Sienna Miller has told the phone-hacking trial she has had some "negative experiences" while communicating with the media, and regretted that her private life has been analysed in public during the trial.

When asked if she had ever courted publicity by Timothy Langdale QC, defending former News of the World editor Andy Coulson in the trial, Ms Miller said: "Absolutely never, not once. Never ever. Hand on my heart, I've taken an oath."

The Layer Cake star said she once pleaded with a News of the World journalist to ease off her then-boyfriend Jude Law when they met at a pre-Baftas party, asking him to "give Jude a break". She added: "I appealed to his better nature and this was then abused."

Thanking her for giving evidence, judge Mr Justice Saunders told her: "I am very sorry what has gone on in this court and reported in the press has caused you distress. We have tried to limit what has been said in court."

Coulson is among seven defendants who deny conspiring to hack phones and conspiring to commit misconduct in a public office.

Sienna Miller plays down 'I love you' message to Craig

Actress Sienna Miller has confirmed at the phone-hacking trial that she left a voicemail message for James Bond star Daniel Craig ending "I love you," but said it has been misinterpreted.

The message was allegedly intercepted by the News of the World to source a story run by the Sunday tabloid that the two stars were having an affair at a time when she was with Jude Law.

The message said: "Hi. It's me. Can't speak. I'm at the Groucho with Jude. I love you."

But speaking via videolink from New Orleans in the US, Miller told the Old Bailey that her voicemail to Craig was not an "important declaration of love" and denied it meant she was in a relationship with the actor.

"The thing that's been slightly misconstrued about this voicemail message is the fact that I said I love you and that this was some incredibly important declaration of love," she told Court 12. "I've always ended my phone calls to Daniel saying 'I love you'."

Ms Miller, though, confirmed to the court that she and Craig had had a "brief encounter" and the story emerged "at a time when we had been briefly involved".

Jude Law: Phone hacking evidence 'didn't surprise me'

The actor Jude Law has started to give evidence at the trial of former News of the World editors Rebekah Brooks and Andrew Coulson into alleged phone hacking.

The jury has been taken through the years when it is alleged that Mr Law and Sienna Miller's phones were hacked.

Mr Law described his relationship to Sadie Frost, who he described as his wife for 10 years and the mother of three of his children.

He said Sienna Miller was "his friend" and had been his girlfriend "for about five years". But he told the court that the relationships "didn't overlap".

He said that he had never heard the name of Glenn Mulcaire - the private investigator who has admitted hacking phones - before the police showed him evidence relating to the allegations.

But he said "sadly it didn't surprise me ... because they were able to follow me not just in this country but abroad as well."
