Actress Sienna Miller,  39, said on Thursday that the British newspaper The Sun nearly ruined her life after she spoke about a lawsuit with their publisher.

The Hollywood star has filed a lawsuit against News Group Newspapers (NGN) for allegedly intercepting voicemail and misusing private information in September 2019.

The Sun, part of Rupert Murdoch’s Empire Corp empire, denied illegal information gathering and agreed to settle for ‘substantial damages’ without admitting liability. Her case appeared in the High Court in London. About 15 public figures also filed lawsuits against NGN for hacking phones.

In court, her lawyer said the actress faced ‘intense media scrutiny and a serious intrusion into her private life’ which affected not only her but also her family and friends.

“The Sun specifically published a number of intrusive stories about her that contained private details about her relationships and feelings, and even her confidential medical records,” attorney David Sherbourne said, adding that this included revealing details about the actress ’pregnancy.

“She felt at the time, and still feels, that The Sun had brutally taken away her choice,” Sherbourne said, adding that Sienna ‘can never forgive them for what they did.

Outside of court, Miller said she wants the case to go to a full trial ‘to expose NGN crime’, but high costs prevented her from doing that.

– They almost ruined my life. I must have seen how they ruined the lives of others – said the actress.

Their behavior broke me, damaged my reputation – sometimes irreparably – and made me accuse my family and friends of selling information that catapulted me into a state of intense paranoia and fear – adds the actress.

Rupert Murdoch, 90, shut down the News of the World in 2011 after it was revealed that the newspaper had hired a private investigator to hack the voicemail of a missing girl who was later found dead. This led to a wider police investigation into illegal methods of gathering news from the tabloids, for which several journalists were tried.

Last week, Meghan Markle,  39, called for tabloid culture reform after winning her second lawsuit against Britain’s Associated Newspapers for privacy breach. She said the industry ‘conditions people to be cruel and profits from the lies and pain they create’.
