Sienna Miller broke down in tears yesterday after she was surrounded by a dozen paparazzi at a Los Angeles petrol station.
Despite being a photographers' magnet since her days dating Jude Law, the actress has been subjected to a frenzy of media attention in recent weeks since it emerged she was dating married father of four Balthazar Getty.
When she stopped to refuel her Lexus car in a Malibu garage on Monday, a tearful Sienna pleaded with the horde of paparazzi to 'leave me alone'.
When asked about Balthazar's wife by one paparazzo yesterday, a furious Sienna replied: 'Can you leave me alone, I'm trying to get gas and this is really harassment. Please leave me alone.
'Please I'm asking you. I can't live like this, please give me a little bit of respect.
'I'm just trying to f**king fill up my car.'
After managing to re-fuel her car, Sienna quickly popped inside the station to pay, before fleeing back to her car.
Covering her face, Sienna looked distraught and desperate to leave.
Despite her distress, she still made time to chastise a photographer after he whacked a child with his camera.
She shouted: 'You just f**king wacked a kid. Be careful.'
After getting into her car, Sienna drove to Beverly Hills police station, where she complained about the pursuing paparazzi.
Following her discussion with the cops, Sienna managed to secure a police escort to assist her to the Four Seasons Hotel.
The 26-year-old is currently in LA spending time with her new love, despite reports they had called off their high-profile affair.
After she was photographed laughing and smiling with the millionaire oil heir alfresco at Taverna Tony's on Sunday, paparazzi were hoping she would be more wiling to be snapped again on Monday.
But it seems The Edge Of Love star was in no mood to be photographed - or discuss her controversial relationship - as she got some petrol.
Over the weekend, U.S. reports claimed Sienna had asked Balthazar's estranged wife Rosetta to released a statement declaring her marriage was over long before the Alfie star arrived on the scene.
