Question: Was Jennifer Lopez an actress before she was a singer, or a singer before she was an actress?

OK, trick question there, she was a Flygirl dancer before both.

The point remains, Natalie Imbruglia has some ‘xplainin’ to do.

Imbruglia, the voice of one of the finest songs of the 90s, “Torn,” plans to star in a film project of her own making, Elise in her homeland of Australia as soon as she finds the time off. Link

This doesn’t necessarily equal a bad thing but when a person jumps in with two feet into something she’s never professionally attempted – acting and screenplay writing both in this case – it does not inspire confidence. That is usually done in private where we don’t have to experience the painful process along with her. Of course it could kick ass.

And what about the new music? We’ll come back to that sometime soon.

    I have to admit, I’ve always had sort of a soft spot for Natalie Imbruglia.

    As far as singers-turned-actresses, have you seen Bjork’s fucking brilliant performance in Dancer in the Dark?

    But acting and writing sounds like a risky proposition. Who knows, though, she could be fantastically multi-talented.

  • Bob A. Booey

    She covered/stole the glory for “Torn,” a song written by Anne Previn, a Harvard grad who recorded it earlier in the 90s.

    It’s still a good guilty pleasure song, though. I like that guitar solo.

    That is all.

    didn’t Imbruglia act in an aussie soap-opera before she hit it big with ‘Torn’?

  • Bryan McKay

    Indeed she did, Mark. I remember reading this somewhere, but I had forgotten until you brought it up. She’s also done two other minor film roles as well, apparently. You can check out her entry on IMDB.

  • Jeffrey Rollin

    Natalie Imbruglia was an actress before she became a singer (though whether “starring in a soap opera” – Australia’s “Neighbours” – and “acting” can be used in the same sentence is, I suppose, a subject for debate).

  • Temple Stark

    Well if that’s all true than I officially suck.

    Kylie was in Neighbors for a long time. If Natalie was it was after I stopped watching (or was stopped from watching by moving out of country).

    Natalie woz in Neighbours for 2 yrs and den she did sum uver small acting things b 4 singing.
    a couple ov yrs ago she co-starred alongside Rowan Atkinson in Johnny English, so she should b quite good in dis film she’s doin but its gona b a small fing so i dunno if we will get 2 c it over here coz its getin made in Aussie land.

  • Tan The Man

    Natalie sure is a cutie.

  • Rick

    Yes I hope she will do great. I enjoyed her part in Johnny English. She was Lorna Campbell there. Never saw her in Neighbours though. She is a great singer too – Torn, Big Mistake and Shiver are great songs and all her albums are fantastic.
