Connections

During childhood, Neeson was acquainted with Ian Paisley, whose sermons he would sneak off to attend despite his family being devoutly Roman Catholic. Today he calls Paisley "magnificent" and said that his dramatic Bible-thumping encouraged him to become an actor.

Neeson dated Helen Mirren from 1981 - 1985. They met on the set of Excalibur.

Neeson met his hero Muhammed Ali in the early 1980's. Neeson got his autograph and said that he was completely starstruck, and incredibly nervous. Ali then brazenly began hitting on Helen Mirren, Neeson's girlfriend at the time. Neeson was so starstruck, he didn't care.

Fairly early in his film career, Neeson auditioned for the role of Fezzik in The Princess Bride in 1986, in front of director Rob Reiner. However, when Reiner realized that Neeson was "only" 6'4, he was "disgusted." Neeson maintains today that it was one of the most embarassing moments of his acting career.

Neeson dated Julia Roberts briefly in 1987, after meeting on the set of Satisfaction. She was 19 and he was 35.

Neeson dated Brooke Shields for one year, beginning in 1991.

Neeson is a friend of Henry Herman and Ciaran Hinds.

Neeson is a friend of Steven Spielberg, whom he grew close to while filming Schindler's List in 1992. Neeson was also Spielberg's first choice to star in the film Lincoln, but Neeson thought that he was too old for the role, and turned it down.

Neeson is a close friend of Ralph Fiennes, whom he met on the set of Schindler's List in 1992. They still see each other and are fond of attending concerts together.

Neeson was married to actress Natasha Richardson from 1994 until her death in 2009. Through marriage to her, he was the son-in-law of Vanessa Redgrave and Tony Richardson, and the brother-in-law of Joely Richardson.
