Grant Says He Was \'Too Dull\' for Liz
An angry Elizabeth Hurley defended former beau Hugh Grant’s sex drive back in May, when Jane magazine rag misquoted her as saying he was "less than adequate" in bed. But the Notting Hill star isn't doing much to promote his own libido by telling a foreign mag that he was just too dreary for sultry Hurley.
"Basically my life is so boring, it's embarrassing. I would love to be a jet-setter, flying off to parties in New York and Monte Carlo. Obviously I was simply too dull for Liz," the floppy-haired Brit actor reportedly tells German publication Hِr Zu in its Thursday edition.
However, back in August, Grant and Hurley were photographed nuzzling on a swank yacht in the Mediterranean, spawning a wave of speculation that the two, who split in May after 13 years together, had reunited.
Grant, who won fame for his roles in the movies Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, reportedly said he does not plan to act forever. "Believe me when I say I have no ambition to have my face in front of the camera when I'm 50 or 60," he noted in the interview. "I hope to do something better with my life someday."
Grant was horrified when he was asked if all his friends were also actors. "Good God, no," he sputtered to Hِr Zu. "Actors only ever think about their faces or why their agents won't answer the telephone."
Grant, who met Liz on the set of a low-budget movie, could be taking a jab at his spokesmodel ex, who just inked a multimillion-dollar deal with cosmetics giant Estée Lauder to keep looking purdy.
The former lovebirds were Brit tabloid darlings for much of the '90s. Grant became a bigger paparazzi target in 1995, when he was arrested during an encounter with a Los Angeles prostitute. Hurley made headlines for remaining at his side. – Albawaba.com.
