Sienna Miller's AS YOU LIKE IT co-star Helen McCrory is furious about the intense press attention the play endured, because it ruined the magic of starring on London's West End.

Despite enjoying the extra publicity from the media circus surrounding Jude Law and Miller's on/off engagement, McCrory insists the intense interest in the theatre became very infuriating.

She moans, "A big part of a stage actor's life is leaving quietly by the stage door and going to have an anonymous drink in a pub around the corner.

"That was totally ruined by the fact that there were a hundred paparazzi waiting outside after every show."
