Sienna Miller Discounts Her Affair with “Very Brief” Older Lover, Daniel Craig

Sienna Miller And Sugar Daddy Daniel CraigSienna Miller, 32, allegedly cheated on her fiancé, Jude Law, with her much older co-star, 45-year-old Daniel Craig. Even after her rela­tion­ship with Law fell apart, the actress never spoke pub­licly about the alleged affair—until now.

Law and Miller were both forced to tes­tify in court against the now-defunct news­pa­per, News of the World, who are accused of phone hack­ing. A reporter admit­ted that he had hacked into Craig’s voice­mail, uncov­er­ing a mes­sage from Miller in which she says she can’t talk because she’s with Law, but signs off by say­ing “I love you.” Law said in court that after hear­ing the news of their affair, he called Craig directly to dis­cuss it, which ended in a heated exchange of words.

Miller was also asked to take the stand to dis­cuss her alleged affair with Craig. Although she admit­ted to pos­si­bly leav­ing the mes­sage in ques­tion, she jus­ti­fied it by say­ing that it was mis­con­strued as being a “dec­la­ra­tion of love.” Miller main­tained that she and Craig were best friends and that she always ended her calls to him by say­ing she loved him. “It’s a dec­la­ra­tion of friend­ship,” said Miller. “It’s how I end all my calls to friends.”

How­ever, when asked if she was, in fact, in a rela­tion­ship with Craig while she was still with Law, Miller said that it was “not a rela­tion­ship,” but that it was a “very brief encounter.” It’s unclear if she meant that the “brief encounter” was the point at which their friend­ship turned into some­thing more.

Inter­est­ingly, Miller may not have been the only woman that Craig was hav­ing an affair with. The reporter who inter­cepted Miller’s voice­mail also found a mes­sage from Craig to model Kate Moss in which he said, “I love you, I love you, I love you.” Per­haps they were just close friends, too?

What do you think: Would you be OK with your older man telling his female friends that he loved them, or would it make you suspicious?
