'Factory' is seen as fully unionized

Sienna Miller and Hayden Christensen treat us to some utterly convincing lovemaking in their new movie, "Factory Girl." And it's no wonder: We hear the costars actually coupled on camera.

"It's not simulated," an insider tells us. "They're really doing it."

In the movie, Miller plays doomed Andy Warhol protégé Edie Sedgwick. Christensen plays a folk rocker modeled after Bob Dylan.

It was during the film's Louisiana shoot that Miller ran into another squall in her stormy romance with Jude Law - and turned for comfort to Christensen, the "Star Wars" heartthrob.

"They spent about a month hanging out," says one pal of Christensen. "But then she decided she didn't want a relationship. Hayden was devastated. He really fell for her."

Added a friend of Miller, "Sienna wanted to try to make another go of it with Jude. But, again, it didn't work out. At the end of last summer, she and Hayden ended up in Toronto for more shooting. They hadn't talked in six months. But it turned out to be a great reunion."

Apparently. When it came time to shoot the love scene, word is the former lovers dispensed with the flesh-colored socks and pads favored by actors on less familiar terms. And, once the cameras were rolling, the two 25-year-olds fell into old habits.

At the movie's premiere on Monday, director George Hickenlooper would tell us only: "Sienna and Hayden grew close during the filming. It was an emotional experience for all of us." As for the sex, he said, "We tried to portray it tastefully."

And was congress actually in session during the shooting?

"I can't comment," Hickenlooper answered. "You'll have to ask Sienna about it."

Miller left the Chelsea Hotel after-party before we could ask about the love scene - and where she now stands with Christensen, who wasn't at the premiere. Yesterday, Miller's publicist said the sex wasn't bona fide: "She's just a really good actress."

But now we're wondering if that "really good actress" forgot a little something Monday night. She'd changed out of the divine white party dress she wore on the red carpet at the premiere into what looked like support hose for the after-party. Even Sid Vicious, who supposedly haunts the Chelsea Hotel's elevator, would've been spooked.

As a result, Iraq has little if any on-the-street law enforcement personnel or a functioning judicial system free of corruption, they said.

Justice Department officials, they said, should lead the work of transforming the system. Police executives and supervisors should replace the military police personnel now assigned.

And the FBI should expand its investigative and forensic training in Iraq, Hamilton and Meese told the panel.

Thats the last thing my platoon needs. We got all these knuckleheads who yes may have some military back ground come in and clean up. Sure is going to change the thinking of the populace. The cops were real good in stopping riots in the 1960s. They live for that. Come over here with your batons and shields and tell that Sunni to stop atagonizing the shiites. And if you know the tactical logistics, of a war zone cops have at it. The M.P.s of the army have good training in these areas. And can mix with the people a lot better, than some snoopy agent antagonizing the situation, by busting these peoples balls. Then us troops got to come in and save your ass while , some wanna b fbi agent dusts the bombed out homes of streets for fingerprints. Its a war. There is no time to be going around trying to figure out what side killed who CSI style. It doesn't matter who did it. We all know whos behind it. We just have to sit around and play referee.
Sure we can use a hand, but to come in and start giving us soldiers orders. It'll be to many Chiefs in the Kitchen, calling the kettle black.
Sorry, just venting. I got some friends in my old platoon over there. And its like everyone is saying we mucked this up sometimes. We just do what were told and improvise, and its a War, turned into a fiasco. We should just come home. We should never had gotten involved in an old fight that wasn't ours. We should work out things a little more diplomatically, and honestly next time. If not, then we might as well Blitzkrieg the whole freaking desert. I mean we got two groups were trying to keep from killing eachother, and the Sunnis and Shiites are fragging my boys from both sides.
And whats so great that We now got to escalate the tension of the people we came to liberate in the first place. Kurds and Shiites, from the big bad Baath machine of Saddam. This is crazy, and the Iraq study group wants to send cops?

"Bad boys, Bad boys...whats ya gonna do? whats ya gonna do when they come for you?"lol keep your head down 4th infantry.

Shows where my priorities are, I thought the most important story was the potential Sienna Miller and Hayden Christensen fuck fest.

Hey, I just discovered a blog site that covers the Chicago Public Library. Is there anyone out there who wants to start a blog regarding the Seattle Public Library? There's lots of things to discuss: pro and con. Anyone?
