Jude Law appeared in court on Monday, Jan. 27 to testify in a case he has against the now defunct News of the World publication and several of its editors. According to E! Online on Jan. 27, it was the first time the actor spoke about the affair between his girlfriend at the time, Sienna Miller, and James Bond actor, Daniel Craig.
The case is being heard at the Old Bailey in London where Law was asked to testify about aspects of his private life involving Miller and how he handled news of her affair with Craig. One of the defendant’s attorneys asked the 44-year-old actor if he was aware of the alleged affair that took place in September 2005. He replied, "Yes…indeed I was."
Law was then asked about a call he made to Craig, confronting the Bond actor about the tryst. The attorney wanted Law to admit he had asked Craig to tell Law’s girlfriend at the time, Satsuki Mitchell, about the affair. Law responded to the question with, "We had known each other many, many years, so the conversation took on all sorts of turns."
Both Miller and Craig have remained mum on the subject. They worked together in 2004’s Layer Cake.
Law also apparently learned who was behind the leak of information to the press while in court. The prosecution asked him if he would tell the court when he first learned who the source of the information given to News of the World for money was. He answered, “Today.”
The lawyer then wrote a name on a piece of paper and passed to Law who looked at it somberly. The person’s name was never spoken in court.
The trial has been underway since October and is expected to last until May.
