Freya St. Johnston is a 36-year-old British businesswoman. Is she also Liam Neeson’s girlfriend? The two were seen leaving a restaurant in London last week, and they were holding hands as they moved on to the Dorchester Hotel.
The sighting comes a year and a half after Neeson lost wife Natasha Richardson to a tragic skiing accident. He and Richardson have two sons together and were married for 15 years.
It marks the first time that Neeson has been romantically tied to a woman since his wife’s death. There will surely be lots of talk about a new stepmom, but that’s completely premature. Neeson is keeping things on the down-low for now, as his rep refused to comment on reports that he is dating Johnston, and Johnston has also refused to comment.
A little more about her: She’s also a parent of twom with former flame Matthew Winton. She lives in northwest London. She’s a beauty, with long blond hair, and the tabloids are pointing out that she has more than a passing resemblance to Richardson, but I think that’s kind of disrespectful. Her Facebook status is, notably, single.
Still, Britain’s Daily Mail says that Neeson was merely reconnecting with an old friend in Johnston. We’ll have to see if it’s a true romance.
