LONDON - English actress Elizabeth Hurley was visiting her hair stylist, Dimples Yuckington, who was recovering from a badly bruised ego at Our Lady of The English Muffins Hospital.
She was asked if the rumors of her and the Aussie cricketer were true. Hurley appeared taken a back as the questioner was a priest known as Father Fabian.
Hurley, who has been married to Arun "Mr. Tan" Nayar for three years, smiled and simply ignored the question. Father Fabian asked again. This time Elizabeth told the priest that yes the rumors were in fact true and that she has in fact been seen in and around London with an Australian cricket player whom she chose not to name.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: I made a phone call to David Frost and he revealed that the cricket player's name is Shane Warne.]
The Basingstoke, Hampshire native noted that her and Mr. Warne are merely involved in a platonic relationship. She added that he is one of her biggest movie fans and that she first became attracted to him when he informed her that he had seen her movie Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me a total of 19 times.
Shane also told Ms. Hurley that he had seen the sequel, Austin Powers: The Effen Spy Who Tried To Boink Me, a total of 18 times.
Hurley went on to say that she knew very little about the game of cricket and that Mr. Warne gladly volunteered to teach her. She said that they agreed to meet at Lady Godiva's House of Ribs Restaurant in Pimlico where they instantly became good friends.
The two have admitted that on occasion they privately play cricket in their underwear.
SIDENOTE: Elizabeth Hurley will soon be appearing in the sequel to Samson and Delilah entitled, Samson and Delilah: After The Hair Cutting Incident.
