Elizabeth Hurley considers Hugh Grant
as "one of her family".
The 45-year-old beauty
has remained "best friends" with the actor - whom she dated for 13 years until 2000 - and though they quarrel all the time, she loves nothing more than spending time with her former boyfriend.
She said: "Hugh and I met in 1987 on the set on a movie in Madrid and have been best friend ever since. I completely consider him one of my family and love spending time with him, even though we annoy each other at times.
"We rarely get through a day without fighting, but we always end up laughing."
The pair are so close the 50-year-old star is even godfather to Elizabeth's son Damian and has a close relationship
to the nine-year-old boy.
The actress said: "Damian adores his godfather and Hugh is great with him."
And although Elizabeth - who is in the process of divorcing husband Arun Nayar - thinks the idea of her ever being romantically involved with the 'Notting Hill' star again is "preposterous" she imagines they could end up living like a married couple.
She said: "It makes us laugh as the idea is sort of preposterous. We've often said though, if all else fails, we'll end up living together again."
