SYDNEY (AFP) - Hollywood star Judy Davis was awarded 10,000 dollars (8,008 US) in interest Friday, swelling to 150,000 dollars a libel pay-out over an article she said depicted her as "heartless" towards children. An Australian judge awarded the double Oscar-winning actress the additional payment on damages of 140,000 dollars that she won in July against the Daily Telegraph newspaper. New South Wales Supreme Court judge Peter McClellan ordered the extra pay-out after the two sides failed to agree on the amount of interest she should receive, according to the Australian Associated Press. The judge also ordered the newspaper's publisher, Nationwide News, to pay Davis's legal costs assessed on an "indemnity basis," which is more favourable than the standard basis when all outlays may not be reimbursed. A jury found in May that Davis, 53, was defamed by the article and ruled that Nationwide News was actuated by malice in its publication. The judge made the award in July for the "inevitable" damage to her reputation that the article, published in February, caused. The case centred on stories about Davis' appearance at a community meeting about plans to floodlight a sports field near her home in Sydney. The star of films such as "A Passage to India" said in evidence that the accounts of her appearance at the meeting to discuss lighting to allow junior soccer teams to train at night portrayed her as a child-hater. Davis said she had asked the meeting to consider the danger that misfired soccer balls could pose to residents and suggested that a nearby park could be used as an alternative venue. The jury later found that the article implied she was "heartless" and "indifferent to the risk of injury to hundreds of young children." Davis won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Judy Garland in the 2001 television movie "Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows." She is best known for her roles in Woody Allen's "Husbands and Wives" and David Lean's "A Passage to India."
