It was the humiliating split heard around the world but in a new interview, Elizabeth Hurley made a surprising revelation about her famous ex, Hugh Grant.
The duo dated for 13 years, and their romance came to an end in 2000. The model and actress moved on with her life and had several high-profile romances, and one of them resulted in her becoming a mother.
Note that Grant is the godfather to Hurley’s teen son, Damien Hurley, whom she shares with the late businessman Steve Bing.
As for the iconic British actor, he is happily married and has five children. In an interview with PEOPLE, Hurley revealed that she speaks to Grant very often. She confessed that she had a conversation with her former partner earlier in the day.
The model explained that she often calls Grant for advice on her career. Hurley said: “The last time I spoke to Hugh would be this morning. I speak to him quite a lot.”
She added that she is fully aware that Grant is in a loving relationship. She claimed: “I was asking him his advice on a script I just received. I still go to him for advice on scripts, even though he’s very happily married with five children and I’m very happy in my own life, there’s still certain bits we crossover with very well. He’s still my go-to person.”
A few months ago, Grant sat down with PEOPLE magazine where he did his mea culpa and said that he was an “idiot” for cheating on Hurley.
He said at the time: “I didn’t try to say, ‘I’ve got this psychological problem.’ I just said, ‘I did it.'”
Grant revealed after the massive cheating scandal, he and Hurley bonded, and they became “like brother and sister.”
He went on to explain why they are able to have such a relationship as a tight-knit duo: “I think it’s partly because we went from zero to somewhere together, and we went through terrible years at the beginning when neither of us had any work, living in a tiny flat. It was quite bonding.”
Fans are thrilled that the pair has been able to remain good friends through the years. One thing is clear, Hurley is aging backward and she has become a powerful force on social media with her alluring bikini photos.
At age 55, she is just getting better like fine wine.
