Liam Neeson really had a tough time kissing Peter Sarsgaard; (hmm, so maybe give the job to somebody who wants to do it? Because it’s giving ungrateful).

In the 2004 film Kinsey, he played controversial sexologist, Alfred Kinsey, and in one scene he was required to lock lips with a naked Sarsgaard. He later explained, “It was hard – I don’t want to say it wasn’t hard to do. It was hard, I’m heterosexual.”

So if you’re heterosexual, why was it hard? *arf arf*

He continued, “I wanted to do it right. I didn’t want the audience to see me, Liam Neeson, flinching from kissing another guy. In the end I tackled the situation as calmly as I could. It sounds a bit boring, but it was just another day at the office.”

Tackled the situation calmly? He’s describing a kiss like it’s a playground altercation where another parents roughed up his kid. Which is surprising, given that Neeson was 53 at the time, and well into his acting career.

“Of course it was delicate but we didn’t start the day and say, ‘Oh my God, we’re doing this today’.” He said. We presume he’s describing the situation as delicate, and not the kiss… which Saarsgard describes as “being eaten”.

“It was half way between a kiss and being eaten”, he described.

He told People magazine: “The only reason you have to be afraid, I guess, is that you might be turned on. That would be the most embarrassing thing that could happen.

“After we had done it once and I realized that it wasn’t at all like the kiss I was used to … as you can tell from the movie, he nearly takes my head off, so there was no danger of that.”
