ESTEE LAUDER model ELIZABETH HURLEY is missing ex-lover HUGH GRANT - even though they speak to each other every day.
Sexy Elizabeth, 35, shares an office with foppish Grant at their company SIMIAN FILMS (so named because Hurley thinks Grant looks like an ape) and work projects with actor Hugh, 40, but feels sad that her home feels empty with his possessions gone.
Elizabeth, who split from the NOTTING HILL star in May (00) after 13 years, said, "I've been out with men since, but I compare them to Hugh." (TM/WNTSU/PDD)
