Sienna Miller went through a horrible bird attack during the shooting of her new flick 'The Girl,' where she portrays Alfred Hitchcock's actress Tippi Hedren.

In the movie, Miller explores behind the scenes of Hitchcock’s 1963 horror film ‘The Birds.’  The British beauty said that in order to get into character, she had birds thrown at her which was not a “not very nice” experience.

“I did go through a bird attack - but for two hours, which pales in comparison to what [Tippi] was subjected to,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling The Sunday Times Culture magazine.

“But it was pretty horrible - we enacted the whole thing. There were people throwing seagulls and pigeons in my face, and, while I’m not terrified of birds, I don’t exactly adore them,” she said.

“There’s something about that flapping in the face, the claws and beaks and things, which isn’t ... very nice,” she added.
