Liam Neeson Admits To Rape Revenge Fantasy

Liam Neeson Ashamed

Liam Neeson Ashamed

Liam Neeson gave an interview with the UK Independent that is, quite frankly, freakish and frightening - and really can't be condensed into a single headline.

The red carpet at the premiere of Liam Neeson's newest film has been abruptly canceled amid fallout from the actor's comments about decades-old thoughts he had about killing a black person.

Amid a wave of controversy and condemnation over his comments, Neeson spoke to GMA on Tuesday.

Liam Neeson arrives at Good Morning America for an interview on Tuesday (February 5) in New York City.

"I'm not racist. This was almost 40 years ago". "She would say, 'Where are you going?' and I would say, 'I'm just going out for a walk.' You know? It's bad, but I did learn a lesson from it, when I eventually thought, 'What the fuck are you doing?' You know?" It was a man? When she came back she told me about this and she handled the situation herself with incredible bravery, I have to say that. "Until I caught myself on".

"I was trying to show honour to and stand up for my dear friend in this bad medieval fashion".

Lakers have 'talked' about deal for Jabari Parker
The Lakers and Parker have been linked before. "Caldwell-Pope is available and has been floated out there for some spots". Perhaps the Lakers feel the former No. 2 overall pick still has potential and would do well in their organization.

"I'm a fairly intelligent guy, and that's why it kind of shocked me when I came down to Earth after having these disgusting feelings".

After that, he says he sought help from a priest and close friends. "I had two very good friends I talked to, and believe it or not - power walking - to get rid of this".

Roberts confronted Neeson about how he asked his friend about the color of her attacker and not his size, weight, and other features. "I was trying to show honour to my, stand up for my dear friend in this awful, medieval fashion", Neeson replied. "I have more respect for him now than if he had come out and said, 'I view all black people as equal, I just view everybody as equal'". "Violence breeds violence, bigotry breeds bigotry". He added that growing up in Northern Ireland during the Troubles had given him insight into the "primal need for revenge" and how destructive that can be.

At the end of the interview, Neeson asked journalist Clemence Michallon if she would handle his story "carefully" and then joked "I will find you" - a reference to his hit film Taken - if she didn't.

When asked if he would have had the name reaction if his friend's rapist was a white man or another race, Neeson said "definitely". Luckily no violence occurred, ever. "You admitted this", she said.

"I think the average moviegoer thinks, 'Yeah, punch him". But many have reacted to Neeson's story in surprise - and disgust - given the actor had never publicly admitted to this racist impulse before.
