FactIn 2000, the Screen Actors Guild went on a long strike against advertisers, demanding higher residual payments for actors appearing in commercials. Not only did Robbins and his colleagues demand that everyone punish Procter & Gamble workers with a boycott, they were highly interested in punishing any actor who crossed the picket line. When Elizabeth Hurley made an Estée Lauder ad, and then claimed she was unaware of the strike, Robbins was in a punitive mood, calling for Hurley to be punished, even banned from Hollywood. Hurley was eventually fined $100,000, not banned.

Elizabeth Jane Hurley was born on June 10, 1965, in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England. Her father, Roy Leonard Hurley, was a major in the British Army, and her mother, Angela Mary (née Titt), was a teacher at a local school. Elizabeth has an older sister, Jane, and a younger brother, Michael James Hurley. Elizabeth attended Harriet Costello School in Basingstoke, and then later attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

Elizabeth’s career began as a model, when she was discovered by an agent while walking through a London street. She has since appeared in numerous advertising campaigns and fashion shows, and has graced the covers of many magazines, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle. In 1994, Elizabeth made her film debut in the movie “Aria”.

1I keep getting these extraordinary letters, really weird ones from American sports stars - I've always thought you were one pretty lady and now that you're single I want to meet you for a drink.
2The only meal I have is dinner.
3The day of the press statement has gone.
4We all need to relax more, but I don't find it easy.
5When I started doing movies, every crew member was older than me.
6I love Pilates and yoga but don't do them regularly.
7I'm not that careful with cars.
8I was completely loyal and faithful to Stephen throughout this time as, indeed, he assured me he was to me.
9I'm very attracted to Indians.
10I've always been obsessed by beef jerky.
11I feel like a semi-single mum.
12I love moving. I love new houses. I'm always looking for somewhere else.
13I like people to match my energy.
14I have always been attracted to Australians and Australia.
15I don't know much about only children. I was the middle one of three, and if ever I was alone with mum and dad, it was a rare moment.
16I always found when I was reading an interview with an actor that I wasn't interested in their political opinions - I just wanted to know what they'd had for breakfast.
17I am a terrible mixture of being organized, controlling, but chaotic. My desk is monstrous.
18You know, you want to be a success. You want people to know who you are.
19I walk every day with my dogs and force myself to run a bit but I hate it.
20Divorce is, of course, difficult for a child. I didn't go through it as my parents stayed together, but I have a lot of friends who did.
21I don't want someone to watch sports in bed. That drives me nuts.
22In America uniformed cops eat in coffee shops, diners and restaurants and I always feel safer having them around.
23It took me six years to be comfortable modeling a swimsuit.
24It's definitely part of my job description not to be too fat.
25You know, I've virtually never been chatted up in my life, it's true.
26I'm pretty nice. I'm far from an ax murderer. I've never been mean to anyone in my life.
27Being English, I always laugh at anything to do with the lavatory or bottoms.
28I didn't have a cup of coffee until I was 27.
29I would seriously question whether anybody is really foolish enough to really say what they mean. Sometimes I think that civilization as we know it would kind of break down if we all were completely honest.
30I do like my life very much, yes.
31I'm manic about my schedule.
32Getting as much sleep as possible and following a healthy diet will stop you from feeling run-down if, like me, you're super-stressed.
33I always wear make-up as I've never seen the point of looking less than your best.
34I'm not going to launch a bikini business and then give up bikinis, am I?
35I've always wanted to be a spy, and frankly I'm a little surprised that British intelligence has never approached me.
36It's very hard to get the dynamics where two people can stimulate each other and be happy.
37I think, if you were being cruel to animals, then the thought of eating them would be horrific.
38Nothing irritates me more than chronic laziness in others. Mind you, it's only mental sloth I object to. Physical sloth can be heavenly.
39Spending time outdoors makes you feel great.
40I love to see other women in pink. It's good for every shade of skin and hair.
41[ on Charles, the Prince of Wales] I've always been a big fan. I've always thought he was the best -dressed man in the United Kingdom, possibly the world. His tailoring is amazing.
42I haven't been able to look at a chainsaw since Scarface (1983).
43I like to eat delicious food and laugh a lot. I can put up with most things in life, as long a someone is making me laugh.
44If Hugh and I split up, I would feel as if my brother had died.
45A bit of lusting after someone does wonders for you and is good for your skin. -- "Marie Claire" magazine, November 2000
46I'd kill myself if I was as fat as Marilyn Monroe.
