Elizabeth Hurley is no stranger to posing in a bikini on social media, but there is a reason behind her many two-piece snapshots.

“I have my own swimwear line,” Hurley, 55, explained in a recent interview with the syndicated TV magazine, Extra.

“I wouldn’t ordinarily be prancing around in quite so much beachwear, so there is a reason behind prancing around in so many swimsuits,” she noted to the outlet.

Hurley is the designer behind her own beachwear line called Elizabeth Hurley Beach.

Citing the coronavirus pandemic, Hurley added: “We haven’t been allowed to go on vacation in 14 months… I have a beachwear company and haven’t been on the beach… Hence, we have been selling what we can. We’ve been improvising. So, yes, we’ve been on hay bales, we’ve been in the snow, we’ve been in the shower.”

Of the naysayers, the actress doesn’t let them get to her. “I think people are mean to women and I don’t think it’s how people should be, so I can’t say I am a fan of those comments, really,” she stated.
