Neeson didn’t appreciate being subject of Joy Behar’s “crush.”

Last week, veteran actor Liam Neeson made an appearance on the ABC daytime talk show The View. Prior to the segment in which he appeared, the discussion was generally serious, which Neeson was looking forward to participating in, but once he came on, the show took a turn he was uncomfortable with.

“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,” Neeson said about the show in an interview with Rolling Stone. “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 [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?”

Neeson did get to have what he called an “intelligent conversation” with former prosecutor Sunny Hostin after his segment. “But then the segment’s all about this — oof —thirteen, fourteen-year-old crush. It’s just a bit embarrassing,” he said.
