Elizabeth Hurley is known for her roles in many movies. But she is best remembered for her part in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Bedazzled, Runaways, and Passenger 57, Elizabeth Hurley is an actress and model. Born on June 10, 1965, in Basingstoke, Hampshire, Hurley kicked started her acting career in the 80s.  

Since rising to fame in the 90s, Elizabeth has branched her career into many fields, including fashion and business. But for the 57-year-old actress, her biggest feat, as she explains, has been her motherhood journey, and remaining sane in an industry that is as adventurous as it is stressful.  

Inside Elizabeth Hurley's Romantic History!  

Elizabeth Hurley is a risk taker and what better way to prove it than her high-profile love life? Yet surprising dating history, which is anything but boring. Hurley's foremost boyfriend is actor Hugh Grant, whom she met on the sets of the Spanish film, Rowing with the Wind, in 1987.

Hurley and Grant's romance was no fleeting affair as it lasted almost thirteen years, during which the pair ostensibly grew their career, and became known as a power couple. The Passenger 57 stood by her then-beau when Grant landed himself in a scandal after getting caught with a sex worker in 1995.  

Hurley and Grant moved past the chaos and were together for five more years, before calling it quits in 2000. The long-estranged pair remain amicable to this day. After her long relationship with Hugh came to an end, the Bedazzled actress started dating film financier Steve Bing.

The duo's romance lasted only eighteen months but resulted in the birth of Hurley's only kid, Damian, born in 2002. Bing had initially denied paternity, but a DNA test proved that he was the father. Hurley's romantic history also includes an NBA player. The actress briefly dated Steve Nash in the 2000s.   

Despite her active dating career, the Runaways actress has been married only once. Elizabeth's nuptials with Indian textile heir Arun Nayar surprised many. The pair started dating in 2002 and tied the knot in 2007- only to announce their divorce after three years in 2010.

Hurley's other notable relationship was with cricket player Shane Warne, with whom she allegedly got involved while she was still married to Nayar. Hurley and Shane's whirlwind romance escalated with the two getting engaged in 2011 and calling it off in 2013.  

Hurley's long dating history also includes some unconfirmed romance rumors. Over the years, the actress has been linked with Denis Leary, billionaire Theodore Forstmann, and Justin Theroux.  

Who is Elizabeth Hurley Dating?  

At 57, Hurley is still as stunning and fit as ever. The actress, who often strikes sizzling poses while promoting her bikini line, Peaches Bikini, hasn't been dating anyone officially. In fact, Hurley's name has been almost obsolete from dating headlines.

The actress and model, however, isn't a stranger to a rumor or two. Hurley last denied the swirling dating rumors with actor Theroux. Calling the actor, who is ex-husband to actress Jennifer Aniston, "a nice chap," Elizabeth said they were only friends.  

When asked if she is lonely and in search of love, the mother of one said, "I'm really not. I'd rather be happy and single than miserable with someone."

The Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery star was linked with poet Henry Birtles last year. The pair set off the romance rumors after a picture of them rolling around the floor got viral, which followed the twosome spending time with each other on a few occasions. 

Although Hurley didn't address the speculations, Birtles said they were nothing more than friends. So, safe to say that Hurley isn't dating anyone, and is very much in the market.
