As Broadway prepares to dim its lights Thursday night in her memory, the shock and sadness over Natasha Richardson's untimely death is still settling in among the theatrical and filmmaking communities, with reactions pouring in from both sides of the Atlantic from several generations of fellow performers, including Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench, Jane Fonda and Lindsay Lohan.

"For everyone who knew and loved her, Natasha's death is a terrible, devastating loss. She was a star. A great actress, a beautiful woman, a fiercely loyal friend, a brilliant and generous companion," said Fiennes, 46, a longtime friend who costarred with Richardson in 2001's Maid in Manhattan. "She was an adoring and loving wife and mother. She was unique. My thoughts and prayers go out to Liam and her beautiful sons, Michael and Danny and to all her family. I cannot imagine a world without her wit, her love, her mischief, her great, great talent and her gift for living. I loved her very much. She was a supreme friend. I shall miss her deeply."

There were scores of stars at Monday's night screening of Smart People, but Jane Fonda only had eyes for boyfriend Lynden Gillis.

The 70-year-old screen star and Gillis, a retired businessman, were nearly inseparable at the dinner – cohosted by Allure editor Linda Wells and Cinema Society – held at New York's Bowery Hotel.

While Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick and Dennis Quaid mingled, Gillis, 75, remained at Fonda's side – first over drinks at the bar and then on a secluded outdoor patio. (The actress has said the distinguished-looking Gillis – who was previously married to Fonda's college roommate – resembles both her father, Henry Fonda, and Clint Eastwood.)
