  • Liam Neeson Calls Sexual Harassment Allegations Against Hollywood Men

Liam Neeson has expressed his scepticism about the sexual misconduct allegations now sweeping through Hollywood and the entertainment industry, in an uncomfortable appearance on Irish television.

Liam Neeson was on the Late Late Show last night and gave his opinion on the string of sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood.

"You do silly things and it becomes superstitious".

Hoffman has been accused of harassment and assault by multiple women, charges which he has strenuously denied.

In response to Hunter's allegations Hoffman issued a statement saying the incident "is not reflective of who I am". "I'm not saying I've done similar things to what he did - apparently he touched some girls' breasts - but it's childhood stuff".

Neeson's comments echo those of French actress Catherine Deneuve, who said men are being "punished summarily, forced out of their jobs when all they did was touch someone's knee or try to steal a kiss".

The "Taken" actor was slammed on Twitter for his comments.

Actor Liam Neeson came to Dustin Hoffman's defense in an interview after Hoffman was accused of harassment and assault. I don't see anyone saying the same about throwing pencils at your coworkers, hurling verbal abuse at them, or being chronically late.

Neeson: "There is a movement happening."

In an interview on Ireland's "The Late Late Show", the 65-year-old addressed the growing slew of accusations in the industry stemming from the bombshell claims against Harvey Weinstein in October, reported The Hill. He said that he thought the female-led #MeToo moment was "healthy", he added that he also thought it had resulted in "a bit of a witch hunt".

Neeson did say that the movement sweeping through Hollywood is "healthy" for the film industry. "The focus seems to be on Hollywood at the minute", he said.

Neeson continued, speaking about his time as a UNICEF ambassador and the hardships that women around the world endure. I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me. "What's more, on the off chance that you read the stuff I've perused about how female workers are being dealt with in ranches, farms, and all whatever remains of it, it's chilling". I really like Liam, but just, no.,"social media user Nicola Brennan wrote".
