Sienna Miller 'didn't want a younger boyfriend' but 'fell in love quickly' with Oli Green

Actress Sienna Miller has confessed she "didn't want a younger boyfriend" but she "fell in love quickly" with Oli Green despite their 15-year age difference.



Sienna Miller "didn't want a younger boyfriend" but she "fell in love quickly" with Oli Green.

The 42-year-old actress started dating Oli after meeting him at a Halloween party and they made their public debut as a couple at an Oscars party in 2022 and welcomed their first child together earlier this year - but Sienna has confessed she initially didn't want to get involved with Oli because of their 15-year age difference.

She told Harper's Bazaar magazine: "I didn’t expect to take it seriously and then quite quickly, I fell in love. I wasn’t like, 'I’m gonna get a younger boyfriend.'

"It was more, 'Why are you young? That’s so annoying'."

However, she found Oli to be "wise and well-adjusted" and she's convinced it comes from generational differences.

Sienna explained: "There is a difference in the way that generation of men respect women. It’s specific to him, he is very wise and well-adjusted, but I do believe it’s also that generation.

"They have grown up with a slightly more level playing field. I see it in his female friends as well as in the men ...

"[I have learned from] people who are younger about how clear they are in their boundaries, having that self-assuredness and self-advocacy, having 'no' in the repertoire in a way that we just weren’t encouraged to have."

The 'Alfie' star went on to explain she now feels "much more balanced and settled and wise" after undergoing years of therapy.

She added: "I think I’ve got some wisdom from all of the things I’ve been through. The more interesting and complicated your life is, the better you’ll end up being."
