London, October 6 : English model Elizabeth Hurley has been 'heartbroken' ever since her close pal and legendary actor Paul Newman passed away.
The duo, who were nominated for Oscars and Baftas for their performance in 'Cat On A Hat Tin Roof', admired each other for their distinct qualities.
"She hasn't been as heartbroken since her former boyfriend and fellow actor Rod Steiger died in 2002," the Daily Express quoted her friend as saying.
The friend said: "Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor had been friends for years. She liked his honesty and he her sense of humour."
Actress Madeleine Sherwood said: "When Paul and Elizabeth walked on set, you could hear the intake of breath - they were that beautiful together."
Another Taylor friend, Little Women co-star Margaret O'Brien, said: "Elizabeth is feeling sad that there aren't many of the greats left. Those who are hanging in there, such as Kirk Douglas and Dorothy Malone, are in some cases pretty frail."
