Elizabeth Hurley’s age

Believe it or not Hurley is in her 50s!

She was born on June 10, 1965, in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England to her mother, Angela, who was a teacher, and father, Roy Leonard Hurley, an army major. Hurley initially wanted to be a ballet dancer and briefly studied dance and theater at the London Studio Centre.

After college, she began working in theater and made her big screen debut in the 1987 film Aria. In the ’90s she became a spokesmodel for Estée Lauder and has remained active with the company’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.

So what’s her secret to looking so young?

“You need to look after your skin. You need to look after your health. If you want to glow from the inside, you have to be healthy,” she explained during an appearance on Today. “You have to watch your diet. You have to watch your lifestyle. You have to get enough sleep.”

Hurley also spoke about how important it is to feel good on the inside.

“You have to try to stay positive. We all get terrible knocks in life, all of us,” she said. “Some people have terrible things they have to deal with. You see some people and they just manage to keep their attitude positive. They rise above stuff. Some people get angry. Sometimes I think to glow, you have to let go of a lot of stuff and move on. Be as nice as you can to everyone.”

Who is her husband?

Hurley’s most famous relationship was with fellow actor Hugh Grant, who she dated for 13 years. Hurley even stood by him amid his prostitution scandal in 1995, but the two split in 2000.

Two years later Hurley gave birth to her only child, Damien Charles. Businessman Steve Bing originally denied that he was Damien’s father until a paternity test proved otherwise. Hugh Grant is one of Damien’s godparents.

Hurley married Indian textile heir Arun Nayar in 2007, however, they divorced in 2011. The actress has not remarried.
