Liam Neeson didn’t enjoy his time as a guest on “The View.”
Looks like Liam Neeson won’t be returning as a guest on “The View.”
The Irish actor, 70, described his appearance on the ABC talk show last week as “embarrassing”, telling Rolling Stone the whole segment left him “uncomfortable”.
While appearing on the show, co-host Joy Behar couldn’t help but express her longtime crush on the “Taken” actor.
In fact, the segment included a montage of clips showing Behar making bizarre on-air comments such as “I just wish my ashes were sprinkled on Liam Neeson.”
As the actor promoted his new film ‘Marlowe’ – which marks his 100th film – one of the show’s panelists remarked, ‘Joy wants to get fucked by you.’
“I was in the locker room having a cup of tea, I turned on the TV and thought, oh, this will be great,” Neeson told the magazine.
“They talk about gun violence in America, and I agree that it’s an American problem. I go on stage and join the ladies during the break, and I congratulate them on this discussion.
“And then our segment starts, and it’s just all this BS with Joy and Liam Neeson and having a crush, and I’ve known Whoopi for years and Joy a bit, but I just wasn’t impressed,” a- he continued, adding, “I’m uncomfortable in these situations, you know?”
The actor said he then had a “good, smart chat” with co-host Sunny Hostin after the on-air segment.
“But then the segment is all about this thirteen, fourteen year old crush. It’s just kinda awkward,” he added.
The actor has had an outspoken streak in recent weeks, including when he sensationally called UFC star Conor McGregor a “little leprechaun.”
“That little pixie Conor McGregor, he’s giving Ireland a bad name,” Neeson told Men’s Health earlier this month. “I know he’s in good shape and I admire him for that. But I can’t bear it.
Neeson also said he “can’t stand” the UFC as he compared it to a “bar fight”.
