London: Elizabeth Hurley has tweeted that it was hardly a secret she worked for Estee Lauder – apparently meant to address reports that she could be in trouble for plugging products on the microblogging site.

The British actress is reported to be one of the high-profile celebrities who could be investigated for allegedly endorsing products on Twitter without disclosing their relationship with brands.

But the 45-year-old posted a message on her Twitter page on Tuesday, saying that she has been a public spokesperson for the cosmetics company for years, reports the Daily Star.

“It`s hardly a secret that I work for Estée Lauder – I`ve modelled for them for 17 yrs (sic)! Love telling you about their products – they`re the best,” she tweeted.
