Liam’s Lonely Heart
According to StarNeeson hasn’t been on a date in 13 years. After Richardson died in a tragic skiing accident, Translations actor apparently gave up on love.

“He says there’s no way you can tell who a person is by reading what they’ve written about themselves,” the source reveals. Neeson’s sons Micheál and Daniel initially didn’t want their father dating, but now they’ve changed their tune. An insider concludes: “They want nothing more than to see their father happy.”
What’s going on with Liam Neeson?
How the hell is it going on? Star to tell Liam Neeson how to grieve for Natasha Richardson? Although a source says Neeson talks about online dating, he hasn’t said a word about it. Besides, how can these so-called insiders really claim to know what Neesons kids would want in their lives? Deep-seated dreams are not exactly publicly known.
Richardson died in 2009 leaving behind young children and a hole in Neeson’s life. Star wants to act like this was just a regular breakup or like Neeson is actually like his character from Love, actually† The world isn’t a romantic comedy, and there’s no place to tell a widower what to do with their life.
To top it off, this story isn’t even factually accurate. Neeson reportedly dated his British publicist for a few years, but otherwise has a very low dating profile. Don’t confuse privacy with doing nothing. What Neeson does romantically is none of it? Star‘s business, and this insensitive story shouldn’t exist.
Liam Neeson is not alone
Celebrity romance sells magazines, so it’s no wonder why Star constantly thinks up new romantic rumors. Last year it announced that Tom Cruise was moving in with Hayley Atwell. The Mission Impossible co-stars never even publicly acknowledged any romance, but she left Cruise when filming ended anyway.
It also promises dating details about Drew Barrymore’s dating activity and Jennifer Aniston’s rules for boyfriends who turned out to be cheating. At least Neeson is in valued company at the center of unnecessary dating stories.
