Sienna loses out on Robin Hood role for making Russell Crowe look 'fat'
Sienna Miller has been dropped from her latest film role amid concerns that she would make her co-star and love interest, Russell Crowe, look ‘fat’.
Yes, you read it right, according to the U.S. rumour mill, Sienna’s role as Maid Marian in the forthcoming £110million Robin Hood remake, Nottingham, is now up for grabs again after movie insiders revealed the lithe 26-year-old would show up an ailing Crowe, who has failed to shed the pounds from his previous movie role in Body of Evidence.
The New York Post reports that Hollywood producers are now on the hunt for ‘an older, plumper actress to play the role so [Crowe] doesn’t look like a paunchy grandpa. Someone in her late 30s or early 40s’.
‘It is a mess,’ one insider told the Post. ‘Russell never lost the weight he put on for Body of Evidence and so the love scenes between him and Sienna would have been laughable. He’s so old and fat and she’s so young and gorgeous. It’s just… gross.’
Ouch, that’s a far cry from the oodles of female fans who gazed at Crowe’s torso in swoon-tastic Gladiator.
The news will come as a big blow to Miller, who is having a rather unlucky run of movie flops, after she was dropped in November from Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes – apparently after her ex, Jude Law, signed on to play Dr Watson.
