London, Feb 12 : American born English actress Sienna Miller revealed in court that she felt "hunted" by paparazzi after last year's Bafta awards.
Miller was in court giving evidence at the trial of 25-year-old Otis Ferry, who was cleared on Monday 11Feb08, of criminal damage after he removed the keys from two photographers' cars on the night of the awards.
At the West London Magistrates' Court, Sienna narrated how at least five paparazzi followed her car after she left Boujis nightclub in west London on Feb 12 last year.
The reason she said the photographers were following her, is because they wanted to find out her new home.
"We were all quite shocked at the way they were driving," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
"The reason they were being that reckless is that they wanted to find out where I lived, which makes you feel quite hunted as a woman," she added.
"In any situation if you are a woman and you are running and there are men chasing you, it's a threatening situation," Miller described her fear as she ran to her car.
During the pursuit, Miller telephoned Ferry, of Cross Houses, Shrewsbury, to ask his brother to try to get between her car and the photographers so she could escape.
"[They were] really aggressive, driving really dangerously, undercutting, overtaking, flashing through the window at a moving vehicle," she said.
