    Aww, that reminds me of my Granddad, he was always referred to as big man, or big fella. Must be an Irish thing.

    Good news!

    'Scorsese wanted us to look gaunt': Liam Neeson FINALLY reveals the reason for his weight loss as he speaks about new film Silence

    Earlier this year he sparked concern when he was pictured with a visibly slimmer and shockingly gaunt appearance.
    But Liam Neeson has settled the worries as he appeared at the Los Cabos Film Festival in Mexico at the weekend with a more robust physique.
    And the 63-year-old star finally revealed the reason for his weight loss, explaining it was all for a film role.


    All is revealed: During an appearance at the Los Cabos Film Festival in Mexico at the weekend, Liam Neeson finally explained the reason for his shocking weight loss, while also looking fuller and healthier


    Liam was at the movie event to promote his new film Silence, directed by Martin Scorsese and which also stars Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver.
    He confessed all about his surprising new appearance, revealing that he had lost '20 pounds' for his role as Father Cristóvão Ferreira in the film, which tells the tale of two Jesuit Portuguese priests who take a quest to Japan to spread the word of Christianity.


    'Martin requires this level of dedication and I think it pays off,' the Taken star said, as reported by Collider, making a direct reference to the effort he put in to lose a substantial amount of weight for the role.
    'Martin wanted us all to look a bit more gaunt, which Adam [Diver] and Andrew did as well. I know Adam went to the extreme. He's an ex-marine and when he's given an order, he follows it through. He was like something out of Auschwitz.







    He went on, about the film-maker: 'He's legendary - so as a performer you have to get over that. I had to get over that… He requires absolute silence on set, like everybody has to stop work when he's giving a direction or explaining a scene.
    'I mean everybody — the guy that's painting 400 yards away has to stop. If he hears one tiny sound, it's shattered for him so he commands that respect. He commands that silence and especially for this film it was necessary.'
    While information and images from the movie - based on Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel and based in 17th century Japan - have been scarce thus far, two photos from the forthcoming flick have now been revealed.
    One of them shows the full extent of Liam's 20lb weight loss, his face withdrawn with long hair and a beard covering much of his face, his clothes dirty and his expression wan.
    The other shows Andrew Garfield in the clutches of a tense moment, head-to-head with another actor from the film.
    Fans will be able to breathe a sigh of relief over his admission, as it was not made clear at the time when he was first spotted in July looking thin that it was for a job.
    The actor was unrecognisable as he walked through the streets of New York, his clothes hanging off his frail frame, his facial features sunken.
    At the time, a representative for the star told MailOnline of Liam's appearance: 'He has never been healthier.'
    Silence is set to be released in cinemas in 2016.

    ^Hmmmm, is that a still from the movie that he supposedly had to lose weight for? He looks better in that still than in the snapshots in real life from earlier this year. I hope he's right, but he really looked ill.

    He seemed to look fine when he was on Colbert last week, but his face was covered by obnoxious red facial hair for the skit.

    I'm not entirely convinced. He does look slightly better but still not a picture of health.

    That's some ballsy shit to do to yourself when you're basically in senior citizen territory. Hope he'll be fine.
    Apparently, another side effect of the weight loss is old lesbian syndrome.

    I'm not quite buying the story. His skin color was awful, though I suppose that can happen with extreme weight loss.

    He still looks underweight but I would guess that's because the safest way to return to a healthy weight after such a dramatic loss would be to do it gradually through a good, balanced diet. Perhaps that's what's happening here.
