Hurley Booed At Opening Of New Film

Actress-model Liz Hurley was booed by about 200 union protesters as she arrived for a screening of her latest film Bedazzled in the Westwood area of Los Angeles Tuesday night.

Hurley had earlier apologized for appearing in a commercial for Estée Lauder during the actors' strike against advertisers. The lead on today's (Thursday) London Daily Express's report on Hurley's reception reads as follows: "She is used to being greeted like a goddess and enjoying the red carpet treatment bestowed on Hollywood's biggest stars. Yet the reception granted Elizabeth Hurley at the premiere of her latest film was one more usually associated with a convicted criminal."
