Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon says she was thrilled to know about her romance rumours with Liam Neeson.
Neeson, 64, set tongues wagging when he claimed that he was in a relationship with "someone incredibly famous" and after Sarandon, 70, was reported to be his mystery lady, the actress got extremely excited as she says, "I'm more than happy for everyone to think that", reported Femalefirst.
"I loved that! It was a week of heaven. I first read the headline, 'Liam is romancing Susan', and I thought firstly, 'that's news to me!' And then, 'I'm not going to tell the truth.
"Who wouldn't want to be in a romance with Liam? Oh my God, the man is perfect! He's handsome, he's charming, he's Liam Neeson, who doesn't dream of that? I hoped it would run and run. I should probably have stoked the fires, threw out some cryptic tweet," Sarandon says.
"Of all the rumours, of all the stuff written about me, that was possibly the best. So why couldn't it be true? Really, I mean come on universe, make this one happen," she adds.
