Another sad chapter in the saga of Lindsay Lohan went down when the actress stopped by Watch What Happens Live Thursday night.
Ostensibly there to promote Lindsay, which concludes its run this Sunday, Andy Cohen wasted no time playing one of the show’s most popular games with the actress — Plead the Fifth, where the guest is asked three dish-y questions and allowed to “plead the fifth” on only one. And naturally, Cohen used this opportunity to ask Lohan about the alleged “sex list” that’s been making the rounds in the tabloids. His exact question for her: “Recently, an »

Liam Neeson's keeping it really real. The actor covers the April issue of GQ magazine, where he opens up about Woody Allen's family scandal, how he's been doing since tragically losing his wife Natasha Richardson in 2009 and raising their children. The "Taken" star is good friends with Woody's ex-wife Mia Farrow, and was actually working with the director the day Allen found out Mia had discovered some inappropriate pictures of his then-adopted daughter/now-wife. While he loves Allen as a director, there was one moment on set that Liam will never forget. Warning: Some explicit language ahead."There’s a scene where I’m going down on Judy Davis, right. Judy and I are in bed -- obviously covered up -- and as I’m going down, Judy’s having this monologue in her head. And the crew are all ready, and we’re waiting for Woody. No-show. »

While promoting his new action film "Non-Stop," Liam Neeson spoke about why he turned down the chance to play James Bond. This was nearly two decades ago, when the producers eventually went with Pierce Brosnan. They considered Neeson, Mel Gibson, Sam Neill and Hugh Grant. Nesson explained that producers were very serious about handing him the franchise, but it was his late wife (then girlfriend) Natasha Richardson (The Parent Trap) who persuaded him against taking the job. "I was heavily courted, let's put it that way, and I'm sure some other actors were too," he explained. "It was about 18 or 19 years ago and my wife-to-be said, 'If you play James Bond we're not getting married!' And I had to take that on board, because I did want to marry her." »
It's never been a secret that Liam Neeson was at one time in contention for the role of James Bond, but what we didn't know he turned it down.

Around that time the Irish actor was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role for the role of Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg's 1993 masterpiece Schindler's List. He explains that his then-girlfriend/now late wife, Natasha Richardson ("The Parent Trap"), had »
