Sienna Miller appears nude and pregnant in portrait
Sienna Miller posed for a nude portrait while pregnant with her first child.
The portrait was done by British painter Jonathan Yeo and was presented in Berlin on Thursday, November 8, as part of his collection, "(I've Got You) Under My Skin)." A portion of the painting can be seen above, while the full portrait can be seen on Jonathan Yeo's website (Warning: NSFW).
"This portrait of Sienna was painted a few weeks before the birth of her baby Marlowe and is part of a series of pictures of her which I plan to exhibit next year," Yeo wrote in the catalogue which accompanies the show. "It is a tribute to her courage and self-confidence that she agreed to sit for this. I can think of many figures whose public currency in part revolves around their appearance who would prefer to hide themselves away for nine months."
In July, Miller and her rumored fiance, actor Tom Sturridge, welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Marlowe.
The private couple has not commented on their new addition or, for the most part, on the pregnancy in general. Miller only spoke of her pregnancy once, to Vogue U.K. in April.
"I'm in my second trimester, so I'm I-can-talk-about-it pregnant, even though I'm under strict instructions not to say anything as it would completely defeat the point of everything I've tried to achieve in the last eight years," Miller told Vogue U.K., referring to Britain's phone-hacking scandal and her testimony in the trials. "I'm feeling fine... It's all progressing nicely and it's very exciting."
The 30-year-old "Factory Girl" actress and Sturridge, 26, had been dating for about a year when the baby news was first reported.
Miller's rep had no immediate comment on the report, while Sturridge's rep said, "We don't comment on our client's personal lives at all."
Sturridge made his big-screen debut opposite Reese Witherspoon in the 2004 film "Vanity Fair." He has since starred in films like "Being Julia," "Like Minds," "Pirate Radio" and "Waiting for Forever."
Miller is known for her work in films like "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" and "Alfie," where she met her on-and-off boyfriend "Sherlock Holmes" actor Jude Law. In February 2011, the pair split up for the second time.
Law and Miller were previously engaged in December 2004. In mid-2005, the actor was reported to have had an affair with Daisy Wright, the nanny of his three children, whose mother is Sadie Frost. Law made a public apology, saying he was "deeply ashamed and upset" that he hurt Miller and their families.
The two soon broke up months later and got back together in 2006. The actress said the two were trying to work things out. They then split again and Miller reportedly dated actors such as Rhys Ifans and later, Balthazar Getty, who was married at the time. She and Law had rekindled their romance in 2009.
