British actress Sienna Miller is relieved to be nearing the end of her worst year (05) - and has blasted the press for making the past few months so "tumultuous".

The Alfie beauty has been plagued by media intrusion after revelations in a British tabloid in July (05) that her fiance Jude Law had an affair with his children's nanny.

She says, "I wish (the tabloid coverage) wasn't in my life to the degree that it is or has been, but I accept that it has been a pretty tumultuous year and hopefully it will die down.

"I just think people must be sick of hearing about my private life! I'm not stupid enough to think that people won't be interested at all, but the attention has been relentless and, to be honest, I find the paparazzi a bit intimidating."
