Natasha Richardson's Son Micheál Says He Hasn't 'Fully Comprehended' Her 2009 Death
Also speaking to Vanity Fair, Neeson revealed that he is supportive of his son’s desire to pursue a career as an actor, but he initially had some concerns.
"The acting profession is about many things, and one of those is rejection," Neeson explained in an email to the publication. "If you get an audition and don’t get a recall and then don’t get the part and subsequently the job, it’s got nothing to do with your upbringing or what schools you attended; you’re rejected because of YOU; how you look, sound, the space you occupy as a human being. That is f—— tough."
He added, "So one has to be sensitive in order to do the 'work' and be able to hone that sensitivity, and yet one has to develop a 'thick skin' to not let the rejections wear you down: You have to desensitize. It’s crazy."

Micheál also revealed that he is thankful his mother chose acting as a career because it means she's immortalized forever on film, though he revealed he hasn't seen all of his parents' films.
When asked about his favorite of his mom's roles, Micheál shared, "Just based off of who she is and how I remember her, it has to be The Parent Trap," before adding, "That’s more or less what she was like. She was this sweet, amazing mother figure, my best friend."
And for his dad? Micheál said his favorite film of Neeson's is 1993's Schindler's List, which earned the actor an Academy Award nomination.
