Sienna Miller has honoured Chadwick Boseman for donating part of his salary to cover her fee to work on their movie 21 Bridges.

In an interview with Empire, the American Sniper actor shared how Chadwick - who was also the producer of the movie - was the driving force behind her taking on the role in the 2019 film.

She further revealed that Chadwick went the extra mile when film bosses refused her wage request.

"Everybody understands about the pay disparity in Hollywood, but I asked for a number that the studio wouldn't get to. And Chadwick ended up donating some of his salary to get me to the number I had asked for," said Sienna.

The 38-year-old added that what Chadwick did was a rarity in the film industry.

"That kind of thing just doesn't happen. He said, 'You're getting paid what you deserve, and what you're worth.' It's just unfathomable to imagine another man in that town behaving that graciously or respectfully."

The Black Panther actor died in August at the age of 43 after a private four-year battle with colon cancer.
