Actress Sienna Miller has told the inquiry into media ethics how she blamed friends and family when personal information appeared in the press. Lord Justice Leveson is hearing from alleged victims of press intrusion at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. Ms Miller formally settled for 100,000 in damages and costs earlier this year after the News of the World hacked into several of her mobile phones. Celebrity lawyer Mark Thomson is now giving evidence to the inquiry. Mr Thomson will be followed by ex-Formula 1 head Max Mosley and Harry Potter author JK Rowling. A witness known only as HJK earlier gave evidence, but the media and public were barred from the hearing as the witnesss identity is protected by a court order. Ms Miller has appeared in films including Alfie, Layer Cake and Stardust, and has been the subject of media attention for her relationships with partners such as actor Jude Law. The actress described to the inquiry incidents of media driving illegally while following her and said she had been pursued by 10 to 15 men on a daily basis who abused her and did anything to get an emotional reaction. She questioned why having a camera made it legal for people to chase her. I would often find myself - I was 21 - at midnight running down a dark street, she said. 'I accused someone Ms Miller said that when personal stories began appearing in the media in 2005 and 2006, she began questioning those close to her, previously having felt very protected. Im very lucky I have a very tight group of friends and a very supportive family, she said. Ms Miller said the medias intrusion had left her in a state of complete anxiety and paranoia. In one instance, the actress said she had gathered people in a room to question them after a story emerged based on something only four people knew about. I accused someone in that room of selling a story. Ms Miller told the inquiry that she had felt terrible when she realised no-one had betrayed her. She said it was unfathomable that someone could feel comfortable hacking phones. The effect that it had on my life was really damaging to me and to my family and friends, she said. Nobody could understand how this information was coming out, she said, it was impossible to lead any kind of normal life at that time and that was very difficult for a young girl. Ms Miller said it was very daunting to take action against News of the World, but decided that she had to after seeing evidence provided by the police. News International was richer and more powerful than I would ever be. Ms Miller discussed a photo that had been published in the Mirror and cropped to imply she had been drunk, when she had actually been playing with a sick child. She said its publication could have detrimentally impacted on her career. BBC
