Elizabeth Hurley has received “substantial” damages and an apology from Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) over phone-hacking.
The 51-year-old actress’s lawyer said she had donated the sum to campaign group Hacked Off “to assist other victims of the press”.
The model is one of a number of celebrities to settle claims against MGN over the last two months.
She did not attend the brief hearing at London’s High Court on Wednesday.
In April Lord Jeffrey Archer and his wife Dame Mary Archer, football manager Kevin Keegan, actress Patsy Kensit, and singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor were among 44 people to settle claims against the newspaper group.
Some settlements are thought to exceed £300,000, which is more than record damages awarded to Sadie Frost in 2015.
It is believed that about 50 people are still pursuing claims against MGN.
Phone hacking was a technique used to listen to people’s mobile voicemail. Journalists were able to access private information and use it for stories.
