Liz Hurley may have played a queen consort of England in E!’s The Royals, but aside from that, her life doesn’t exactly mirror Her Majesty’s.
Except, apparently, in one surprising way.
The 54-year-old has claimed she shares a stalker with the Queen, and that’s not really a common thread you want.
The Austin Powers actress was on Watch What Happens Live with host Andy Cohen and Stephen Dorff when a viewer called in to ask what her weirdest fan interaction was.
Liz said: ‘Well, in the office in London, we have a file called “nutters”. Every time particular people send mail, they have to go into the nutter file.
‘There’s one nutter – I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this – he only stalks two people. I’m one of them, and the other is the Queen of England. So as it happens, every time he changes location, we get told by Scotland Yard.’
The actress – who is mum to model Damian Hurley – added that she really shouldn’t be talking about said stalker.
While Liz and Elizabeth share names and, apparently, a stalker, Hurley isn’t the biggest fan of the Royal Family, it seems.
When asked which real-life Royal she would like to portray on film, she said: ‘None of them. Dreary.’
The Bedazzled star gave a raunchy twist on the monarchy in four series of The Royals, in which she played Queen Helena.
However, the fifth series for the show wasn’t picked up, and Liz admits that she wasn’t happy with the ending.
She told Andy: ‘We didn’t expect it to end. Everybody thought there would definitely be a fifth season, so the storylines weren’t really finished properly.
‘I think a lot of the fans were upset that we didn’t tie up loose ends. We were upset, too, in a way.’
And when asked whether the show may return, Liz stomped all over fans’ dreams by saying: ‘Unlikely. I think the sets were burned. They’re gone.’
