  • Sienna Miller is opening up about the cheating scandal that left her blocking out an entire period of her life.
  • The actress, just 23 years old at the time, called off her wedding to Jude Law after the actor was revealed to have been cheating with his children's nanny.
  • "I was in so much shock over it all," the 21 Bridges star says in a new interview. "There's a whole six weeks of that experience that I don't remember."

Sienna Miller is opening up about the Jude Law cheating scandal that completely consumed her life when she was just 23 years old.

The actress, now 38 years old, met The Holiday star in 2003 on the set of their film Alfie. They got engaged shortly after, but once news broke that the actor cheated on his fiancé with his children's nanny, Daisy Wright, Sienna called their wedding off, reports People.

"It was really hard," the 21 Bridges actress recently told The Daily Beast, reflecting on that time in her life. "And the other thing was, it was at the height of all that paparazzi madness, and in London where there was an epidemic of bad behaviour. They knew where I would be every night."

She added: "That was one of the most challenging moments I hope I'll ever have to experience. Because with that level of public heartbreak, to have to get out of a bed let alone stand in front of 800 people every night, it's just the last thing you want to do."

She revealed: "There's a whole six weeks of that experience that I don't remember. I have no recollection of it. People who came to see me said we had dinner, and I don't remember.

"I was in so much shock over it all. And I'd really just begun. I was only 23. But if you get through that, you feel like you can get through anything."

The couple officially split in 2006 but rekindled their romance in 2009 before calling it quits, for good, in 2011.

Sienna went on to date, Balthazar Getty, who was married at the time, resulting in a highly publicised affair, before she started dating actor Tom Sturridge, with whom she shares eight-year-old Marlowe Ottoline Layng Sturridge.
