The rumour mill went into overdrive yesterday when Liam Neeson's "incredibly famous" new girlfriend was reported to be Kristen Stewart.

Those claims are "stupid" and the result of "meaningless speculation," a spokesperson for the Taken star says.

Neeson sparked the rumours after admitting he had moved on with a new girlfriend after losing his wife Natasha Richardson in a skiing accident.

Neeson, 63, said he was dipping his toe back in the dating scene, saying he is involved with an "incredibly famous" woman.

"I'd embarrass her if I said her name, she's incredibly famous. 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, I find," he said.

Super sleuths on the internet reported it was 25-year-old Twilight star Kristen Stewart.
