Widower Liam Neeson spotted out with new woman

Actor Liam Neeson may have a new girlfriend. The 58-year-old actor was recently spotted dining at London's Nobu restaurant with a female companion and holding hands in the street.

The Daily Mail reports that the woman is businesswoman Freya St Johnston, a longtime friend of Neeson's who he's just recently been able to catch up with.

And though both are keeping mum on the subject -- Johnston told press, "I am not saying anything whatsoever" -- they did look awfully close.

This would mark Neeson's first public romance since the sudden death of his wife, actress Natasha Richardson, in March 2009.
