(LOS ANGELES) — A nearly naked Liam Neeson dropped his robe and was soaked from head to toe to help Ellen DeGeneres raise money for breast cancer research.
The Taken 2 star appeared on DeGeneres’ talk show Ellen Monday wearing a bright pink robe, which brought screams from the mostly female audience. DeGeneres challenged a fan from the audience to soak Neeson, 60, from head to toe in a mock dunking booth. If the audience member could hit a target, Neeson would be soaked from head to toe and Shutterfly would donate $10,000 to breast cancer research.
“If I take this [his robe] off does the $10,000 become $20,000?” Neeson asked as the audience cheered.
He then revealed hot pink underwear under his robe and joked he was going to take those off too.
“Don’t take those off, then we get fined if you take those off. But I mean some people might enjoy it,” DeGeneres said.
Neeson then dropped his robe and stepped into the booth.
“Oh my god, if someone is just tuning in you look naked in there!” DeGeneres said.
At the end of the segment, the target was hit, a nearly naked Neeson was soaked from head to toe and $20,000 was donated to breast cancer research.
