Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley Play Backgammon During Break Time

On June 18, 2007, Hollywood actresses Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley have swapped going into showbiz gatherings for playing backgammon.

The 2 actresses, who are currently filming The Edge of Love in Wales, have been avoiding going on nights out on the town during their breaks in favor of participating in backgammon events.

A source said that Ms. Miller is a big fan of board games and she has encouraged Ms. Knightley to play the game as well. Both actresses think that it is funny because a lot of people generally assume that they will grab every opportunity to be out on the town every night but instead they are spending their time playing backgammon together, like old men.

Sienna Miller said that she would rather play backgammon than go to a celebrity party. 25 year-old Sienna Miller and 22 year-old Keira Knightly have become close friends since they were cast in the movie about Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas.

Keira's mother, Sharman Macdonald, wrote the script for the movie. Keira and Sienna will share a scene with Matthew Rhys, who plays Dylan Thomas in the movie. Sienna recently commented on her developing relationship with Keira Knightley, stating that she has found a new friend for life.
