Sienna Miller opens up about her close bond with ex Tom Sturridge: ‘We still love each other’

By Sharnaz Shahid

Despite calling off their engagement in 2015, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge have remained the best of friends as they continue to co-parent their four-year-old daughter Marlowe. Speaking in a new interview with Harper's Bazaar, the 35-year-old actress has revealed she still has a "lot of love" for her ex-fiancé. "We still love each other," she explained. "I think in a break-up somebody has to be a little bit cruel in order for it to be traditional, but it's not been acrimonious in a way where you would choose to not be around that person."

The former lovebirds began dating in 2011 and got engaged the following year after announcing they were expecting their first child together. Although they lead private lives, the stars are often seen out and about spending time together with their daughter. "We don't live together, as has been reported recently, but we do half the time," added Sienna. "Everybody will stay over or we'll all go on holiday and that's because we genuinely want to be around each other. It's great for our daughter that she has two parents who love each other and are friends." She also noted: "He's definitely my best friend in the entire world."

Since parting ways, Sienna has been linked to American film director Bennett Miller. The couple were first rumoured to be dating in May last year, after they were spotted at a Met Gala afterparty in New York. At the moment, the mother-of-one is preparing for the release of her next blockbuster, The Lost City of Z. Directed by James Gray, the movie follows the story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who disappeared with his son in 1925 during an expedition in the Amazon. She stars alongside Charlie Hunnam in the biopic, which will be released in cinemas later this month.
