Now 60 and the father of five children, the actor dated Elizabeth Hurley between 1987 and 2000

Actor Hugh Grant caused a stir on social media by making an informal Twitter invitation to actress Elizabeth Hurley, his ex-girlfriend, to star alongside him in the next film in the ‘Paddington’ franchise. The invitation was made by the 60-year-old star in response to a post by the actress in which she poses with jars of marmalades, the favorite food of Teddy Paddington. Grant played the villain of ‘The Adventures of Paddington 2’ (2017).

Grant’s girlfriend between 1987 and 2000, Hurley wrote in the photo caption with the jars in her hands: “The lockdown turns me into a crazy housewife: I already have 47 jars of marmalade under the stairs and I have another bag of oranges in front of me”. In his sympathetic response, the actor wrote: “Paddington 3”.

“It is beautiful to see these two still friends and so close,” wrote one person in response to the actor’s tweet. “The most perfect couple,” replied another. “I love that Hugh is still so supportive of her,” said a third. “Yes, she should be on ‘Paddington 3’ and you should be in love again,” someone else joked.

Grant has been married since 2018 to TV producer Anna Elisabet Eberstein, mother of three of his five children. The other two are from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Tinglan Hong. His relationship with Hurley ended in 2000, five years after he was arrested for hiring the services of a call girl in Los Angeles.

After the end of the relationship with Grant, Hurley had his son, Damien (18 years old), as a result of his courtship with businessman Steve Bing. Despite breaking up with Grant, Hurley has already given interviews extolling the friendship he maintained with his ex.

She talked about her ex in an interview with People magazine last year: “I talk to him a lot (…) I go after him to ask for advice on the scripts I receive. Although he is happily married and has five children and I have my own life, we still have some partnerships in which we get along very well ”.
