It takes a really special type of girlfriend to see past her boyfriend’s cheating (with a hooker!) and then remain friends, nay, BEST friends, forever. But that’s exactly what Elizabeth Hurley and Hugh Grant are, according to a new interview with Zest magazine.
Hurley says that she has several besties including her husband Arun Nayar, but qualifies them all. “My overall best friend is Hugh. My ‘current affairs’ best friend is Arun, because we speak to each other all day, every day. My sister Katie is my loyal best friend. But there is a part of my life neither Arun nor Katie understand; a career part and a different emotional level where Hugh is still my number one. We’ve been best friends for 24 years and that’s not nothing.”
She also says that Grant “virtually has a bedroom at our house” and that they are neighbors as well. She also says “He’s an excellent godfather to [Hurley’s 8-year-old] Damian. He’s a part of our family – we all go on holiday together and Arun and Hugh get on incredibly well. We’re all grown up, and if I wanted to be with Hugh, we would be together.” So watch out, Arun, if Liz’s eye starts to wander, you know where she’s heading. These two are still some of our favorite 90’s stars (and look at how hot they were back in the day – they’re hot now too, but back then they were one good looking pair) and we’re happy that they’re best pals. Maybe this is how Jude Law and Sienna Miller will end up, since we have no faith in their romance.
