British actress Elizabeth Hurley

London - Elizabeth Hurley won’t let her son watch her new TV show.

The 49-year-old actress portrays British monarch Queen Helena in forthcoming E! show The Royals, and though she happily takes 12-year-old Damian to the set of the drama, she says it is too “sexy” for him to tune in.

She said: “This is an extreme, sexy adventure into royalty. It’s quite out there. For me this is like sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll at Windsor Castle. I don’t want him to read the scripts and I certainly don’t want him to watch it.”

While Hurley plays the queen in the show, she insists she is very different from the real British monarch, Queen Elizabeth.

She added in an interview on Today: “There’s little resemblance to Her Majesty Elizabeth II, queen of England. But you never know. The beauty of this show is that we go behind closed doors.” - BANG Showbiz
