Liam Neeson was made to feel uncomfortable during his interview on The View. On February 15, the Marlowe actor appeared on the ABC daytime chat show and was unhappy with his segment.
“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,” he told Rolling Stone in an interview. “I go onstage and join the ladies during the break, and I was congratulating them on this discussion.”
Neeson continued, “And then our segment starts and it’s just all this BS with Joy [Behar] 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?”
However, Neeson did say that he “had a little chat afterward” with former prosecutor Sunny Hostin and called it an “intelligent conversation.”
“But then the segment’s all about this — of —thirteen, fourteen-year-old crush. It’s just a bit embarrassing,” he added.
At the beginning of the interview, Behar hinted that they talk about Neeson so much on the show, which prompted co-host Ana Navarro to correct her and say, “You talk about him so much.”
“Oh, shut up, don’t blow my cover-up,” Behar quipped while Alyssa Farah Griffin joked saying that the comedian wanted to be “taken” by the actor.
Later, Behar joked that she received a late Valentine’s Day card from Neeson but would soon find that he had given one to each of them.
Hostin went on to say that “he wrote something very special on mine,” suggesting that Behar’s letter was generic. Navarro requested that Neeson add another heart to Behar’s card to make it more unique.
The show then promoted a supercut of all the times Behar brought up Neeson on the show, frequently joking about having her ashes sprinkled all over him and being “arouses” by the Taken films.
“You received the checks, right” Neeson joked right after the clips leaving Behar speechless and jokingly calling out producer Brian Teta for “embarrassing” her.
By the end of Neeson’s segment during the second block, Behar repeated his infamous line from Taken, “I will find you and I will kill you.”
Neeson then said, “Oh Joy, stop it. Get a life!”
While the co-hosts chuckled, Whoopi ended the segment by jokingly saying she was “afraid” to welcome Neeson back because of the chaos he caused among the co-hosts.
