Liam Neeson Admits He Was 'Uncomfortable' After Joy Behar Thirsted Over Him On 'The View'

The 'Taken' actor was all set to talk about important subjects, but instead found himself in the middle of a 'thirteen, fourteen-year-old crush' by 'The View' co-host.

Last week, Liam Neeson chatted with the ladies of The View to promote his new movie Marlowe. Neeson, however, found himself in an "uncomfortable" situation when co-host Joy Behar made her fondness of the actor blatantly apparent.

At one point, an old clip played showing Behar morbidly joking she wanted her ashes to be spread all over Neeson when she's gone.

At the wrapping of the segment, Whoopi Goldberg admitted she was "afraid" to have him back as a guest on the show.

You can watch a montage of the more cringeworthy moments below.

As you can imagine, Neeson was less than humored by his interaction with the co-host.

He told Rolling Stone:

"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."

But then, he revealed, things took a turn.

"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, fourtenen-year-old crush."
"It's just a bit embarrassing."

Viewers of the segment wholeheartedly agreed with the Taken star, many noting that if the roles were reversed, similar behavior from a male would be completely unacceptable.

Fortunately, during breaks from Behar's thirsting, Neeson did get a chance to address some more serious topics, with Behar engaging in conversation about the 30th anniversary of Neeson's film Schindler's List and asking him for his thoughts on anti-Semitism in America.
