Sienna Miller apologises for “Sh*tsburgh” Pittsburgh comment
Sienna Miller has quickly backpeddled after calling the US city of Pittsburgh, “Shitsburgh”.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Sienna moaned about being in the city filming The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. She called the city “Shitsburgh” then asked the interviewer: “Can you believe this is my life? Will you pity me when you’re back in your funky New York apartment and I’m still in Pittsburgh? I need to get more glamorous films.”
Now in an apology issued through her publicist, Sienna is complaining that her comments have been “misconstrued and taken out of context.”
“I was referring to the fact that we are shooting almost all night shoots on this film and none of us have had an opportunity to fully explore the city.”
What I have seen of it is beautiful. I came once before to visit the Andy Warhol museum whilst researching a film and found both the city and its inhabitants warm and gracious.”
“My father is from [nearby town] Meadville and is in town to show me round this weekend. I sincerely apologize and hope people realize that conversations can be easily manipulated in print.”
