Liz Hurley: Hugh's good in the sack

Elizabeth Hurley’s relationship with Hugh Grant ended because he was too grumpy.

The 49-year-old actress dated the 54-year-old Brit for 13 years, splitting amicably in the year 2000. The pair have remained the best of friends, with Hugh even godfather to Liz’s son Damian.

Despite their closeness, Elizabeth was happy to open up about their relationship on US TV show Watch What Happens Live.

“Well, he remains my best friend to this day… But I say this: He used to really annoy me. I love him, but he’s very annoying. Didn't he annoy you when he was here?” she asked show host Andy Cohen, who then quizzed her on Hugh’s bedroom ability.

“Oh really, a ten! I was with him for 13 years!"

The actress called her ex “grumpy”, admitting it was something her pals picked up on when they were an item.

“My friends used to call him Rumpelstiltskin," she laughed, referring to the cranky fairy tale character.

Hugh appeared on the same TV show last month and also opened up about the relationship, saying the “sex bit fizzled out”. However, he added that their friendship has only grown over the years and now she is the first person he calls when he is in trouble.

Elizabeth plays Queen Helena in new US show The Royals, about an imaginary British royal family. The part has spawned lots of questions about the real royals, with the star this time asked to play “s**g, marry, kill” with three of its famous men.

“I would marry Prince Charles, misbehave with Prince Harry,” she told Andy. “But I would have to kill Prince William!”
