Liam Neeson: Wife Natasha Richardson’s Death Still Doesn’t Feel “Real” (VIDEO)

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



Liam Neeson opens up about his final moments with his wife Natasha Richardson in a new interview, five years after the actress died following a skiing accident.

Speaking with Anderson Cooper for “60 Minutes,” the movie star recalls, “I was told she was brain dead… she was on life support… I went in to her, and I told her I loved her, said, ‘Sweetie, you’re not coming back from this, you’ve banged your head.'”

“She and I had made a pact, if any of us got into a vegetative state that we’d pull the plug,” says Neeson. “So when I saw her, that was my immediate thought: ‘Okay, these tubes have to go. She’s gone.'”

The tragedy took a while to sink in, and in some ways never did.

“[Her death] was never real,” says Neeson. “It still kind of isn’t.”

The full interview will air on Sunday.
