Natalie Imbruglia – who is divorced from rocker Daniel Johns – is looking for love and wants to settle down again
Natalie Imbruglia wants to settle down again.
The Australian singer – who has been romantically linked with actors David Schwimmer and Josh Hartnett, as well as Britain’s Prince Harry since splitting from husband Daniel Johns two years ago – wants to find love again, but admits she hasn’t found anyone special.
She said: “Is love a priority? God, yeah. It just hasn’t been knocking at my door lately.
"It’s not as if it worries me not to have a boyfriend – I’m loving it. But, 100 per cent, I see myself settling down at some point."
The 35-year-old beauty also admits she is open to adoption if she is unable to have children of her own.
She told Australia’s Daily Telegraph newspaper: "You can always adopt. If I couldn’t have my own, I’d do that.
"But listen – I don’t even have a boyfriend, so this is way beyond me at the momnt."
However, the ‘Torn’ hitmaker – who currently splits her time between London, England, and her native Australia – is unsure what impact having a family would have on her life.
She added: “I think when you have a baby, it changes you. I don’t know how I’ll react. Will I take the family around the world with me? Or will I suddenly want to do the white-picket-fence thing?”
Tom Jones’ strong marriage
Veteran crooner Tom Jones insists his 53-year marriage is as strong as ever and he would never leave his wife.
Tom Jones would never leave his wife.
The 70-year-old singer – who married Linda Trenchard 53 years ago – insists that, despite widespread reports of his infidelities over the years, he still has an incredibly strong bond with his spouse.
Tom – whose real surname is Woodward – said: “People are always asking me what makes my marriage work. There's no great mystery to it. We were kids when we met and we were completely in love. We still love each other and we've managed to remain friends too.
“We enjoy each other's company. Walking away from Linda would be unthinkable. We go back too far. I was Tommy Woodward to her then, and I still am. If I start giving it too much Tom Jones she'll remind me who I am.”
The ‘It’s Not Unusual’ hitmaker also said he hates seeing men be “disrespectful” towards women and insists he was brought up to be a gentleman around the opposite sex.
He explained to Live magazine: “People talk about it like it was just notches on the bedpost. But I never treated women like groupies.
“I've always been old-fashioned around the opposite sex. Like I'm careful not to swear in front of them. In Wales we swear all the time but not in front of women. I love a dirty joke but I'd never tell one in female company.”
Dakota Fanning’s comfortable Kristen kiss
Dakota Fanning insists kissing Kristen Stewart for a scene in their new movie ‘The Runaways’ was not awkward, but felt “comfortable”.
Dakota Fanning found kissing Kristen Stewart “comfortable”.
The 16-year-old actress locks lips with the ‘Twilight Saga’ star in their new movie ‘The Runaways’ – in which they play rockers Cherie Currie and Joan Jett respectively – and despite it being her first female kiss, the teenager insists there was nothing awkward about the scene.
She said: “Was it awkward? When you feel comfortable around someone and you have no defences up, that’s when you’re going to be the best. I feel very comfortable with Kristen.”
The ‘Nine Lives’ actress – who shot to fame aged just seven in ‘I Am Sam’ - also insisted she was comfortable with her strict Christian parents seeing the movie, despite its adult nature, because she had been so desperate to take on a role that reflected the fact she is growing up.
She explained: “I wanted to do a different kind of movie because I am getting older and my parents had no doubts about the project whatsoever.
“I think everyone was comfortable because it’s a true story.
“My mom was there on set the whole time. My dad saw it at the Sundance festival and I wasn’t really nervous because I’ve been doing this since I was six, so he’s used to seeing me in different situations.
“He says that when he watched it he didn’t even think it was me because I look so different and Cherie is not who I am in real life.”
