“I have been fortunate enough to have been part of the Burberry family for many years and it never feels like work,” Sienna expressed in a statement. “Christopher and Asif are incredibly talented and the combination of their talents has materialized in this really special film, which I am honoured to be a part of.”
Meryl recently opened up about her and Hugh‘s love in the film and how it should not be dismissed in spite of the infidelities.
“I think especially, peering into other people’s relationships, it’s almost always not what you think it is from the outside, and I think it’s an accurate portrayal of realistic, delusional love,” Meryl explained (via CBS News). “It’s realistic because it is what it is and there is illusion and they both prop up… in this bubble of happiness.”
“I mean one of the genius things that Stephen did that’s embedded in the film is even in the margins, you feel the warmth,” Meryl added. “There’s so many analogies to now, figuring out what makes life worth living. Love and art, as far as I’m concerned, is right smack in the middle. So the compromises that people make to keep their happiness intact — I think that’s all in the service of good.”
