Just one problem, she was “taken.”
The actor was promoting his film on the Australian morning show “Sunrise” when he shared the story.
“I loved Melbourne, I loved our Australian crew,” Neeson said. “Every department was superb but they were their own people, do you know what I mean?”
He then revealed, “I made a couple of pals and fell in love once while I was there, but she was taken.”
Neeson did not disclose who she was, but did say he would return to Australia one day.
“I look forward to going back, I really do,” he said.
Comedian Amy Schumer commented on social media that Neeson’s crush story could serve as the premise for another movie.
The actress shared a screenshot of a Daily Mail headline and referenced the actor’s action franchise, “Taken 4?”
Neeson was previously married to actress Natasha Richardson from 1994 to 2009. Richardson died after a skiing accident in Canada. The two share two sons, Micheál, 26, and Daniel, 25.
