Liam Neeson looks dashing at the Paris premiere of ‘Non-Stop’: would you hit it?


Have you seen the commercials for Non-Stop? All of a sudden Liam Neeson is a late-in-life action star, and he’s getting all of the scripts which have him kicking ass and taking names. Unlike the incredibly violent Taken series though, Non-Stop seems to be more of tense thriller with some extreme action towards the end, rather than an action-packed beat ‘em up flick. Plus, Liam got to work with a trio of lovely ladies: Julianne Moore (I think they’re old friends), Michelle Dockery and Lupita Nyong’o. These are some photos from last night’s Paris premiere, and no, Lupita was not in attendance, unfortunately.

Julianne’s dress is Balenciaga – I thought, at first glance, it was Roland Mouret. That just shows you how everyone is jacking Mouret’s designs these days, from Alexander Wang to Victoria Beckham. If you really look at this dress though, it sort of works and Julianne still looks pretty great. Michelle wore Lanvin – this is a pretty LBD, but nothing special.

What these photos are giving me is a real desire to see Julianne and Liam together in real life. I know, I know. Julianne is happy with Bart Whatsit and Liam is… I’m not even sure. He probably has a couple of girlfriends here and there. But Julianne and Liam make an extremely attractive couple, don’t they?

Here’s the trailer for Non-Stop. I might want to see this.

    Kaiser i came here to say the exact same thing.. Julian and Liam look great together.

  2. Ice Maiden says:

    He looks very differnt in these pics. You’d still know it was Liam Neeson, but only just. Has he had (more) work done?

    • Kiddo says:

      Yeah, he looks ‘refreshed’, more-so than in other photos. But he also has a ton of make-up on; you can see the concealer under his eyes. He’s still an attractive man, but I wonder what he looks like up close and in person.

      • Ice Maiden says:

        He does indeed look refreshed. And when you remember that make-up tends to accentuate rather than camouflage any wrinkles, his skin must be remarkably smooth for a man his age. I’d say Liam has had quite a lot of work done on his face, even though he does still have a few lines around his eyes.

      • Jayna says:

        In Taken 2 he has a lot of lines. I can see lines on his face there. It’s just all the makeup they wear kind of hiding it with the lights.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I am the absolute worst person at telling if someone has had work done (seriously, it has to be OBVIOUS), but I would be surprised if Liam’s had anything done. He’s always looked freakishly young to me–like he looks mature, but I would’ve never thought he was 40 when he did Schindler’s List. Ever. He aged a lot, after Natasha died, poor man.

      • Ice Maiden says:

        I think if a female star Liam’s age had skin this smooth (look at his forehead!) there would be absolutely no question that she had had work done – it would be a question of what and when, but not if. The fact that he has some lines doesn’t rule it out. His ex-girlfriend, Helen Mirren, has quite a lot of lines, but nobody seriously thinks she’s completely au naturel.

      • Sacred And Profane says:

        Liam has that tell-tale paleness around his eyes, where the skin has been stretched to remove some wrinkles, folds and that “hooded” look. The surgeon has done a super job, though. Liam looks great. I also think he has that inner quality that makes some men look good, at any age.

    • Liv says:

      Has he had work done before?!

  3. CC says:

    The headline is clearly a rhetorical question. 🙂

  4. Sullivan says:

    Yes. Yes, I would. A number of times.

  5. Hannah says:

    Julianne and Liam co-starred in “Chloe”, which I really liked. Although Liam wasn’t in it all that much.

  6. ldub says:

    i’d smash. i’d smash it like an idaho potato.

    • Boo says:

      OMG you made my day! I’m in my mid forties so it’s good to see the older guys still getting love from the fans. No offence to the younger ones…there are definitely some yummy ones!

  7. BooBooLaRue says:

    Ahem, like a windsock in gale force.

    • TheCountess says:

      Oh my lord. +1

    • Boo says:

      My god, I hope he reads these and give some smug side eye to his younger peers!

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        He should! I feel like I lost something when I wasn’t born ten or twenty years later–the guys I’m supposed to find oh so talented and sexy (NOT!)–Robert Pattinson, the dude from High School Musical, Chace Crawford—UGH.

        Why couldn’t I have been able to go to ‘Bram Stoker’s Dracula’ on opening night and drool over Gary Oldman????? Go see Freddie Mercury LIVE (God, that man was living, breathing sex), or go to any one of Liam’s premieres like a demented fangirl (well, I can still do that 🙂

        Liam should be smug as hell…….which he probably isn’t, which is part of his charm (you know, beyond his dong and accent)

  8. TheCountess says:

    Liam circa “Rob Roy”? Hell yes. But his face is looking a little too Mattel-like these days.

  9. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Um, everyone else can go home. MINE!

    Let’s just say if I had the opportunity, I’d make him forget his own name and remember mine 😉

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      Oh my this is funny!

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      When I saw his pic, my first thought was “where’s Virg?”.
      He is definitely yours.

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      I would hit him over the head with a bat, then drag him to Virgilia’s place in exchange for some of the delicious baked goods she seems to have extraordinary talent for making.

      My affection can be bought or unbought as needed!!

      I am not afraid of you Virgilia. If you don’t bake me something nice, I will hide Liam and you won’t get to see him or his sprinkler-jumping antics again anytime soon…

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Squirrel, if you managed to club Liam, and drag him to my house, cave man style (please call when you’re in the driveway, I want to take pictures)—then I will be your personal baker until I die……..just learned how to make really good chewy caramels, so I will have that to offer you while I drag Liam up the stairs, into my room…;)
        Seriously though–I need SOMEONE to snuggle up with–it’s 9 below where I am, school has been canceled for the past two days– and Liam fits the bill quit nicely.

        If you drag him here, I’ll let you take pictures when I let him loose in Lake Superior…….

        Gah–I envy you right now…I wish I was in Australia, or somewhere not covered in two feet of snow and freezing cold.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        40+ degrees Celsius here today (that’s about 105-ish degrees Fahrenheit I think). Could we strike a happy medium between the two temperatures and meet to exchange Liam/caramels somewhere slightly more moderate, like the sun…

  10. Jayna says:

    Yes, yes, yes, I would. But he’s slimmed down a little. I really liked him heavier like he was during his promos for Taken 2. I loved his fuller face and body and he had some facial hair. He was oozing sex appeal. But it’s all in his voice anyway.

    • Jayna says:

      I forgot. On the interview I posted above, Bieber is on the same show. LOL They have Liam reading Justin’s soong lyrics at the end in his amazing voice. It’s hysterical.

    • Jayna says:

      never mind. It’s not on this clip.

  11. Boo says:

    Yes, and no. First, I think he will always look sexy to me BUT when men start dying their hair it all looks that same reddish brown – just different shades of (the little bit of grey at the temples isn’t fooling anyone). Even worse when they try to pull off fake blond hair like Jon Bon Jovi (still has shades of red).

    So, if he let his natural silver/ grey colour grow in and did it with confidence ala George Clooney – yea I’m in.

    • V4Real says:

      “BUT when men start dying their hair it all looks that same reddish brown – just different shades of (the little bit of grey at the temples isn’t fooling anyone). ”

      Haha I just strolled back up and noticed that. I used to love the salt and pepper look on Clooney as well as Richard Gere. I can appreciate a man who let his natural grays shine through but I don’t have a problem with men who dye their hair. Women do it, why can’t men. However, I do find it a bit off putting when men tweak their face so much that it is noticeable and not in a good way.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I think he does it for movies—I think in his off/down time he lets it go grey.

        Have you seen any pics of his sons–they’re HUGE. And alas, I hoped for one that looked just like his daddy, unfortunately they’re an even mix (although I wasn’t looking too hard).

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Yeah..Bruce Jenner comes to mind. It’s just too harsh and fake-looking.

        That being said, I agree with V4Real that it wouldn’t bother me to date a guy that dyes his hair, but why not embrace the S&P look? So sexy!

      • V4Real says:

        Yes TOK Bruce came to mind when I was typing that. Good Lord he is only a shadow of the man he used to be.

        BTW to answer the question, yes I would hit it but then Virgilia Coriolanus might hit me…..with her car. 🙂

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Unfortunately for you V4Real, I get a tetchy about mah husband—so there is no sisterhood when Liam is involved. None whatsoever.

        I am not ashamed…

      • Cirque28 says:

        I think what Boo meant is not so much that men shouldn’t dye their hair, but that they get such crappy dye jobs, they’d look better grey. (And grey is also sexy.) It’s true about them all having the same fakey reddish brown and I don’t understand WHY. I know women who have color that looks so natural, you would never know they’re actually 100% grey. And yet even rich men can’t seem to find a good colorist.

  12. umyeah says:

    He and julianne look like bonafide movie stars. That’s what movie stars should look like. He’s so dashing! 🙂

  13. Elizabeth says:

    Like a screen door in a hurricane.

  14. Ginger says:

    I’d hit that all day long every day always!!! He’s my forever dong. And since my friends think I look a bit like Julianne Moore… I second the coupling up idea of those two so I can live vicariously!

  15. Kristen says:

    100 times yes. Love Liam Neeson.

  16. Liv says:

    Why can Lady Mary manage to appear in films as well as in Downton Abbey and Matthew can’t? He couldn’t even appear for one or two episodes? Jerk!

    • Uzi says:

      Practically EVERYONE in DA is doing films/theater/other TV…Hugh Bonneville (Lord Grantham) is in George Clooney’s “The Monuments Men,” Lily James (Rose) and Sophie McShera (Daisy) in Kenneth Branagh’s “Cinderella” for starters. Clearly there’s more to the Dan Stevens (Matthew) leaving DA story than what’s been told…

  17. Jayna says:

    You should see youtube comments. There is never one bad comment about Liam. Youtube on any celeb usally has trolls hitting the videos making awful remarks. Not Liam. Men and women love him. But on many you see girls, 19, 17, 22 saying they have the hots for him and would go for it.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      “But on many you see girls, 19, 17, 22 saying they have the hots for him and would go for it.”——LIKE ME.

      I have wanted to hit it since I saw ‘Schindler’s List’–at 13, which is probably why I’ve never had a boyfriend. Liam and Ralph were my first two celebrity crushes, although Liam has always been #1, because Ralph is a little skeezy (screwing a flight attendant w/out a condom, on the plane, on your way to talk about AIDS–smooth move), although very talented.

      I even sat through this movie called ‘Deception’ (Ruby Cairo in other countries)–with Liam, Viggo (drool), and Andy Macdowell–although Liam was hardly in it, he was hot though….big hands….which is my favorite body part of him–above the waist, that is 😉

      God, I hope he has pr that trolls this site…..

      • Ginger says:

        Interesting…we have this in common. I’ve been crushing on him since I was around 13 and saw him in Excalibur. This was back when he was with Helen Mirren who also made an impression on me at that age. I thought “I hope I’m pretty like her when I grow up” and funny thing is I still hope so today.

    • Decloo says:

      I’m kind of annoyed by him since he recently weighed-in on the Horse and Carriage issue in New York City. Animal welfare groups have been trying to get this horrendous practice ( a relic of a century ago) banned and have met with some success with our new mayor. Apparently Liam has friends in the trade and was slamming the claims of the animal welfare people–claiming they’ve never looked in the stables so they don’t know what’s going on. Sorry Liam but you needs to take a seat on this one; anyone with eyes can see how downtrodden these poor creatures are as they share the roadway with blaring trucks and taxis.

  18. I Choose Me says:

    I wouldn’t. But I’m having fun reading the comments of all those who would. He looks damn good in that suit though and that movie looks right up my alley.

  19. lower-case deb says:

    Mr Neeson, you don’t know who I am. You might not know what I want. If you thought I’m looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t need your money. But what I do want is a very particular set of things. Needs I have acquired over a very long time. Needs that probably make me a nightmare for people like you. If you come and take me now, that will be the end of it. I will not look for you after this, I will not pursue you anymore. But if you don’t come quickly, I will look for you, I will find you and I will…. umm we’ll think of something.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      *giggles uncontrollably*

      Hilarious–and oh so true. Not if I beat you to him first–I don’t like sharing….

  20. MissNostalgia says:

    Love him! I will definitely be seeing this movie…I saw the trailer and it looks awesome!

  21. Nancy says:

    Love him and will see this movie! But i’m getting a little tired of seeing Julianne in all the movies lately. Does she say no to anything?

  22. Diana says:

    Like a fine wine, ladies, like a fine wine…

  23. AG-UK says:

    yes because he looks like a bigger older version of my husband 🙂 but hubby hasn’t had work done and will not if I have anything to say but again he isn’t making HIS money sooooo whatever rocks your boat.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Does your husband have a brother?

      What’s his below the waist action??? (sorry, you don’t have to answer–couldn’t resist)

      • AG-UK says:

        Yes but none look like him. We use to live in NY and when they had posters for some of his films out these homeboys would be “yo that’s the guy from the film” he would say no I am not. My friends say I only went out with him because he looked like Liam Neeson.. no I didn’t. He is skinnier (English) and not as tall 6’0 vs 6’4. Liam always comes across as a really nice guy I will be seeing Non stop saw the poster this weekend

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        DAMN IT!

        Liam does seem like a really nice, sweet guy….le sigh.

  24. LMB says:

    I have loved this man since the eighties. Would I hit it? Hell yeah!!!

  25. Hiddles forever says:

    I always liked Liam Neeson, he is great! and he is looking damn good in those pics, considering his age! 🙂

  26. schueler says:

    I would hit it. I would fall in love with it and I would cherish it everyday. What a man!

  27. lamgirls3 says:

    Oh God. YES! YES! YES! He just keeps getting better…one fine hunk of man and I’ll bet he’s packin’!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE him!!! Liam, take me and do as you wish!

  28. Kali says:

    I wish I could change the Siri voice option to Liam Neeson. I would get far less frustrated and less tempted to throw my phone across the room.

    Pretty much everyone else above has said what I want to say re banging like a screen door, etc. etc. so on and so forth.

  29. Dirty martini says:

    Would I hit it?

    Bwwwwwwaaaa. Bbwwwwwwwaaaaa. Bwwwwwwwaaaaa (cackling)

    I’d hit it so hard. So very hard. Aren’t we talking hard? I mean hard.

  30. Cubfan34 says:

    I think he had his ears pinned in his 30’s and his eyes done in his early 50’s. He admits to wearing a rug. He just always looks good.

  31. Tania says:

    I’m going to say the same thing I said about Alan Rickman. Yes. All day, everyday. And if I’m being honest, I’d probably hit Julianne Moore too. I am a straight woman, but my goodness is she beautiful!

  32. Pumpkin Pie says:

    I want to watch it, can’t wait. Thanks for posting the trailer, I had no idea this moviewas coming out! I love Liam Neeson and thriller movies and “airplane movies” and now this movie has got all three! I hope it won’t disappoint…!!

  33. Sandy says:

    You say there’s nothing special about Michelle’s LBD? I sense some bias here. The reality is She looks stunning in that Lanvin dress. Pure class and top notch elegance. The details from the wide belt, to the beguiling partial backless design, to the 2 side slits that appear when she walks, all showcase her sexy side.
