Elizabeth Hurley's flirting puts her in hospital

Elizabeth Hurley's flirting has landed her in hospital "half a dozen" times.

The 50-year-old actress has admitted she turns on the charm when she's around people but sometimes her cheeky gestures get so out of hand that she requires medical help.

Speaking on NBC's 'Late Night' she said: "I flirt with anyone--man, woman, animal, inanimate object. Anything to get the party going. If I flirt or fancy someone, I show off a bit sometimes and sometimes I get a little clumsy and I've actually hurt myself a few times. I've been to the emergency room probably half a dozen times for flirting."

The 'Royals' star once suffered a broken ankle after she tried to look "cool" in front of a man but, instead, ended up getting her foot wedged down a rabbit hole and smashed her face.

Blushing, she explained: "He couldn't really carry me so I had to be over his shoulder--fireman's lift."

But the clumsy accidents aren't just limited to that as the brunette beauty was also struck with concussion after she attempted to "scissor jump" into a hammock on to an attractive gentleman but, missed the cotton chair, whacked her head on the ground and knocked herself out.

Elizabeth was previously married to entrepreneur Arun Nayar and has dated the likes of cricketer Shane Warne and actor Hugh Grant.

The actress, who is currently single, also has son Damian, 13, with her ex-boyfriend businessman, Steve Bing.
