But Liam Neeson has now confirmed he was just JOKING when he said his new lady was in the public eye. The 'Taken' star - who tragically lost his wife actress Natasha Richardson after she suffered a head injury in 2009 in Canada - told reporters this week that he was romantically involved again, but refused to name the lady in case he embarrassed her.
Since then, he's been linked from everyone to Hollywood siren Susan Sarandon and Twilight actress Kristen Stewart. A rep for the star has now confirmed to Mirror Celebs: "He was joking with the writer during an interview he was doing with the Irish Independent.
"They added Liam is indeed loved-up, but his new lady isn't in the spotlight. Speaking about his plans for Valentine's Day, the 63-year-old Hollywood A-Lister said: "I'll have to do my best for her. It's amazing how far a simple bunch of freshly picked flowers will go in a lady's life."
Although Liam is attempting to move on, he did admit that he naturally still feels "grief" over the passing of Natasha in 2009. He described her sudden death as "still a touchy subject" and added: "Of course the grief is still there. You do your best".
His only reported girlfriend after his wife died was PR executive Freya St Johnston, but the relationship ended two years ago. Liam Neeson on the red carpet. But who is his new girlfriend.
