Liam Neeson has had a long and storied career, and if you just know him from the Taken movies or even Schindler’s List, you don’t know half of it.

Most people obviously know that he tragically lost his wife, Natasha Richardson, after she suffered a skiing accident in 2009.

But did you know that he lived with Helen Mirren for much of the 1980s?

Or that he left college — where he was a physics and computer science student — to go work for the Guinness Brewery (I like the man’s priorities)?.

Thankfully, Neeson hasn’t put those boxing skills to use in the real world, except for once.

And this particular kid just didn’t want to settle down, and he wanted to disrupt the whole class, you know?

Why he was fired for punching a kid who pointed a knife at him, however, makes no sense at all. »
