Liam Neeson is dating an "incredibly famous" woman seven years after losing his wife Natasha Richardson in a skiing accident.

Neeson, 63, won't say who she is, but super sleuths on the internet believe they've found her: Twilight star Kristen Stewart. The rumour has been denied by Neeson's rep.

The Taken star 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.

A report on Jezebel sketchily suggested Neeson and Stewart visited New York nightclub Tao NYC at the same time on January 5.

The internet quickly lit up over the rumours.

A representative for Neeson told GossipCop the rumour was "stupid".

Neeson started dating Richardson, of the famous Redgrave acting dynasty, in the 1990s, with the pair marrying in 1994.

The couple had two sons together, Michael and Daniel. However, Richardson died in 2009 from brain injuries after falling on the ski slopes in Canada and bumping her head.

Stewart's previous relationship include her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson and a brief liaison with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

She has reportedly split up with her girlfriend Alicia Cargile.


Neeson also shared that his son, Michael, is following in his acting footsteps.

"It gladdens my heart but it also makes me wary for him. My lineage (in acting) is short but my wife's goes back to the 1700s. He's taking it very seriously," he said.

"He's had a couple of opportunities for screen tests for major things and he's turned them down. I asked him why and he said, 'I'm not trained yet', so I think that's wise."
