Liz Hurley: I’m not one of the plastic people… I’ve just got great genes
LIZ HURLEY puts her age-defying looks down to good genes — not the surgeon’s knife.
The actress, who turns 53 next month, revealed she has never had any nips and tucks to turn back the clock — aside from a touch of Botox, that is.
‘Plastic surgery? I’d be too scared. Fillers? Forget about it,’ she exclaimed. ‘But I have had Botox for my forehead.’
And Hurley appears to be more body proud than ever, as she regularly shares revealing bikini pictures on social media — snaps, she assured, that don’t embarrass her 16-year-old son Damian, despite reports indicating otherwise.
‘That’s all fiction! My son is incredibly supportive of me and my beachwear business,’ she said.
‘I often show them to him before I post them because he’s youth, he knows what people like.’
The Royals star famously made headlines for that Versace safety pin dress she wore while accompanying ex Hugh Grant to the 1994 premiere of Four Weddings And A Funeral.
‘I’d never been to a premiere before. I didn’t have any designer clothes of my own,’ she recalled.
Hurley picked up the dress herself in a plastic bag and had ‘no full-length mirror let alone a steamer’. But don’t expect to see her slipping back into it any time soon.
‘I mean, 24 years on, you could end up feeling slightly depressed,’ she said
The mum-of-one, whose most recent ex-flame is Australian cricketer Shane Warne, hinted she is dating at the moment. But she’s keeping shtum about the mystery man’s identity. ‘I’ve made a vow, unless I’m engaged to somebody, I don’t talk about anybody, sorry,’ she said.
Asked about regrets, Hurley admitted she would have liked to have had more children.
She told Grazia magazine: ‘I was one of three, a big sister and a little brother to squabble with and to love. Damian doesn’t have that.’
