Watch: Elizabeth Hurley is 'good friends' with ex Hugh Grant
The Gossip Girl star started dating Grant in 1987, and they stayed together after the actor admitted to cheating with sex worker Divine Brown in 1995.
They went their separate ways in 2000 after dating for 13 years, but Hurley said on the People In The 90s podcast that they are still very close.
“I’m still extremely good friends with Hugh. You know, we went through so much together,” she said of her former flame, who is her son Damian’s godfather.
“But I've been thinking, one of the most important things to keep good relations with your exes is to have a lot of respect for their current life.
"We haven't been romantically involved for 20 years, I don’t think, even though we have such a strong friendship.
“But we're always very aware that there are other people in our lives. There's partners, there's children.
"You can't just, sort of live in a lovely, rosy mist of the past. You have to move with the times and be very respectful of the present, which we are."
Love Actually star Grant married wife Anna Eberstein in 2018 and they have three children together.
The actor also has two children from his former relationship with Tinglan Hong.
Hurley has Damian, 18, with her ex Steve Bing.
The businessman took his own life last year.
