Sienna Miller is confirming what we all knew: being an actress and a mom is TOUGH AS HELLLL.
Clearly, last year has been one of extremes for the girl- ending her four year-long relationship with boyfriend Tom Sturridge and working hard all year on four different movies. And she lets Vogue know what that shizzz is alll about:
On the year: “Everything’s shifting,” she explained to the mag. “It’s actually been the s–ttiest year, and amazing. It’s always yin and yang. I feel like if you’re excelling in one area, it’s hard to manage both and I do feel like the work is going really well.”
On being a mom: “Obviously when you have a baby it’s the most incredible experience but your life is also catapulted into this chaos and you are exhausted,” Miller told Vogue. “I could literally get on this table and fall asleep.”
On “the curse of motherhood”: “I’d like to be better at managing things; I’d like to be more super — although we’re never going to feel it, even if we are. That’s the curse of motherhood — we just run ourselves ragged. I’m just trying to get a sense of what that guilt is. I sometimes feel like it’s a totally invented emotion. It’s strange to be punishing ourselves this way. It’s not healthy.”
Sounds pretty honest to me. Sienna- hang in there. Maybe 2016 is the year of chill?

Because she was cut out of the film “Black Mass,” which stars, like EVERYONE.
“Black Mass” director Scott Cooper confirmed that actress Sienna Miller has been cut from the film, based on “narrative choices,” but you know this shizz doesn’t happen to Jennifer Lawrence, yo. The Boston Globe reports:
Cooper said that Miller was “fantastic” opposite Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger’s girlfriend Catherine Greig, but that when it came time to edit, he had to narrow the scope of the story.
“It came down to narrative choices,” Cooper said.
Miller was spotted shooting scenes for “Black Mass” in Quincy last July. Last November, while on tour to promote her film “American Sniper,” she told the Globe that she had worked with a dialect coach to perfect her Boston accent for the local project. “Up until the day before I flew here, I couldn’t do it and it sounded stupid,” she said. “And I was sort of religiously watching every film ever set in South Boston: ‘Good Will Hunting,’ ‘Gone Baby Gone,’ ‘The Town.’ Catherine had a thick accent, so I hope I do it justice.”
Cooper explained that he decided to focus on Bulger’s life before he left Boston, and that the gangster’s years as a fugitive with Greig were “less dramatic.”
Sorry, Sienna. I gotta say though- I would LOVE to hear that Boston accent.

Aaron Sorkin does.
Cate Blanchett is attached to star in an authorized biopic of Hollywood legend Lucille Ball that Sorkin is set to write. I know, really chill, low-stakes movie. NOT.
The film will tackle Ball’s 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz, their show and kids, and her second marriage to Gary Morton. Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. will produce, so it might be a real circus of kids and feelings and you know, all THAT kind of thing.
Blanchett won the first of two Academy Awards for playing another Hollywood icon, Katharine Hepburn, in Martin Scorsese‘s “The Aviator,” so she’s no stranger to taking on large roles with lots of history. What do you think she’ll do with the role?
Also, do you think someone else would have been a better fit?

Will these two be making another go at hosting the Oscars?
Two people will handle emcee duties at the 2016 Academy Awards, one of the newly announced producers of the show tells EW. And it sounds like they already know who the duo will be…
“There will be multiple hosts for sure – there will be two,” says David Hill, the former Fox executive who will produce the show with Reginald Hudlin, a producer of Django Unchained and a former entertainment president at BET.
When asked why he thought two hosts would be better, Hill hesitated. “Two is better than one,” he said, before joking. “Just imagine, you’re in there. One of your hosts drops dead from cardiac arrest. What do you do? Second host goes on! And you keep going. … Note to self. Check out their heart rates.”
So who could it be? Options include Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, whose Key & Peele sketch show is ending its run on Comedy Central on an ultra high-note. But at the same time, they aren’t like, Hollywood A lister or anything. My mind (obvi) jumped back to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who ended their three-year contract with the Golden Globes last December and were a total hit.
Either way, anything’s better than James Franco and Anne Hathaway, AM I RIGHT? Who do you think this hosting tag team will be? I’m hoping Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer, who are writing a movie together…
