Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson's Romance Is a Lesson in Love For Non-Believers

29 June 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Natasha Richardson tragically passed away in 2009 from a head injury following a skiing accident, but her romance with husband Liam Neeson is one that continues to inspire people to this day. The two stars tied the knot in 1994 and welcomed two sons, Micheál and Daniel. While they were clearly an adorable couple, the beginning of their love story was actually pretty dramatic. Natasha and Liam first met in 1993 while starring in the Broadway revival of Anna Christie. At the time, Natasha was married to producer Robert Fox, and Liam was known as a Hollywood ladies' man who had been previously linked to stars like Helen Mirren, Julia Roberts, and Brooke Shields. Their chemistry was undeniable on stage, and a month after closing night, Natasha ended her marriage. "It was not an easy time when I met Liam," she later told the Daily News. "Working with him, what happened between us, »

Liam Neeson Reflects on Losing Wife Natasha Richardson as Love Actually Marks Poignant Reunion: ‘That’s the Tapestry of Life’

31 March 2017 1:27 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Liam Neeson took on the role of widower Daniel in the 2003 Christmas hit Love Actually, he had no idea how closely his life would eventually mirror his beloved character’s.

Just six years after the film’s debut, Neeson’s own wife – actress Natasha Richardson – died following a ski accident.

After reuniting with Love Actually‘s star-studded cast for a Red Nose Day special, Neeson opened up to Entertainment Weekly in its newest issue about how re-visiting the past on-screen allowed him to reflect off-screen.

Mindy Newell Is Writing This During The Giants / Packers Game

9 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The Crown Season 1

This is going to be a relatively unusual column today as I am frequently stopping to watch the New York Giants/Green Bay Packers wild card game. Right now there are 20 seconds left in the 1st quarter, the G’ints just punted, and Green Bay’s drive will start on the 45 yard line. The Giants should be up by at least one touchdown, but Beckham has dropped two perfect passes in the end zone – commentators Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are speculating that it’s because of the cold weather and although that’s possible, that’s not what I expect from a player of Beckham’s caliber. He made the All-Pro team this year. Anyway, the G’ints are up by a field goal (that’s three points for you non-football fans out there) and Green Bay has yet to put anything on the board.

Alexis Bledel and Elisabeth Moss Preview Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ (Watch)

7 January 2017 11:14 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hulu has released the first teaser for its upcoming dystopian drama “The Handmaid’s Tale,” starring Elisabeth Moss, Samira Wiley, Joseph Fiennes, and the recently revealed Alexis Bledel (among others). The trailer, which you can watch above or on YouTube, introduces us to the fictional world of the Republic of Gilead, the authoritarian theocracy that has supplanted the United States, where women are nothing more than wives, servants, or breeders, referred to as “handmaids.”

Elisabeth Moss’ Offred is one such handmaid. “I had another name, but it’s forbidden now,” Offred explains in the trailer. “So many things are forbidden now.” Offred once had a husband, and child, we see, who were taken from her. She and the other handmaids are overseen by Aunt Lydia (Anne Dowd), who intones, “Ordinary is just what you’re used to.”

‘Gilmore Girls’ Star Alexis Bledel Joins Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’

5 January 2017 8:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Alexis Bledel has signed onto her first gig after Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” revival.

The fan-favorite TV star has joined Hulu’s upcoming dystopian series “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Variety has learned.

She joins star Elisabeth Moss in the 10-episode series, along with Joseph Fiennes, Samira Wiley and Yvonne Strahovski. The streaming series is set to debut on April 26, 2017.

Based on the novel by Margaret Atwood, “The Handmaid’s Tale” follows Offred, a handmaid played by Moss, who is forced into subjugation in an attempt to repopulate the fictional, male-dominated society of Gilead. Bledel will play Ofglen, Offred’s (Elisabeth Moss) fellow handmaid and companion. At first, Ofglen seems like a pious rule-follower, loyal to the oppressive Gilead system, but she turns out to be daring and subversive. Bledel joins in a recurring role.

Hulu gave a straight-to-series order to “The Handmaid’s Tale” in April 2016. The series hails from MGM Television. Bruce Miller »
