Action star Liam Neeson (70) has revealed that he doesn't like filming sex scenes. "I want to be honest, when I see a sex scene I just can't look," he told Vanity Fair in an interview. It was "simply embarrassing" for him, explained the 70-year-old. "I know they're choreographed and stuff, but I don't need to see that."
"I don't like doing them," Neeson said. "I've done quite a few sex scenes and I would have preferred to leave it to the imagination, especially with the ladies, the actresses," said the Taken actor.
Keyword unpleasant: Neeson sees the conversation about bees and flowers with his son Daniel (26) as the “most embarrassing moment” he has ever experienced. However, on Thursday's "Watch What Happens Live" father and son disagreed on just how embarrassing it really was to talk openly about sex. Daniel didn't see it as the "most embarrassing moment" at least, but admitted it was "pretty weird".
How strange it will be to see Liam Neeson in a comedy role may soon become apparent. When asked about his potential involvement in a Naked Gun reboot, Neeson told Vanity Fair, "It's not a done deal yet." But "Seth MacFarlane is working on the script and Akiva Schaffer is writing and directing".
"So we'll see," said the action icon. "Doing comedy will be the end of my career or it will reach a new level," he predicted. With MacFarlane's "A Million Ways to Die in the West" he was at least involved in a comedy in 2014, but he also played a more serious role there.
