During an appearance on The View, Liam Neeson was made to feel uneasy. On February 15, the Marlowe actor appeared on the ABC daytime talk program and was unimpressed with his segment.
“I was in the dressing room, drinking a cup of tea, and I turned on the TV, thinking, oh, this will be great.” “They’re talking about gun violence in America, and I agree that it’s an American problem,” he said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “During the break, I join the ladies onstage, and I congratulate 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 said that he “had a little chat afterward” with former prosecutor Sunny Hostin, which he described as an “intelligent conversation.”
“But then there’s this — oof —thirteen, fourteen-year-old crush.” “It’s just a little embarrassing,” he continued.
Behar suggested at the start of the interview that they talk about Neeson a lot on the show, prompting co-host Ana Navarro to correct her and say, “You talk about him a lot.”
“Oh, shut up, don’t blow my cover-up,” Behar joked, while Alyssa Farah Griffin joked that the comic would like to be “taken” by the actor.
Later, Behar quipped that she received a late Valentine’s Day card from Neeson but would later discover that he had given one to each of them. Hostin said that “he wrote something exceptional on mine,” implying that Behar’s message was generic. Navarro requested that Neeson put another heart on Behar’s card to make it more memorable.
The program 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 “aroused” by the Taken films.
“You got the checks, right?” Neeson joked, leaving Behar speechless and playfully calling out producer Brian Teta for “embarrassing” her.
By the end of Neeson’s second-block segment, Behar had repeated his notorious Taken line, “I will find you, and I will kill you.”
“Oh Joy, stop it,” Neeson said. Get a grip!”
As the co-hosts laughed, Whoopi ended the segment by jokingly saying she was “afraid” to ask Neeson back because of the chaos he caused among the co-hosts.
