Liam Neeson doesn’t drink or date these days

liam neeson

Liam Neeson is a pretty awesome guy, right? He’s a great actor and generally seems cool – especially considering how well he’s done to bounce back following the sudden death of his longtime partner Natasha Richardson back in 2009. It wasn’t always easy, and he certainly went through his dark days of too much alcohol, but now he’s alcohol-free… and not all that concerned with meeting someone new.

I’m very happy.
I’m glad you like that wine. It’s a very light Pinot Noir. But I gave up drinking about a year ago.

What made you decide to do that?
Well, I was just—I was drinking too much. It started since my wife died. It was like, so easy to just… Never at work, never would do it like that, but this time of night? Sitting with you, I’d easily have—I’d be on my second bottle. Before we finished, I would have been halfway down a third—and be totally fine! Pinot Noir: That’s all I drink. I was never into spirits or liquor, hard liquor. And I gave up the Guinness years ago, because it just—past an age, it sticks to you, you know? So last year, I just thought—they’ve been throwing these action movies at me, and I thought, “Okay, let’s just change it a little bit.” And it’s been great. I love it. [knocks on wood]

Will you date again? Are you dating?
I’m keeping myself to myself. And I like it that way. I’m not hunting. I’m the opposite of a—what would a male cougar be? Is there such a thing? Whatever it is, I’m not that.

It’s great that he was able to pull himself back before his drinking problem got too serious. Also, I can’t help but feel for him on the relationship front. Losing your partner has gotta be tough, to say the very least.

Liam Neeson reveals a sad new fact about Natasha Richardson’s death


We all remember when Natasha Richardson suddenly passed away after a skiing accident in 2009, and no one knows the sting of that tragedy more than her partner, Liam Neeson. He appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live this week, where he discussed an interview he gave with 60 minutes following Natasha’s death – an interview he says left out a very important detail.

“We got hundreds – maybe a couple thousand – sympathy cards, emails and stuff from all over the world, especially America,” he recalled.  “Not one from that ski resort.”

That’s really terrible, and seems bad form, to be honest. After such a terrible tragedy, the least they could do is send a sympathy card. Clearly even such a small gesture would have meant a lot.

PHOTOS: Liam Neeson will be in the ‘Entourage’ movie. HELL YES!

Liam Neeson & Jeremy Piven Film 'Entourage' In West Hollywood

‘Entourage’ is back, baby! The HBO show went off the air in 2011, but it’s coming back and this time around Liam Neeson is joining the fun!

Here are some new photos from the set of ‘Entourage’ which is filming in Los Angeles.

In the photos, Piven, 48, pulls up next to Liam Neeson, 61, in his flashy red Ferrari, and with just a few (most likely explicit) words, entices the “Taken” star to flip him the bird.

Although previously unannounced, Neeson’s cameo should come as no surprise to fans of the HBO comedy, where guest appearances from A-listers like Kanye West, James Cameron and Scarlett Johansson were frequent.

Piven will be joined by the rest of the original cast from the HBO comedy for the movie, which will act as a continuation of the story of Adrian Grenier’s Vincent Chase and his crew of buddies.

“Entourage” is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 12, 2015.

I’m so freaking excited!!

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Sleeping In Separate Bedrooms

This pic of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth in happier days shows how far this couple has come…and that, perhaps, a breakup is imminent!

Why? Because they don’t even sleep in the same room anymore, on the rare occasion that they are both together in their LA home! I know, very sad.

One supposed insider reveals (via PerezHilton):

“[Miley] stays in the master bedroom and Liam stays in one of the guest rooms. Sometimes she’ll even stay at her parents’, which is across the street, with her sister or mom so she doesn’t feel alone. The two know it’s over…but aren’t ready to announce it.”

As much as I like making fun of young, dumb, celeb couples, this quote strikes me as sad. The two should just rip the band-aid off, break up for realz, and start living their own (and young!) lives!  These things happen, and the sooner you can tackle the ugly stuff (separating things, announcing the split) the sooner these two can move on.
