Elizabeth Hurley Then: Actress Is Unrecognizable In Childhood Photo

Hint: She's ageless.

Elizabeth Hurley is ageless, but when the 50-year-old actress posted a throwback photo of herself as a young girl, we barely recognized her!

On Thursday, Hurley posted a childhood photo to Instagram, which appears to be a school picture. In the shot, the actress is seen sporting a turtleneck and adorable braided pigtails.

In the caption, she wrote, “Was I sweet?” And sweet she was!

In the comments, fans were quick to agree. “OMG! So cute. Priceless,” one said.

Others also noted that the actress was “gorgeous even as a child.”

With such good looks, it’s no wonder Hurley eventually became a model at age 29 – with no prior modelling experience, might we add!

While the model and actress rarely posts photos from her childhood days, she has previously shared images of her 22-year-old self.

Here she is at the start of her acting career in 1988 when she starred in Dennis Potter's miniseries “Christabel.

Considering Hurley’s good genes, it’s no surprise she passed on her model looks to her son Damian. Just last month, the star paid tribute to her son on his 14th birthday by posting this photo to Instagram.

Damian is Hurley’s only child. The actress had him during a brief relationship with businessman and film producer Steve Bing in 2001. Interestingly, Hurley’s ex, Hugh Grant, is the teen's godfather.

Hurley clearly has one good looking family. Let's hope she keeps sharing sweet photos with us on Instagram.
