Sienna Miller Talks About Experiencing 'Public Heartbreak' During Ex-Fiance Jude Law's Affair with His Nanny

Sienna Miller is opening up about the “public heartbreak” that she experienced after her then-fiance Jude Law‘s affair with his nanny became public.

The actor cheated on Sienna with his children’s nanny back in 2005 and it put her in the public eye in a way she had never experienced before. When the story went public, she was starring in the play As You Like It on London’s West End.

“That was one of the most challenging moments I hope I’ll ever have to experience,” Sienna said in a new interview with The Daily Beast. “Because with that level of public heartbreak, to have to get out of a bed let alone stand in front of 800 people every night, it’s just the last thing you want to do.”

“It was really hard,” she added. “And the other thing was, it was at the height of all that paparazzi madness, and in London where there was an epidemic of bad behavior. They knew where I would be every night.”

Sienna says that she blocked out the time period completely from her memory.

“There’s a whole six weeks of that experience that I don’t remember. I have no recollection of it. People who came to see me said we had dinner, and I don’t remember. I was in so much shock over it all. And I’d really just begun. I was only 23. But if you get through that, you feel like you can get through anything,” she said.

Sienna and Jude split after the scandal happened, but they reunited in 2009 and dated for another couple years. She looked back at the media attention she received from the scandal.

She said, “There were moments where it came close to making me really feel crazy, and it was incredibly aggressive. The way I managed it was to get really litigious, start suing. I secretly recorded paparazzi on a lighter that was a camera, and got a privacy act taken to a high court to get the law changed in England, which essentially means that if I’m anywhere or coming out of anywhere where I can expect privacy they’re not allowed to take my photo.”

“It was a long battle, and I think I was really paranoid,” she said. “There was so much noise that it was hard to think straight and focus on my work, which I always took very seriously. It ate everything else. I look back on it and wonder how I did get through it — but I did.”
