This story is so random it sounds true, and plus they have a whole backstory that makes it sound more plausible than “sources say.” The National Enquirer reports that there is video of Liam Neeson walking around naked in the hall of a hotel in California. There are no details as to whether he was drunk or talking to himself or anything, so I would assume it was something like a late night ice run when he couldn’t be bothered to put on underwear. They do have the typical fake insider quotes about Liam being embarrassed, which is understandable and probably true if he even knows about this video.
Still-heartbroken Liam Neeson has been caught wandering the hallways of a California hotel completely nude! The 65 year-old Taken star’s raunchy ramble was caught on camera, and a hotel employee tried to make a quick buck by selling the video!
Desperate to hush up the bizarre incident, Liam hired pit bull attorneys to prevent the tape from going public, sources said.
“Liam was embarrassed to be caught in such a vulnerable moment,” spilled an insider.
“Exactly why he was wandering down the corridor butt-naked is still a mystery. It’s a sign that all isn’t well with him.”

After that their “insider” claims that Liam is still struggling with the loss of his wife, Natasha Richardson, who died in 2009 after suffering a skiing accident and that he may have PTSD. They needed an angle for this story, but it’s probably more likely that he was drunk. I googled “Liam Neeson drunk” because I’ve never heard stories about him being wasted in public or having a drinking problem and this interview from 2012 came up first. He was slurring a bit on the Irish Late Late Show and seemed buzzed and slightly out of it. His agent denied that Liam was drunk and Liam said that he hadn’t slept for two days at that point and didn’t expect to be interviewed. As for this story, Liam’s rep told Gossip Cop that it was “foolish,” which is a good way not to give a direct denial. If you’re trying to picture Liam now, just google “Liam Neeson naked” and you won’t be disappointed. He’s appeared in a couple of movies where he showed full frontal, and it’s impressive (link is SFW).
Update: Liam told GQ in 2014 that he had quit drinking because he was drinking too much after Natasha passed.
