Elizabeth Hurley regards Hugh Grant as one of her family and says they have been best friends since the moment they met
Elizabeth Hurley considers Hugh Grant as "one of her family".
The 45-year-old beauty has remained "best friends" with the actor - whom she dated for 13 years until 2000 - and though they quarrel all the time, she loves nothing more than spending time with her former boyfriend.
She said: "Hugh and I met in 1987 on the set on a movie in Madrid and have been best friend ever since. I completely consider him one of my family and love spending time with him, even though we annoy each other at times.
"We rarely get through a day without fighting, but we always end up laughing."
The pair are so close the 50-year-old star is even godfather to Elizabeth's son Damian and has a close relationship to the nine-year-old boy.
The actress said: "Damian adores his godfather and Hugh is great with him."
And although Elizabeth - who is in the process of divorcing husband Arun Nayar - thinks the idea of her ever being romantically involved with the 'Notting Hill' star again is "preposterous" she imagines they could end up living like a married couple.
She said: "It makes us laugh as the idea is sort of preposterous. We've often said though, if all else fails, we'll end up living together again."
