(Newser) – Liam Neeson and his boys are “taking each day as it comes,” he tells ABC. In his first interview since wife Natasha died in March, Neeson says his two sons, ages 13 and 12, are “getting along as best they can." The actor says he's "still getting extraordinary condolence letters from American people that's deeply touching," and that outreach helped cinch his decision to become a US citizen.

He also paid tribute to Ted Kennedy: "I met him a couple of times over the years, and he wrote my family a very, very beautiful, touching condolence letter when Natasha died earlier this year. He was a special man. It's the end of an era."
