"It's not something I've ever felt would make much difference in my life," reveals the statuesque actress-model in Glamour. "Since the day we met, I've always lived as if I were married.
"Hugh and I drive each other demented half the time, but he really is my best friend," adds Hurley, who clearly has gotten past Grant's very public indiscretion with a Hollywood hooker back in 1995. "If we don't talk to each other for a day, it's torture. And if we split up, I'd feel like my brother had died. It takes a lot to come to terms with feeling that way about someone. If you've got it, hold on to it."
Hurley, who's currently shooting a remake of the 1967 Peter Cook/Dudley Moore comedy Bedazzled, also mentions that she and her beau do not expect to start a family anytime soon. "How am I going to give children a stable upbringing when I'm so unstable myself?" says Hurley, 34. "I find it hard to organize getting my legs waxed, let alone arrange nanny schedules. Something has to give."
