I wish Liz Hurley would shut up......

Well...the latest "get yourself in shape" advice from the bikini clad icon is in Grazia Magazine. Here are some highlights...if you can bear it!

Liz's Bikini Blues

You wouldn't think that a stunning, slim, rich-fiance bagging actress/model with fame and fortune would have all that much to worry about.

But there's signs that Liz Hurley might very well be as paranoid as the rest of us when it comes to stripping off on the beach.

Admitting that her bikini collection was based on her own experiences, Liz isn't afraid to use the tips that she's gathered to hide her imperfections - though we struggle to believe she has any.

"There's nothing worse than furiously slurping a pina colada, feeling red-faced and stringy-haired in nothing but a damp swimsuit with a towel around your waist when surrounded by other girls looking super glam," she says.

And writing in Grazia about her tum, the Austin Powers actress admits: "Last minute preparations have to be relied upon."

"I've found that if I stop drinking all alcohol and eat very little dinner (ie a slice of toast and Marmite and an apple) for a week before going away my stomach definitely becomes much flatter."

The face of Estee Lauder could get away with wearing anything, but there are some fashions which she wouldn't touch: "Thongs are hideous on everyone, except maybe pubescent Brazilian girls," she says, somewhat modestly.

But she also believes colour to be an important factor in looking like a beach babe. "I don't feel good in a white bikini when my skin is pale and pasty," she reveals.

At least she didn't talk about her starvation diet anymore - how she snacks on 6 raisins.

Yawn, Liz! Why don't you go find someone else's husband to steal or something . . .

toast for dinner for a week = starvation in my book

I hate articles like this -- but women buy magazines with this crap in it so it must be important to some... I personally went right of EH when she said she would kill herself if she was the size of Marilyn Monroe... stupid stupid cow..

I'm sure a slice of toast and marmite for dinner every day does make you slim.

So does vomiting after every meal. So does eating nothing but cabbage for 2 weeks. But it's not really recommended, is it?

What on earth is Grazia doing publishing shit like this? Why is this vacuuous woman supposed to be interesting? Does she have any fans?

she is as annoying as blooming Posh!

dinny Fri 01-Jul-05 22:12:14

do you reckon the girlfriend she mentioned (who was ashamed of her stretchmarks) was Posh?

She's okay - so long as she keeps her mouth closed. People that stupid shouldn't be allowed to speak in public.

I've gon off Grazia. Used to like it, but it's annoying now.
