Elizabeth Hurley felt "safe and looked after" filming sex scenes with her son Damian Hurley directing.

The 58-year-old actress has some spicy moments with actress Pear Chiravara in the upcoming thriller 'Strictly Confidential', and she has admitted having her 21-year-old son in the room with her put her at ease.

She told Access Hollywood in a joint interview with her son: “Having him there meant that I felt safe and looked after.

“It’s kind of liberating to work with your family.”

The model has also helped his mother shoot bikini snaps on Instagram, which caused a stir.

Damian said: “People find this really controversial.

“[Showbiz] has been a fundamental part of my entire life so for us it’s just not a thing, it’s part of business.”

Elizabeth insisted: “I’m relaxed in front of him.

“He looks after me…it’s relaxing knowing someone is behind the camera who looks out for you.”

Damian encouraged the 'Austin Powers' star to pose in swimwear on social media - despite the chilly weather in England.

Speaking on 'PeopleTV' in 2021, she said: "Well, it was challenging because I didn't leave the country for anywhere hot. I filmed abroad, but I actually filmed in really cold countries. So all I had was my yard and my house, which is England.

"I didn't have the beach, I didn't have the sea, I don't have any water. We very rarely have the sun."

Speaking of her son, she said: "He said, mom, 'Just do it.' Okay. I'm like, 'Okay.' But it's good. I had him on task, especially during lockdown."
