London: Model-actress Elizabeth Hurley says she has to make more effort to look good now, than she did in her twenties.
The 46-year-old `Bedazzled` star credits getting sufficient sleep as essential for maintaining her youthful looks and says she has had to change all her habits as she has gotten older, reported Daily Mail online.
"I love women looking fabulous and I don`t think growing older means looking less good. For me, it`s less about trying to looking younger and more about making sure you look your absolute best. Without doubt, once I hit 40 I had to make more effort and it wasn`t until then I realised how much easier it was when I was younger," she said.
"Now, I look like a lunatic if I don`t get at least double that. In my 20s I used to be able to exist on coffee, cigarettes and crisps, but again, a couple of days of that now and I`d look and feel really scary!" she added.
Hurley, who has a nine-year-old son Damian from a previous relationship, also said that she constantly thinks about food and claims to eat much more than her fiance, cricketer Shane Warne.
"Shane is very disciplined when he has to be but, bizarrely, I eat at least three times more than him because I`m far greedier and think about food all day long. He`s naturally very athletic because he`s been a professional sportsman for over 20 years. He keeps threatening to make me run with him, but I`ve resisted so far," she added.
