Sienna Miller settles phone hacking claim against tabloid

Miller, who has appeared in films such as "Factory Girl," Black Mass and "The Lost City of Z," is now part of a long list of individuals who received payments from News Group Newspapers for illegal eavesdropping that occurred more than a decade ago.

News Group Newspapers has paid millions to settle hacker victims' lawsuits. The majority of the cases involve the defunct News of the World. It was closed down in 2011 by Rupert Murdoch after it emerged that employees of News Group Newspapers had listened to the voicemails of celebrities, politicians, and victims of crime in order to find scoops.

News Group Newspapers has admitted hacking by the News of the World but not by The Sun which continues to operate.

Miller, 39, stated that she felt "fully vindicated" when the publisher agreed to compensate her undisclosed "substantial damage" without admitting any liability.

Miller stated that Miller and the management of the newspaper had "very nearly destroyed my life." They have certainly ruined lives for others, I'm sure.

Miller said that Miller was a British tabloid fixture in her early 2000s relationship with Jude Law.

David Sherborne Miller's lawyer stated that the payment was "tantamount of an admission of liability by The Sun."

He said that "In particular, The Sun published many intrusive stories regarding her that contained intimate details about her relationships and emotions as well as her confidential medical information."

Miller, the former editor of The Sun Rebekah Brooks and others were accused of leaking information about her pregnancy. This leak had "leached her to being incapable of trusting those closest to her when they really needed her."

Brooks was acquitted of phone hacking in 2014.

Other claimants against the publisher include former soccer star Paul Gascoigne and Sean Bean, actor, and Sharleen Spiteri (lead singer of Texas).
