Is this demigod - star of the sulfurous fantasy classic film Bedazzled- like the rest of us? Beauty and Fashion editor Yana Mandeville interviews the Greatest She Devil of All time to learn what she signed that made her remain stunningly ageless.

Healthy Living Magazine: Estee Lauder was your first modeling job and it’s lasted for over a decade. How do you explain your longevity with Lauder?

Elizabeth Hurley: When Estee Lauder approached me out of the blue and asked me to work for them I was staggered as I’d never modeled before. Now I’m in my nineteenth year and I still love working for them. They’ve been very loyal and supportive to me and stuck with me through thick and thin. Estee Lauder taught me to make an effort with my appearance every day and now it’s a habit. I don’t always look glamorous as I work and have my son to look after, but I watch my weight, don’t drink much alcohol and try not to bite my nails.

Healthy Living Magazine: What do you want to be mostly known for?

Elizabeth Hurley: Without a doubt, serving as the spokesperson for The Estée Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign. The BCA Campaign was founded by my friend, the late Evelyn H. Lauder, and for years we travelled the world together raising awareness for breast health and funds for breast cancer research. I am passionately dedicated to this cause, and will continue to spread the word about early dedication and the importance of breast health globally.

Healthy Living Magazine:What’s the best compliment you’ve ever been given?

Elizabeth Hurley: I love it when people are nice about my son.

Healthy Living Magazine: How did motherhood change you?

Elizabeth Hurley: My lifestyle is radically different. Before, my life was all about me, but that life seems inconceivable now. I can’t imagine lying on my bed and reading a book for hours… those days are gone, gone, gone. But I’d never turn the clock back; I can’t imagine not having a child and I’d never go back to not having Damian – I could never be without him.

Healthy Living Magazine: How do you explain your stunning looks in your 40s?

Elizabeth Hurley: To be beautiful at any age, you need to be happy, go to bed earlier, never sleep with the central heating on and use a good moisturizer.

Healthy Living Magazine: What do you consider your greatest achievement in your career so far?

Elizabeth Hurley: I think it’s an achievement to still be here! Most folks have fallen by the wayside by now.

Healthy Living Magazine: Please share tips on lifestyle, habits, sources which influence your health and beauty

Elizabeth Hurley: Every woman knows how hard it is to juggle everything and I’m definitely no exception. There are times when it gets very hard to keep all the balls in the air and then you really realize how important good health is. Often women spend so much time taking care of everyone else that they don’t leave enough times for themselves. But we need to stay healthy so we can indeed be there for others. Small things, like taking time to go for a walk to get some fresh air, having a day when you only eat vegetables and fruits, drinking enough water and not drinking too much alcohol, getting an annual mammogram if you’re over 40: all these things can make a difference.

Healthy Living Magazine: If you could go back in time and give your 20-year-old self some advice, what would it be?

Elizabeth Hurley: I was pretty switched on and motivated at 20, so I wouldn’t have needed any pep talks. However, I don’t think I realized quite how great it was to be so young, I always had my nose firmly to the grindstone and always put work first, so I probably would tell myself to lighten up a bit and play a bit more.

Healthy Living Magazine: What’s your proudest achievement?

Elizabeth Hurley: Keeping my son safe, happy and healthy is my proudest achievement by far.

Healthy Living Magazine: Why did you decide to design your own beachwear collection?

Elizabeth Hurley: I decided to venture into Beachwear not only because I’ve always been obsessed with holiday clothes, but also because it’s an area where women, regardless of shape or size, can either look amazing or really get it wrong. I like to come up with styles, prints and colors that make people look great and make women feel fabulously sexy at any age. I get inspired whenever I see a well dressed woman on vacation. I spend all my holidays looking at how women dress and feel on the beach.
