Hollywood actor, Liam Neeson has made some shocking revelations about his actions in the past.
According to the Star Wars and Taken actor, he once roamed the streets for days hoping to kill a “black bastard” who raped someone close to him.
In an interview with The Independent, Neeson admitted he was ashamed of his past “awful” behaviour which was made out of a desire to carry out revenge.
He recalled how devastated he was to hear the about the rape after he returned from an overseas trip.
He said: “She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way but my immediate reaction was I asked, did she know who it was? No. What colour were they? She said it was a black person.
“I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d approached by somebody. I’m ashamed to say that, and I did it for maybe a week hoping some [Neeson gestures air quotes with his fingers] ‘black bastard’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him.”
Although he was able to fight off the urge to carry out the revenge, Neeson said it took him about a week or a week and a half to process what had happened.
“It was horrible, horrible, when I think back, that I did that…
He added, “I understand that need for revenge, but it just leads to more revenge, to more killing and more killing.”
