Liam Neeson is scared of heights

Liam NeesonLiam Neeson, 62, is scared of heights. The actor, whose new movie A Walk Among the Tombstones opened yesterday, admits he suffers from acrophobia and can’t even manage to stand on a chair to fix a bulb in a lamp because of the extreme fear, but he insists he’s not embarrassed by it because everyone has their own weaknesses. Speaking to PEOPLE.com, he said: ”I’m a wimp about heights. I just am. We’re all just human, aren’t we? Somebody might freak out over a snake or a spider. I don’t – I pick spiders up and put them outside and stuff. But put me on a chair to fix a lamp or something and then, boom.”
Meanwhile, the star – who has sons Micheal, 19, and Daniel, 18, with his late wife Natasha Richardson – has become a fixture in adrenaline-fuelled blockbusters like Taken, and admits he’s not ready to retire just yet and is trying to make the most of the exciting roles. He explained: ”It’s like being a kid in a toy shop. They’re offering them … I try and do the good ones. It’s not going to last forever, so I’m hanging out while the sun’s shining.”
