Liam Neeson 'joking' about dating 'incredibly famous' woman

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Hollywood star Liam Neeson made headlines around the world when he revealed recently he was dating an "incredibly famous" woman, but now it turns out that he was just "joking".

Seven years after his wife Natasha Richardson died in a skiing accident, the "Taken" star had said he is moving on with his life.

"I'd embarrass her if I said her name, she's incredibly famous. I'll have to do my best for her," he had said.

After the quote was published, the Internet lit up with people guessing who the famous female was, with names such as Angela Merkel and Queen Elizabeth being bandied about.

But it turns out that the 63-year-old star was just having a bit of a laugh.

"He was joking with the journalist while conducting an interview promoting a documentary, and the humorous tone of that statement did not translate in the printed version of the interview," said Neeson's representative.
