Questions and Answers With Sienna Miller

Quote
And what's the most outrageous lie you've ever heard about yourself?
 Oh my god, there are so many! That once I was having an affair with Sean Bean because I cooked him my famous beef stew!
I've never made beef stew or met Sean Bean, so that was pretty extraordinary! We've never even met! Which is funny! And I did (finally) meet him and we just cracked up laughing! We thought it was hilarious, obviously

From a Billy Connolly interview

Quote
You're aware that with your film work, by the way, that you rival Sean Bean. That Sean Bean is a human spoiler: this film aside, you seem to die in everything you appear in. As does Sean Bean.

That's me, that's me! Dead man walking! If I start supporting Sheffield United, you'll know I've bought the whole thing!

Did you ever see him in When Saturday Comes?

Yes! Yes! I think Sean Bean is - it sounds stupid to say - underrated. But I think he is. He gets huge publicity and huge admiration, but I don't think he's held in the light he should be. I think he's extraordinarily better than he's given credit for.

I totally agree. Sean Bean is an AMAZING TALENT and unfortunately NOT as famous as he should be. I hope
that changes soon !!

I'm not sure I really want him to be famous as much as well regarded.  Famous is all well and good and a high profile will always help with the awareness of casting agents and directors though prob. all of them know who he is by now but I want him to be really, really *known* and thought of as a wonderful versatile actor and then be A list relevant - after Tracey, anything is possible and I want more in that vein, more 'serious' stuff that shows off what this uber talented man can do.

I kinda want to re-write some of him; to lose the silly comments that accompany every article about him - the dying and the "one doesn't simply" line, and the "four times married" that is shoved in everywhere however irrelevant to the subject matter of the piece - and replace those ideas of him with those wonderful scenes from the "Enemy of Man" trailer, his amazing performance in "Clarissa" - the most visceral yet gentlemanly fight scenes I have ever seen b.t.w. - where the viewer goes from utter revulsion to pity in a moment; how powerful was that and how many actors could provoke such a change in those feelings in an audience in a split second? - or Tracey, not necessarily the more well known roles but the ones that show what he can do.  I want his talent to be taken seriously, really seriously - I want an Oscar for him!

The 'problem' with our knowledge of him is that we study every move, every nuance, every look in a way that the more casual observer may not have done, and we can look at any part of his career at any time, or huge blocks of one era, in a way that 'normal' viewers and maybe casting agents just don't have the time or interest to do.  Our close analysis, watching of everything not just the more famous roles, and re-watching prob. isn't possible for most people and they miss out on seeing what he is truly capable of because of it - our joy, their loss.

That was totally AMAZING !! I wish I could write down my thoughts and feelings the way you can. Your
statements about Sean are very accurate, intelligent, and beautiful. As a huge Sean Bean fan I can NOT
disagree with you !!!

Togo Igawa: how I became the RSC’s first Japanese actor

Quote
During the rehearsals of The Fair Maid of the West, the director Trevor Nunn gave me only one note: “Togo, your character, Alcade, I think he is always angry.” The next day, I started twitching my right shoulder when Alcade showed his anger. When we performed the play at the Swan’s official opening, with the Queen, Sean Bean whispered when we passed each other in the corridor: “Togo, the Queen laughed at your twitching.” It was a majestic honour for the first Japanese actor to become a member of the company.

Lesley Joseph has admitted she is jealous that Downton Abbey bagged a cameo from George Clooney and not Birds Of A Feather.
 Lesley said: "If I could have any guest on Birds it would be George Clooney. I'm so jealous Downton Abbey have nabbed him!"

Co-star Linda added: "I'd plump for Sean Bean. I'd love Tracey to have a fling with him and a nice bed scene!"

I totally agree with Linda, Sean is NUMBER ONE in my book not GC. I've watched many of his movies and
he does nothing for me. I'm sure he's a nice person, but he doesn't have the intense ANIMAL MAGNETISM
that Sean has !!

Good looking obviously but yeah, no magnetism, no 'phwoar' manliness whatsoever.  Sean is positively dripping with testosterone and George, well, not!

I read a quote from someone who had met him and she said he is utterly charming, and even at her age gave her quite the flutter with his ability to make you feel as though you are the only woman in the room, the only woman who has ever mattered to him, however, she also said that he is *the* most manicured man she has ever met; every hair perfect, eyebrows immaculate, the cleanest pores she has ever seen, nails buffed like mirrors and little diamonds in his buttons.  Obviously there are times when our lad looks as though a facial might do him some good, and his hair has needed a wash in some interviews but I would much prefer his brand of 'real man' masculinity over George's any day. 

And how much time would GC need in the bathroom?  My rule has always been to avoid a man who has more products than me and spends more time in the bathroom than I do!

As to a nice person, well, not that long ago his friends and his pot-bellied pig came before relationships, and then there were/are the practical jokes.  He's a renowned practical joker keeping things going on and on, but, funnily enough, doesn't like it when he is the butt of the joke.  When "Gravity" came out, Tina Fey did that joke at an awards ceremony about George's character not being heroic in the film so much as that George would rather drift out into space and die than spend any time with a woman his own age - hilarious - but his 'retribution' went on for some time, all in the name of a good joke, but perhaps not really.

Also, one of his previous girlfriends - an English model/presenter called Lisa Snowdon - was interviewed after they broke up and said that the practical jokes were endless.  She had spent all day getting ready for an awards event and was wearing a white dress which I'm guessing he would have seen in advance, and he put a balloon with red wine in it on the top of the door so when she came in ... when you think about the time and effort spent making even someone as beautiful as her ready for a red carpet event ... let alone the cost of the no doubt beautiful and very expensive dress that was ruined (not to mention the surrounding furnishings), well, I don't think that was funny.  I wouldn't care who he was, that would be the end of that relationship for me.  So nice?  Nah, not so much!

Thanks for the info Amber I was unaware of all this silly behavior. So your right nice is not the right word
for him. Immature 12 year old seems more accurate. Which is a sad comment for a man over 50 !!

Actor and former Mr Universe sets up Devon Bed and Breakfast for quiet life

Quote
“I remember sharing a car back from a set with Sean Bean and we were talking and I said I had a yacht in Turkey and he replied ‘you lucky bugger’. My whole impression of him is he has made a lot of money and made great films but he was envious of me with my boat.”

It's a small world.  I've just googled his B&B and discovered it's only a couple of streets away from a place I stayed in for a weekend break at the end of last year.

I wonder what Sean was more envious of... the boat in Turkey or the ability to switch off and laze about on said boat.  We have evidence from interviews that he admits to not being good at taking breaks (as in holidays) and being a bit of a workaholic.

I could be wrong, we don't know him so all we have is what he says in interviews and a lot of conjecture, but I have always thought he is one of those men that didn't really get a chance to learn how to live well, and I think it's part of the working class, northern, work ethic thing.  My Dad was the same, and his Dad would have been too, and those ethics if you like, obviously rub off on children.  My father was always proud that he had never been unemployed, not one day; he had always finished a job either with holiday to use up or left a job on Friday and started another on Monday, not that he had that many.  He had been a specialist Japanese telegraphist in WWII - not the most useful thing to be in civvy street - so the day after he returned home after he was de-mobbed, he started on a bricklaying course because so much rebuilding was needed afterwards.  He went from that straight into a job with the government again with no time off.  He never collected any benefits either; he worked, he earned, he earned more than he spent and he paid for all he needed.  Benefits, to him, were for people who needed them, who couldn't work, and as he could, that was that, and he had his dour Scottish father to thank for those values but they are typical of northern, working class men of a certain age and even though my father, by his intelligence and his job, became middle class - just as Sean has - those values and ideas never left him and he truly didn't know what to do with himself when he had to take leave from work.  He went fishing, and not very often, but apart from that he just did work on our houses, home improvements, decorating, landscaping the gardens, whatever we needed or wanted to be done, and whatever would improve the value of the properties, and in the evening he watched television.  He didn't seem to know how to do much beyond the work, and the relaxation of television when he was too tired to do anything else.

From what I've read, Sean sounds the same and men like him need to learn how to relax, learn how to do other things that give them peace.  He says he reads, sleeps, watches television and potters in his garden, and there are the odd short breaks like Matera but the rest is all work, work, work.  He definitely needs a strong woman in his life to show him the way - if you will - show him what other things there are in life, what places there are to visit without it being a work thing, without thinking about work.  There are so many exhibitions, galleries and museums in London let alone everywhere else but unless you are fine doing those kind of things on your own, which he doesn't seem to be - only children have such an advantage in life in that respect - you need someone to do them with and that someone has to do the guiding in the case of someone like Sean.  There is so much more to life than he is getting with his workaholic nature but I'm betting he could learn - he is certainly intelligent enough - he just needs a knowledgeable and strong hand on the tiller, in my opinion.
