In case you weren’t aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Irish actor Liam Neeson recently showed his support for the cause by showing up on Ellen wearing a pink bathrobe. It wasn’t long before Ellen Degeneres pulled an ecstatic member of the audience to meet with Liam; in response, the actor stripped off his robe to reveil pink Ellen briefs.
The actor raised $20,000 for charity by appearing in his “Ellens” on Ellen — and getting soaked in a carnival style target game by the enthusiastic fan from the crowd. He kept a good sense of humor about the task throughout the taping, crossing himself before taking off his robe.
“We get fined if you take those off,” joked Degeneres, motioning at his pink briefs. “I mean… some people might enjoy it.” The crowd cheered in agreement.
Sure enough, Liam looked pretty good for being 60 years old and drenched in water. The actor apparently maintains a fitness conscious lifestyle; plus he has had to do a little extra work for his various action movie roles including Taken 2, which was released on September 7th.
This isn’t the first time Degeneres has gotten a celebrity to strip down to his skivvies on her show either. Mario Lopez did the same to promote his brand, Rated M, back in January.
