Liam Neeson was more than happy show off his body to raise cash for cancer research.
The Northern Irish actor stripped down to just his briefs and get soaked for the good cause on the Ellen DeGeneres show yesterday.
Liam Neeson was given the option of boxers or briefs by the chat show host when he appeared on the hit daytime TV show.
And he had no hesitation in going for the more daring number, no doubt because he was attracted to the garment’s more vivid shade of pink.
Ellen DeGeneres told him: “You are setting the bar high. Whoever follows you.”
An audience member was duly pulled on stage to throw balls at a target while he would sit in his dressing gown in the gunk tank, with $10,000 going to cancer research if she was successful.
But Liam Neeson had no hesitation in raising the stakes, saying: “If I take this off does the 10 thousand become 20 thousand?”
Ellen DeGeneres replied: “I’ll make that happen if you take that off and go sit in that chair.”
But when the 60-year-old jokingly tried to squeeze out more cash by asking how much it would earn if he took off the briefs too, Ellen DeGeneres insisted he keep them on.
She said: “We get fined if you take those off. I mean, some people might enjoy it, but…”
When his time finally came, a mixture of cheers and guffaws came as he showed off his physique.
And the amusing visual illusion created when he sat down on the chair was not missed by Ellen DeGeneres.
She said: “Oh my god, if someone’s just tuning in you look naked in there.”
Within a few seconds the target had been hit, with the greedy show host making the vital winning throw, and Liam Neeson was duly drenchy.

In an open and personal response to recent attacks on her fluctuating figure, Lady Gaga has posted pictures of herself wearing just a bra and underpants on her social networking site with a caption that reads: “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15.”
The 26-year-old pop superstar wrote: “My boyfriend prefers me curvier. When I eat I am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I’m happy. Happier than I’ve ever been.
“I am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny. This is who I am. And I am proud at any size.”
Lady Gaga’s public response comes after a series of unflattering photographs made the singer look much curvier than usual while performing on her tour this week, with claims that she had “piled on the pounds”.

Seemingly appalled, the recovering bulimic, who has admitted to gaining nearly 25 lbs, took to social media to launch a sub-section of her site, called Body Revolution.
As well as the series of half-naked images, Lady Gaga wrote: “But today I join the BODY REVOLUTION. To Inspire Bravery. And BREED some m$therf**king COMPASSION.”
The page continues: “My mother and I created the BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION for one reason: <<to inspire bravery>>.
“This profile is an extension of that dream. Be brave and celebrate with us your <<perceived flaws>>, as society tells us. May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous.”
She also wrote: “Hey Guys its Gaga… Now that the body revolution has begun, be brave and post a photo of you that celebrates your triumph over insecurities.”
And she clearly seemed confident in the candid shots which she shared with her Little Monster fans.
Lady Gaga can be seen stretching while revealing her body art in all its glory while wearing just a citrus colored bra and matching thong.
In one picture she even shows off her derriere, while she also gives a side profile showing her looking slimmer than she did on stage last week.
She also took to the site to thank her fans for helping her over the scrutiny of her weight.
She added: “My weight loss/gain since I was a child has tormented me. No amount of help has ever healed my pain about it. But YOU have.”
