    Global warming is issue close to Sienna Miller's heart

    Mumbai, July 17 (PTI): Petite Hollywood actor Sienna Miller, best known for her roles in "Alfie" and "Factory Girl", would prefer to be noticed for her work in raising awareness about global warming, a cause very close to her heart.

    "I find there is so much that we can do for the environment. It takes so little time and I am happy to be a part of the campaign to combat global warming," Miller, in India to kick start a campaign for Global Cool, told PTI here.

    "I don't enjoy being a celebrity, at least not in the way that the British tabloids portray me. But I have learnt to manipulate my celebrity status to my advantage.

    "For example, if I am wearing a Global Cool T-shirt and they click me, at least it's good publicity for Global Cool that I am caught wearing their T-shirt," she said.

    Miller has also acted with Amitabh Bachchan, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and actor Heather Graham in a film for Global Cool that was screened at the IIFA awards in Yorkshire last month.

    "I believe that films can make a big difference in raising awareness about the environment. I would love to work in Bollywood, maybe with Amitabh Bachchan on the subject of global warming," she said.

    The 25-year old star, on her second visit to India, has seen her share of Bollywood films.

    "I loved `Monsoon Wedding' and `Water'. I have also seen some of Mr Bachchan's films," she said.

    Miller, who will be in Mumbai for a couple of days, regretted that she has not been able to see more of India.

    "I am planning on coming back next year with my best friend and spending three months travelling around India. I would love to see more of this country," she said.
