Martine McCutcheon recreates Love Actually beauty look with fringe and 00s-style brows

Is it really Christmas if you haven’t watched Love Actually at least three times by

Is it really Christmas if you haven’t watched Love Actually at least three times by mid-December? We think not. And one person is truly getting into the spirit of the festive film is actress Martine McCutcheon, who played main character Natalie.

Instagram fans have been taken aback this week by the 45 year old’s youthful looks, shown in new Christmas-themed snaps from her home. Martine doesn’t look like she’s aged a day since she starred in the cult-favourite movie, despite having only been 27 at the time of filming.

With her raven lengths just as glossy as ever and the same style of thick fringe, Martine is serving some serious “deja vu” with her beauty look. Even her style of slim eyebrows remains the same as when she played Natalie in the early noughties – 18 years ago, to be exact.

“Me and my wife just saw ‘Love Actually’ on Netflix and we love it!,” one Instagram follower reminisced in the comment section under the festive photo.

“Just saw Love Actually – still one of my most favourite films and I loved you in it,” said another, while a third wrote: “Loving the hair”.

Others were quick to compliment the star on her incredible figure – something that has clearly taken dedication on her part. Martine has previously confessed to being a big fan of The Cambridge Diet plan and is also an ambassador for the company after revealing it helped her lose 21 inches in total.

She also spoke out this year about health problems that slowed down her weight loss efforts. The former EastEnders star told fans that she’d been living with chronic fatigue syndrome ME since 2011, and has been told by doctors that she has Lyme disease, as well as fibromyalgia, which causes pain all over the body.

Despite her struggles, Martine looks glowing in her recent grid posts. There’s also one thing we can say for sure – she’s still our favourite Love Actually character!
