Elizabeth Hurley's co-star in upcoming film METHOD has leapt to her defence
- after director Duncan Roy launched a blistering attack on the British
OLIVER THOMAS, who shot to fame after starring opposite Joan Collins in
THE STUD, was horrified to her Roy's account of working with the Austin Powers
beauty - in which he rubbished her acting skills, described her as a diva and
told of her
trailer sex romps with lover Arun Nayar.
And the chivalrous 54-year-old is keen to set the record straight.
He fumes, "Is this man a pervert? What type of person goes around
listening at people's trailers? What's wrong with this man? It's creepy. I am
flabbergasted at his remarks.
"Far from her treating her co-stars with contempt, the first thing Liz did
when I arrived was to offer me a cup of tea for which I was very grateful.
"She is a lady. She is a consummate professional. I cannot understand this
flak being directed at her, especially as she recommended Roy for the job."
