Liz Hurley doesn't worry about opinions

Elizabeth Hurley (BANG)

Elizabeth Hurley no longer cares what people think.

The 46-year-old beauty - who revealed earlier this year her marriage to Arun Nayar was over after it emerged she had been secretly dating former cricketer Shane Warne - finds getting older "liberating" because she is more open to new things.

She said: "It helps to be open to new things. Some close off and become more insular as they grow older, for me it's the other way. I care less what people think. It's liberating."

Elizabeth - who has a nine-year-old son Damian with former boyfriend Steve Bing - believes it is more important to take care of her appearance now she is getting older as she doesn't want to look like a "bag lady".

She added in an interview with Grazia magazine: "As you get older it's the grooming - unkempt doesn't work.

"At 19 you can have buttons hanging off and stringy hair, but as we get older we look like bag ladies if we let things slide."
