Casanova star Sienna loves the single life

Actress Sienna Miller sang the praises of the single life tonight at the premier of her new film Casanova.

The 24-year-old looked radiant following her split from boyfriend Jude Law.

And asked if she had any advice for single girls spending Valentine’s Day alone she grinned: “Just stay single. Stick together with your girlies.”

Taking her own advice, Miller attended the Leicester Square premiere with a gaggle of girlfriends, plus her mother and stepmother Kelly Hoppen.

She revealed she will spend Valentine’s Day on a girlie trip to the bowling alley.

Miller wore a white Louis Vuitton dress, vintage beads and a purple Burberry bag.

Casanova is her biggest film to date and stars Australian heartthrob Heath Ledger.

Ledger plays the legendary lover who beds scores of women until he meets his match in Francesca Bruni, played by Miller.

The actress said working with Ledger had been fun.

“We played practical jokes constantly,” she said. “We had grape competitions, where we had to stuff as many grapes into our mouths as we could. I got nine and a half and he got eight.”

She described the film as “light-hearted, romantic and perfect for Valentine’s Day”.

The actress has ended her on-off relationship with Law and has been spotted getting cosy with Star Wars actor Hayden Christensen.

The film opens nationwide on February 17.

Stars at the premiere included Kelly Osbourne, Jeremy Irons, Fearne Cotton and Hollyoaks actress Sarah Dunn.

Earlier Miller announced she is to ask Prime Minister Tony Blair to protect her from the paparazzi.

She will present a petition to the Prime Minister demanding tighter privacy laws.

Despite posing happily for photographers on the red carpet, the actress said she was sick of being snapped wherever she goes.

In an interview with BBC Radio Five Live’s Colin Paterson, she declared war on the paparazzi.

“I was seriously thinking of trying to get hold of Tony Blair,” she said.

“I’ve found myself in situations where I felt physically threatened. It’s reached a level where they have every single right and you have none.

“I appreciate you are putting yourself up for it to a certain degree, but I think there has to be some boundaries. It’s stalking and there should be stricter laws on it.”

Miller claimed to have the backing of many other celebrities, although she declined to name any.

“I can think of a few actors who would support it,” she said.
