LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Elizabeth Hurley may be 46, but she’s turning heads alongside Blake Lively and Leighton Meester on “Gossip Girl,” and she explained one of the big secrets to looking good as she inches toward 50.
“[When I was younger], I could look pretty good on three hours sleep,” Liz told UK magazine Zest, per The Daily Mail. “Now, I look like a lunatic if I don’t get at least double that. In my 20s I used to be able to exist on coffee, cigarettes and crisps, but again, a couple of days of that now and I’d look and feel really scary!”
Beyond getting her beauty sleep, Liz, who has a swimsuit line, which she herself models, admitted it isn’t hard to keep up the motivation to work out, especially in the winter.
“I put myself under pressure to remain slim because I still model my own bikinis but it is much more difficult to feel motivated in the gloomy winter,” she said. “I wrap myself up and try to walk every day with my dogs and sometimes force myself to run a bit — but I hate it. I love Pilates and yoga but, again, am more likely to do them in the spring and summer.”
And Liz’s new love, Australian cricket star Shane Warne, helps out too.
“He’s naturally very athletic because he’s been a professional sportsman for over 20 years. He keeps threatening to make me run with him, but I’ve resisted so far,” she added.
