Elizabeth Hurley has maintained her stunning figure with a wide array of controversial diets over the years.
But after new boyfriend Shane Warne revealed he”s lost 22 pounds over the past few months, fans are wondering if his model girlfriend has influenced his diet.
The Australian cricketer showed off his slimmed down physique in a tight T-shirt today as he launched his clothing line in Mumbai, India.

Standing next to svelte Hurley, 45, in tops from his Spinners range, there was no denying Warne looked better than he has done in years.
Although Warne”s manager insisted his new slimline look was down to a health kick of his own decision, many have noticed the sportsman”s more coiffed appearance in recent months.
His manager James Erskine laughed off speculation that diet-conscious Hurley had influenced her boyfriend, insisting the 42-year-old was simply getting fitter so he could match his twentysomething teammates in the Rajasthan Royals.
Erskine said: “He has been on a real fitness campaign since about eight weeks before he went to India.

“When you are 42 and you”re competing against a team of young 20-year-olds, you have to be fit.”
“His weight normally fluctuates but he is in unbelievable form at the moment. I was with him a couple of weeks ago and he said he was down to 82kg (12st 9lbs).”
Apparently Warne shifted the pounds after cutting down fatty food and alcohol in his diet, drinking more water andshakes and his new routine of daily runs and workouts.
Hurley upset dieticians last year when she admitted she skipped breakfast, Tweeting: “Mugs of hot water first thing, maybe an espresso and a few oat cakes mid morning.”

She also was said to have followed a cabbage soup diet to lose her baby weight following the birth of son Damien in 2001.
With his poker playing and past reputation for womanising, Warne has always been known as a “man”s man”.
But the Rajasthan Royals captain revealed on Twitter last month, he was started to spend more time on his appearance and had no qualms about admitting to using Estee Lauder moisturiser – the beauty firm which Hurley models for.
He Tweeted: “Questions re facelift / Botox etc – are absolute rubbish – I am 86kg – lost7kg and are close to being the fittest I have ever been.
“I am alsoeating very healthily and am flattered that people think I lookyounger – I have worked hard over the last 5 months on fitness and lifestyle – it”s far from a quick fix – fitness and being healthy isnow a daily habit – I feel great and never been happier in my life.

“As I said seems hardwork paid off – thanks for all the compliments re looking younger – will keep up my daily routine – big game v KKR tmrw.
“Yes had teeth whitened (18 months ago) – new Estee lauder moisturiser for my skin have made a big difference too – Yes I”m still a man hahaha.”
Warne”s launch came after he and Hurley were the guests of honour at a party thrown by Rajasthan Royals owner Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra.
Shetty has been subjected to rumours she is pregnant with her first child in recent weeks so she took to Twitter to decry them.
She wrote today: “Sick and tired of all the congratulatory msgs and calls,so for the last time “I AM NOT PREGNANT”.all this is so annoying..grrrrrrrrr.”
Meanwhile, Hurley has also been working on her Elizabeth Hurley Beach collection.
She Tweeted today: “:In Bombay, finishing work on sampling 2012 kaftans for my collection. All looking gorgeous. Best fabrics in India & best embroidery.”
Hurley and Warne have been dating on and since at least December, when she was forced to go public about her split from estranged husband Arun Nayar after she was photographed kissing the cricketer.
The Estee Lauder spokesmodel insisted she and Nayar, 46, had separated months earlier, but her husband was said to be upset by the photos.
Hurley and Warne were first linked last July after the model was photographed chatting to the Australian at the Glorious Goodwood Festival.
