The newly liberated actress and hunky heartthrob look flirty while filming in New York

The newest edition to the cast of Gossip Girl, Elizabeth Hurley, 46, can be seen here on set in New York City with her young co-star, Chace Crawford. Hurley, pictured in a curvy red dress with a low neckline, will play “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with,” according to executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran.

Earlier this year Hurley filed for divorce from her husband, Indian businessman Arun Nayar. Since then, the actress has reportedly been dating Australian cricketer Shane Warne and has said she feels liberated. "It helps to be open to new things. Some close off and become more insular as they grow older, for me it's the other way. I care less what people think. It's liberating," Hurley told Grazia magazine.
