Just WHO is Liam Neeson’s mystery girlfriend? We look at the likely candidates

With the actor revealing he’s dating “an incredibly famous woman”, speculation is rife that it’s Kristen Stewart. But we have our own theory…

After Liam, 63, revealed yesterday that he’s found love seven years after tragically losing his wife Natasha Richardson, it took the internet approximately .02 seconds to start wildly speculating about who the lucky lady could be.
Overnight, US website Jezebel’s idle speculation that it could be 25-year-old actress Kristen Stewart went viral.
They admit that their theory is based on “almost nothing” – except that Kristen and Liam were both at New York restaurant Tao on the same night in January, and were the only celebrities present.
US website Jezebel suggested Kristen Stewart could be Liam Neeson's mysterious new leading lady.
Twilight star Kristen recently broke up with her girlfriend Alicia Cargile, and dominated headlines in 2012 when she was photographed cheating on then-boyfriend Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
So far Liam has remained tight-lipped, and would only say, “I’d embarrass her if I said her name. She’s incredibly famous.”
Other names in the mix include Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, and Madonna.
One internet user had their fingers crossed that it was Sarah, Duchess of York, while another commenter on the Daily Mail declared he “had intel” that it’s Ashton Kutcher’s ex, Demi Moore.
However, we have a theory of our own.
Liam co-starred with South African beauty Charlize Theron in A Million Ways to Die in the West, which they filmed together in 2014.
In a confronting scene, which can be seen in the video player at the end of this story, Liam’s character is required to hit Charlize’s – but once the cameras stop rolling he can’t help but tenderly cradle her face.

Charlize, 40, said at the time, “I was a little bit starstruck when Liam came on set!”
In a later interview, she also cheekily gloated that she’d seen him naked during filming.
“I said what any healthy woman would say… ‘I get to see Liam Neeson’s butt!’” she told The Belfast Telegraph, laughing. “That’s what happened. I could think of so many worse jobs.”
At the time, Charlize was with actor Sean Penn, 55 – who, with his ruggedly handsome appearance, looks quite similar to Liam.
They abruptly and mysteriously ended their relationship in the middle of last year.

Charlize is mum to three-year-old son Jackson and newly adopted daughter August, while Liam has two sons from his marriage to Natasha Richardson.
Natasha tragically died in 2009 after suffering a brain bleed when she hit her head during a skiing accident.
If Liam and Charlize are dating, it would be a match made in Hollywood heaven – and while we have no official proof, we can definitely dream, right?
