Helen Mirren and Liam Neeson were on Graham Norton Show show this week, promoting separate projects (Neeson The Commuter and Mirren the movie Winchester. Norton reminded us of a fact that many had forgotten: That Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren had once dated. In fact, it was more than just dating — they lived together for four years.

Glueing hair to his penis! We’ve all been there.
