Elizabeth Hurley is emphatically denying a report that she had an affair with Bill Clinton while he was U.S. President and she was dating Hugh Grant.
The 48-year-old actress implied to her Twitter followers that she was considering legal action over the spurious reports originally made by Radar Online.
“Ludicrously silly stories about me & Bill Clinton,” she wrote.
“Totally untrue. In the hands of my lawyers. Yawn.”
The celebrity gossip site, in reporting the story, cited audio footage from Hurley’s rumored ex-lover, Black Hawk Down star Tom Sizemore, talking about it.
Not only did Sizemore discuss in detail how Elizabeth Hurley and Bill Clinton had a love affair, he says he set the two of them up back in 1998.
Sizemore also alleged that he personally enjoyed a three-year affair with Liz Hurley while she was engaged to Hugh Grant in the early 1990s.
Hurley, who recently split from Australian ex-cricket player Shane Warne, has previously admitted to having an attraction to powerful politicians.
The Daily Express quoted the beauty on the topic.
“Powerful folk can be sexy. I adore Clinton,” she said in 2010. “You know, naughty but nice with a very sexy voice. John Major was terribly dry and funny.”
“I love David Cameron. I’ve had lunch with David and Samantha a few times and found them both extremely charming. I think he’s gorgeous. Super-sexy!”
“He’s very hands-on with his kids, very charismatic.”
Doesn’t mean she was literally hands on with Bubba, though. Not for lack of interest on his part, we’re sure … but Tom Sizemore as a credible source?
That guy’s more out of it than Justin Bieber these days.
