Sienna Miller would love to quit the UK for the US, but claims she can't afford it
Sienna Miller claims she can't afford to buy a home in America.
The 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' actress, who has starred in a string of Hollywood movies, insists she doesn't have enough money to spend on a property in the US.
Sienna - who is to star in a New York theatre production of 'After Miss Julie' - said: "I'd love to move to the States at some point. I just can't afford to right now. Maybe if I get to do 'G.I. Joe 3', I'll be able to afford a place, because doing plays on Broadway doesn't really enable house buying.
"I've got a house in London that I'm trying to sell, and it's obviously a terrible time to try and sell property there. But I'll keep my cottage in the country, which is where I spend most of my time. It's a haven to me. But until I sell my house in London I can't afford anywhere else. It would make sense to be in Los Angeles."
Although Sienna - who was born in New York and raised in London - enjoys spending time in America, she does miss tending to her garden and visiting pubs in the UK.
The 27-year-old blonde star explained: "England is still definitely my home. I still live in London, but I really love it in Los Angeles. I have a great time when I'm here, but I miss, you know, a good pub when I'm away.
"I was brought up in Britain and my dog's there, my cottage is there, my garden's there and that always needs pruning. My family are there and its home. I'm definitely an English girl, but at the same time, I really love being able to travel and feel very at home now in Los Angeles.
"Everyone in Los Angeles is very positive and upbeat, whereas London can get quite miserable at times."
