Sienna Miller has said that she has "no recollection" of a six-week period after Jude Law cheated her in 2005.
In an interview with The Daily Beast, Miller recalled that she was starring in a West End production of Shakespeare's "As You Like It" at the time of the scandal.
"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," Miller said.
She and Law met while filming "Alfie" in 2004 and soon began dating before becoming engaged on Christmas Day in 2004. Law had three young children from his marriage with actress Sadie Frost, who he divorced in 2003, and it was later revealed that Law was cheating on Miller with the nanny of these children.
Law released statement confessing to the affair in July 2005, and apologized publicly to both Miller and their families. But Miller told The Daily Beast that she still cannot remember "a whole six weeks of that experience."
Miller said: "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."
Miller and Law remained together for over a year after the scandal broke, but split in November 2006. However, they did get back together for a while in 2009, and spent Christmas together in 2010, before breaking up permanently in 2011.
What made things even harder for Miller was the behaviour of the UK tabloids at that time, which she described as "paparazzi madness" and "an epidemic of bad behaviour."
Later, Miller was actually rewarded £100,000 in damages after The News of the World admitted to hacking her phone.
Of the press' behaviour at the time, Miller said: "There were moments where it came close to making me really feel crazy, and it was incredibly aggressive."
Miller told The Daily Beast that she was so "paranoid" during this time that it "was hard to think straight."
She said: "I look back on it and wonder how I did get through it—but I did."
