During a September interview with Empire, Chadwick’s 21 Bridges co-star Sienna Miller opened up about the late actor’s character.
“He produced 21 Bridges, and had been really active in trying to get me to do it,” Sienna told the outlet. “He was a fan of my work, which was thrilling, because it was reciprocated from me to him, tenfold.”
She continued, “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. 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.”
Sienna explained that she thought it was “unfathomable to imagine another man in that town behaving that graciously or respectfully.” Adding, “There was no showiness, it was, ‘Of course I’ll get you to that number, because that’s what you should be paid.'”
