If you thought you left Natalie Imbruglia in 1997, never to be seen again, prepare to be disappointed. Russell Crowe has gone and pulled her into the news of 2013 by maybe, possibly getting it on with her while listening to ‘Torn’ and his tracks on the Les Miserables soundtrack.
From The Mirror:
I can reveal Aussie stars Russell Crowe and Natalie Imbruglia got cosy after a steamy night of flirting in LA over Oscars weekend.
And there was also a steamy morning of flirting, which saw the pair gathered around a grand piano in the Gladiator star’s suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
They sang show tunes until daybreak but I hope Natalie threw in a line or two of her hit Torn, too – and some Les Mis from Russell.
A source said: “They were all over one another and doing little to hide their flirting.
“They were being really playful and jokey with one another. You could see they really hit it off.
“They then went back to Russell’s room with some friends where they were partying until broad daylight.
“They were singing really loudly together around the piano, belting out some show tunes, and they looked pretty cosy when everyone left them to it.”
The pair were first seen together at a party last month at Hollywood’s Soho House hotel.
They were spotted flirting at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards, also attended by Robert De Niro and Quentin Tarantino.
I mean, I don’t subscribe the the whole “men and women can’t be friends” cliché, so their relationship could possibly be completely platonic. Probably not, though. I just think this is a bizarre pairing – but I suppose I’d think Natalie Imbruglia with anyone was weird because she’s just so random. Natalie Imbruglia dating a desk chair would probably get the same reaction.
