“For me I found ways to numb the rage and heartbreak I experienced throughout my life. I self medicated with drugs and it actually worked for me for many, many years. For a long time I had no intentions to give that up for anything, but life was going on without me. Both my sisters had children and it was getting harder and harder to mask the shame and guilt I had because I knew it was breaking my father’s heart and that was something I could no longer do.

“I thank god and all my angels that I am a part of this beautiful documentary my sister made. It touches my heart deeply, and it feels so rewarding to see, and be a part of, what a beautiful job Natasha did.
“I’m so, so, so proud of her and I know my mom is beaming in the light of this triumphant story. I just know she is.”
Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind premieres Tuesday, May 5th at 9:00pm ET/PT, exclusively on HBO.
