Actress Sienna Miller was the latest high profile name to give evidence into the phone hacking scandal.
The 29-year-old spoke of how private information that she only told to four people was circulated in the national press.
At one point Ms Miller gathered those four people together and “accused someone in that room of selling a story.”
The actress said she felt terrible when it was apparent no one had leaked the stories.
“The effect that it had on my life was really damaging to me and to my family and friends,” she said.
The scale of the media intrusion she was subjected to left her in a state of “complete anxiety and paranoia”.
The star, who has appeared in films such as Layer Cake and Stardust, spoke of how over 10 reporters would chase her down the street to try to get “an emotional reaction.”
She questioned why that kind of behaviour was legal just because they had a camera.
Ms Miller settled for a fee of £100,000 earlier this year after the News of the World hacked her phones. She said she had to “fight tooth and nail, constantly” to gain her freedom from the press.
Ms Miller was there at the Royal Courts as part of Lord Justice Leveson’s inquiry into press intrusion.
The inquiry has already seen Hugh Grant, Steve Coogan and Milly Dowler’s parents give evidence.
Later today the inquiry will hear from Max Mosley and Harry Potter author JK Rowling as well as celebrity lawyer, Mark Thomson.
