Rising star Sienna Miller (remember her?) fell off the radar about five years ago. The reason for that is simple if you ask the British actress herself:
"I sabotaged things," she says. "I burnt a lot of bridges."
There's more self-aware honesty where that came from in an Esquire UK interview that features Sienna Miller baring all ... in more ways than one:

Miller, 32, admits her career hit the skids when her private life became more notable than her professional life, and she can only blame herself.
Miller does note "that [I] certainly wouldn't have been treated in this way were she a man," and maybe she's correct ... but bridges were burnt. Bad.
"I was by no means an innocent," she said. "But I had faith in the goodness of everyone. I was very open. That led me into all sorts of situations that backfired."
She also got caught in one made-for-celebrity gossip scandal after another, starting with her tumultuous relationship with Alfie co-star Jude Law.
Later, she had an affair with married actor Balthazar Getty.
As a result, Miller tells Esquire that roles dried up because "people don't want to see films with people they don't approve of in them," and she stepped aside.
Miller "deliberately disappeared" from the spotlight, and from her own nasty reputation. "I was sick of myself, to be honest, or sick of that perception of me."
"It all felt so f—ing dirty."
Since a big glossy magazine is featuring Sienna Miller topless and giving her all sorts of ink, it's safe to say that things are looking up for her however.
Miller is staging a comeback with roles in three movies, including the Vince Vaughn comedy Business Trip and the true crime drama Foxcatcher.
Her personal life, too, is finally stable: Miller and fiance Tom Sturridge have been together since 2011 and welcomed their first daughter in July 2012.
"When you're in some massive crisis and you look at yourself in a close-up," the actress muses, "you realize just how f—ing insignificant you are."
"I think that's really the greatest thing I've learned: that I don't matter."
"Nothing matters. It's such a relief to know that. I didn't get that job - it doesn't f—ing matter. Whatever I achieve, or don't, will be forgotten, it's not important."
