Liz Hurley Facing Set For Uneasy Future In Hollywood
Elizabeth Hurley is facing the possibility of a very lonely movie career if she is thrown out of America's Screen Actors Guild (SAG).
The British Austin Powers star has angered the actors' union after appearing in an advertisement for Estee Lauder while the union was undergoing well-publicized strikes against the
commercial industry over their pay structure.
Reports are now suggesting Hurley will become the first person
ever to be kicked out of the massive union for not supporting its
action; a move which could have major consequences on her future
Hurley's excuse for the upset was that she had no idea the
strikes were taking place.
Spokesperson for SAG, Greg Krizman says, "If anyone was banned
then SAG members would more than likely not talk to them, they
would be ignored.
"The major studios only hire SAG employees so it could be highly
embarrassing for the individual. As far as whether the studio
executives would talk to the individual then that would have to be
"Miss Hurley will be going to trial after the strike has
finished. No one has ever been expelled for this reason before."
The move has become an embarrassment for Hurley; especially
considering most of Hollywood is now jumping on the strike
bandwagon by donating large amounts of money to support the
striking actors. – Melanie Bromley (Wenn, Los Angeles).
