Liam Neeson Covers 'Esquire' March 2011

Liam Neeson Covers 'Esquire' March 2011

Liam Neeson is the cover guy for the March 2011 issue of Esquire magazine!

Here’s what the 58-year-old Unknown actor had to share:

On coping with grief after losing his wife, Natasha Richardson: “I think I survived by running away some. Running away to work. Listen, I know how old I am and that I’m just a shoulder injury from losing roles like the one in Taken. So I stay with the training, I stay with the work. It’s easy enough to plan jobs, to plan a lot of work. That’s effective. But that’s the weird thing about grief. You can’t prepare for it. You think you’re gonna cry and get it over with. You make those plans, but they never work. It hits you in the middle of the night — well, it hits me in the middle of the night. I’m out walking. I’m feeling quite content. And it’s like suddenly, boom.”

On his role in Battleship: “I’m the admiral of the fleet. But get this, I was in Belfast this summer, visiting my family, and my agent kept calling me, saying, Have you read that? Are you ready? And I said for what now? The shooting isn’t till December. And he said no, no, no. It’s Sep-tember. They need you this coming Wednesday! I’d completely let it slip my mind.”

  • Brightside

    58 and he still looks so good. He is still my perfect Jedi Master and I would love to be his padawan. You’re too cool, Liam.

  • ilia

    I have a total bro-crush on this man. He is an amazing actor, and that voice; women (and men) must be throwing themselves at him.

  • Glamourous

    As awful as Natasha’s death was, I am glad that he’s doing okay. Even if being a widower and single parent is very tough, Liam is lucky that he has two boys to love and nurture that will be a reminder of Natasha,

    A lost soul. Actually refers to that facile, boring, derivative piece of exploitative trash “Taken” without shame.
