Sorry to be maudlin, and I wasn't president of her fan club or anything, but I was very saddened by the news of Natasha Richardson's death. Unlike the Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman and Paris Hiltons of the world, she never seemed to court media attention to a nauseating degree. Rather, she seemed happy to work when she wanted and spend time away from the screen with her family. Her fifteen-year marriage to Liam Neeson was never fodder for the tabloids. And she was a good actress too (of what I saw of her).
She was a classy woman who set an example for other actresses to follow and I'm sorry for her loss, and my thoughts go to her family.
