Just last week, Liam Neeson caused quite a stir when he told the Irish Independent he had an “incredibly famous” girlfriend whom he didn’t want to name for fear of embarrassing her. The Internet went bananas speculating who it could be; from Charlize Theron to January Jones to Michelle Dockery to Kristen Stewart, the possibilities were endless.
Neeson seemed fine letting us in on his love life but when the Net got real serious about a Liam and K-Stew pairing, like, super-serious if you remember back to last week…
Liam wanted none of that and nipped it in the bud right away, saying those rumours were “stupid.”
Damn, that’s cold. Poor Kristen.
But people were persistent — and needed to know about Neeson’s love life. So he finally set the record straight. And for all of us wanting Liam to find love again, after the tragic death of his wife Natasha Richardson, his answer isn’t exactly what we had hoped to hear.
Neeson’s rep told Gossip Cop that the actor was “joking” and “there is no ‘very famous’ girlfriend” in his life. What a letdown. Our hearts were all a-flutter!
But maybe, just maybe, gossip was getting out of hand and he’s just pretending he isn’t involved with anyone. For privacy’s sake. Because he might very well be dating someone, right? Famous or not.
Hey, we can continue to dream, can’t we?
