Healthy Living: What are the turn offs in a man? What are the turn ons?

Elizabeth Hurley: I’m always attracted to people who are full of integrity and make me laugh. I’m very charmed by good manners and can’t abide boorish behaviour.

Healthy Living: You seem to be in such a good place in your life—do you ever feel depressed about things?

Elizabeth Hurley: I’ve had many knocks—personally and professionally—but I don’t give up that easily and enjoy getting up to fight another day. Challenges are good.

Healthy Living: What is missing in your life?

Elizabeth Hurley: I’d love a bee hive. I’ve always wanted to make my own honey. I’m dropping hints for Christmas.

Healthy Living: What do you do for exercise to keep your shape?

Elizabeth Hurley: I don’t do a lot of set exercise but I’m very active and run around all day. I enjoy Pilates, though I don’t do it often enough, but I have recently joined a gym for the first time in years and am hoping I can motivate myself to go…

Healthy Living: Do you diet?

Elizabeth Hurley: If my jeans feel tight I try to cut back a bit and if I stay home in the evening I’ll eat a very light dinner. I rarely skip breakfast and always eat lunch but the lighter my evening meal the better. I really try to go out of my way to eat an apple for a snack instead of a cookie and I always start the day with a couple of mugs of hot water. Otherwise I eat pretty normally but avoid processed and junk foods.

Healthy Living: What’s your most guilty indulgence?

Elizabeth Hurley: Sticking my finger in jars of peanut butter.

Healthy Living: Life has been exceedingly gracious to the current generation of actresses in their maturity—they don’t age as much anymore, staying not only young and beautiful, but highly active. Most attribute it to plastic surgery. What is your insight on it?

Elizabeth Hurley: None of my friends have had plastic surgery yet and nor have I-so I don’t really know much about it. Most of us are still (just) in our 40s though, so this may well be coming up in the next decade. I’ll let you know. Ha Ha.

Healthy Living: I am about to turn 30—can you tell me how to learn not to fear each approaching x0 number in life?

Elizabeth Hurley: There’s zero point in dreading anything inevitable and I never have. Much better to concentrate on what you can change. The kinder and nicer you are to yourself and those around you will make you glow from within—no matter what birthday you hit.

Healthy Living: Is the perception that only the rich and famous look young and beautiful in their 40s and 50s a misconception or the hard truth? What really makes women forever young and fabulous?

Elizabeth Hurley: Everyone ages and the same physical things happen to everyone regardless of your bank balance. However, everyone has the option of staying in shape, staying healthy, staying positive and looking after their teeth, skin and hair. All these things can keep you looking more like your youthful self. I find energy and outlook are the two things which make people seem youthful to me. Joan Collins is in her 80s and she just guest starred on The Royals, playing my mother. Not only did she look fantastic but she has the joie de vivre of someone in their 20s.

Healthy Living: Our traditional last question: what health tips do you have for Healthy Living readers?

Elizabeth Hurley: Spread the love! Nothing keeps you healthier than loving people and being loved back. After that, get plenty of sleep, plenty of fresh air, eat lots of vegetables and don’t drink too much alcohol.
