Natalie Imbruglia has used her own experiences for a new movie role - the singer suffers spells of depression.
The Torn hitmaker plays a woman with a mood disorder in forthcoming film Closed for Winter, and the scenes were more than a little harrowing for the Australian star.
She says, "For all my strength, I also have that vulnerable side. There's something - a melancholy, I guess. Sometimes I get a bit down."
Imbruglia insists it's a family trait: "I see it in a couple of my sisters too. We can lean towards that, that melancholy. But we also have the ability to pull ourselves out of it, and some people just don't. That's the difference."
