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]."
