Joely Richardson - Joely Richardson Lost Relationship And Friends After Sister's Death

British actress Joely Richardson went through a series of traumatic life changes following the death of her sister Natasha - her grief prompted the breakdown of her relationship and the loss of many friends.

Natasha Richardson, 45, passed away in 2009 after suffering a traumatic brain injury in a skiing accident in Canada, and the tragedy devastated her younger sister.

The Nip/Tuck star has now revealed she shut herself off from her loved ones, and her sad state of mind led to the loss of her boyfriend, while she also drifted apart from many of her pals.

She tells Britain's Sunday Telegraph, "Tasha leaving us was just absolutely heartbreaking, and it was heartbreaking over a very long period of time. When you are close to someone, your whole take on life is very interconnected, however different you are, which we were.

"Going into restaurants, an airport, a cafe - in a way it was a beautiful thing, that people cared about Tash enough to come up to me - but it was a constant onslaught of something I wasn’t ready to accept for a long time. So I became very private and cut myself off...

"A lot of my friends changed, my relationship went, everything went, life as I knew it.”

The actress admits it took her four years to move on from the tragedy, and she only began to feel better again this spring (13).

She adds, "I suddenly realised that enough time had gone by for me to accept that this was the new way of life and to really start embracing joy. It’s too easy to be a victim, and it’s boring."
