By: Matt Donnelly / March 18, 2009

Lindsay Lohan has spoken out on the tragic death of Natasha Richardson, who costarred with 22-year-old in her breakout Disney film The Parent Trap.

“She was a wonderful woman and actress and treated me like I was her own,” Lohan said in a statement, “I didn’t see much of her over the years but I will miss her.”

“My heart goes out to her family. This is a tragic loss.”

Lohan was 12 when she starred in the update of the 1961 family farce, with Richardson playing her stylish British mother.

Liam Neeson
, Richardson’s husband, released a statement earlier today via his publicist, confirming the loss of Natasha to severe brain trauma stemming from an injury on Monday.

She was 45.
