Liam Neeson says he's dating an 'incredibly famous' woman. Could it be Kristen Stewart?

Liam Neeson has kept his love life closely guarded since the death of his wife Natasha Richardson in 2009, but his romantic status is suddenly trending.

It started when the 63-year-old actor told the Sunday Independent that he's dating a woman who is "incredibly famous" while declining to reveal who she is.

"I'd embarrass her if I said her name, she's incredibly famous," he said. "I'll have to do my best for her. It's amazing how far a simple bunch of freshly picked flowers will go in a lady's life, I find."

Of course, you can't drop a cryptic bombshell like that and not expect the guessing games to begin – which they did.

The first name that came to our minds was Liam's Oscar-winning co-star Helen Mirren, 70, who lived with him during the early '80s. But she's been married to director Taylor Hackford since 1997.

The website Jezebel offered a seemingly far more unlikely possibility: actress Kristen Stewart. Surely Liam won't be spending Valentine's Day with the 25-year-old. That's almost impossible to imagine.

But stay with us here because Jezebel does offer some interesting evidence to back up the theory.

According the website: "When searching a popular photo service for 'Tao NYC' (a nightclub/restaurant famous people and rich people who think they're famous love to be seen at) only  famous people are in their archives as having been there on January 5th. Those two famous people are – you guessed it – Liam Neeson and Kristen Stewart."

Hmm…let's consider this for a moment. Robert Pattinson's ex does have a thing for older men. She cheated on her co-star with her 44-year-old director Rupert Sanders.

But would Liam date a woman who's only five years older than his eldest son Micheál Richard Antonio? Stranger things have happened in Hollywood.
