A former News of the World reporter admitted to a British court this week that he hacked into Daniel Craig's cell phone in 2005 to uncover an affair between the "James Bond" star and actress Sienna Miller.
As a witness for the prosecution in the trial against former News of the World editor Andy Coulson, Dan Evans described how he'd been pressured to provide front-page-worthy stories and went on to detail the recording he heard on Craig's phone.
"I heard a female voice saying 'Hi, it's me. Cannot speak, I'm at the Groucho with Jude,'" Evans told the court, according to the Press Association
. Miller reportedly ended the message with "I love you."

Evans also told the court that he played the voicemail for Coulson and was told to "cover his tracks" and make it seem as though the recording was delivered to the paper anonymously.
Jude Law, the actor who was engaged to Miller at the time of the alleged Craig affair, also appeared in court this week and claimed he got into a yelling match with Craig over the phone after the News of the World story came out, US Weekly reported
Coulson and six other former News of the World editors are on trial, accused of conspiring to hack into the phones of high-profile public figures or those close to them and also of making illegal payments to public officials. He has denied all charges.
According to the Press Association, Monday wasn't the first time Evans has been at the center of a legal proceeding. He has reportedly already admitted to conspiring to hack phones when he worked at the Sunday Mirror between February 2003 and January 2005, and again at the News of the World between April 2004 and June 2010.
