Elizabeth Hurley’s husband, millionaire Indian textile heir Arun Nayar, must be a really confident, secure guy because most men probably wouldn’t be so understanding if their wife went around telling people that her ex was still her "No. 1" man. But, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, that’s exactly what the still sultry British actress said in a recent interview.
In an interview with Zest Magazine, Liz revealed that she and ex-boyfriend Hugh Grant are still close friends, despite their break-up in 2000 and an embarrassing prostitution scandal. (Hugh was caught and arrested in 1995 with a Hollywood hooker while he and Liz were dating.) Although Liz went on to have a child with American businessman Steve Bing and then married Arun in 2007, she told Zest that nobody quite understands her like the perennial bachelor Hugh, whom she met in 1987 when they were both struggling actors.

"My sister Katie is my loyal best friend. But there is a part of my life neither Arun nor Katie understand; a career part and a different emotional level where Hugh is still my number one. We've been best friends for 24 years and that's not nothing," she said.
"He's a part of our family - we all go on holiday together and Arun and Hugh get on incredibly well. We're all grown up, and if I wanted to be with Hugh, we would be together."
