Liam Neeson:What my wife has on her tombstone, I guess that's my favorite now: "Cast your bread upon the water, and it will be returned tenfold." That's not the direct quote, but that's what I put on her gravestone. She was always saying that to me, you know? Where I'd be going, "Eh, I'm not sure." She'd say the opposite. I would always say the glass is half empty, and she would always say half full. Always. But I'm changing, I think.
GQ:Do you still have faith?
Liam Neeson:I think I do. I mean, I don't practice. But it's not far from me. And I have faith in the power of theater, which is quite similar—a body of people seeing something being enacted. It's at least 4,000 years old; I see how that can move people and change attitudes, the power. I believe in that faith. Since my wife passed away, do I believe in an afterlife? I don't know.
GQ:What's your epitaph?
Liam Neeson:I don't know. Tasha, she's buried up near our house. Old cemetery. Her grandmother, too. I go see Tasha once or twice a week. Just to talk. I like it.... There's a Civil War soldier near her. I look at his headstone a lot. All it says is GRIT AND GRACE.
