VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Natalie Wood’s Daughter, Natasha Gregson Wagner, Reveals Why She Believes Robert Wagner On Mom’s Death
Natalie Wood’s daughter, Natasha Gregson Wagner told uInterview that she believed she knows what happened the night her mother disappeared and that Robert Wagner had nothing to do with her death.
Gregson Wagner spoke to uInterview’s Erik Meers about the new documentary, Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind, along with Director Laurent Bouzereau.
“I know what happened, and it’s in the documentary,” she said, teasing that the answers people are looking for about the West Side Story star’s death are found in the new movie.
She went on to say that she wanted to give Wagner “the space to talk about” the night Wood died.
Bouzereau added: “You know the thing that was super important, Erik, was to do a documentary that didn’t feel like an investigation because there’s no need to investigate anything. This was really a story of family, a story of loss, and a story of triumph over loss.”
Plus, if the promise of finding out more about the death of one of Hollywood’s biggest stars is not enough to get you to watch the documentary, Bouzereau explained that the movie is perfectly relatable for people who are struggling during the current pandemic.
“We all experience loss, especially during these very difficult times we’re going through right now,” Bouzereau said. “And I think there’s something very comforting about listening to a tragedy like this, and seeing how family sticks together and holds it together in the face of something as tragic as losing your own mother.”
Gregson Wagner said she hopes people remember her mother “as an empowered courageous woman, who worked really hard on her insides, who was a self-reflective person, who loved her family and her husband, and had a short, but incredibly vibrant and beautiful life.”
Bouzereau added that there is a lesson in the movie for young people:
“I think there’s a message here for a younger generation and younger people, regardless of the fact that they may know or not know who Natalie Wood is, is to have the courage to constantly keep up with your times and constantly change and be courageous and curious of the world.”
