So sad.

Five months after his wife, Natasha Richardson, passed away, Liam Neeson, opens up on how the tragic accident has affected him and his family.

The actor claims that he and the couple's two sons are "doing good," but taking it one day at a time.

As it should be!

Liam says found strength in the many condolence letters he received during that time.

"That is partly the reason why I've recently become an American citizen," Neeson says of the support he received. "I'm still a proud Irishman, of course, but I've become an American citizen - I'm very proud of that."

We're glad to have him as one of our own!

Stay strong for the childrenz!

    I just saw "Ponyo" with my Daughter, Liam Neeson provided the voice of a major character in the film and he was awesome!

    I've loved Liam Neeson since Schindler's List. I saw Richardson in Parent Trap and she was adorable. It was heart-breaking, what happened. I'm so glad that Liam is a US citizen. My son, Liam (6), and daughter, Sophia (8), are glad too!

    It breaks my heart. They have been my favorite hollywood couple for so long. Never playing in to the nonsense and just being real people.

    I still find my self thinking I am gonna see her in a new film or on the red carpet being her precious talented self. It makes my heart twinge when I realise all over again thatt she is gone for ever. But not in our hearts our minds or on film. I can not even imagine what The family is going through. I wish only for them to find happiness again one day in life. Moments like these make you hope so much that our loved one are infact in a heaven watching over us. If that is true I know Heaven has one hell of a new angel. Rest well and come back to us soon.

    He became a citizen because he got nice letters from people living in the United States? That means there are no nice people in Ireland or Great Britain? That makes no sense; would he have become an Indonesian citizen if he got nice letters from there? And why give up Ireland? Does he want to pay taxes here to support killing people in Afghanistan and Iraq? Does he want support tobacco and pharmaceutical lobbies and car companies? Oh wait, maybe he does.

    Liam Neeson is an awesome actor! I remember watching him in obscure British dramas 20+ years ago. I am glad he was so happy with Natasha but WHY did have to go and have that horrible plastic surgery on his gorgeous face!!!! His eyes are all lop-sided now and his looks have seriously suffered as a result. It is one thing for women to go under the knife, but a gorgeous man like this??? He looked so much better before and he was aging gracefully. Poor man. I hope he finds happiness again.

    I WAS FIRST? WOWSA!

    Re: fluffybunnyfeet – He didn't give it up he is still a proud Irishman, my brother is a US citizen but still holds an Irish passport … Michael Collins is his icon … thats enough for me!
