Sienna Miller & Tom Sturridge Share “Bedtime Every Day”


Single mom Sienna Miller covers the May issue of Allure and opens up about co-parenting 4-year-old daughter Marlowe with ex Tom Sturridge.

On living a few blocks from Sturridge & sharing the bedtime routine: “We do bedtime every day. We felt like as much togetherness as possible would be ideal, and fortunately we really love each other and are best friends, and so that works. It’s not that it’s not complicated, because it is.”

On quitting smoking during her pregnancy: “If it’s about protecting someone else, it’s easy. I don’t see it the same with myself.”

On the the non glamorous side of motherhood: “I had an amazing moment the other day where I just heard this ‘Mama!’ from upstairs. I said, ‘I’m coming, I’m coming.’ And as I got to the landing I just smelled, like, puke. And she’d thrown up basically off the top bunk, so the splatters were like: Pow! Like all four walls. She had the norovirus or whatever. And I skidded on the sick and fell. Whacked my head. Then I get her out of the bunk; she’s crying, covered in sick. I take her to the bathroom, take all her clothes off, and then the dog comes up and starts eating the sick. And I get her in the bath and in my bed, and I’m just, like, literally naked, mopping, and crying at midnight. You know, and that’s parenthood. You’re so enriched by it and so fulfilled, but at the same time, I look at these people who just don’t have any responsibility, and it feels like the responsibility is crippling.”

On her hopes for the future: “[To be] that wise, happy granny, with a sort of wrap around my head and a few beads … in Tuscany…I would love to [have more kids]. Yeah. I have to figure out the other side of it,”

On her post-baby body: “I do miss my breasts being where they were. And, yes, I have nipples like fighter pilots’ thumbs. But I also sort of like that they’re a little ’70s. And that they fed my kid.”
