Elizabeth Hurley's carb shame

Praying for a low-cal snack ... Elizabeth Hurley.

Praying for a low-cal snack ... Elizabeth Hurley.

Elizabeth Hurley has tweeted her head hung in shame after indulging in potato chips.

Shane Warne's fiancee is currently in New York City shooting new scenes for US television show Gossip Girl. Spending long hours on the set of the popular program is clearly taking its toll - and Hurley was feeling famished once the cameras stopped rolling on Wednesday.

After returning to her hotel suite, the actress took to her Twitter account to ask her followers for suggestions on a healthy snack to satisfy her appetite.

"What to eat when it's nearly midnight and you get home from work starving?" she tweeted on Wednesday. "Which isn't fattening, of course ..."

Hurley appeared eager to fill up on low calorie foods before she went to bed.

Her followers were quick to offer advice, with suggestions including an apple, cereal or peanut butter on toast.

However, it seems the 46-year-old star eventually gave into her craving for a salty potato snack and proceeded to raid the goodies on offer in her hotel room.

"Thank u for all your amazing snack tips. I'm hanging head in shame as I devour Pringles from the mini bar... (sic)," Hurley wrote around an hour later.

Her fans were quick to console the actress after her dietary lapse.

"its only a box of pringles u won't die.. Seriously eat what u want, don't worry over silly things.. Not worth it. X (sic)", read one supportive tweet after Hurley had made her confession.

Earlier this week, Hurley admitted she was struggling to cope with the freezing temperatures as she filmed Gossip Girl. In the show, the star plays glamorous villain Diane Payne - and the outfit she was wearing in one scene was causing her some discomfort.

"It's minus 2 but in Gossip Girl land my character wears bare legs, 6 inch heels and a summer coat. Gotta love exterior scenes. Brrrrr," she tweeted. "Uggs, hand warmers and an arctic coat waiting in the wings, luckily (sic)."

  • Ummm... this is not a story.
    There is no shame here at all, it's just a bit of twitter banter.

    Seriously I can't believe you are making a story out of this.
    Although thanks for the picture... she is hot!

      • Warnie might have a recipe like this but it's a real winner in my household
        Bread, Butter and Vegemite Surprize

        Take one slice of white bread from package.

        Put in toaster, plug toaster in and set on medium.

        Wait for toast to pop out of toaster, when it does put it on a plate.

        Holding a knife in your right hand (or left if you are left-handed) scoop butter or margarine from container you had previously opened and smear liberally on toasted bread.

        Unscrew vegemite container and set lid down, with knife get a knob of vegemite from jar and smear on top of buttered bread. (Caution: too much pressure smearing may rip the bread making it unpalatable by leaving the vegemite in blobs rather than an even layer).

        Cut bread either horizontally or diagonally.

        Eat.

        Unlike the mining tax class war this crosses the class divide.
        Perfect for the bogan and supermodel alike

        • Why does this woman and her fiancee feel the need to tell the world their trivial stories? Yawn.

          • Because they have a large following reading their every word on twitter. (Not me though). It is the way of the world, I guess. The mundaneness of this article was slightly amusing.

        • How does someone admit this to anyone? What actions will the UN take to make sure our society is safe from barbaric acts like this? What punishment do we consider to be fair and just? Can this be streamed onto YouTube as soon as possible? I need to see her say sorry and show her shame in moving images.

            • Data-Collection people.

              This is just the media doing what Google, Apple, Facebook, CIA etc. tells them to do.

              An exercise to find out how easily-led human beings really are.

              More of the same will come.
