Liz Hurley has spoken about the reaction to her son directing her in a sex scene in his debut film, Strictly Confidential.

Damian Hurley’s movie sparked controversy after it was revealed he would direct his mother during an intimate scene.

In the thriller, Georgia Lock plays Mia who investigates the death of her friend, Rebecca. Liz plays Rebecca’s mother in the film.

During a recent appearance on The One Show, Liz said she thought the reactions to the sex scene have been “demented”.

The actor said she and her son “didn’t even think” about the scene ahead of shooting because of how “low budget” the film was, adding that they needed to “shoot fast”.

She continued: “Damian had about six or seven scenes to film that day. This was just one of them.

“People have made a fuss. It’s not like he sneaked into my bedroom with a camcorder. It was on a set, there were like 100 people on set and everyone knows [sex scenes] they’re not actually sex to shoot.

“Any kind of intimate scene, it’s just technical.”

Earlier this month, Damian told the Sunday Times that directing his mother in the film’s sex scene felt “totally normal”.

He explained: “I was speaking to a lot of my friends who are also [the] second generation of parents in the industry.

“They say exactly the same thing: that things to outsiders that may seem totally strange and extraordinary, for us we’ll just have grown up with in everyday life.”

Reviews for the film have so far been mixed. In a two-star review, The Guardian said: “Once you get to the big reveal, you feel like you’ve sat through a hundred episodes of a saucy daytime soap with the saucy bits cut out.”

The Telegraph gave the film one star and described it as “more Austin Powers than Agatha Christie” while The Times was more favourable, saying it had some “bizarrely compelling moments”.
