Seven years after Liam Neeson tragically lost his wife, the actor has revealed he’s now dating an “incredibly famous” woman!
“I’d embarrass her if I said her name, she’s incredibly famous,” the 63-year-old actor said when asked about his love life in a recent interview with the Irish Independent. So how will Liam and his new love be spending Valentine’s Day this year? “It’s amazing how far a simple bunch of freshly picked flowers will go in a lady’s life, I find,” he said.

Liam was previously married to actress Natasha Richardson for 15 years before she passed away at age 45 after suffering a brain injury sustained in a March 2009 ski accident. The couple are parents to two sons, Micheál, 20, and Daniel, 19. “Of course the grief is still there. You do your best,” the Oscar nominee said of losing his wife, adding her death remains a “touchy subject.”
“I had many little letters, beautiful little cards scrawled from people after her death. I still have them and they are very meaningful. It is really touching. In your soul you know that there are people out there caring for you. That means a hell of a lot to me,” Liam added.
