'The Big C's' Laura Linney in More: 'It's a privilege to grow old'

About mortality: "I have a lot of friends who've died way too young. And I'm a little angry about it. It makes me very upset at the whole viewpoint that there's something wrong with aging when it's a privilege to grow old."

About one good friend she lost, actress Natasha Richardson: Richardson's tragic skiing accident in March 2009 "changed all of our lives. Those of us who knew and loved her and benefited from the incredible talent and we'll never be the same."
