Liam Neeson didn't hear from ski resort after wife's tragic death

Actor LIAM NEESON has expressed his disgust after bosses at the Canadian ski resort where his wife NATASHA RICHARDSON suffered a tragic accident in 2009 failed to reach out to the widower following her death.

The British actress, 45, sustained a traumatic brain injury after falling during a beginner's skiing lesson at the Mont Tremblant Resort in Quebec and she died on 18 March, 2009 after being transferred to a hospital in New York City, where she lived with Neeson and their two sons.

The Taken star recently opened up about his loss during a candid TV interview with newsman Anderson Cooper, in which he admitted her death, which was ruled accidental, still doesn't feel "real".

Neeson went on to discuss the lack of remorse shown by resort executives, but that part didn't make the final edit of the hour-long program.

He revealed the news during an appearance on talk show Watch What Happens Live on Thursday (27Feb14), when host Andy Cohen asked if it was tough for him to speak so candidly about his late wife.

Neeson replied, "It was and it wasn't (hard to open up). It was time to talk about it. And there were some other things I said that got edited out, that I wish had been kept in."

He continued, "The ski resort where Natasha met her death... We got hundreds, maybe a couple thousand, sympathy cards, emails, and stuff from all over the world, especially America - not one from that ski resort. I kid you not. Not one."
