How is it that the 66-year-old Liam Neeson can still pull off kick-ass action scenes on many of his action movies? He continues to up his workout routine even now. He doesn’t stop staying active and being fit is part of his daily lifestyle. In an interview, Neeson joked about getting paired with younger actresses in Hollywood and how this motivates him to continue his workout routine.
“I’ve got a couple of bed scenes with Olivia (Wilde)—so, yep, the push-ups continue,” he said. He went on to say: “When I’m in the city, I do eight miles around the park with a walking partner. I do an extra loop—and the usual boring push-ups and sit-ups.” He even joked about his age, saying “60 is the new 40”. Looking at the actor, pretty much, yes.
