British-American actress Sienna Miller has revealed one major thing Chadwick Boseman did to her.
Sienna Miller got the pay she deserved, thanks to Chadwick Boseman.
The pair worked together in the action-thriller movie 21 Bridges.
According to the blonde beauty, she gave a rough amount of how much she wants to get.
But then the studio wasn’t keen on giving it to her.
Chadwick Boseman, who’s a producer of the movie, made sure Miller would want to take a role. So the Black Panther star fought for her.
But the movie executives did not have it.
Instead, Boseman bridge the salary gap by taking money out of his salary. Boseman wasn’t happy with the disparity between their paychecks, so the Marvel star decided to top it up himself.
She told Empire, “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.”
Boseman approached Miller to work on 21 Bridges despite the actress’s non-stop work that year. However, she really wanted to work with the actor.
The 38-year-old continued, “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.”
Boseman, who was vocal to his co-star that he was a fan of her work, astounded Miller with his unexpected action.
The Casanova star further revealed that it was “unfathomable” that an actor such as Chadwick Boseman would behave so graciously and respectful.
Speaking of the Avengers actor’s offer, Miller revealed that there was no hint of “show off” or obnoxiousness.
Instead, he simply told her, “‘Of course, I’ll get you that number.'”

Earlier today, concept artist @Nikkolas_Smith was among the first to see his artwork, “King Chad,” displayed in #DowntownDisney. The art installation pays tribute to ‘Black Panther’ star Chadwick Boseman with the inscription: “As a former Disney Imagineer, I had the honor of working on a major children's hospital initiative and Avengers Campus as my final two assignments. Seeing Chadwick's heart for people in-person, and later discovering his courageous battle with cancer, I was inspired to create this tribute to honor his life and legacy. To us, he was and will always be T'Challa. Long Live The King.”
