Old flames, it seems, snuff hard. For the second time in a month, Hugh Grant and his onetime girlfriend, Elizabeth Hurley, have been spotted together—most recently at New York’s J.F.K. Apparently more of a Bruce Willis-and-Demi Moore kind of relationship than something less platonic, Mr. Grant, 47, tagged along with Ms. Hurley, 42, her new husband, Arun Nayar, and her five-year-old son, Damian, last month on a trip to the Maldives.
But this time, the duo arrived at the airport sans Mr. Nayar and child. In a vain attempt to evade sparking any rumors of a rekindled romance, the actors left the terminal by separate exits and in their own cars. The task of blowing Mr. Grant’s cover, however, fell to his limo driver, who posted the rom-com poster boy’s name in his window.
Perhaps in the future, Mr. Grant will choose to cross the Atlantic in a private plane. After all, only six years after picking up Andy Warhol’s Elizabeth Taylor for £2 million, the Londoner is preparing to auction the piece tonight at Christie’s for an estimated £15 million profit.
