Liam Neeson is in the pink of health despite significant weight loss, which was revealed to be for a role in "Silence."

A report from Radar Online said that all the health concerns regarding Liam Neeson's weight loss are overblown as the actor is "as healthy as ever and as hungry for work as ever."

"[Neeson] blames the weight loss on his changing diet, which was meant to just shave a bit off his beer gut for his movie 'Silence' but went a little too far," the source added. "He cut a lot of calories and started just drinking black coffee.

 Liam Neeson was snapped in recent weeks looking very frail from the dramatic weight loss that is a far cry from his tough guy persona in "Taken."

 "The 63-year-old actor, famed for his on-screen action roles, covered up his leaner frame in baggy casual clothes as he headed to the Atlantic Grill eatery," said Daily Mail.

But rep for Liam Neeson denied that the actor is suffering from any illness.

"The rep says the 63-year-old actor is 'healthy as ever,' despite his ghostly appearance in the pic," said TMZ. The rep adds Neeson changed his diet and started doing more exercise about a year ago and credits that for the weight loss."

The rep also claimed that the photograph that showed Liam Neeson looking like he lost a lot of weight was just an "unflattering pic."

According to Radar Online, Liam Neeson is still very aggressive in looking for roles that he could play despite the apparent weight loss, as he is set to make a trip to Asia to take part in a Korean film production.

"This is a minor glitch he's fixing and he's going after some very big movie jobs - he's not slowing down in the slightest," the source told the tabloid.
