Liz Hurley's son admits filming his mum's sex scenes felt 'normal'

Liz Hurley's son admits filming his mum's sex scenes felt 'normal'

Damian Hurley has inherited his mother's love for the movie industry

Signing up for sex scenes is brave as it is, but agreeing to get down and dirty with a fellow actress while your son is sat behind the camera lens surely means that Liz Hurley is downright dauntless.

The Austin Powers actress, 58, said it felt 'liberating' to work so closely alongside her only child, Damian, on his directorial debut which is due to be released later this week.

She is starring in upcoming thriller Strictly Confidential, alongside the likes of CBBC star Georgia Lock, Lauren McQueen, Freddie Thorp, Genevieve Gaunt, Pear Chiravara and Max Parker.

The film follows the journey of a 'haunted' young woman who finds herself 'drawn into a world of seduction, duplicity and betrayal' as she desperately tries to get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding her best friend's suicide.

Take a look at the trailer here:

The seduction part really comes into play during a scene with Pear, as she offers Liz's character a drink before giving her a super passionate snog and sliding off her clothes.

Needless to say, you'll have to watch Strictly Confidential to see how that turns out.

Seen as though you've got a few days of breathing room until it releases on demand and in select US cinemas on 5 April, why don't you sit and stew on the fact that Liz's son Damian is the person who both wrote and directed the raunchy scene?

That's right, the 21-year-old was the one guiding his mother and her co-star on where to put their hands and how to nuzzle into each other's cleavage.

It's an unorthodox approach to family bonding, but very Hollywood all the same.

Although a lot of movie lovers reckon the mother-and-son shooting a sex scene together is pretty weird, both Liz and Damian think there's nothing wrong with it.

The Bedazzled star previously told Access: "The things that his script needed me to do weren't necessarily things I'd always done in movies many times.

"But having him there meant that I felt safe and looked-after, and I knew in (post production) he'd look after me.

"So actually it's kind of liberating to work with your family. I may do it again."

Her son shares the exact same sentiment as his movie star mum and even went as far to say the whole thing felt 'normal'.

The aspiring filmmaker - who counts Hugh Grant, David Beckham, Elton John and Denis Leary as his godparents - revealed that he also is the person behind the camera when Liz is posing for sexy bikini shots to upload to social media.

Speaking to The Times, Damian explained: "I hate to say that it [filming the sex scene] felt totally normal. I don’t know what that says about us.

"It’s business. We don’t think about it for any more than point, press, done, post," he added while discussing snapping pictures of his mum in swimwear.

"I was speaking to a lot of my friends who are also second-generation of parents in the industry," Damian continued.

"They say exactly the same thing: that things to outsiders that may seem totally strange and extraordinary, for us we’ll just have grown up with in everyday life."

How the other half live, eh?

But all in all, it sounds like Liz and Damian had an absolute blast being on set together, although he did acknowledge that the 'power dynamic' between stars and directors can be 'complicated at the best of times'.

He told People: "It was a joy to come to work and tackle each day together.

"We only had 18 days to shoot the whole film, so our twin-like telepathy was invaluable throughout."
