Neeson shares Woody Allen story

Liam Neeson starred in Woody Allen's Husbands And Wives

Liam Neeson has revealed Woody Allen was directing him in a sex scene when news of his affair with Soon-Yi Previn broke.

The Taken star said he and actress Judy Davis were in bed making 1992 comedy drama Husbands And Wives when director Woody got a call saying his wife Mia Farrow had discovered photos of him with her adopted daughter Soon-Yi.

Liam, 52, told GQ: "There was one incident - people think I've made this up, but no.

"There's a scene where I'm (performing a sex act) on Judy Davis, right. Judy and I are in bed - obviously covered up - and ... Judy's having this monologue in her head.

"And the crew are all ready, and we're waiting for Woody. No-show. It's starting to get a bit uncomfortable - it's a bed scene.

"Anyway, he came out after about 20 minutes and said, 'Okay. Camera starts on Judy. Liam, I want to just see the top of your head. Okay, we know where you're going...'

"So there was no apology; nothing. What happened: His lawyer had gotten in touch with him to say Ms Farrow has found naked photographs of her adopted daughter [Soon-Yi]."

Woody and Mia later split and the director is still married to Soon-Yi.

Leo:

Rebelling against outmoded conventions is liberating. Usually, you're comfortable with tradition. In this situation, you realise the old ways are a liability. Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
