Elizabeth Hurley Shares Throwback Photo From The Vegas Stripper Pole

Did Elizabeth Hurley spend her youth working as a stripper, as an Instagram photo she posted this week might suggest?

Uh, no. It doesn't look like it. For anyone thinking that "The Royals" star spent her pre-fame days working the pole in Vegas, pay close attention to how she captioned the snap: "Misspent youth? @ellenvonunwerth #vegas #bestmemories."

The 49-year-old tagged iconic photographer Ellen von Unwerth, which means this is a photo from a professional photo shoot (just to make it clear for anyone who couldn't already tell) unearthed from Hurley's younger days, rather than evidence of a side gig she took on while trying to make it as an actress.
