Born 10 June 1965, in Hampshire, England, UK
Wanting to be a dancer, Elizabeth Hurley went to ballet boarding school at 12, but soon returned home. When it came time to go to college, Hurley won a scholarship to the London Studio Centre which taught courses for dance and theater.
Soon Hurley would wear the punk rock look with pink hair and a nose ring. But to get work, she had to change her image to one that was castable. After college, Hurley worked in the theater and made her screen debut in Aria (1987). Roles in Television, and a film Remando al viento (1987), which included a young actor named Hugh Grant soon, followed.
European films followed her appearance in the BBC serial "Christabel" (1988) (mini). Her film debut in a Hollywood movie was in the Wesley Snipes action drama Passenger 57 (1992). When Hugh Grant was picked up with Divine Brown, Hurley became headline news. Added to this was the fact that she was the model representing top cosmetics house Estee Lauder, and there was no place Hurley could go to get away from the press.
In 1994, Hurley and Hugh Grant set up Simian Films in partnership with Castle Rock Entertainment.
On 2 March 2007, Hurley married Indian businessman Arun Nayar in a secret service at Sudeley Castle, near Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
The wedding festivities continued in Mumbai, India where they joined a private celebration held at Juhu Beach before moving on to Jodhpur, India.
In Jodhpur, they held a private Hindu ceremony held at Umaid Bhawan Palace, where she wore couture sari made especially by her designer friend Donatella Versace.
On the eve of the Hindu marriage, the couple held a sangeet, a traditional night of music, at the Nagaur Fort, 90 miles outside the city, where Hurley had her hands and feet decorated with intricate henna designs. Hurley performed the sangeet with close friends Trinny Woodall and Janet Street-Porter. The ceremony followed by private candle-lit reception on March 8 at Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur.
