Liam Neeson on Woody Allen’s Naked Photos of Soon-Yi Previn
Posted by Adam
LIAM Neeson was filming a sex scene for Woody Allen at the very moment the director received a call that his long-term partner Mia Farrow had discovered naked photos Allen took of Farrow’s adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn.
Neeson starred with Farrow in Allen’s 1992 drama Husbands and Wives, and was in bed with actress Judy Davis when Allen suddenly went missing.
“There was one incident — people think I’ve made this up, but no,” Neeson reveals in GQ magazine’s April issue.
“There’s a scene where I’m [performing a sex act] on Judy Davis, right. Judy and I are in bed — obviously covered up . . . the crew are all ready, and we’re waiting for Woody. No-show. It’s starting to get a bit uncomfortable.
“Anyway, he came out after about 20 minutes . . . 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].”
Neeson says that he and Farrow formed a bond and she later gave him love advice regarding Natasha Richardson, whom Neeson married in 1994.
“A few months later, Mia was doing a film with Natasha in Ireland,” he relates. “We had a couple of Guinnesses one night, and I told [Mia] I was going to marry this woman.”
