Rihanna finds love watching Liam Neeson
Sultry singer Rihanna has admitted to having a crush on Liam Neeson — ever since seeing his star turn in Schindler’s List.
The We Found Love star said she was completely star-struck when she discovered she would be working with the Ballymena-born Hollywood legend on upcoming movie Battleship, according to the Sun on Sunday.
“The first day Liam was on set, I was crazy nervous because I’ve loved him for years,” she revealed.
“He was amazing in Schindler’s List and so sexy in Rob Roy. I’ve always had a crush on him. He’s so tall and manly — what woman doesn’t have a crush on Liam Neeson?
“So I was basically hiding out in my trailer, asking for more make-up to be done, just stalling as much as I could. Like, I wanted to meet him but I was so scared.
“We’re finally introduced and I’m completely speechless — I don’t even know what I said, if it was English — and I’m looking down at my shoes.”
Rihanna said she was completely blown away when Liam asked her for a photo for his kids.
“I still haven’t said anything and he says, ‘Rihanna, would you mind if I got a photo with you? My sons will kill me if I don’t because they’re such big fans’.
“And I’m like, ‘only if I can get a photo with you’. No joke, when he left, I was like jumping around with my friend, we were like two little schoolgirls. Honestly, it’s one of the highlights of my life.
“But then I had to act with him in a scene and be real bad-ass and disrespectful. Now I should get an Oscar for that.”
