The weekly Steelers' News & Notes for gameday (Sunday, 8:15 pm, against the Chargers) means that another weekend is upon us. And I am especially excited because, thanks to JetBlue realizing (unlike UsAirways) that consumers don't want to spend $263 for a one hour plane ride, I get to spend the next three days at home in Pittsburgh!
I was feeling all fuzzy and relaxed until The Mad Hungarian just incited me into a rage by forwarding this news item about Sienna Miller slamming the Steel City, where she is currently shooting The Mysteries of Pittsburgh with Peter Saarsgard.
In a nutshell:
"The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that citizens are boycotting actress Sienna Miller for failing to recognize Pittsburgh as the Pennsylvanian nirvana that it obviously is. As we reported yesterday, in an interview in this month’s Rolling Stone, the actress – who’s in town filming the movie The Mysteries of Pittsburgh – has taken to calling the city 'Sh-tsburgh.'
'Can you believe this is my life?' she complained to Rolling Stone’s Jenny Eliscu, over a plate of garlic-parmesan Buffalo wings at a Pittsburgh hotel bar. 'Will you pity me when you're back in your funky New York apartment and I'm still in Pittsburgh? I need to get more glamorous films.'"
The article goes on to say that, after hearing of Miller's comments, 41% of Pittsburghers say they have no desire to see the movie. This should be a reassuringly familiar scenerio to the actress, whose movies to this point (hello? Alfie and Cassanova) have both sucked and blew.
This FoxNews story notes Pittsburghers' fierce loyalty to their town...a fact of which any reader of this blog is well aware. I guess that I can only say to Sienna: in order to get more glamorous films, you need to be a better actress, something that all evidence suggests will never happen. Oh, and take your skinny boho ass back to your nanny-fucking boyfriend in London...because if I see your blonde smirk this weekend, I'll smash your face into an ode bowl of Heinz ketchup and throw you into the crick.
Please, someone make a "Pittsburgh hates Sienna" t-shirt so I can buy one when I'm at home.
