Jude Law is currently in the middle of a heated court battle against two editors of the now-defunct U.K. newspaper, News of the World, for phone hacking. As part of the case, the 41-year-old actor was forced to open up about the heartbreaking affair that his ex-fiancée, 32-year-old actress Sienna Miller, had with the older James Bond actor, Daniel Craig, 45, back in 2005. The affair was exposed after Craig’s voicemail was hacked, uncovering a message from Miller saying, “Hi, it’s me. Cannot speak, I’m at the Groucho with Jude. I love you.”
The newspaper decided to run with the story of an alleged affair between Miller and Craig, making it appear like the voicemail audio was supplied by an anonymous source. The reporter who found the voicemail told the court that he confronted Craig about his affair with Miller, but the actor denied it.
However, Law revealed in his testimony that after he found out that his fiancée was supposedly having an affair with Craig, who was one of his close friends, he confronted him and the two actors had a heated conversation over the phone. Law also reportedly tried to convince Craig to fess up about the affair to his then-girlfriend, producer Satsuki Mitchell. Interestingly, news of Miller and Craig’s affair came around the same time that Law admitted to having an affair of his own with his kids’ nanny.
In 2006, Miller and Law announced that they were ending their relationship. Miller has since gone on to marry actor Tom Sturridge. Meanwhile, Craig and his girlfriend broke up in 2010, after which the actor quickly started dating actress Rachel Weisz; the celebrity couple married in June 2011.
What do you think: Who’s the hotter celebrity sugar daddy, Daniel Craig or Jude Law?
