Elizabeth Hurley, also known as Liz Hurley, is a British model and actress. She has always been in the limelight, for both right and wrong reasons. One of the most desirable women in the world, Hurley is also one of the most photographed women. She had a colorful early life as she dabbled in ballet and punk fashion. She was also involved with the ‘New Age Travellers,’ a hippie group in Britain. She gained worldwide recognition when she walked down the red carpet with her then-partner Hugh Grant at the premiere of his film. Although Grant was more popular, Liz stole his thunder and grabbed all the attention with her bold ‘Versace’ dress, which was held together by giant gold safety pins. Hurley capitalized on her sudden fame and went on to establish a very successful modeling career. Though she has achieved only moderate success as a film actor, her modeling career as well as her well-publicized personal life has kept her in the limelight. In her turbulent personal life, Liz has had to put up with cheating partners, break-ups, outspoken in-laws, and paternity suits. In spite of her difficult personal life, Liz has managed to emerge unscathed and continues to enjoy fame and attention.
