British actress-model Elizabeth Hurley has turned her back on London living for the sake of her young son Damian.
The Austin Powers star has lived in the British capital for years and bought a sprawling estate in Gloucestershire, England in 2003 so that she, husband Arun Nayar and her seven-year-old son could spend weekends and holidays in the countryside but now Hurley has made a permanent move to the property because Damian thrived away from city life, reports imdb.com.
"I bought a farm about six years ago. We used to do London in the week, with my son at school there, and go every weekend but we got very stressed by it and in the end we just thought, 'It's so beautiful and Damian's so much happier down here'. He loves the fresh air and running around outside, because he was so cooped up in London, so we made the big decision last Easter and moved down there full time," she said.
The 44-year-old initially struggled with the move but she's convinced it was worth it.
"It's a big chance for a city girl, but I love it. It's where my son's supposed to be. It's a little harder for me and my husband but it's worth it," she said.
