Romantic Paris break, with a Guinness, for Liam and his new love

ACTOR Liam Neeson has taken a break in the city of love with his new flame.

The 59-year-old heart-throb was spotted in Paris yesterday with Freya St Johnston, enjoying a taste of home as he toasted a pint to Arthur Guinness.

Moving on with his life after the untimely death of his wife Natasha Richardson two years ago, the Antrim man appears to have found happiness again with PR guru Freya.

Thirty-six year-old Freya appeared happy and relaxed with her superstar man, as they chatted over a drink in Paris last night at exclusive Hotel Mandarin Oriental.

Rumours about the relationship first aired when the couple were snapped leaving trendy London restaurant Nobu last year.

Introduced by mutual friends, romance has blossomed over the past year.

Confirming their newfound love, the two enjoyed a romantic break on the French Riviera with pals in July.

They were pictured holidaying in the luxurious resort of St Tropez in the south of France -- a regular vacation spot for the A-Team actor and his children, Michael (15) and Daniel (14).

With two boys of her own, blonde business executive Freya bears a striking resemblance to British actress Natasha -- a member of the famed Redgrave dynasty.

Neeson is currently promoting his latest blockbuster The Grey, but took a well-deserved break from work yesterday to join in with the celebrations for Arthur's Day.

In his latest flick -- which sees him reunite with A-Team director Joe Carnahan -- Liam plays the part of an oil-rig crew member who is forced to take on the Alaskan wilderness.

Friends are said to be delighted for the Oscar nominee, who tragically lost his wife Natasha in 2009, following a ski accident while on a winter holiday with family and friends in Canada.

The pair met in 1993 as they performed on Broadway together, but were in separate relationships at the time.

They soon split from their respective partners and married in 1994 before going on to start a family.
