Having suffered in the spotlight of peak paparazzi glare in the noughties, Sienna is notoriously private about her personal life these days – there’s just one picture on her Instagram page from 2017.

However, speaking to Elle UK, Sienna Miller, who turned 40 in December last year, shared that her life is ‘really banal at the moment… [but] I like the tranquility of it.’

Seemingly relieved to have left not just her twenties behind but her thirties, too, Sienna admitted that she felt, ‘pressure… [about] kids, and should I have more, and why haven’t I, and all of that, which is a really loud noise. Biology is incredibly cruel on women in that decade – that’s the headline, or it certainly was for me. Then I got to 40 and I froze some eggs. Having been really focused on the need to have another baby, I’m just like, if it happens, it happens. That kind of existential threat has dissipated.’

She shared a glimpse at her ‘banal’ daily routine, which involves getting up at 6:20am to wake up her nine-year-old daughter Marlowe to have breakfast together, before dropping her at school bus and taking the dogs for a walk in the park. Then her day consists of ‘reading scripts, developing her skincare line, reading books for future projects,’ reported Elle.

‘I like the tranquillity of it,’ she confirmed. ‘There’s just much less anxiety, for no specific reason, other than maybe turning 40 and surrendering to being on some sort of life journey that is completely irrelevant. I think I know what matters to me: my friendships, my child and, ultimately, trying to be happy. That really is enough, with bursts of intensity and creativity. And, you know, way too much fun still at times, but I feel more in control of my life. And that’s really, really relieving.’
