              •  "'Please Sir, ease up, redirect your efforts,' wrote the actress Natasha Richardson in a three-page Feb. 1 appeal to Mr. Vallone that was c.c.'ed to Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Senator Hillary Clinton, obtained by The Observer. (Ms. Richardson declined to comment.) '[T]here are many citizens in this city, as well as visitors from all over the world who do not mind being in the presence of other people?s smoke. They are just not as vocal as the righteous anti-smoking brigade, who will not rest until the few beleaguered smokers who remain are relegated to grabbing a desperate fix on a wind blown street corner, or must be content to stay at home and not visit the fabulous restaurants and bars of our city. Since smoking was banned in restaurants a few years ago, the list of places that can accommodate smokers has become very short indeed. I used to go to about 30 restaurants in the city; I now have a short list of about five'", New York Observer, Apr. 9, '01

              •  "Richardson just finished a successful run in the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams' 'A Streetcar Named Desire', where she smoked in the role of Blanche DuBois, finished shooting The White Countess in Shanghai, which called on her to smoke, and can now be seen in the erotic thriller, 'Asylum', playing a chain-smoking woman. 'I think I'm going to have to take a rest from sex-addicted, chain-smoking, alcoholic, crazy ladies for a while', Richardson added with a laugh.", UPI, Aug. 17, '05

'From the end of this month, they are banning smoking in New York bars and restaurants', she says, pulling one of the eloquent grimaces that have made her a hit in recent comedies, notably The Parent Trap.

              •  "is smoking. In public. Clearly relishing the freedom to indulge her habit openly in a packed Berlin hotel room, the English-born actress is bemoaning the oppressiveness of the smoking ban in her adopted home of New York. 'Its impossible,' she complains, in her trademark husky voice. 'I hardly ever go out any more. I always have friends over. Because its misery - going out to stand shivering on the pavement, then everyone starts talking bullshit about how business went up after the ban'", Scottish Sunday Herald (UK), Sep. 4, '05

              •  "Natasha Richardson is beginning to feel like an outcast in her adopted home of New York because the city is clamping down on smokers.

She explains, 'I don't go out as much as I used to because I can't smoke anywhere'. And she admits her husband Liam Neeson is forever trying to encourage Richardson to quit. She adds, 'Sometimes he gets on my case about it and sometimes he's very patient. I don't smoke at home. I really hate smoky atmospheres.
