Originally wanting to be a dancer, little Elizabeth Jane Hurley enrolled at a ballet school in England and also attended the London Studio Centre. Much later, she would make the transition into acting and etch a name for herself in the fashion world after the safety pin held Versace dress made its appearance.

Come 2012, Elizabeth is better known as "Shane Warne's soon-to-be-wife" and "Hugh Grant's Ex", rather than a sought after actress.
