Liam: I’m get­ting too old for this!

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

HOL­LY­WOOD star Liam Nee­son says he will give up ac­tion movies in two years – be­cause he’s too OLD!

The Ir­ish-born ac­tor has en­joyed a ca­reer resur­gence thanks to the Taken films, but reck­ons he only has a cou­ple of years left in him.

And the 62-year-old ad­mits it may be time to stop the gun-wield­ing and po­lice chases – es­pe­cially if his knees start to go.

He said: “How long will I be do­ing this? Maybe two more years. If God spares me, and I’m healthy.

“But af­ter that I’ll stop the ac­tion I think.

“I get sent quite a few ac­tion-ori­ented scripts, which is great. I’m not knock­ing it. It’s very flat­ter­ing.

“But there is a limit, of course.

“If I feel au­di­ences say­ing, ‘Come on, he’s 62, enough is enough’, I’m very sen­si­tive to that and if I pick up that vibe it will all stop. And I’ll start play­ing dads or grand­fa­thers.

“But I keep my­self pretty fit, my knees are still great. And it’s fun.”
