Hugh Grant,39 and Liz Hurley,34
HE IS the foppish star of Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, otherwise known as Liz hurley's Handbag - a handy but tiresome accessory.
SHE IS the Worlds greatest attention seeker. Hurley variously describes herself as model,actress and producer. But her true profession is attending Hugh's film premieres in virtual dresses designed to get her on to front pages around the globe.
COLLECTIVE WORTH Well over £15 million. She is already worth £2.6 million and has a £3 million contract as the face of Estee Lauder and grant brings in £2.5 million a film.
LENGTH OF RELATIONSHIP 11 years and six months
LENGTH OF ENGAGEMENT Liz hasn't got the engagement ring yet,but friends claim they've kept each other company on a retainer for years.
COMPATIBILTY A mutual and overwhelming desire for worldwide media coverage (and a throughly disingenuous perchant for moaning about the pressures of their self-perpetuated,high profile lives)
WHY THE DELAY ? They are still publicly trying to patch up their image as a devoted and loving couple after Grant was caught-quite literally -with his trousers down,being entertained by L.A. prostitute Divine Brown, the damage is irreparable. And behind the scenes, Liz has been too busy with her cotiere of aristocratic 'good friends'
WILL THET WON'T THEY? Only when they have children according to Miss Hurley. Somehow she does not look like the maternal type.
FIVE YEARS DOWN THE LINE Blatantly continuing their scam, Liz and Hugh are the grand masters of the game and they understand that two heads are far , far better than one.
This is the transcript of an article in the Sunday Mail Newspaper of 27th, February, 2000
The Famous relationship so aptly described above is no longer intact, despite rumours that all was not well with the couples relationship, they continued to keep up a pretence. That could not last and hence the public admittance that it was all over between them. Disentangling their buisness affairs might prove difficult as they are joint owners of Simian productions and have several homes around the Globe. An expert on Divorce said that due to the fact they are not married ,it should be easier to disengage them and the buisness. Hugh Grant will be the loser, Liz will go on to greater things and probably meet someone who will love her as she deserves. Simian Films is valued at £30 million, not bad when you consider that Liz and Grant put less than £500,000 into the venture in 1994. Hey , Guys there is hope for you all now !!!!
