Sienna Miller `snubbed` Bond Girl role

11-Jan-2007 • Casino Royale

Sienna Miller has revealed she turned down the opportunity to be a Bond Girl after being offered the part by James Bond himself, actor Daniel Craig - reports Metro.

Sienna, who recently split from her heartthrob boyfriend, Jude Law, says she turned down the role of Vesper Lynd in Cassino Royale because she didn't feel the time was right for such a role.

"It would have been fun but I didn't want to do it. It would have been great to work with Daniel again though, because he is such a brilliant actor and I'm not surprised at all that he has made such a success of the Bond role," she said.

She added that even if she was offered the role of a classic Bond girl in the new film, tentatively titled 'Bond 22', she doesn't think she would take it.

According to 'Absolute Now', Sienna said: "I really don't think it's the right time for me to be a Bond girl at the moment - as tempting as that is." A close friend of the actress said the reason Sienna keeps turning down the role is because she doesn't want to be typecast.

The friend said: "Sienna knows she is a gorgeous girl and she would be a fabulous Bond girl, but she doesn't want to be admired for her body - she wants to be admired for her acting ability."

Sienna has already starred with Daniel Craig in the British gangster movie Layer Cake. It was rumoured that during their time filming the two became very close, despite Craig being friends with her boyfriend Jude Law.

Miller next plays Edie Sedgwick in the controversial film 'Factory Girl', which opens in the UK on February 9th.
