Stone, 36, has been in a happy relationship with Australian businessman Jack Manning Bancroft since 2017.

There is also speculation that Neeson’s mystery woman could be Australian music icon Tina Arena, 54, who lives in Melbourne and has been in a relationship with artist Vincent Mancini since 2000.

Finally, Kylie Minogue’s 50-year-old sister Danny has also been in the spotlight.

Like Stone and Arena, Minogue lives in Melbourne and has been happily dating boyfriend Adrian Newman since 2014.

“Liam is keeping quiet about who this mystery woman is, but he certainly got everyone on set talking,” an insider told the magazine.

The source added that Neeson’s friends and colleagues want to see him “happy” after the tragic death of his wife Natasha Richardson 13 years ago.

In 2020, Neeson spent several months in Melbourne filming the action thriller Black Light.

Despite being in the fourth phase of the Covid lockdown at the time, the city found itself in a romantic relationship with a woman, but unfortunately she was “taken away”.

“I loved Melbourne. I love our Australian team, they are fantastic workers,” the Taken actor told Sunrise hosts David “Kochi” Koch and Natalie Barr last week.

The trip: Neeson, who has remained largely single since the death of his wife Natasha Richardson 13 years ago, spent several months in Melbourne in 2020 filming the action film Black Light.

“Every department was excellent. They were their own people, you know what I mean? They had a great sense of humor.”

Breaking into a knowing smile, the Irish star added, “I made a couple of friends… I fell in love, but they took her away.”

Koch and Barr said they were “intrigued” by Neeson’s confession and even asked viewers for help in finding the mystery woman.

“If you know the woman involved, check out the Facebook page. Give us some tips! Koch said.

Neeson’s late wife Natasha Richardson died at the age of 45 from an epidural hematoma (bleeding in the brain) two days after hitting her head during a skiing lesson for beginners in Quebec, Canada in 2009.

Speaking to CBS’s Anderson Cooper in 2014 about his loss, Neeson recalled arriving at the hospital and the doctors said his wife had died in an accident.

“She was on life support… I went up to her and told her I loved her. I said, “Honey, you’re not coming back from here, you hit your head,” he said.

“We made an agreement with her that if one of us falls into a vegetative state, we will pull the plug from the outlet. That was my immediate thought: “Okay, these tubes need to be removed. She’s gone.”

Neeson and Richardson married in 1994 and have two sons, Michael and Daniel.

Neeson rarely spoke about his personal life after the loss of his wife, but in 2012 ended a two-year relationship with British publicist Freya St. Johnston.

An insider told MailOnline at the time, “He told her that he wanted to spend more time in New York and that he really wanted to spend more time with his kids.

Freya wants something more serious, but Liam feels it’s too soon. His wife died just three years ago, he wants to take his time.

Freya and Neeson started dating in September 2010. They had a long distance relationship with Liam living with his sons in New York and Freya living in London with her children.

Neeson also sent fans into a frenzy when he revealed in 2016 that he had an “incredibly famous” girlfriend.

The actor said in a chat with the Irish Independent that he could not reveal who he was dating as she was a well-known celebrity and his remarks made Hollywood furious at her personality.

However, after the rumor mill swelled, the actor’s rep has now confirmed that it was actually a tongue-in-cheek comment that failed to translate.

Mystery: Neeson also sent fans into a frenzy when he revealed in 2016 that he had an “incredibly famous” girlfriend.

“He joked with the writer during an interview with an Irish independent publication,” a rep for the star said.

The actor was asked about Valentine’s Day and what he can buy his girlfriend, he said in an interview, refusing to reveal her identity.

He said: “I would embarrass her if I said her name, she is incredibly famous. I will have to do my best for her.

“It’s amazing how far a simple bouquet of freshly picked flowers can go in a woman’s life, I think.”

He continued, apparently in his tongue-in-cheek way: “I send several bouquets of flowers to different people and usually just say ‘from an Irish fan’.”

After his remarks, there was a lot of talk about who this lady could be – proposals ranged from Susan Sarandon and Halle Berry to Twilight actress Kristen Stewart.
