Sienna Miller covers Harper's Bazaar December 2012

posted on: Friday, 30 November 2012

Sienna Miller stars as Harper's Bazaar's UK cover girl for December 2012, her first mainstream fashion cover since giving birth earlier this year. In her interview with the magazine she talks all about the joys of pregnancy and becoming a mother. Is it just me or do Hollywood types make the whole thing look so easy and effortless? Here's a snippet of her interview with the mag...

On the joy of childbirth:
“It’s still the most surreal thing, that you can create, that I grew this life inside my stomach, her eyeballs, everything - every little fibre. And I’d expected that she’d be this extension of me and I’d instantly understand who she was because she’d come from me, and then you realise that they are their own people entirely. Very connected to you, of course. But they’re their own person... It’s the best, the greatest thing in the world... I would do that day a million times again. I would do that day, every day. I loved it.”

On the change to her body after giving birth:
“My body’s a completely different thing to me, it’s not mine - all the attachment to its flaws or any aesthetic attachment is gone. You understand what breasts are for; and I have such enormous respect for my body because of what it can do.”

On wanting to develop herself as a parent with fiancée, actor Tom Sturridge, before hiring a nanny:
“It’s just been the three of us, which was amazing, and exhausting. We are going to get a nanny, but it felt important to first learn for myself who I was as a parent.”
