Liam Neeson Retiring From Action Movies

The 65 year old actor known for the Taken franchise says he’s done with action films.  During an interview with SkyNews he revealed his age plays a big part in his decision.

“They’re still throwing serious money at me to do that stuff.  I’m like: ‘Guy’s I’m sixty-f******-five.’ Audiences are eventually going to go: ‘Come on.’ ”

This isn’t the first time he’s talked about retiring from action.  In a 2015 interview with Collider he said,”Well, there is a limit, of course. It’s the movies, you know. For myself, I probably – maybe two years if god spares me and I’m healthy and stuff. After that I’ll stop, I think.
