“She (Natasha) would have a plan on arrival anywhere and would be carving the best out of life and every situation and every person," Fox News quoted Thurman as telling the magazine. She added: "She wasn"t as much a passenger as I am, which made us great companions in life … because every driver needs a passenger … and every passenger needs a driver. So it"s a big loss in my life."
Richardson's sudden death has inspired Thurman to make sure she lives her life to its fullest. The 39-year-old actress, who was married to and shares two children with actor Ethan Hawke, is all set for a London wedding to British tycoon/philanthropist Arki Busson.
Thurman said: “Isn"t life amazing? Isn"t life full of surprises? When it comes to things like marriage, you just never know. I find that growing up has been all about realizing that life gets more serious, and that it"s also really important to increase your sense of humour."
