Natalie Imbruglia Net Worth $14 million
At a young age, Natalie studied highland, tap, and ballet dancing, hoping to pursue a career in dance. She appeared in various commercials including for Twisties and Coca-Cola, and left school to pursue acting, soon appearing in the soap opera “Neighbours”, in which she stayed there for two years, and then moved to London, subsequently signing a record deal with BMG.
It was then that she released the cover of the Ednaswap song “Torn”; the song would become very popular and would increase her net worth dramatically. It aired at the top on airplay around the world and was number one on the Billboard Airplay chart for 14 weeks. The song sold one million copies in the UK and was released as a single in the United States, breaking numerous records, and it led to her debut album – “Left of the Middle”. The album was certified platinum, after which she would then release the song “Big Mistake”. Other songs including “Wishing I Was There” would not reach the same success as the previous songs, but in 1998, she would receive an MTV Award for Best New Artist and would also get three Grammy nominations. She also won two Brit Awards.
In 2001, she released “White Lilies Island”, co-writing every track on the album. The song “Wrong Impression” would chart, but the other songs barely made any ground. In 2003, the record label refused to release her third album, claiming that it was not radio friendly. She then left, and would sign with Brightside Recordings. In 2005, she released the album “Counting Down the Days”, and the song “Shiver” would become her longest running successful single since “Torn”. She would then go on a European Tour, and worked on a compilation album which would sell 600,000 copies. This continued in helping build her net worth.
Imbruglia started her own label called Malabar Records, and would then collaborate with various artists including Chris Martin and Daniel Johns. She released the song “Want” from the album “Come to Life”, before the album was released in 2009. Afterwards, she would foray into acting again, appearing in three movies and a stage production. One of her latest projects is the album “Male”, and she is planning a tour to promote the album.
For her personal life, it is known that Natalie married Daniel Johns in 2003 but they divorced in 2008. She has also dated actor David Schwimmer. In 2013, she became a naturalized British citizen. Natalie also does various philanthropic work, including modelling for charity.
The couple announced a joint statement saying their marriage is over and they simply grew apart from not being able to spend enough time together. Natalie is based in London and Daniel in Australia. [January 2008]

Recording her 5th studio album (release date to be advised) [July 2008]
I'm still an Aussie girl but Britain is part of who I am. Britain has been good to me - I have roots and history here and a lot of really close friends. I feel very British - I love afternoon tea and crumpets, and running in Hyde Park. I've had many a pint in many a pub all over the country.
I'm quite confident with the way that I look but you find something else to focus on don't you if, I mean I, I have body issues that's my thing so you find something to focus on when you're a perfectionist, I think.
I've always been drawn to the four-leaf clover. It's deeply significant to my sister and me, so much so that we both have had it tattooed on the inside of our wrists.
Since childhood I've always had a tendency to lean towards melancholy. My sisters suffer from it too, so maybe it's a genetic thing. But none of us has ever been on medication.
You're only as good as your last record and you could get dropped.
Generally I can sleep any time, anywhere, any place, unless I'm anxious about work. I can get performance anxiety, so when I'm on tour it can be hard to sleep.
I wasn't naturally drawn to fashion when I was younger but with my work I'm so exposed to what's out there that I'm hoping my style has become a little more sophisticated.
I would have been happy to have waited till I was in my mid- to late-30s before I got married, but you don't choose when these things happen, and when they do, there's no doubt in your mind.
I'm a fan of homeopathy, acupuncture and spiritual healing. In Australia, this is not weird, but when I arrived in the U.K., everyone thought I was a freak.
There are artists who think they have to be on top all the time. I think that would be exhausting.
When I'm in London, I love to visit Kensington gardens and just sit in the park and read a good book.
When I'm passionate about something, I just get excited.
You feel this pressure that people will take you more seriously if you play guitar, but I've decided I'm a singer and that's enough.
You're either too fat or too thin. You just can't win.
It's good to have to put yourself in someone else's skin. It's all-consuming.
It's not very often that I like new bands.
My kitchen bench is covered with vitamins and protein powders. I go through phases when I'm sure I'm taking too many - but I don't get sick often.
My mum said I told her I wanted to be a hairdresser during the week and a star on the weekend and that was when I was really young.
The success of Torn was a bit too much for me. I took a year off and was still scared to start the second album.
I'm a perfectionist.
I'm not a nightclub person, but you need to have a social life sometimes.
I'm such a chameleon. I never get bored.
If I start feeling down I'll gorge myself on pasta. That usually does the trick. It's the Italian blood in me.
Isolation is a big part of songwriting.
I started dancing when I was three, Scottish dancing.
I think where men are credited for being strong, women are divas. I just think it's such a cop out.
I was brought up in an environment where my parents expressed their financial concerns in front of their children.
I wasn't born with a natural talent for songwriting.
I worry unnecessarily.
Happy songs are very difficult to write. How many truly great upbeat songs are there?
I exercise three to four times a week, doing the Tracy Anderson Method, which involves toning and strengthening our small muscle groups.
I have never planned to have babies by a certain age.
I know my music probably isn't going to matter to the public after I die, but that doesn't mean I don't have something to offer.
I seem to have very polite fans, not fanatical ones.
It's much easier to write when you're sad. But you can end up isolated and depressed because you almost need to put yourself in that situation to have that angst to write from.
I've done a lot of partying in my time because I didn't want to go home and I didn't know what to do.
There is no kind way to rip the skin off animals' backs. Anyone who wears any fur shares the blame for the torture and gruesome deaths of millions of animals each year.
Divorce was very sad, obviously, but now I've gotten over it.
Enjoy every moment: you never know when things might change.
I can understand why some people might look at me and say, 'What's she got to be depressed about?' I get that a lot in Britain, where mental health issues seem to be a big taboo.
I am such a bad liar. I would like to lie, though.
I like singer-songwriters, and I find sad songs comforting rather than depressing. It makes you realise you're not alone in the world.
I like the idea of growing old gracefully and full of wrinkles... like Audrey Hepburn.
Saving animals is as simple as choosing synthetic alternatives instead of real fur.
It was only cool to have blonde hair and be a surfer chick [in Sydney]. I could learn how to surf, but I still looked Italian. It took me a long time to realise that was a good thing.
