Is Sienna Miller Engaged?

Dan Kitwood/Getty Images(LONDON) -- Reportedly pregnant actress Sienna Miller was photographed sporting a sparkling vintage rock on the ring finger of her left hand while leaving London’s Groucho Club Friday night, Life & Style reported, prompting speculation that she is now engaged to boyfriend Tom Sturridge.

Miller, 30, has not confirmed or officially announced that she is engaged to Sturridge, 26, whom she has been dating for a year. Her rep could not immediately be reached for comment.

She and Sturridge are expecting their first child, Us Weekly first reported in January. Miller’s sister Savannah Miller tweeted last month that she was “THRILLED,” which many have interpreted as a nod to Sienna Miller’s big pregnancy news.

The stylish actress is known for her trendsetting fashion choices and for her on-again, off-again public relationship with actor Jude Law. The pair got engaged in December 2004, split for the first time in 2006 following his infidelity with the nanny of one of his children, reunited in 2009, and dated for two years. They split again, seemingly for good, in February 2011.

Miller began dating Sturridge soon after she and Law parted ways.

Life & Style
magazine reported that the couple got engaged last month, citing an unnamed source who also said that Sturridge proposed on a trip to Paris over Christmas.

Sienna Miller and JK Rowling Testify at Ethics Inquiry

Dan Kitwood/Getty Images(LONDON) -- Harry Potter author JK Rowling and actress Sienna Miller told harrowing stories Thursday of being harassed by aggressive celebrity reporters, including leaving a note in Rowling's 5-year-old's book bag or being spit at by photographers to get a shot of Miller's reaction.

The women testified before a British inquiry how they felt threatened by tabloid reporters and photographers in their efforts to get scoops.

Rowling said that tabloid media crews camped in front of her home for weeks at a time, waiting for pictures of the author and her children.

"It's hard to explain how it feels to someone who has not experienced it. It's incredibly threatening," she said.

The unrelenting attention makes her feel helpless at times to stop it.

"Clearly I can't put the invisibility cloak over myself or my house nor would I want to. I just want to have some privacy," she said.

At one point the Harry Potter creator said a journalist went so far as to slip a note into her 5-year-old daughter's book bag while she was away at school.

"I felt such a sense of invasion....it's very difficult to say how angry I felt that my 5-year-old daughter's school was not a complete place of security," she said.

Rowling has fought to keep her children out of the public spotlight. She has sued and won several cases to keep photographs of her children from being published.

"We're not looking for special treatment. We're looking for normal treatment," Rowling said.

Prime Minister David Cameron called for the inquiry into media ethics because of the widespread cell phone hacking scandal involving the Rupert Murdoch-owned News Of The World tabloid newspaper. The newspaper has admitted eavesdropping on celebrities, politicians and crime victims in search of scoops.

News of the World shut down earlier this year because of the scandal and Murdoch's son James resigned this week from his seat on the boards of several British newspapers. Earlier in the day, actress Sienna Miller told the panel that years of being chased, harassed, and spied on by tabloids and paparazzi left her "scared, paranoid and anxious."

Miller was one of the first celebrities to take The News Of The World to court over phone hacking. The newspaper agreed to a $160,000 settlement in May.

Miller, 29, testified that for years she was followed every day by 10 to 15 men, all members of the paparazzi who spat at and verbally abused her to get the reaction and the photo they wanted.

The star became tabloid fodder when she began dating fellow actor Jude Law. Miller said she was baffled to see details of her personal life constantly appearing in The News Of The World. She said reporters would appear out of nowhere, anticipating her every move.
