The Bedazzled star's nine-year-old son Damian is keen to launch his own showbiz career, but Hurley admits she's dubious about allowing him to step into the spotlight.
In a post on Twitter.com she writes, "Oh lord, my son is begging me to find him an agent so he can become a child actor."
Hurley reveals Damian's interest in a stage career was encouraged further when Gossip Girl star Blake Lively took him out for ice cream while his mum was shooting a cameo for the show.
She tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "I was going to wrap late, Blake had wrapped early, and Damian was on the set. She asked, 'Can I take him out?' And they went to the Serendipity ice cream parlour and had a big sundae and a hot chocolate."
