Sienna Miller who co-starred in “21 Bridges” with the now late Chadwick Boseman has come out to share her experience with the actor on what she noted to be ‘the most astounding thing I’ve experienced’
“I didn’t know whether or not to tell this story, and I haven’t yet. But I am going to tell it, because I think it’s a testament to who he was,” Miller shared with Empire magazine in a tribute to the late actor published on Monday.

“This was a pretty big-budget film, and I know that everybody understands about the pay disparity in Hollywood, but I asked for a number that the studio wouldn’t get to,” Miller explained. “And because I was hesitant to go back to work and my daughter was starting school and it was an inconvenient time, I said, ‘I’ll do it if I’m compensated in the right way.’ And Chadwick ended up donating some of his salary to get me to the number that I had asked for. He said that that was what I deserved to be paid.”
“That kind of thing just doesn’t happen,” she said, recalling that Bossman had told her, “You’re getting paid what you deserve, and what you’re worth.”
Miller noted that she had in the past turned down a major role after she was offered less than half what her male co-stars where been paid.
