Elizabeth Hurley’s 17-year-old son Damian looks exactly like her, only prettier

I really admire how Elizabeth Hurley managed to tone down the scandal around the birth of her son Damian Hurley. For those of us old enough to remember, it was a BIG story. Liz was dating Steve Bing, she got pregnant and Bing pitched a fit and tried to claim that the kid wasn’t his. Paternity tests and drama ensued and Bing looked like such an a–hole. Hurley reacted by returning to England and raising her son somewhat quietly, with a series of male friends and boyfriends stepping in to help raise the boy (including Hugh Grant). Plus, she was married to Arun Nayar for several years, and I got the feeling that he cared for his stepson too.

Anyway, this made me feel so old – Damian Hurley is now 17 years old. He’ll turn 18 next April. And his mother is encouraging him to become a nepotism model. You know why? Because Damian is prettier than Elizabeth! Good lord, this kid is just lovely. Gorgeous skin, a pouty mouth like Angelina Jolie and beautiful hair. He signed on to a modeling agency (Tess Management) last year, and in 2019, he became one of the faces of Pat McGrath’s cosmetics line. He’s basically the British Kaia Gerber! Only in Damian’s case, he actually looks SO MUCH like his mother. Kaia Gerber wishes she looked this much like Cindy Crawford.

    Dear lord he is gorgeous. That hair! Those cheekbones! That is definitely a nepotism model I can’t be mad about

  2. Iknow says:

    For a while there, he looked like his father. But then his features settled and it’s Liz all the way. That’s a gorgeous person.

  3. Diana says:

    He is gorgeous!!! That face is perfect!!! 😍

  4. Lucy says:

    Ok but he’s actually a pretty great model??? Way better than most of the nepotism models we already know. Also, MAJOR hair envy!!!

  5. Jerusha says:

    Different strokes, I guess. I find him creepy looking.

    • NotHeidisGirl says:

      Yep.

    • CariBean says:

      Yeah.

    • Dilettante says:

      Me too

    • MsIam says:

      Yeah, me too. Like a CGI human.

      • MrsPanda says:

        Yes! a CGI human, a beautiful one but not quite real. Perfect for a model though, they are often beautifully strange creatures.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      I commented up thread that I find him very beautiful,but I still agree with you all,I think it’s just creepy that he looks so much like his mother,so for me I’m in awe of his beautiful looks,but at the same time he’s almost hard to look at because I cannot tell if he is male or female-not that it matters-I guess ultimately I find him very good looking and I googled pics of him with shorter hair and his features shine even more IMO.

    • Mj says:

      Effin jealous are you! its a drag you are!!.lol pitty you!!!!!!

      • Jerusha says:

        Why would I be jealous of a boy that looks waxlike? And I have a 17 year old grandson that’s better looking than him. Silly response.

      • ennie says:

        that’s your biased opinion.
        Actually many models do appear androgynous, it’s a look. It does not mean that they have a certain preference. Many female models are styled to look androgynous, too. Gisele has been accused of not looking feminine enough to be such a successful model. So to each their own.

      • Jerusha says:

        What a ridiculous comment. How the hell do you get that I give a flip about androgynous or not? That never occurred to me. Quite a few others feel the same. But if You like him, fine. As I said, different strokes for different folks.

    • MB says:

      Same. There is something really off-putting about him for me :/

    • Oliviajoy1995 says:

      He’s one of those people I look at and I can’t figure out if they’re good looking or not. He has odd features.

    • Selena says:

      Yes me too. And he is such a narcissist! Ugh! He is ugly because of egocentric posing, he wants to be a model and “influencer”. Yuck.

    • grumpyterrier says:

      Yes, super creepy.

  6. Mignionette says:

    Liz literally spit Damian out. I see ZERO Steve Bing. Which is thankful given how Steve has treated Damian.

  7. Middle of the road says:

    She once said she’d kill herself if she was fat. Not a fan.

    • minx says:

      I remember that. She said Marilyn Monroe was fat, didn’t she?

    • Wilady says:

      We all say cringe things, and then hopefully grow and change. Humanity will self destruct if we write people off for single phrases uttered in moments of weakness.

      In her defense, at some point in her life she probably felt like her entire world as she knew it would be over if she gained weight. I’ve felt like that in college, but thankfully outgrew it (ha). She was a model who had her security and livelihood because of her body, though, and that’s very shaky security. I can’t imagine that vulnerability and fear over my looks.

    • Tanguerita says:

      She is a stupid self-obsessed cow, who said she wanted Brexit so she could get back her 60 watt lightbulbs. Not a joke.
      This is another pearl of wisdom from her: “I yearn for the days when my (gorgeous navy blue) passport got stamped when I went anywhere in Europe, and I loved puzzling over fistfuls of
      Italian lire, French francs and Deutschemarks. It was glamorous and exciting.”
      I wonder if Hugh Grant still talks to her.

      • Chrissy says:

        Just, wow!

      • Jaded says:

        Hugh is Damien’s godfather. They’re still best of friends. Damien’s father, Steve Bing, is a total a-hole and he and his father tried to screw Damien out of any inheritance as he was born out of wedlock. Steve Bing actually accused Elizabeth of lying about his being Damien’s father and forced her to have DNA testing done to prove it. Damian’s father and grandfather, real estate heir Dr Peter Bing, had tried to prevent him and his half-sister from accessing their inheritance, but fortunately a judge shot that down and they will each inherit several million of a 380,000,000 pound empire. I don’t get the hate-on for her – she’s raised millions for breast cancer research and awareness and I too used to get excited by seeing all the stamps on my navy blue passport. I still do.

      • NSFW says:

        She allegedly walked around a DEAD crew member on the set of Mickey Blue Eyes. Let that sink in. Not an ounce of empathy in Liz. Hugh seems to keep clear and is married to a fine woman with a mind, heart, and soul. Liz poses intimately with Damian and her nephew, Miles. Her sister, Kate, went from literary agent to personal assistant to Liz and has no issues with Liz’s provocative posing with her nephew and her son. Michael, younger brother, went from engineer to organic farmer for Liz. They are enmeshed. Liz lied. Bing has allegedly paid on and for Damian all along; she wanted to milk some sympathy (always the victim). Wouldn’t surprise me if she’s Trump’s next fling. They deserve each other. Melania and Liz deserve each other as well.

    • lucy2 says:

      I’ve never really had a good impression of her as a person.

      Damian is very striking, and will probably be a good model.

  8. caitlinsmom says:

    Just unreal. It is amazing how much they look alike. He is an absolutely beautiful human being.

  9. Rogue says:

    Omg this is uncanny. I thought that Reese W and her daughter were twins but Liz and Damian take the cake.

  10. xdanix says:

    Yeah, Arun Nayar definitely was (and I think still is) a big presence in his life. He was with Liz from the time Damian was very young, and very much became his dad- can’t remember if he ever officially adopted him but I do know I’ve read Damian considers him and called/calls him his dad, and he continued to long after the marriage ended (so I assume that’s still the case.) I always thought that was lovely to see.

  11. RoyalBlue says:

    Yes, she just hit copy and paste when she made him. So uncanny.

  12. Trish-a says:

    I remember all this drama. Also remember the half sister stuff? She was raised by a billionaire and then they went thru Bings garbage and he is the real bio dad.

  13. VS says:

    Yes he has his mom’s eyes and hair coloring but the bones structure is all his father………. he is handsome

  14. Veruca_Salty says:

    Off topic (sort of) but I don’t get the constant digs about Kaia Gerber looking nothing like her Mother… she is beautiful and she DOES resemble Cindy. Nepotism at play? Oh, no doubt. But to say over and over again that she looks nothing like her Mom/wishes she did is quite the reach.

    As for Damian… he really does have the “model” look, albeit mildly creepy looking.

    • Kaiser says:

      It’s more like I’m making fun of the “Kaia looks EXACTLY like Cindy!” branding that has been a big part of Kaia’s whole deal. She even talks about how she and her mom are twins and they just… are not. There is a resemblance, for sure. But they’re not twinning like Liz & Damian.

    • gw says:

      Sorry the son looks more like Cindy. Kaia is her dad, especially with those close-set eyes.

  15. Valiantly Varnished says:

    He’s creepy looking to me. 🤷🏽‍♀️
    And yes he looks like Liz. But like a creepy doll version of her

    • Jerusha says:

      I’m certain she’s totally groomed him to look that way.

    • Div says:

      Weirdly, I kind of think that “strange factor” helps him as a model. Like there are several models who are gorgeous but also kind of odd looking in a way (off the top of my head, Lily Cole is one of them), and having a particular “look” seems to be their trademark and help them stand out compared to the more bland models (Kendall Jenner).

    • A says:

      IMO he looks like a creepy male version of Linda Evangelista.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        I can see that as well. Either way: Creepy looking. Like if I saw him on a street at night I would be afraid for my life.

      • ChillyWilly says:

        I think it’s a combo of those icy blue eyes and the 20 lbs of fillers the kid had pumped into his face. He looks like an evil android. These young kids really shouldn’t be putting all this crap into their faces.

  16. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    He’s certainly pretty.

  17. Allergy says:

    No sorry I think he looks really strange.

  18. perplexed says:

    He looks like a model. But that’s it — a model. In real life, I would not be attracted to him.

    • Div says:

      Same. There are several models like him who are very attractive, but also kind of strange/real doll looking, and I can objectively appreciate their beauty/modeling skills and get why they model….but at the same time suspect that their “strangeness” would probably overwhelm their beauty in real life. Like some looks are probably more suited for a magazine page than the movies or real life.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Oh I have no doubt his looks help him as a model. Models are often rather strange looking but photograph well. But he still looks like a modern day Dorian Gray to me.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Dorian Gray! Perfect comparison.

    • hunter says:

      Truth, I don’t like my men to be too pretty/beautiful and he is both.

  19. ChelseaCatLady says:

    He was on The Royals with her as Prince Hansel. Liz’s character, Queen Helena, was obsessed with Hansel’s reality show. On the Christmas episode, he was brought to the palace as her present. Their interactions were hilarious.

  20. A says:

    He looks like he could be Linda Evangelista’s son.

  21. Ka Sal says:

    Can someone tell me what they see in Kaia? Her eyes are so close together

  22. JanetDR says:

    I don’t see creepy at all. Androgynous and gorgeous! Also he knows where to look for a photo 😃 Unlike me 😜

    • Lillian says:

      I agree- he’s lovely with awesome bone structure. I *think* some of the unpositive evaluations may come from a combination of people sometimes finding light-colored or exceptionally clear eyes unsettling as we’re somewhat unused to them, and his (good) models ability to look into the middle-ground for a photo.
      (Fwiw, when I’m healthy my eyes are light and sharp enough that folks find it intimidating when I look at them directly. So to be politely noncombative, one learns to look to the side or use “soft eyes”, and of course then one is called evasive, at best. Shrug.)
      Dudes a good model and looks healthy as shit.
      I approve.

      • Lady D says:

        Look ‘em right in the eye, Lillian. I bet your eyes are beautiful. If they are intimidated that is their problem not yours. If they don’t like it, they will look away. You’re the one that gets to live your life, do it chin up and eyes forward.

      • Lillian says:

        That was awesome. Thank you :)

  23. olala says:

    This child aleays gave me creeps like Damian from Omen(when he was younger)
    Now give me creeps as too feminine (not androgynous)

    • Chrissy says:

      Not to be mean, but when you mentioned Damian, it owned on me that this guy reminds me of Chucky, that creepy doll from some Eighties movie.

  24. Mrs. Peel says:

    He’s too pretty for my liking, and needs to lay off the frosted lipstick.

  25. perplexed says:

    He looks like Milla Jovovich.

  26. MC2 says:

    What’s up with people chiming in that he’s not to their liking or creepy?! I didn’t find Linda Evangelista to my “liking” back in the day & found Kate Moss creepy in some pics, but never once questioned that they were good models. This isn’t about each of our personal tastes, or if we desire to have sex with the person, this is about a job that he seems like a perfect fit for.

    • perplexed says:

      I don’t think the opinions have to be mutually exclusive. He is good at being a model. And it is also possible, as with most male models, to find them kind of creepy-looking. How many females really want to date a male model in the same way that Leo Dicaprio likes to date female models? I don’t know the truth, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the number is low and most women would rather just date a conventional-looking engineer.

      When you’re a model you are being objectified, and most people will question whether they’re attracted to said model. I don’t find any attraction to him. That said, I do think he’s a good model. He’s in the right profession.

    • Trillian says:

      Well, since people on here get to say that he is sooo incredibly beautiful, what’s wrong with pointing out that not everyone feels that way? I’m team creepy all the way.

    • Lillian says:

      +1 MC2

  27. Elo says:

    Jesus that is a beautiful human. He is almost uncomfortably beautiful.

  28. Kkat says:

    He looks ethereal. Unlike Kia or the wooden Kardashian HE looks like a super model.

  29. JanetFerber says:

    I think the double picture looks like one Diane Arbus might have taken. Creepy, yes.

  30. guilty pleasures says:

    His looks like the face people are trying to obtain through surgery and tragically fail. He is unbelievably beautiful.

  31. Louise says:

    He looks like his dad too.

    • ennie says:

      yeah, around the eyes and brows, the dad is a bit creepy looking, he has an intense stare, and he inherited it.

  32. anony7 says:

    In that first photo he reminds me of the actor Edward Albert (“Green Acres” Eddie Albert’s son, who passed away at 55).

  33. olala says:

    On another note what a disgrace of a men are Bing amd his father. What a kind of man completely rejects two of his children. And his family too. Unreal and with all the money it is so awful to see.

    • Jaded says:

      Yup – despicable human beings both of them.

    • enike says:

      I think he was disgusting when talking about Liz years back (the scandal about Damian). He said he saw Liz like every few months only and she used to do threesomes with him.
      Liz pushed the: “I loved him” angle, Bing pushed the: “how you could love me, we have barely seen each other and have slept together like 3x and had threesomes” angle

      so who knows what went on
      maybe Liz wanted a rich baby daddy

  34. Polly says:

    He’s good looking sure, but I think his similarity to Liz is about the same as Kaia’s similarly to Cindy – in that he mostly looks like his dad but has his mum’s colouring and eye colour. You can see they’re related but I don’t see the twinning that others do. He also looks a bit cosmetically enhanced to me.

  35. Mar says:

    He’s a work of art. What a great combo of both parents.

  36. Tai says:

    He is 17 why doesn’t he have any spots or beard shadow? Hmmm, very few people escape adolescence without a blemish or two. I suspect there is makeup involved. Certainly some blush is on his cheeks. He has that androgynous look some young men have at this age when they can be very pretty. As he gets a little older and maybe grows a beard he may be devastatingly handsome. That is actually good as a model. It gives him options.

    • ennie says:

      my husband at 37 is still waiting to grow a beard. He has thick eyebrows, but not much of face hair, just as one of his brothers, while the older one looks like santa claus. Genes.

  37. L4frimaire says:

    He definitely is a masculine version of her, with some resemblance to his father. He is ridiculously gorgeous and the hair alone should make him money. Sometimes the press presents him as a bit gender ambiguous but maybe it’s just because he’s just so flawlessly good looking and doesn’t wear the typical bro uniform. Curious to see what he looks like at 25.

  38. clairej says:

    I think he is hugely like his Dad with his Mum’s colouring. Not sure I find him beautiful or sexy at all. I like my male models more like David Gandy. Not really into the androgynous look. But can see he will be successful.

  39. Amy says:

    Now that is well and truly a pretty boy.

  40. Jess says:

    He’s definitely gorgeous and unique looking, he’ll go far in the modeling world. I love long hair on boys and men, I’m so glad that trend is coming back around.

  41. Skittlesandkittens says:

    Tons of lip filler on that boy. Very sad. He used to be so naturally cute but is slowly turning into a caricature. Look up some of his old pictures and you’ll see. No need to have a 17year olds lips injected so much.

    • ennie says:

      can’t find a remarkable difference.
      maybe a bit top lip, but he has had defined lips even as a kid, not too thin.

  42. Suzieq359 says:

    Jared, most of what you said was true however Steve Bing was fighting his dad Peter so that Steve’s children could gain the inheritance. Steve felt his dad and Steve’s sister were trying to block his children, who were conceived out of wedlock, from gaining the inheritance. For the sister that would mean more money for her children. Steve actually submitted paperwork against his father during the court case and said his sister should be penalized for trying to exclude his children, Damian and his half sister Kira. Steve was a jerk to Liz in the early years
    regarding paternity for sure, but he is looking out for Damian now to make sure he’s not excluded from the grandfather’s estate.

  43. m'tuna says:

    It appears to me that they’re transitioning. I have no feelings about that either way. Just an observation that they look much less masculine than they did a couple of years ago.

  44. Aven Sharp says:

    Wow, there is a lot of (unintentional) transphobia in these comments. My child just came out over the holidays to our extended family as trans, and so maybe I’m sensitive, but comments like Damian is creepy because he looks too feminine or he’s hard to look at because you can’t tell if he’s male or female betray a subconscious transphobia. At least 60% of trans* youth have considered suicide, and 40% of trans youth have actually attempted it. (Trans includes those who are non-binary, not just those who have socially and/or medically transitioned completely to the other sex.)
