Liam Neeson prank called his co-star's ex-boyfriend

Liam Neeson is the “best fake movie dad” says “Taken 3” co-star Maggie Grace. According to Rob Shuter of naughtygossip, the actress revealed just how paternal the Irish actor is while appearing on “Conan.”

Grace recounted that she was a “hot mess” after breaking up with a boyfriend and that Neeson decided “to set this kid straight” when he saw how distraught she was.

The 31-year-old actress then played a call that Neeson made to her ex.

“This is Brian Mills,” the Oscar nominee said, speaking as his notoriously tough “Taken” character. “We’ve never met, and if you play your cards right, we never will.”

“Now listen (bleeped out expletive),” he continued, “you’re lower than the pond scum so I’m just going to say this once.

“You’ve made two mistakes: Your first mistake was dating out of your league. Your second mistake, well, let’s just say any more mistakes and I’ll break your other arm – slowly.

“I don’t need to say it, but I have a particular set of skills,” Neeson said, quoting his character’s most famous line.

“And I don’t want to waste them on you,” the actor ended. “Now you get your s--t together.”

The pair have appeared as father and daughter in the “Taken” trilogy.
