Liam Neeson Gets Revenge On Joy Behar: “I just wasn’t impressed, a bit embarrassing”
Hollywood star Liam Neeson got revenge on Joy Behar and others at The View after he was left unimpressed with the crew after appearing on the show to promote his new film “Marlowe,” his 100th film
Liam said: “I was in the dressing room drinking a cup of tea, turned the TV up, and I thought, oh, this will be great. 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.
“I’m uncomfortable in those situations, you know?
“One of the ladies, Sunny Hostin, is a prosecutor and we had a little chat afterward and it was a good, intelligent conversation, but then the segment’s all about this — oof —thirteen, fourteen-year-old crush. It’s just a bit embarrassing,” he said.
Below is the interaction that left Neeson embarrassed.
“Joy will believe anything that you say because it’s no secret that Joy thinks you’re the hottest and the greatest ever,’ Sunny said to Liam. “And in case there was any doubt, we have a few times she’s brought you up over the years, I think we have some video.”
To Joy’s horror, a montage of clips then began playing of her gushing over the star. Joy can be seen saying: “I would just like to have my ashes sprinkled over Liam Neeson.
“There’s room in my heart for Steve (her husband) and for Liam Neeson, let’s say.
“I mean Liam Neeson right now, those kidnapping movies that he does get me so aroused, I can’t tell you.”
After the montage ended an embarrassed Joy said:
“Am I blushing? Am I blushing?”
Liam tried to calm Joy down with a joke: “You received the checks, right?”
Joy said: “I have. I’m sorry, I’m speechless at this point.
“How embarrassing when they put them all together like that.”
Joy then yelled at The View producer behind the scenes:’That was evil, Brian. Embarrassing me…and Liam.”
According to The Daily Mail:
Minutes before Joy’s co-hosts gleefully revealed the video montage, the 80-year-old comedian had been waxing lyrical about Liam and his acting abilities, telling him: ‘We talk about you so much, I feel like you’ve been here.’
Ana Navarro then retorted: ‘Um, you talk about him so much!’
‘Joy wants to get taken by you,’ Alyssa Farah Griffin joked, prompting Joy to fly into an impersonation of Liam in the Taken movies.
‘I will find you and I will kill you!’ she said while pointing at the cameras. ‘I love it.’
Whoopi Goldberg then jumped in to diffuse the awkwardness left lingering by Joy’s Taken rendition, returning the talk to Liam’s latest movie endeavor, Marlowe.
‘Sooo… Phillip Marlowe,’ she said, while awkwardly staring into the camera. ‘Why Philip Marlowe?’
But while the conversation lingered on Marlowe for a few quick minutes, Joy soon circled back to her fondness for the actor, telling him: ‘So I got this Valentine from you today,’ while opening up a white envelope.
‘It says: “Happy belated Valentine’s Day, Liam X” and I was like, “Ooooh.”
