No more sugar for Hurley

Comment on this story

London - Elizabeth Hurley no longer wants to be super skinny.

The 47-year-old actress and swimwear designer has relaxed her diet and fitness routine because she believes having more curves helps her look younger.

The mother-of-one told the March issue of Tatler Russia: “I keep my eye on what I eat all the time, because now that we're older we have to make a conscious decision if we want to stay relatively slim... But as you get older, it doesn't actually look that attractive to be super skinny.”

The former Gossip Girl star recently revealed she has given up sugary foods and reduced her coffee intake after over-indulging over the Christmas holidays.

In a series of Twitter posts earlier this month, she wrote: “My 2013 health kick starts. Yes! Long, fast walk with dogs and zero sugar or anything with white flour... And a bit less caffeine... And more vegetables.”

Meanwhile, the actress has revealed that marrying her fiance Shane Warne is her top priority this year, as soon as they find the time.

She said: “We'd love to get married, and it's top of our to-do list, but we just haven't. It's logistically quite difficult, because half the family are in Australia and half the family are here (in the UK).”

“We got engaged very early because we thought it was very important for the kids to know that there was serious intent behind it, and that we were really setting out to make our own family on a different level - of course Shane's kids still have their mother, and Damian still has Arun - but us getting married is really about the children and us.”

She also insisted that her son Damian, 11, is still the most important man in her life, saying: “Damian always comes first. Work comes second, attempting to be a nice friend to my friends and a nice fiancee to my fiance is third, and everything else is unmitigated chaos.” - Bang Showbiz
