He may be one of Hollywood's toughest action heroes but everyone is afraid of something and for  6' 4" Liam Neeson, its heights.

The 62-year-old star told People.com, "I'm a wimp about heights. I just am. We're all human, aren't we? Somebody might freak out over a snake or a spider.

"I don't - I pick spiders up and put them outside and stuff. But put me on a chair to fix a lamp or something, and then, boom."

On starring in action movies like Taken and his newest film A Walk Among The Tombstones, Neeson added, "It's like being a kid in a toy shop. They're offering . . . I try and do the good ones. It's not going to last forever, so I'm hanging out while the sun's shining."
