Superman Helps Liam Neeson Walk Again

CHRISTOPHER REEVE is helping LIAM NEESON recover from a near fatal motorcycle crash.

Neeson was riding his motorbike earlier this year (00) when he slammed into a deer and shattered his leg - and he's still learning how to walk properly after the accident. He says, "I'm not there yet. It was very humbling."

The PHANTOM MENACE actor has weekly telephone conversations with paraplegic Reeves, and he admits, "I listened to him talking on the telephone with his assisted breathing - and there was me worrying about getting around on cutches. "He got my head in order." (MB/TG/CPT)
