Liam Neeson's proclomation that he's dating an "incredibly famous" woman set the world guessing who his mystery love could be, and a recent article in Jezebel speculated that it could be Kristen Stewart. Though the piece stated that the theory was "based on almost nothing," the story spread like wildfire.

And now Liam's spokesperson has laid the claim to rest, confirming to the Independent that it is just "meaningless speculation", and telling Gossip Cop that the rumours were false and "stupid".

Irish star Liam, 63, has refused to name his new love interest in case he 'embarrasses' her. However, he did reveal she is "incredibly famous" and hinted at his Valentine's Day plans.

He told the Irish Sunday Independent: "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."

Since then, fans have been trying to guess the identity of his mystery lady, with popular suggestions including Susan Sarandon, Diane Lane, Halle Berry and Charlize Theron.

Liam lost his wife of 14 years, Natasha Richardson, in March 2009 after a tragic skiing accident. The couple had two sons together, 20-year-old Michael, and Daniel, 19.

The actor was previously in a two year relationship with British publicist Freya Johnston, but that came to an end in 2012. An insider told the Mail at the time: "He told her he wanted to spend more time in New York and that he really wants to make more time for his children.

"Freya wanted something more serious, but Liam feels it is too soon. His wife only died three years ago, he wants to take things slow."
