Sienna Miller said she had “zero chemistry” with her co-star Ben Affleck in the film Live by Night, despite playing a pair of lovers in the film.
The 40-year-old actress said the actor seemed more like a “brother” during an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show.
“We had zero chemistry whatever it was hysterical,” she said. “We should be in love, we couldn’t be less attracted to each other, which was hysterical.”
“Zero Chemistry”: Sienna Miller said she had “zero chemistry” with her co-star Ben Affleck in the movie Live by Night, although she played lovers in the film (pictured in the film).
She added, “He’s got a huge head, I’ve got a small one, so they’d have to like to put me a little in front of him… and he directed the movie and I could barely watch it because I was laughing the whole time.”
The Anatomy of a Scandal star also revealed that she’s quite close to many of her former co-stars, but Ben was like a “brother” and she never laughed more than when they collaborated on the 2016 film.
“I’ve never laughed so much in my life,” she said. “I mean, that sounds like a ridiculous thing to say and like a name-dropping thing, but I’m really serious.”
Ben directed, produced, starred and wrote the crime drama based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Dennis Lehane, which went on to hit the box office and reportedly lost $75 million to Warner Bros.

It comes after Ben recently got re-engaged to Jennifer Lopez, which the 52-year-old actress announced in a clip on her website.
Jennifer and Ben rekindled their romance last year after previously being in a relationship between 2002 and 2004.
The duo first got engaged in 2003 but split the following year after postponing their wedding.

In the past: Sienna admitted she’s pretty close to many of her former co-stars, but Ben Affleck was like a “brother” and she never laughed more than in 2016 when they worked together on the set of Live by Night
Elsewhere in the chat, Sienna revealed her close connection to legendary late musician David Bowie.
She admitted her mother worked as his assistant years ago, and while she’d never met the legendary rock star, she managed to influence the Space Oddity singer, albeit for an awkward moment.
Sienna recalled living in the same building as Bowie earlier in her career and throwing a party, only for her bathroom to flood, causing his apartment to overflow as well.
“Is it true, in all the years I’ve known you, has your mother worked for David Bowie?” Drew asked Sienna, completely shocked.
“Yeah, I know… he’s number one for everyone. I don’t think there will ever be a cooler, better, more talented, more original person. He’s amazing and I’ve never met him,” she said. I wonder what’s the use of it mum if you had this, unfortunately it was before I was born.
“She used to tell these stories about how she’d like to bring him coffee in the morning, she was his assistant and he was kind of, I don’t know, playing something on the piano and he was like, ‘Yeah, what are you doing? remember,” you know, imagine having that.”
Sienna recalled moving into the same building as Bowie when she was working on her first play.

“I like having somehow tricked someone into giving me this extraordinary apartment that was like an airport hangar and it was empty, it was hardly like there was a mattress on the floor but I’d love to ride roller skates around “, she said .
“But I had a Halloween party at this apartment and someone flooded the bathroom, which then flooded David Bowie’s apartment, so he didn’t like me very much. Apparently he was nice about it.”
Drew tried to make Sienna feel at least a little better about the revelation: “I’m sure David saw a few things in his time, he probably isn’t that surprised.”
Sienna agreed: “Actually, it’s true, he flooded people’s bathrooms.”
Bowie kept his battle with liver cancer a secret and died on January 10, 2016, days after turning 69 and releasing his 25th and final studio album, Blackstar.
