Well clearly, we're not the only ones obsessed with Elizabeth Hurley.  

While stopping by The Jonathan Ross Show Saturday night in London, The Royals star found out she had quite the famous admirer. Turns out fellow guest Russell Crowe has been quite the fan of Queen Helena for many years.

When asked how he first met the stunning actress, Crowe revealed it was more than 30 years ago when he was asked to be a dog walker for Hurley's pet.

"I have no idea who I'm going to meet so I go round to this house, knock on the door and a 21-year-old Elizabeth Hurley opens the door in a men's business shirt and nothing else," Crowe recalled. "I just thought ‘thank you Jesus.'"

To his credit, the Hollywood actor made quite the impression on his employer as well. "I don't remember the shirt but I do remember Russell," Hurley proclaimed. "He was the sexy Australian that used to come round."

Try to play it cool, Russell.  

As if the Gladiator star needed to make it more clear that he liked Hurley, Crowe also found a way to compliment her Versace dress from 20 long years ago.

"I was in America last week and people were telling me that the dress is having its 20th birthday," Hurley explained. "I am like, ‘What are you talking about?' It's bizarre. I don't get it."

"Oh, I get it," Crowe added inferring that the revealing ensemble looked quite impressive on the actress. "If anybody needs it explained, I'll be available after the show."

Luckily, he didn't have to wait too long for an extra thrill. When host Jonathan Ross started to play a game titled "Would I Lie to You?," Crowe somehow, someway brought up the fact that he's never been kissed by Hurley.

What comes next? Well, perhaps you should watch the video above to find out.
