10 FEBRUARY 2009 As Sienna Miller looks to her future with a reported reconciliation with Balthazar Getty and two new films recently wrapped up, she has joined Hollywood's leading ladies, including Emily Blunt and Susan Sarandon, to bring to life top literary heroines. And in HELLO! this week we have the exclusive never-before-seen portraits.
This week's issue, number 1059, includes glamorous images of the actresses giving a modern interpretation to characters like War And Peace's Natasha, recreated by Sienna, Scarlett O'Hara, portrayed by Eva Longoria, and The Importance Of Being Earnest's Gwendolyn, played by Emily.
Taking part in Montblanc's Signature for Good campaign, in conjunction with UNICEF - helping to raise funds to combat illiteracy - was something former model Sienna was only too happy to do.
"I think that books have probably been my biggest inspiration. I remember reading CS Lewis' Narnia series as a child and the imagination I found in those pages probably led me to do what I do for a living."
For Desperate Housewives' actress Marcia Cross – starring as The Lady Of The Camellias' Marguerite – there was a personal reason to get involved. "My two girls are already devouring book after book and I cannot imagine this gift not being experienced by children everywhere," she explains.
Also in this week's photo-packed magazine we have an exclusive interview with footballer Robbie Keane and his wife Claudine as they share their baby news exclusively with HELLO! on sale now.
