"Once I'm in, I'm in." As a single mum to 9-year-old Marlowe, Sienna Miller says she isn't a dater.

Sienna Miller was the 'It' girl of the 2000s. And in 2022, her celebrity status is experiencing a resurgence. 

She's an accomplished actor, a mum to daughter Marlowe and now regularly attends red carpet events with her new boyfriend, 25-year-old Englishman Oli Green.

The duo won over fans on the red carpet at Vanity Fair's 2022 Oscars after-party in Beverly Hills two months ago. Green is a model and actor, best known for his modelling work in various Burberry campaigns.

It's been Miller's relationships that have been poured over by the tabloid press, including her notable on-again-off-again relationship with Jude Law. But as she said recently to DuJour: "I've dealt with very public heartbreak. I was never somebody who dreamt of getting married. I've been engaged a few times, but I've never been married. It's better than three divorces, I think."

Something Miller has alluded to in past interviews has been the challenges of dating as a single mum with a nine-year-old daughter. 

"I'm not a dater," Miller said. "I've never been one. Once I'm in, I'm in. And I'm also quite shy. My life has sort of unfolded in a different way and I'm fine with it. My life was never going to be orthodox. A, I'm still alive. B, I'm still working and C, I'm incredibly happy in my personal life. So, yeah, things are pretty great, honestly."

Here's what Miller has said about her previous relationships.

Jude Law.

In 2003, Jude Law was in the midst of divorcing from his then-wife Sadie Frost. He landed a role in Alfie where he fell in love with his 21-year-old co-star Sienna Miller. A year into their relationship, he proposed to her on Christmas Day.

In the early days of their relationship, tabloids often painted Miller as 'the other woman' who stole Law from his sweet relationship with Frost, who he shared three children with.

Then in 2005, it was revealed that Law was having an affair with the pair's nanny, Daisy Wright – and therefore cheating on Miller.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun at the time, Wright shared the ins and outs of their affair in great detail, even handing over diary entries that documented their encounters.

Law released a statement at the time saying: "I'm deeply ashamed and upset that I have hurt Sienna and the people most close to us. I want to publicly apologise to Sienna and our respective families for the pain I've caused."

"That was one of the most challenging moments I hope I'll ever have to experience," Miller told the Daily Beast in 2020. "With that level of public heartbreak, to have to get out of a bed..."

After the news broke, Miller and Law attempted to make their relationship work and all the while, British tabloids swarmed the young star. It was later revealed in court that she had an affair with Daniel Craig in 2005. 

"It was at the height of all that paparazzi madness, and in London where there was an epidemic of bad behaviour. They knew where I would be every night... There were moments where it came close to making me really feel crazy, and it was incredibly aggressive."

Law and Miller separated in 2006. Then in 2009, they began dating each other again. The couple attended the 2010 Met Gala together, but ultimately ended their relationship in February 2011.

In 2008, Miller had a relationship with actor and DJ Balthazar Getty – best known for his family who are oil tycoons and heirs. 

The problem for the pair was that Getty was married at the time of their fling to Rosetta Millington, the mother of his four children. The cheating scandal led to a two-year separation between Balthazar and his fashion designer spouse, but they eventually reconciled and remain together. 

"Here's the bottom line: It was a very challenging time for everybody involved," Getty said to Harper's Bazaar in 2010. "But I loved and missed my family too much not to make it work. Rosetta is understanding enough and spiritual enough to let us try."

Reflecting on the affair to Esquire, Miller said: "I'm very lucky to have a second chance in that town [Hollywood]... It was really bad. What was going on in my private life was not an easy thing to read about. People don't want to see films with people they don't approve of in them."

In 2011, Miller found love with fellow British actor Tom Sturridge. They soon became engaged and welcomed a daughter Marlowe Ottoline Layng Sturridge in 2012. 

By 2015, they had announced they were separating.

In the wake of the split in 2015, Miller said to British Vogue: "It's been really quite overwhelming recently, just with the volume of everything going on. Everything is shifting. It's actually been the s**ttiest year, and amazing. It's always yin and yang. I feel like if you're excelling in one area, it's hard to manage both."

At the time of the split, Miller and Sturridge's daughter was a toddler, with the pair choosing to co-parent.

"Obviously when you have a baby, it's the most incredible experience, but your life is also catapulted into this chaos and you are exhausted. I could literally get on this table and fall asleep," she said at the time.

In 2017, things between the pair were good, regularly spotted by paparazzi catching up together, going on holiday and spending time with their daughter.

"We still love each other," Miller told Harper's Bazaar in 2017. "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. We don't live together, but we do half the time."

She continued: "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. He's definitely my best friend in the entire world."

Lucas Zwirner.

In 2018, Miller and Lucas Zwirner were first spotted together after attending her ex-fiancé Tom Sturridge’s birthday party. Zwirner is the editorial director of publishing house David Zwirner Books. His dad is also a famous art dealer.

The pair attended plenty of famous weddings together – including the nuptials of Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney, and Ellie Goulding’s wedding to Caspar Jopling.

After one year of dating, Miller and Zwirner were engaged. 

But by the end of August 2020, they confirmed they had split.

She said in April 2022 to Elle: "[I 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."

Miller said she's now open to having more kids, but not "determined". 

She also said about her daughter that spending time together on set is something they both love to do.

"She gets jealous if there's another kid involved," the actress told Us Weekly. "I will not have her on set on those days. If I'm being intimate with another child, she's furious. She sits there with her headphones on by the monitor and says, 'That was good'," Miller laughed.

"She gets treated like a queen. She runs around in the makeup trailer wearing wigs and stealing things off the craft service table. It's a nice place for a kid to grow up, but the fame does not infiltrate our life."
