explains, "When something ends in a way like that, it's important if you can, in a way, go back and revisit it and either shut that door or create a new room. So it (reconciliation) was a very healthy, cathartic experience, and I think it paved the way for both of us to have great futures with no animosity or drama.
"(It was) such a huge relief, to heal that. And I'm great friends with him and with his children. I love them, madly. Just huge love and respect for all of them."
Miller has her own family now - she became a mum to daughter Marlowe 18 months ago and is engaged to marry actor Tom Sturridge.
She says, "I feel really settled. I have a wonderful life. I'm up every morning with a little baby. That gives you incredible perspective. It's such a gift. And it's grounding in a way you can't describe.
"(And Tom) is the antithesis of me, really. And that's a first for me, to be in a relationship with someone who's in a lot of respects very different. He's the perfect balance to my lunacy, which makes him sound really boring, but he's not, at all. It's good, it works. It's not easy, of course, but we're a family and I love that. I wake up and I'm like, 'I'm a family, I'm a grown up!' I still can't believe it."
Twilight star Jamie Campbell Bower is the latest British actor to front a Burberry campaign. The 25 year old appears in the brand's Spring/Summer 2014 advertising drive, following in the footsteps of Sienna Miller, Tom Sturridge and Emma Watson.
Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge threw a joint party to celebrate their birthdays in London on Thursday night (05Dec13). The stars both have a birthday later this month (Dec13), so their friends turned out for an early celebration in the British capital.
Twilight actor Robert Pattinson was among the guests at the bash, which was held at a venue in Notting Hill, west London, along with socialite Poppy Delevingne.
Pattinson was seen leaving the bash with Miller and Sturridge, who were carrying armfuls of unopened gifts.
Miller turns 32 on 28 December (13), and her partner will be 28 on 21 December (13).
"I'm nervous because I haven't been on-set in a year. I've been changing diapers. Any sex appeal I ever had has gone." Sienna Miller on her first acting gig, a film with funnyman Vince Vaughn, since becoming a mum to one-year-old daughter Marlowe.
British actress Carey Mulligan is to take on Julie Christie's iconic tole of Bathsheba Everdene in a new movie adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel Far From The Madding Crowd. Christie starred alongside Terence Stamp, Alan Bates and Peter Finch in director John Schlesinger's classic 1967 film, and now Mulligan will lead a cast that includes Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge and Michael Sheen in the remake.
Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg will direct the project, which will shoot on location across the U.K. in Dorset, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and London.
Actor Shia Labeouf has reached a settlement with the producers of Broadway production Orphans after he was fired from the show earlier this year (13). The Transformers star was set to make his New York stage debut opposite Alec Baldwin and Tom Sturridge in March (13), but he bowed out of the play during the second week of rehearsals due to creative differences with his co-stars and director Daniel Sullivan.
LaBeouf later explained he was actually fired from the show because he did not get along with his castmates, so he filed a grievance with the Actors' Equity union against producers Robert Cole and Frederick Zollo for unfair termination.
Both parties have now put an end to their dispute after reaching an undisclosed agreement.
A joint statement issued to the New York Times reads, "We regret the circumstances that caused Shia's departure from Orphans. Shia is a gifted actor whose full preparation to undertake the role of Treat demonstrated his respect and devotion to the play.
"The parties recognise that neither Mr. LaBeouf nor the producers was at fault. We have the utmost respect for Shia and his acting abilities, and would welcome the opportunity to work with him in the future."
British stars Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge slide into slick trench coats for Burberry's Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign. From sweet hand holding to passionate — and super steamy — kissing, the engaged couple is too cute for words. The ad, titled "Trench Kiss," is the first time a set of real-life lovers have been on display in a Burberry campaign. And we couldn't be more grateful to watch this stunning couple in action!
Throughout the ad, Sturridge and Miller brew some real magical chemistry as they gaze into each other's eyes. After a sexy embrace, Sienna goes on her tippy toes in her cheetah shoes (that perfectly match her lover's pair) to plant a sexy smooch on her beau. Ow ow! This is one intense act of PDA that I don't mind one bit!
As "Hold Me" by Tom Odell plays innocently in the background, The Pirate Radio star and his fiancée look swagged out in leather jackets and dark shades — but their obvious affection towards one another makes the ad more fluffy than hardcore. So we kindly thank Burberry for this ad that oozes sheer adorableness.

Celebrity couple Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge have shown off their relationship in a steamy new advertising campaign for British fashion house Burberry. The usually private pair, which is parents to daughter Marlowe, is seen up-close-and-personal in the stylish black and white shots, which were snapped by celebrated photographer Mario Testino.
In one picture, Sturridge grabs Miller's leather-clad backside, while in another, the couple kiss behind a Burberry bag.
Burberry designer Christopher Bailey says, "This was a shoot full of love and laughter. It was such a treat to work with Sienna and Tom, and to capture their magic together."
They are the latest Brits to pose for the brand, following in the footsteps of Emma Watson, Kate Moss, Eddie Redmayne and Cara Delevingne.
The 67th Annual Tony Awards, held at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, was swimming with A-List stars — and from the moment they stepped foot on the red carpet to the final curtain call, they were having a blast. We should know, we were in the thick of it.
While viewers at home were transported to Broadway with 15 musical numbers and laughed along with Neil Patrick Harris' fantastic hosting, those of us on the red carpet and in the media room were privvy to a little extra bit of fun. Here's what the TV cameras didn't catch.
Mike Tyson, who enjoyed a stint on Broadway with a one-man show last year, amazed everyone with his cameo appearance in Harris' show-stopping (or show-starting, as the case may be) opening number. But before he hit the stage, we watched Tyson hug The Sopranos' Steven Van Zandt (who would later present an award with Tom Hanks) on the red carpet. Tyson looked dapper on stage, but outside in the 90-degree New York City heat, the fighter was sweating like he had just exited the boxing ring. Inside the theater, Tyson cozied up with Now You See Me star Jesse Eisenberg.
Broadway veteran Bernadette Peters cut a stunning figure in a green Donna Karan Atelier with a basketweave texture. What you didn't see was the assistant she had on hand to scoop up and properly arrange her gown's train between poses.
Cyndi Lauper was the well-deserving belle of the ball on Sunday night. Not only did she rake in six awards (her show, Kinky Boots, was nominated for 13), but she was incredibly gracious to her fans and her energy was boundless. On the carpet before the ceremony, Lauper made sure to wave to the legions of fans lining the street (Glee and Annie star Jane Lynch did the same). Following her win, she hammed it up for photographers in the press room.
On the red carpet, Scarlett Johansson greeted Sienna Miller (whose fiancé, Tom Sturridge, was nominated for his work in Orphans) with a kiss on the cheek. Backstage, Johansson was equally chummy with fellow presenter Alan Cumming. The two played patty-cake before presenting the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role.
On the carpet, Cumming made peace signs and crazy faces while posing for photographers.
Four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald (whom you may know from Private Practice) shared the spotlight — and a hug — with her daughter, Zoe.
Smash star Megan Hilty shared the stage with fellow Broadway actors-turned-TV-stars Laura Benanti (Go On) and Andrew Rannells (The New Normal) for a laugh-out-loud musical number that poked fun at their bad luck on screen (cliffnotes: their shows have all been canceled). Hilty's Smash co-stars Debra Messing and Will Chase — who notoriously had a real-life affair — were conspicuously cuddly.
Home audiences were lucky enough to see this tender moment between Annie star Sunny (who plays Sandy, the lovable stray canine) and host Neil Patrick Harris. But since it's just too cute for words, here it is again:
