Elizabeth Hurley isn't letting a made-up scandal—specifically a phony affair with President Bill Clinton—keep her down.
The day after she slammed the reports and denied the "ludicrously silly" allegations on Twitter, the Austin Powers actress stepped out on Thursday morning in London to meet up with a friend.
The 48-year-old brunette beauty looked chic in a black tweed form-fitting jacket, skinny dark jeans, black booties, a black leather handbag and sunglasses.
Tom Sizemore, who dated Hurley for three years and is known for his roles in Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, allegedly recapped a fictional tryst between the former commander in chief and the English model on tape. He later recanted the story, saying he made up the whole thing up when he was on drugs.
"I've never met former President Clinton, I've never known him to know Ms. Hurley," the actor said during an appearance on HuffPost Live on Wednesday.
"I'm not denying that I said these things," he clarified. "I don't remember saying them, but it's an old video tape, and they're the rantings of a guy...it's been well-chronicled that I had a very severe drug problem."
Radar claims the reported audio was recorded in January 2014. Sizemore, who states he's been sober since 2009, said Wednesday he has not heard the tape but believes it comes from a "very old" tape.)
In a recording reportedly obtained by Radar, Sizemore claims to have arranged a secret rendezvous between Clinton and Hurley, after meeting the then-president at a 1998 screening of Saving Private Ryan at the White House. Per the recording, this made-up meeting resulted in a yearlong affair that ended when Clinton said, "I don't do love and I'm beginning to think I might love you."
