At the age of 29, Hurley’s famous career began as a spokesmodel for Estee Lauder. Ever since 1995, she was a model for their products, like Intuitions, Pleasures, and Sensuous. But she had a little help along the way when she started dating Hugh Grant. In the mid-2000’s, her career came to a standstill as she dealt with her personal life. In an interview, she said, “I never saw my son. On my one day off, I was so tired and had to learn all my lines for the next week. I thought This is not a life for my child. Knowing there was a chance I’d never come back, I said, ‘I can’t do it. I’m going to wait until he’s 8.'” Instead, she chose family life. Later on, once she starred in Gossip Girl, her fame came straight back, when she starred in The Royals. At 57 years old, she looks as good as ever (via The Things).
