Liam Neeson thinks he's too old for action movies

The esteemed actor has decided it's time to settle down a little.


Since the beginning of the century, Liam Neeson has starred in countless action movies, from Taken and its sequels to Night Run and The A-Team. However, two years ago the actor said in a quote relayed by The Guardian that he could not see himself doing this all his life and that he only had two more years in the action movie industry. Thus, it won't come as a surprise to see him as weary as he was at the Toronto International Film Festival, during which he said he was time for him to move on:

"They're still throwing serious money at me to do that stuff. I'm like, 'Guys I'm sixty-fucking-five.' Audiences are eventually going to go, 'come on.'"

The actor who played Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace will soon be staring in The Silent Man. Do you think it's time for him to make room for younger actors?
