Product Description


From 'That Dress' to the very public wrangle over the paternity of her baby son, Elizabeth Hurley is now an international star and modern day icon, whose glamorous lifestyle is a source of endless fascination to the public. A skilled self-publicist, she has risen from being seen as arm candy from Basingstoke to being hot property in her own right, and is now a household name on both sides of the Atlantic. The wealthy 38-year-old actress and former Est e Lauder model is now a single mum who continues to run her own film company with ex-partner Hugh Grant. "Liz Hurley Uncovered" charts her extraordinary rise to the top of the show business elite for the first time.

Format: Hardcover
This book in all honesty tells you nothing about Elizabeth Hurley, than we already know.She definatley has no talent as actress, thats why when she makes a film they are quickley forgotten as soon as your told about them.Alison Bowyer it seems has written this as though her research has come from tabloid newspapers.
I read this book just for a bit of light reading, for what it is worth, I might as well read the beano comic. The only conclusion I can make of Liz Hurley, she is very clever when it comes to making hype and publicity, modeling is very much her forte.If Alison Bowyer wants to carry on writing biographies of famous people, then I suggest she writes about people with talent.

I recently purchased this book and found it to be one of the worst books I have read.
It contained nothing new and I can honestly say that I think most of the subject matter has already been in the press.
I would not recommed the book as it has very little substance and is reliant on comments from a few people, mostly from Liz Hurleys youth.

Format: Hardcover
This is a proficient 'showbiz' journalist's book without being in any way remarkable. Alison Bowyer, who writes for various British tabloid newspapers, charts the career of the celebrity actress from Basingstoke, making thorough use of their press-cutting files and supplementing this material with a few interviews. People who have followed the Hurley saga in their newspapers over the years probably won't find very much that is new here. As someone who has only lately taken an interest in Elizabeth, however, I found the book reasonably entertaining.
The author, true to her tabloid roots, cannot resist punning chapter headings (e.g., "Hurley Days"). Nor can she resist the temptation to include the occasional mildly salacious or catty remark (though I readily concede that this temptation must have been very great at times!). In general, the biography is not overly friendly to its subject. With the focus squarely on celebrity gossip, Elizabeth's films are not covered in any detail. Perhaps this is understandable. Despite her aspirations, Ms Hurley does not come across as a serious actress. Rather she appears to be a professional beauty in the time-honoured Lily Langtry tradition. Such a career is not inherently dishonourable. To succeed in it requires cleverness and dedication. Yet there is inevitably something tawdry about it.
One specific criticism of the book: the pictures are rather disappointing. This is ironic, given that Elizabeth's fame rests largely on her good looks. There are eight pages of colour illustrations, but the chief criterion of selection would appear to have been cheapness. (And, of course, despite the titillating title, Liz keeps her clothes on in all of them!)

HASH(0x957f4e70) out of 5 stars Superficial Book Reveals Little About Elizabeth Hurley 4 Mar. 2016
By Catherine p LaViolette - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Though this book gives the 411 on Liz's early years I expected more. Book glossed over relationship with Hugh Grant and other friends and romantic partners. She's disciplined, determined, and knows how to cultivate fame. I guess her personality is what was missing. I'd heard she didn't want Grant after the scandal but she didn't want anyone else to have him either and basically broke up his relationship with Jemima Khan. THAT would've been interesting! A good beach read but disappointingly superficial.
