This husky-voiced funny girl is about to get reeaalllll serious — about Broadway, that is!!!

Emma Stone is reportedly in talks to star in the much-anticipated revival of Cabaret!

Um, yes please!!!!

If Emma is in fact cast, she would take on the iconic role of Sally Bowles — the American underground club singer with a drama-filled life that stirs the plot.

The actress would be filling the glamorous shoes of former Sallies including Judi Dench, Natasha Richardson, and — YES — LIZA MINELLI!!!!!

Sounds like a far cry from Gwen Stacy, but we know our uber-talented gurl crush can do it.

Better start resting up those vocals sweetie-pie because they would be crazy to NOT hire you!!!

Liam Neeson Opens Up About Losing Natasha Richardson

| Filed under: Sad SadNatasha Richardson

We can't imagine the pain that Liam Neeson must still feel after having lost his wife, Natasha Richardson, in that shocking ski accident two years ago. He's been rather private about the ordeal, handling his grief without the involvement of the press, but this week, for the first time, he's opening up about his loss.

In the March issue of Esquire, Liam recounts the horrible day of Natasha's accident and explained how he almost didn't get to spend her precious last moments together. He explained:

"I walked into the emergency — it's like seventy, eighty people, broken arms, black eyes, all that — and for the first time in years, nobody recognizes me. Not the nurses. The patients. No one… So I went outside. It's freezing cold, and I thought, What am I gonna do? How am I going to get past the security?"

Luckily, a nurse who was on her smoke break finally did recognize Liam and escorted him to Natasha right away. It was there that a group of "young doctors" gave him the "worst" news of his life. Liam reveals that in order to escape the pain after her death, he threw himself into work. He added:

"It's easy enough to plan jobs, to plan a lot of work. That's effective. But that's the weird thing about grief. You can't prepare for it. You think you're gonna cry and get it over with. You make those plans, but they never work…It hits you in the middle of the night — well, it hits me in the middle of the night. I'm out walking. I'm feeling quite content. And it's like suddenly, boom. It's like you've just done that in your chest."

Poor man. He misses her so much - probably always will. It was really brave of him to come forward like this. Maybe talking about it more will help ease some of the pain.

Our thoughts are still with you, Liam, and your boys.

And her ex-husband speaks very highly of her! How often does that happen?

It's been over a year since poor Natasha Richardson was tragically taken from her children and husband, Liam Neeson, but it seems like Liam is taking the first steps into letting love back into his life.

Liam was spotted earlier this moth with Frya St. Johnston, a U.K.-based public relations executive. The couple were holding hands and looked generally happy. We're told the like Liam, Frya has two young children and according to her ex-husband, she is a "wonderful person and a fantastic mother."

Two very important qualities, for sure.

As for Liam, sources close to the actor say that he is being very cautious about dating again and that his primary focus remains on his two boys.

As it should be, but Liam, we're sure Natasha would want you to be happy. Don't sell yourself short. Only got one life!

This is touching.

Natasha Richardson will be honored at the amfAR Gala on February 10 with her mother Vanessa Redgrave, actress Meryl Streep and amfAR founding chairman Dr. Mathilde Krim taking part in the tribute.

Redgrave and Natasha's sister Joely Richardson are co-chairing the event.

Natasha Richardson was on the board of trustees since 2006 and was a passionate advocate for AIDS research as her father Tony Richardson died from AIDS-related complications back in 1991.

The black-tie event and auction will include performances by Lady GaGa and Rufus Wainwright.

Natasha left behind her husband Liam Neeson and their two sons Michael and Daniel after suffering a fatal brain injury while skiing in Quebec.

So sad.

Joely Richardson Speaks On Her Sister's Death

It's almost been a year since the untimely passing of Natasha Richardson.

Now her sister, Nip/Tuck's Joely Richardson is opening up about how she has dealt with the death.

The day after Natasha's funeral Joely went right back to work. She explains: "A strange autopilot kicks in; your psyche puts your work day into a different compartment from your private life. I’m not kidding — my first shot back on set was reacting to someone dying.”

Joely goes on to say:

"The shock shatters you on a cellular level, and it takes time for the pieces to come back together, albeit in a different formation. So much of what I am is who Tasha was, and I think, sharing all those formative years, there is level of merging. . . I cannot imagine that there will ever be a day when I don’t think of Tasha.”

Sad.

Now Joely has made plans to move to New York with her daughter Daisy for two months to be closer to her sister's two sons with husband Liam Neeson.

Hopefully seeing a little bit of Natasha in the kids will help the healing process.
