It's hard to imagine anyone having a bad word to say about our Liam - but it seems the Taken star's 'particular set of skills' isn't to everyone's liking.

American talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live features a humorous segment where it gets celebrities to read out loud "mean" things people have said about them on the internet.

It is done to the background music of REM's Everybody Hurts - they then suitably react to what has been said.

Typically it is a pre-recorded segment and has featured huge names in the world of music, acting and showbiz.

The talk show even managed to get President Barack Obama to read out what people on Twitter had said about him.

Last night Liam Neeson joined in on a live version of the segment.

He joined a list of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Bette Midler.

First up was Johnson: “I’m really sick of seeing The Rock… blah blah blah Dwayne Johnson… blah blah blah candy a*s movie star… blah blah blah go such it.”

He responded: “I’ll give you something to suck.”

Next up was Bette Midler, who read: “Some people ask me who has the biggest penis in Hollywood. Easy. Bette Midler.”

She seemed to take it as a compliment as she grinned and smiled before leaving the stage.

It was then Ballymena born Neeson’s turn to be grilled.

He read: “Liam Neeson is a butterface.

“In that his face looks like a butt. Eat s**t fart breath Neeson."

Which prompted a very sad face from Neeson who skulked off the stage.
