    Natasha Richardson dies after fall on ski slope - Yahoo! Canada News

    NEW YORK - Natasha Richardson, a gifted and precocious heiress to acting royalty whose career highlights included the film "Patty Hearst" and a Tony-winning performance in a stage revival of "Cabaret," died Wednesday at age 45 after suffering a head injury from a skiing accident in Quebec.


    Alan Nierob, the Los Angeles-based publicist for Richardson's husband Liam Neeson, confirmed her death Wednesday night in a written statement.


    "Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha," the statement said. "They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."


    The statement did not give details on the cause of death for Richardson, who suffered a head injury when she fell on a beginner's trail during a private ski lesson at the luxury Mont Tremblant ski resort in Quebec. She was hospitalized Tuesday in Montreal and later flown to a hospital in New York City.


    Her husband was reportedly in Toronto at the time of Richardson's accident filming the movie "Chloe" with Julianne Moore.


    Producers confirmed that Neeson immediately left the Toronto set upon news of his wife's accident.


    Family members were seen coming and going from the New York hospital where Richardson was reportedly taken.


    Vanessa Redgrave, Richardson's mother, arrived in a car with darkened windows and was taken through a garage when she arrived at the Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan's Upper East Side at around 5 p.m. Wednesday. An hour earlier, Richardson's sister, Joely, arrived alone and was swarmed by the media as she entered through the back of the hospital.

    It sounds like Farrah Fawcett is quite ill once again. I read somewhere else that the cancer has metastized to her liver, hopefully that's not the case.

    Poor Farrah, I wish her well. And I also heard that her son was arrested for drugs once again. Just what his mom needs on top of everything else that's on her plate.

    Billy Bob Thornton has a Joaquim Phoenix like melt-down on CBC interview with Jian Ghomeshi. Included in his diatribe-Canadians are like mashed-potatoes-without the gravy. Mr. Ghomeshi forgot his manners and ought to have made BBT feel more at home by throwing a stool at his head.

    My thought when I heard this was that Billy Bob ought to be thankful that we're polite - that's the only reason a group of us (not me personally) will sit through his entire show. I've been to shows by good musicians, and believe me, we know how to whoop it up for quality.

    Personally, if Billy Boob Thorton says negative things about Canadians then they must be true. This guy needs a dose of humilty and reality. How the heck does he even rank a newsstory?
