U2 frontman Bono comforted Liam Neeson’s children after the death of their mother

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Bono, frontman of U2, is known for his charitable work along with his music but it appears that Bono is also a great friend in a time of need.

Liam Neeson sat down for an interview with 60 Minutes and he spoke about how Bono and his family had been close friends and that after the passing of his wife Natasha Richardson, he was a support system for himself and his children.

The Taken star opened up about a moment that Bono shared with his son. “Bono is a pal and he came ’round to dinner, and I remember he was sitting beside Micheál and just out of the blue he said, ‘What age are you Micheál?” And he said, ‘Thirteen.’ And [Bono] said. ‘Yeah, that’s the age I was when I lost my mum.’"

Neeson was overwhelmed by the words from Bono. “That was it. And I—I could’ve kissed for it,” he gushed. “He was like saying, ‘You know, I lost my mom at this age and I’m doing okay. And you will do okay too."

In Touch Weekly reported that Richardson died after a skiing accident on March 16, 2009.

Neeson has made over twenty films since the passing of his wife back in 2009, E! News reported.

He added that the past five years have been rough but he is focusing on his family and keeping busy.
