Sienna Miller Gets Payback For Paparazzi Nuissance

SiennaSienna Miller has claimed 35,000 pounds in settlements from a couple of British publishers who admitted to breaching her privacy.

The actress sued the Sun and News of the World over a series of articles and photos that ran last summer that detailed her romantic life. The High Court declared in a preliminary hearing that paparazzi had made her life "intolerable." The newspapers then sent a letter admitting that Miller "had a reasonable expectation of privacy in respect of the information and the photographs that we published."

Miller still has an ongoing lawsuit against photography agency Big Pictures Limited.

Last week, Keanu Reeves successfully defended a lawsuit from a celebrity photographer who claimed being hit by the actor's car.
