Actress slams reports she threw a tantrum in a Pittsburgh pub
Sienna Miller has slammed reports she threw a tantrum when she was removed from a Pittsburgh bar for not carrying any ID.
Young’s Tavern owner Penny Folino told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Sienna, 24, ignored doorman Dan Kovacs’ request for identification at the entrance and ordered a vodka tonic, before she was asked to leave.
Folino told the newspaper: ‘Sienna ripped off her hat and said, “I am Sienna Miller. I am a famous actress!” That’s what she did. She was basically throwing a temper tantrum.’
But the actress denies she threw a strop and in a statement said: ‘I wholeheartedly refute the allegations that I in any way acted in an inappropriate manner when asked for identification at this bar.
‘I was asked to provide ID, and since I didn’t have any with me, I was told I couldn’t be served and asked to leave.
‘I had no problem with this and my family and I left calmly without any further exchange of words.’
Folino stands by her claims, saying: ‘I can’t compete against a famous actress, but I can tell you one thing – I’m not a liar – she is.’
