[Edition 30] LOS ANGELES, Friday: Liz Hurley has responded angrily to claims by actors that she crossed a picket line by filming an Estee Lauder ad. The Screen Actors’ Guild is protesting against the low wages given to actors in commercials. Hurley’s manager issued the rebuke after numerous union members yelled at her and called her a scab as she launched her new film, Bedazzled.

“According to Liz’s understanding, the picket meant that no-one could act in an commercial, and she obeyed that to the letter,” her manager stated. “If you look at the clip, you won’t see one skerrick of acting.”

Hurley’s manager challenged the Screen Actors’ Guild to produce any evidence whatsoever of Hurley acting.

The Guild later issued an apology, conceding that Hurley had not acted in the advert and adding that it now accepts that Hurley has never acted in her life.

“So far we’ve only watched her efforts in Austin Powers, My Favourite Martian and Passenger 57, but we’re definitely getting the impression that she’s never acted,” said active Guild member Kevin Spacey. “I’d hate to jump the gun before watching Austin Powers II: The Spy Who Shagged Me, but it’s beginning to look like we were wrong.”
