Elizabeth Hurley, better known by the diminutive of Liz Hurley, is an English actress known in particular for her role in the two Austin Powers films. Aged 55, she is very active on Instagram where she recently posted photos that have made a lot of talk across the Channel. In these photos, Hugh Grant’s ex-girlfriend poses topless in the snow with a woolen coat over her shoulders with the caption “How could I resist?”. This photo obviously pleased her followers a lot as it was liked more than 276,000 times, a record for Liz Hurley on Instagram.
Piers Morgan goes after Liz Hurley
On his Good Morning Britain show, host Piers Morgan lashed out at the actress: “She looks fabulous, but what are you doing Liz? A little snow and you take your jumpsuit off?” He then described the actress as “thirsty and creepy”, meaning “thirsty (sexually) and frightening”. Liz Hurley was able to count on Suzanna Reid, co-host of the show: “Once they are over 50, women are no longer allowed to undress?”. Piers Morgan explained that his problem is that these photos were taken by Damian, Liz Hurley’s 19-year-old son: “And who took the photos? Your 19-year-old son, did you said? Isn’t that scary? “
Far be it for me to suggest the tabloids get their facts muddled, but these pics were in fact taken by my 80 year old mother. Not entirely sure if that puts minds at rest or not pic.twitter.com/yKwbAlfk9i

Liz Hurley’s mom took the picture
While she revealed in 2018 that her son took most of the photos she put on his Instagram, this time she defended herself on Twitter following this controversy by reposting the photos with this message: “Far from me the idea of saying that the tabloids are wrong on the facts, but these photos were taken by my mother of 80 years. Not sure that it calms the spirits so far “. Liz Hurley had indeed explained last year that her mother had come to live in her manor in Herefordshire to spend the confinement with her.
