Liam Neeson, 63, has fans very concerned over his frail figure lately. The Taken actor noticeably began dropping weight in recent months, but he looked the thinnest he’s been yet when stepping out in New York City on Sept. 14. HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY spoke to nutrition expert Lisa De Fazio, who weighed in on Liam’s unhealthy appearance and the dangers he faces having such a frail figure.
“Liam Neeson is 6’4″. He previously weighed 225 pounds, and now he appears to weigh around 165 pounds,” Lisa tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He does not look healthy, his face is gaunt, his legs are very thin and his overall frame is frail.” In the shocking new pics, the award-winning actor covers his thin figure in baggy clothes, but you can also tell from his face he lost a significant amount of weight.

While it’s unclear if Liam has lost weight for a new role, Lisa says his weight loss is in no way healthy, and in fact, very dangerous. “Losing this much weight can lead to muscle wasting, malnutrition, anemia, stress on the heart and he is now more vulnerable to getting sick, especially with pneumonia,” she continues. “Being underweight makes your immune system weak and your body has a difficult time protecting itself and fighting illness.” So scary.
However, despite his weight loss, Liam’s publicist tells HollywoodLife.com: “[Liam] is lean and mean and very healthy.” That’s great, and a huge relief! The busy actor has a ton of projects coming up in 2016, including films Operation Chromite and A Monster Calls.
