    Please allow Mr. Neeson and his children time to grieve.

  17. 117

    RIP, honey.

  18. 118

    This is so unbelieveably tragic. She was such a beautiful, talented actress. Her husband is such a great actor, and her sons are so gorgeous. I just went skiing the other day, and I tell you… falling while skiing is no joke. I hope people will learn from this experience. WHENEVER you have a fall, small or big, you need to go get yourself checked out. Rest in peace, Natasha.

  19. 119

    ill keep her family in my prayers.

    RIP Natasha

  20. 120

    What a tragedy… My heart and prayers go out to Liam Neeson, their two young sons and the rest of the family and friends…. It is always so mind boggling and upsetting when this happens especially to someone so young and full of life…

  21. 121

    My thoughts and prayers go out the the entire family. Just goes to show tomorrow is not promised.

  22. 122

    This is so tragic. May she rest in piece.

  23. 123

    Re: Veuve Clicquot – Beautifully put, RIP Natasha, we have lost a wonderful actress and a caring, generous lady.

  24. 124

    Very sorry to lose such a wonderful actress. She will be missed..terribly! My sympathies for Liam Nelson and the family. On the other side I'm extremely pissed at TMZ for snapping a pic of grieving Liam and it is now on the site. TMZ sux!

  25. 125

    This is so sad…and so strange…How many of us have just bumped our heads and thought nothing of it before–? :(

  26. 126

    my god how absolutely tragic this story has been from beginning to end. i was praying that the media was exaggerating her condition, but sadly they were not. she was such a lovely lady. my heart absolutely breaks for liam and their two young sons. what a huge loss. for all of us. rip natasha.

  27. 127

    My heart aches for Natasha Richardson and her family. She has been in my thoughts and prayers since I heard about her accident and she will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers, as well as her family. I feel so incredibly sad for her husband and her boys. I hope they take comfort in knowing she will forever be in a better place and they will see her again one day. She was such a beautiful person and will be greatly missed. RIP Natasha Richardson :(

  28. 128

    This is unspeakably tragic. Natasha was a great actress and a great person who was taken so early. My thoughts go out to the entire family, her children and her mother in particular. Natasha, we loved you in films, we loved you on Broadway, and we loved you on the west end. But we still love you. We will always love you. Rest in peace.

  29. 129

    Re: P.Hilton – and the purpose of your email to perez was????? if you don't like the way he writes things then stop coming to his web-site, yeah? ;)

  30. 130

    We've lost a Tony winning actress yet this fucktard blogger remains. The Lord's ways ARE a mystery.

  33. 133

    R.I.P. Very sad to hear about this.

  34. 134

    she was the shiz in parent trap.. thanks for all the updates. the same thing happened to my grandfather, he fell off a golf cart and poof he was brain dead, i miss him as i'm sure her family will miss her but it will get easier. i love you perez, you're awesome!

  36. 136

    "RIP" is so cold. There are nicer ways of saying it.

  37. 137

    OMFG! Along with the rest of the world I am shocked and deeply saddened by the loss of such a beautiful, talented and caring woman. It is always so heartbreaking to hear of such an untimely demise.
    I think there is a lesson here for everyone - that we are all mortal beings, life is precious and fragile and any one of us can be struck down - at any given moment. Life is really 'way too short. We should all live one day at a time - and recognize that any of our precious relationships can be negated - anywhere - any time. Tonight - everyone kiss your kids - embrace your parents - cherish your siblings………
    My deepest and most heartfelt condolences to all of Natasha's loved ones….

  38. 138

    such an odd thing. i had a snowboarding accident like this two years ago. it seems like it was just her time to go. i am SO SAD for her whole family and i really hope that they get the privacy that they deserve.

  39. 139

    Heaven just received its most beautiful angel. RIP Natasha.

  40. 140

    and she was AMAZING as sally bowles in CABARET

  41. 141

    Re: KerrForThree – i bang my head on my keyboard everytime i come to this site.. i should probably stop.

  42. 142

    RIP Natasha sweet Angel.
    OK Now:
    I see you pulled yourself away from Zac's hairless crotch to report the news late again. Teddy emailed me and said he tried to post the news, but you kept him busy fetching Hello Kitty crotchless panties. Meanwhile you had your mom and sis running the site as aj pointed out eating pancakes and watching American Idol. All the while news was happening. Journalist? NOT! You aren't doing this for free - get your stank a$$ back to work. ~~

  43. 143

    Perez, i've read this news on TMZ… HOURS AGO

    that being said… this is soooo sad. My prayers go to Natasha and her family.

    RIP Natasha

  44. 144

    may God be with her family in this tough time and may her soul rest in peace. poor thing :(

  45. 145


  46. 146

    This truly is such a sad story….I am heartbroken for her husband and her two sons…her mom and her sister….truly so sad.

  47. 147

    God bless Natasha Richardson.
    Condolences to her husband Liam Neeson and to their 2 young boys.
    She was not only incredibly talented theater/movie actress, but also a humanitarian who devoted herself to making our Earth a better place. And she was a delightful gentle humble human being.

  48. 148

    It's so sad, she leaves 2 young children. She was so pretty and so young.

  49. 149


  50. 150

    Such a tragic death for a young, beautiful woman from one of Britain's great theatrical dynasties. My thoughts go out to her entire family, particularly her two sons and Liam. RIP.

    On another quick note …why are the negative bloggers towards Perez on here in the first place (particularly an article such as this)??? Are you so pathetic that your life revolves around putting Perez down? Your comments are not funny - just retarded …and annoying for others who enjoy reading perezhilton.com.
    Socially inept peeps.

  51. 151

    My condolences to Mr. Neeson and his family.

  52. 152

    I would give ANYTHING to switch Natasha Richardson with Perez Hilton. A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G!

  53. 153

    I feel sorry for the family, May you rest in Peace Natasha

  54. 154

    rest in peace beautiful.

  55. 155

    TMZ and the news sites had this posted way before you - wake up Perez

  56. 156

    Lighting a memorial candle for Natasha Richardson.
    May her beautiful soul rest in peace.

  57. 157

  62. 162

    Heartbreaking and devastating. Big love to her family in their time of grief, sad as to how long and drawn out this process was via the media and now with official word hopefully everyone can get peace out of this.

  63. 163

    Rest in peace Natasha! May your soul rest peacefully with the Lord!

    This is absoloutely tragic. :( I've been following this story since the very begining, and it breaks my heart to hear of her death. My heart goes out to Liam, their children and the rest of her family and friends. Such a beautiful person, who was far too young to die. She will be missed by all. Rest In Peace, Natasha.

  69. 169

  80. 180

    How many more people will die before they make it a LAW to wear a helmet when skiing? This makes me sick…this woman had her whole life ahead of her! I am SO sad for her family! It all could have been prevented if these ski resorts made it MANDATORY to protect your head! Maybe this will change things????

  81. 181


    - gothic

    - the handmaid's tale

    - the parent trap

    such a lovely, versatile actress

    Thanks for choosing such a nice photo.

    I hope the press will leave them alone for awhile.

  87. 187

    Very heartbreaking. I feel very sad for her husband and sons - her whole family. I hope they will provide some details as to the type of head injury she had, so people can understand when they need to have something checked out that doesn't seem serious at the moment. You just never know.

  88. 188

    …………….soooo sad

  89. 189

    SO SAD..Such a good person, mother, devoted her life to charity. Terrible. IT's always the good one's that suffer. I can think of a few celebs that I'd rather see gone…(hmmm Madonna, Paris, JHo) sorry I know i sound mean but it's true. Im sure lots of people would agree. Well maybe not you Perez.

  90. 190

    Sad Sad Sad. RIP.

  91. 191

    Oh wow.. I just saw Liam's new movie today.. This is terrible.. May God Bless this family.

  92. 192

    R.I.P. Natasha! You were a great Actress. I enjoyed watching your movies. My thoughts go out to the family!

  93. 193

    Re: Kate27 – True that! One can only hope… balance and journalistic integrity is shot out the window around here. To be expected :) … lol

  94. 194

    I thought she died yesterday afternoon?
    Oh yeah that was just Perez being an unreliable ass, taking stories from stupid sources with NO proof.


  95. 195

    RIP…this is just so sad……

  96. 196

    Re: LusciousLiz – You are completely correct !!!

  97. 197

    It's nice to see how many nice comments have been posted and it shows how many hearts were touched by this story. I'm deeply saddened that Natasha died - I always felt like she'd pull through. I'm totally shocked and devastated. I pray that her husband children and family find comfort in knowing what a wonderful women she was. RIP x

  98. 198

    I remember seeing Natasha in the movie "Nell" with Liam Neeson and Jodie Foster. There was something so very unique and different about her. I could never forget her. She was so beautiful. She was shining.
    This is so terrible.
    Deepest regrets to her young sons, her husband Liam Neeson and especially her extraordinary mother Vanessa Redgrave and aunt Lynn Redgrave.

  99. 199

    Rest in Peace.

  100. 200

    May god be with her and her family, how horrible for them. I love you Perz, just one thing, please check the facts before posting. You stated RIP long before she was gone! I wish you the best. And, will always enjoy you in my down time…all day long! I come to you for the facts and I truly respect your wanting to be on top of it all, but please, be on top of it all!
