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.
Don’t worry we still have four more films coming up where Neeson will be showing off his action skills. Here’s a list of his upcoming movies and release dates.
