Sienna spills on Balthazar Getty affair

Sienna Miller has admitted her relationship with Balthazar Getty 'looked awful,' and revealed she can understand why women perceive her to not be a nice person.

'I probably seem like not a particularly nice person, not a girl's girl,' the 27-year-old actress confided to GQ.

Discussing Getty, Miller confessed that dating the married father-of-four had been part of her 'rebellious years,' and commented, 'I think if you put a camera in anyone's life and document it daily for six years, from the age of 21 to 27, there are going to be things that aren't always pretty.

'I do think sometimes people get morally superior without understanding situations. And the situation I got into (with Getty) was not ideal but it happened and if I could go back and be more responsible, I would.

Miller added that the relationship was over, and they are now just friends.

As for relecting on the affair, she added, 'Well, I probably would be less naïve about ignoring the fact that people care... I have a good brain on me but I've never really used it when it came to making decisions about love, which has been a blessing and a curse.'

'I definitely have been foolish. I've made apologies to people I needed to, but I can't apologise to people I don't know for things they don't understand.'

The affair hit the healdlines lasy July, when Sienna was photographed kissing Getty, while topless on a yacht. Getty's wife, Rosetta, immediately went into hiding, alongside the couple's four children.

Defending her reputation, the actress added, 'I'm supposed to be this complete slapper, that's my reputation. But actually I was in a relationship from 19 to 21 with (fashion designer) Dave (Neville), 21 to 24 with Jude, then 25 to 26 with Rhys, and then Balthazar.'

As for her current status, and while the actress admitted to 'a few dalliances' she insisted that she's definitely single for the moment.

'Now I'm completely on my own. I think I've grown up a lot.'
