Sienna Miller Reveals Chadwick Boseman Donated To Cover Her Salary

The Loudest Voice’ star Sienna Miller revealed a secret between her and the late actor Chadwick Boseman during a new interview with Empire magazine. Miller shared publicly for the first time that Boseman had donated a portion of his own salary to help her on getting a fair salary for her role in ’21 Bridges’ dated 2019.

Miller, representing a narcotics detective in the film alongside Chadwick Boseman, began:

He produced ’21 Bridges,’ and had been really active in trying to get me to do it. He was a fan of my work, which was thrilling, because it was reciprocated from me to him, tenfold. So he approached me to do it, he offered me this film, and it was at a time when I really didn’t want to work anymore. I’d been working non-stop and I was exhausted, but then I wanted to work with him.”

Then the star said that it was a pretty big budget film and she had known about the pay disparity in Hollywood, however, she asked for a number that the studio wouldn’t get to. She continued:

“And because I was hesitant to go back to work and my daughter was starting school and it was an inconvenient time, I said, ‘I’ll do it if I’m compensated in the right way.’ And Chadwick ended up donating some of his salary to get me to the number that I had asked for. He said that that was what I deserved to be paid.”

The 38-year-old star concluded her words by telling of a conversation between them that surprised her:

“That kind of thing just doesn’t happen. He said, ‘You’re getting paid what you deserve, and what you’re worth.’ It’s just unfathomable to imagine another man in that town behaving that graciously or respectfully. In the aftermath of this I’ve told other male actor friends of mine that story and they all go very very quiet and go home and probably have to sit and think about things for a while. But there was no showiness, it was, ‘Of course I’ll get you to that number, because that’s what you should be paid.”

As known, Boseman passed away on August 28 from complications related to colon cancer he had been diagnosed in 2016. The ‘Black Panther’ actor was 43.
