"When you lost people you absolutely love and adore, you're both glorying and you're grieving," a teary, trembling Redgrave said, referencing the recent deaths in her iconic stage family: Redgrave's daughter Natasha Richardson died at 45 from head injuries sustained in a skiing accident in March 2009, while her sister Lynn Redgrave died a few weeks ago at 67 after a long fight with breast cancer. Her older brother Corin died at 70 last month.

"You're grieving because you haven't got them anymore," Redgrave said, "And you're glorying because you're taking in what a gift each of them was."

She said Natasha's widower, actor Liam Neeson, is recovering "like me, I guess -- grieving and glorying."
