It's hard to believe that Love Actually is already 10 years old! The now-holiday classic hasn't aged a day, and neither has British beauty Martine McCutcheon — the actress who plays Natalie, aka "Plumpy," the lovable, foul-mouthed aid to the new Prime Minister, played by then-heartthrob Hugh Grant.
Martine, now 37, was spotted on December 13 in London after a guest appearance on British daytime show This Morning, where she taped segment called "Martine's Merry Must-Dos," dishing all about her family's festive holiday traditions. The actress looked winter-chic in black pants, a beige wool coat, and an adorable pom pom beanie.
While Martine looks and feels fantastic now, the past few years haven't been so kind to the England native. Not only did she suffer from a variety of health issues including depression and chronic fatigue syndrome, but she also racked up an inordinate amount of debt and was forced to file for bankruptcy. But things are finally looking up for the former EastEnders star, and Martine's even thinking about trying for a baby with hubby Jack McManus.
"It's what I want more than anything, but I'd been so scared that I wouldn't be able to," she revealed in an interview with HELLO! last month. "I thought, 'How can I bring a baby into the world when I'm not well enough to look after myself?' Now I feel I could."
We're so excited about Martine's plans to become a mom — we just hope she leaves herself enough time for that rumored Love Actually sequel!
