Sassy Sienna Miller makes a Broadway debut

Sienna Miller

NEW YORK – It certainly sounds juicy: A British starlet makes her Broadway debut opposite her ex-fiance's best friend in a play about a doomed love triangle. Making it even spicier? Her ex-fiance happens to be just two blocks away in his own play.
Too delicious, right? But Sienna Miller will have none of it. Yes, Jude Law is playing the lead in "Hamlet" at the same time that she's in "After Miss Julie" with Law's best friend, but so what?
She says there's no bad blood between her and the man with whom she was engaged until 2006 when he cheated on her during a fling with the nanny of his three children.
"People want to make a big thing that it's weird — it's not," the 27-year-old actress says. "For me, people would love to make a whole meal out of it, but I've seen 'Hamlet' twice now and there's no weirdness for me personally that he's there and I'm here."

UPDATE: Was Michael Muslim as the Internet rumor mill claims? Michael Jackson allegedly become a Muslim in November 2008 and changed his name to Mikaeel. If that is so, will it affect his funeral?

It does appear Michael converted to Islam in November of 2008. The singer, who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, converted to Islam in a ceremony at a friend's house in Los Angeles. He is said to have sat on the floor and worn a small hat while an imam officiated.

According to The Sun, the ceremony took place while Jackson, 50, was recording an album at the home of Steve Porcaro, a keyboard player who composed music on his Thriller album. The former Jackson 5 star was counselled by David Wharnsby, a Canadian songwriter, and Phillip Bubal, a producer, who have both converted.
