Liam Neeson says he was 'just joking' about having a famous girlfriend... it's The Dredge

All the best of the day’s celebrity filth.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

Earlier this week, Liam Neeson told The Irish Independent that he was seeing someone “incredibly famous” but declined to reveal her identity. This news sent gossip sites into overdrive.

Jezebel speculated that he was seeing Kristen Stewart. The evidence? They were seen leaving the same restaurant in New York. Unfortunately, Neeson’s rep put the kybosh on that rumour, dismissing it as “stupid”.

Soon, the bookies weighed in, naming Susan Sarandon as the most likely candidate. (In fairness, what a fab couple they would be.)

Now it seems that Neeson is rolling back on his earlier statement with a source telling US Weekly that he “was just joking”.

Ah, the classic “Eh, I was only messing” excuse.

Whatever you say, Liam. (US Weekly)

Never ever accuse Penelope Cruz of having ugly feet. Yesterday, the actress appeared on the Today Show to discuss Zoolander 2 when host Savannah Guthrie decided to ask Cruz about her feet.

I think you said it, that you, despite what you look like… you’ve said you have ugly feet


Cruz immediately made clear that she never said that and her feet are perfectly fine, thank you very much.

Watch the awkward moment here. (Daily Mail)

Saoirse Ronan will star in the video for Hozier’s new song Cherry Wine. The single, which will be relased tomorrow, will benefit domestic abuse charities worldwide including the Irish charity Safe Ireland.

The Oscar-nominated actress will star as a woman grappling with the effects of domestic violence.

Speaking on her decision to star in the video, Ronan said she was “honoured” to collaborate with Hozier and help raise awareness o domestic abuse.

The song has always been one of my favourite tracks on his album. I hope through the video and song we can shine light on the issue and complexity of domestic abuse and in doing so help those caught up in the cycle of domestic violence.

The video will premiere on Valentine’s Day and 90c from each iTunes download of the single will be donated to Safe Ireland.
