It appears that Liam Neeson will not be gracing us with his presence on “The View” for a second time.
Last week, the 70-year-old Irish actor’s experience on the ABC talk show was incredibly “embarrassing” and made him feel extremely “uncomfortable.” He openly discussed this in an interview with Rolling Stone.
During his appearance on the show, Joy Behar couldn’t hide her longstanding admiration for the “Taken” actor.
The segment went on to present a compilation of clips that featured Behar making peculiar remarks, such as “I would just like to have my ashes sprinkled over Liam Neeson.”
On the show, a panelist remarked to the actor in admiration of his new movie “Marlowe”–his 100th feature film–stating that “Joy wants to get taken by you.”
“I was in the dressing room drinking a cup of tea, turned the TV up, and I thought, oh, this will be great,” Neeson said to the magazine.
“They’re talking about gun violence in America, and I agree that it’s an American problem. I go onstage and join the ladies during the break, and I was congratulating 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 little bit, but I just wasn’t impressed,” he added, “I’m uncomfortable in those situations, you know?”
Following the on-air segment, the actor divulged that he had a “good, intelligent conversation” conversation with co-host Sunny Hostin.
“But then the segment’s all about this thirteen, fourteen-year-old crush. It’s just a bit embarrassing,” he continued.
Recently, the actor has been extremely vocal with his opinions – particularly when he dubbed mixed-martial artist Conor McGregor “a little leprechaun” in a stunning statement.
“That little leprechaun Conor McGregor, he gives Ireland a bad name,” Neeson said earlier this month. “I know he’s fit, and I admire him for that. But I can’t take it.”
He also stated he “can’t stand” the UFC as he likened it to a “bar fight.”
