Ultimatum by Natasha Richardson
During the shooting of the drama “Nell” (1994), for which Neeson and Richardson were together in front of the camera, his future wife opened up to him: “‘Liam, I want to tell you something: If you play James Bond, we’re not getting married’ “.
“She gave me a James Bond ultimatum and she meant it,” explains Neeson. The Hollywood star attributes Richardson’s dislike of the Bond role to “all these beautiful girls in different countries” who “get in and out of bed. I’m sure a lot of their decision was based on that”.
