  • Quotes

    • Natalie: I'm too busy to focus on that. I love children but it doesn't fit my lifestyle right now. I cried when my sister had a baby a few weeks ago. Just seeing pictures of this little girl in the family and knowing I'd never get to hold her while she was that fresh out of the oven.

    What can I say ... a stunner!

    Natural beauty that shines. Natalie is the type of person you cannot turn away from. (Perfect for makeup ads)



    Excellent personality that we rarely get to see as she seems to always been hiding away in England recording or preparing for a new album.



    From what I have seen of her acting she is quite good but that was years ago now on Neighbours. I also seen her in a movie a few years back but nothing really stands out to remember about it.



    She is really into her music which I really enjoy listening too.



    From Neighbours to now she has come a long way.moreless
