Elizabeth Hurley and Hugh Grant are still “extremely good friends” 21 years on from their split.
SPEAKING to People magazine’s In the ’90s podcast, Elizabeth said their friendship was long standing and sincere.
“I’m still extremely good friends with Hugh. You know, we went through so much together. But I’ve been thinking, one of the most important things to keep good relations with your exes is to have a lot of respect for their current life,” she said.
“We haven’t been romantically involved for 20 years, I think, even though we have such a strong friendship. But we’re always very aware that there are other people in our lives. There’re partners, there’s children. You can’t just, sort of, live in a lovely, rosy, mist of the past. You have to move with the times and be very respectful of the present, which we are,” she added.
Hurley and Grant, 60, met in 1987 and dated for 13 years before they split in 2000. Hugh is godfather to Elizabeth’s son Damian.
“I still go to him for advice on scripts, even though he’s very happily married with five children and I’m very happy in my own life, there’s still certain bits we crossover with very well,” Elizabeth said in 2020.
