Neeson, 70, trashed “The View” during an interview with Rolling Stone.

He had initially looked forward to his time on “The View” as he watched the show from his dressing room. The actor was eager to discuss gun violence in America and wanted to express he was in agreement with the hosts that it was an “American problem” and advocate for gun control.

“I go onstage and join the ladies during the break, and I was congratulating them on this discussion. And then our segment starts and it’s just all this BS with Joy [Behar] and Liam Neeson and having a crush, and I’ve known Whoopi [Goldberg] for years and Joy a little bit, but I just wasn’t impressed. I’m uncomfortable in those situations, you know? One of the ladies [Sunny Hostin] is a prosecutor and we had a little chat afterward and it was a good, intelligent conversation, but then the segment’s all about this 13-, 14-year-old crush. It’s just a bit embarrassing,” he recounted to Rolling Stone.

Co-host Sunny Hostin cringingly told Neeson during the segment that Joy Behar would believe anything he says because she thinks he is the “hottest and the greatest ever.”

Clips were aired with juvenile fantasies such as Behar saying she “would like to have my ashes sprinkled over Liam Neeson.”

Liam Neeson right now, those kidnapping movies get me so aroused I can’t even begin to tell you,” Behar slobbered in another clip fantasizing out loud, referring to the “Taken” series.

During the Rolling Stone interview, Neeson discussed a number of his movies including his latest, “Marlowe,” where he plays a detective in the crime thriller. It is his 100th film.

“Your detective investigates the underbelly of Hollywood in ‘Marlowe.’ What are your thoughts on the industry? I understand you have a place in upstate New York and don’t live in Los Angeles,” Rolling Stone asked the Irish-born actor.

He replied that he lived in Los Angeles for just over three years before he left. He claims he’s always viewed acting as a “business.”

We’ve all heard the stories of Hollywood in the ‘30s and ‘40s — heads of studios, tales of actors like Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney being fed drugs so they can be ‘peppy’ and ready for the next day’s work. The casting couch, of course. We’ve all heard those stories. I never got involved in that. To me, it was just always a business. There were executives that I met at these pre-screening parties, and we had nothing in common. Not all of them. But the whole business aspect of it I just leave to my agents,” he claimed.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Neeson expressed his dislike for filming sex scenes and says he finds them embarrassing.

“I’ve done quite a few sex scenes and I would have preferred to leave it to the imagination, especially for ladies, the actresses,” he noted.

Neeson has starred in popular films such as “Schindler’s List,” “Michael Collins,” “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,” the “Taken” series, “Unknown,” “Gangs of New York,” and “Love Actually.”
