Hurley Gloats, McCartney Gushes

Looks like Elizabeth Hurley is enjoying her autumn in New York. The British paper The Sun has published photographs of the “Bedazzled” star smooching a new beau, fueling talks that the 34-year-old supermodel turned actress has found love again.

The male party in question is film director Steve Bing, who was behind a movie called “Every Breath” back in 1993 (he also executive produced “Get Carter” this year.)

Hurley and Bing were rocking at Elton John‘s concert in New York on Saturday night, where the Sun photographs were snapped.

Hurley was, of course, the longtime lover of Brit actor Hugh Grant. The two amicably ended their 13-year relationship in May, and was seen in an intimate fashion on a Mediterranean vacation together in August.

PAUL McCARTNEY GUSHES: Since we’re in the realm of love, let’s talk Paul McCartney.

Or better yet, let Paul McCartney talk.

The erstwhile Beatles singer has finally piped up about his girlfriend, former model Heather Mills, for the first time.

On the independent British TV program “Stars and Their Lives”, McCartney made a surprise appearance during an interview with Mills and talked about how his new romance had helped him overcome the pain of losing his wife Linda, who died two years ago from breast cancer.

“Obviously, I’d been going through a hard time,” he was quoted as saying by the Guardian newspaper. “Now I’ve got romance back in my life. I love her, and I get a lot of pleasure from that.”

McCartney, 58, and Mills, 32, confirmed their romance back in March after months of whirlwind speculation from British tabloids. The two first met at an awards ceremony.

Mills has been an advocate for the disabled since she lost her leg seven years ago when a police motorcycle hit her in London.
