Jennifer took to commenting back regarding the issue and said, "Wow. I don't really know where to get started on this. This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended. That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf? I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice." 

Apart from her fashion views, Elizabeth Hurley also remarked on her ex Hugh Grant opening up about their relationship and calling himself 'an idiot' for his behavior. As reported by E! Online, she said, "I didn't know he said that I mean he is, of course, an idiot," she joked.

You know, he's now a father of five, he has five kids and he's a great dad. Yeah, he'll remain my best friend for life," Hurley continued.
