Helen Mirren on her previous lover Liam Neeson: “I still love him.”

Helen Mirren has revealed fresh details about her decades-long relationship with Liam Neeson.

She told AARP Magazine of the “Taken” actor, “We were not destined to be together in that sense, but we loved each other very, very deeply.” “I continue to genuinely adore him. He is such a remarkable person.”

Mirren, 77, and Neeson, 70, dated from 1980 to 1985 after meeting on the set of “Excalibur” in 1981. Neeson stated in an episode of “Inside the Actors Studio” with presenter James Lipton in 2012 that Mirren was essential in his acquiring an agency. Mirren stated, during a 2018 joint appearance on “The Graham Norton Show,” “We didn’t date, we lived together for four years – we were serious for a spell.” Lucky me!”

Neeson also admitted that they met Muhammad Ali, who flirted with Mirren, while they were dating. “I suppose I ought to have been irritated. However, all I could think was, “Wow, Muhammad Ali is attempting to seduce my girlfriend.” ‘How fantastic is that?’ he said.

“It was tough for him to be in my shadow,” Mirren told the New York Times of the couple’s breakup. “I was well-known and wealthy… Liam gave me the impression that it was time for him to leave my protection. He handled the situation with elegance and poise. We cherished one another. It was difficult to let go.”

Mirren has been married to 77-year-old filmmaker Taylor Hackford since 1997, while Neeson wed the late Natasha Richardson in 1994.

Mirren is slated to feature in “1923,” a spinoff of “Yellowstone” launching on Paramount+ on December 18th, while Neeson has a number of upcoming action films, including “In the Land of Saints and Sinners” and “Thug.”

The Oscar-winning actress said that she had a less-than-stellar habit that she introduced Neeson to during their time together.

She stated, “I create my own clothing really poorly, and then I rarely wear them because they are so dreadful.” However, I like the process of producing them… I went through a period where I made shirts for males. All my lovers were required to wear shirts that I created.”

Neeson and her current husband, the late Peter O’Toole, are members of this organization.

“Strangely, I did make one for Liam,” she said.
