Liam Neeson vacations with his 30-something girlfriend in St. Tropez

fp_7627706_chp_neeson_liam_00_09

Last year, it seemed like Liam Neeson got himself a new girlfriend. She was identified as a 36-year-old businesswoman named Freya St. Johnston, and it seemed like Liam’s first (and only) relationship since Natasha Richardson’s death in 2009, nearly two and a half years ago. I think this is Freya in these new photos – but I’m not 100% positive. If you go here, you can see photos of Freya and Liam last year. I think this is the same woman, and I think the young boy in the pictures is her son from a previous relationship. They were photographed – Freya, her son and Liam – in St. Tropez on Wednesday, where they’re apparently on vacation.

Freya and Liam went public in September of last year, and back in April of this year, the Enquirer reported that they have gotten quietly engaged. I judged both of them a little bit, just because from what little I know about Freya, she seems… I don’t know, unworthy of someone as cool as Liam. But then I remembered that Liam gave that absolutely heartbreaking Esquire interview, and so now I just want him to be happy. He looks pretty content in these pics – and if go here, you can see photos of Liam and Freya kissing for the paps.

    LOVE. HIM. Short of dating a Kartrashian (or anyone one that sub-par scale), he can do wrong in my eyes.

    (My heart just broke for him hearing him talk about his beloved Natasha’s death and life without her.)

  2. brin says:

    Yeah, I’m happy for him. This is the first I’ve seen him in a while so they certainly aren’t flaunting their relationship for the paps. I hope he is doing well.
    *waving at bellaluna*

  3. Quest says:

    I am glad that he found some happiness, can’t really get mad at Liam

  4. Addie says:

    At some point some widows and widowers decide to give love another try and good for them. Some however can’t truely move on.

    I remember reading that since Corinne Baeily Rae’s husband died in 2007 she says to this day she is still in moarning and not ready to move on and date she still wears her wedding and engagment bands on her left ring finger together with his wedding band, a really beautiful tribute I think (fyi I adore Corinne and her music)

    But good for Liam for finding joy after trajedy.

  5. You don't say says:

    He and his family deserve happiness, he should go for it. He is attractive, wonderfully tall, and has a great voice.

  6. courtney says:

    Good for Liam for findig love again though it won’t be the same kind of love he had for Natasha. a widow or widower still wearing their wedding ring is usually sweet especially when there are adult children involved like Paul McCartney still wears his wedding ring from his marriage to Linda and I think her ring got passed to one of their daughters and Joanne Woodward stilll wears her ring and Paul’s on occasion granted they were married nearly 51 years when he passed away September 26th 2008 and Liam still wears his from Natasha too and always will some divorcees still wear their weddding rings as well like Robert Redford still wears his ring from his first marriage to Lola Vanwagonan with whom he had 4 children one of whom died of sids at the age of 6 months and three who are adults now aged 51 49 and 41.

    It’s a woman thing. Men can have their wife of 20-years die and get married again 3 months later. Most women aren’t like that. Or maybe women can live without men better than men can live without women.

  8. madpoe says:

    Extremely happy for Liam. Hope he and his sons find peace, love & happiness.

  9. Katyusha says:

    I love Liam! I think because he looks exactly like my dad, reminds me so much of him.

    Also, how cool does he dress?

  10. mannequin says:

    I agree, she seems unworthy of him, although I don’t know who would be. Except maybe me.
    Still, I’m happy if he’s happy but she better not break his heart!

  11. eternalcanadian says:

    That’s pretty interesting. Liam’s been quiet on the dating radar for a long time. Hope things work out for him!

  12. Delta Juliet says:

    @ Ann…I think it’s the second one to be honest. A LOT of women I know say “never again”

  13. Mrs. Darcy says:

    He’s perfect. She seems kinda low rent compared to Natasha but as long as he’s happy that’s the main thing. It’s easy to judge how quickly people can or can’t move on from the outside. As someone who very nearly died young I know all I would ever want is for my husband to be happy after I’m gone. I never used to feel that way before, but you realize life is too short for people to live for too long without love, especially when they’ve lost it in such a heartbreaking way.

  14. jc126 says:

    I couldn’t even get through the interview link and I started to tear up. I wish him and his sons nothing but happiness.

  15. Jen34 says:

    I have nothing but good wishes for Liam. I wish I were with him in St. Tropez.

  16. lrm says:

    they both look uncomfortable with the paps=a good sign….she doesn’t put off the gold digger vibe, and i know nothing about her at all….
    but they look content and comfortable with each other-the most important thing….
    good luck and best wishes to you, Liam!

  17. original kate says:

    i hope he is happy. he seems like a lovely man who has been through a terrible tragedy. good for him.

    as for corinne bailey rae, i am obsessed with her new CD “sea of love” or whatever its called. a very talented singer with such a sad story – i hope she can move on.

  18. TQB says:

    Anything that brings him peace and happiness is OK by me. And I love her sundress.

  19. Gayle says:

    Where is the ageist moral outrage that accompanied the story of Ryan Phillippe and his 18-year old gf? Liam is 23 years older than Freya, 5 more years of an age diff than Demi and Ryan, who was accused of being an old perv. Clearly it’s just a matter of who the man in question is dating a much younger woman.

    In terms of the ick factor, this pairing is a lot more icky to me. At 18, I definitely found 30 year-old men hot. But at close to Freya’s age now, I cannot fathom finding a 60 year-old man hot, even the talented Liam Neeson. Nonetheless, I would never condemn either relationship based on age.

  20. original kate says:

    @ gayle: i’m not sure what you’re on about, but there is a huge difference between an 18 year old girl and a 36 year old woman.

  21. dholmas says:

    @Gayle – What is the ick factor of men in their 60′s? He is a handsome man and we all age unless you die young. My husband will turn 65 in a few weeks and I find him very attractive. He is 13 years older than I am and we both are active and in great shape. I wish Liam all the best in finding happiness after the tragic loss of Natasha.

  22. REALIST says:

    I want him to be happy, but for me, the bigger issue is this:
    I subscribe to the “love of your life” theory. If you are lucky enough to have been in a relationship with truly “the one”, if you lose that person, just stop there and don’t “try again” with someone else.
    Please see-Paul McCartney..
    Women seem to get that. Please see-Yoko Ono.
    Besides, as my DC friend David said, Natasha was “smokin’ hot.” This woman will always have to live in her shadow.
    @TQB-I really wish I could be as cool about this as you. He did go through a horrible period of grief and should have some peace-hopefully my Cassandra-esque predictions won’t come too pass.

  23. Chris says:

    You know, he’s not American.

  24. Violet says:

    This isn’t his first relationship since his wife’s death. Off the top of my head, he’s also been involved with his former co-star Laura Brent, as well as Polish actress/model Kasia Wolejnio.

    I don’t doubt that he grieves Natasha’s loss deeply, but he started dating the year after her death.

    Personally, I was a bit shocked that he started seeing other women so soon after his loss but I guess some people can’t handle celibacy.

  25. crtb says:

    She is very plain looking. I wish him happiness however I do wish he could have found someone closer to him in age. Old men dating young women make me want to puke.

  26. Kosmos says:

    She’s probably perfect for him, so let them be happy. She’s obviously not after fame and they just fell in love. It’s not easy to fill the space of his former wife. Grieving on his part could go on for years, so she has to be willing to take that on. This has to be a very mature relationship for it to work and they both seem like they fit. Let’s not tear them down.

  27. Turtle Dove says:

    Nice to see Liam doing well. It was hard on him losing Natasha suddenly.

  28. skuddles says:

    Is it me or does she not look quite a bit like his late wife Natasha?? I believe they also met when she was in her 30′s…
