“She was just like a second mother to me. She was an angel. She was like Grace Kelly and Princess Diana – she exuded that. I’m friends with her son, Mike Neeson.

I just learned how to carry myself by just being around her.” Lindsay Lohan praises late actress Natasha Richardson, who played her mother in the hit 1998 film The Parent Trap. Richardson passed away after suffering a traumatic brain injury in a skiing accident in 2009.
