Well, that explains it! Elizabeth Hurley rated her famous ex-boyfriend Hugh Grant‘s skills in the sack while playing Plead the Fifth on Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, Mar. 10, and her response was perfect.
The Royals actress, 49, was a topic on WWHL last month when Grant stopped by the show, and she returned the favor on Tuesday by answering all three of Andy Cohen‘s questions.
“I know that you watched your friend Hugh Grant on the show,” the Bravo host noted. “We asked him what he thought the reason that your relationship did not work out was… And I would like to know the reason why you didn’t think it worked out.”
While fellow guest Tony Danza yelped, “Holy crap” to the straight-shooting inquiry, Hurley hesitated then diplomatically noted: “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?”
The British beauty then revealed that Grant even had a special moniker while they were dating. “My friends used to call him Rumpelstiltskin,” she shared. “He is grumpy!”
Hurley, however, did have one positive thing to say about the Bridget Jones’s Diary actor (in the sack!) after Cohen asked her to rate Grant’s sex skills on a scale from one to 10.
“Oh really, a 10!” she exclaimed. “I was with him for 13 years!”
Indeed, the couple famously dated from 1987 to 2000. Seven years into their relationship, Grant pled guilty to misdemeanor lewd conduct after he was caught with Hollywood prostitute Divine Brown. Despite that mishap, he and Hurley have remained close.
“The sex bit probably fizzled out,” Grant told Cohen last month, “but now she’s my absolute best friend, the number one person I call in a crisis.” (The Notting Hill actor, after all has dealt with his fair share of scandal in the past few years. Grant is a father of three kids, to his daughter Tabitha, 3, and son Felix, 2, whom he shares with Tinglan Hong. He also secretly welcomed a boy with TV producer Anna Elisabet Eberstein in September 2012.)
