Liam Neeson addressed the gender wage gap in the most Liam Neeson way possible

“I will find your disparity. And I will kill your disparity.”

He’s on The Late Late Show with, eh, Sean Spicer later this week. But a recent interview he’s done in the run-up is causing a bit of a stir.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Michelle Williams was paid 1% of what costar Mark Wahlberg received for re-shooting ‘All The Money’ without Kevin Spacey. Williams received just $1,000 while Wahlberg made $1.5 million from re-shooting the film.

Here’s what Liamo had to say about the gender pay gap in Hollywood, and beyond, in an interview with Associated Press.

There’s a lot of discussion about it, a lot of healthy and necessary discussion about it … Because the disparity sometimes is f*cking disgraceful.”

Don’t mince your words there, Liam.

He said that the industry is starting to move past it but that men “must be part of the solution”.

He went on to say he would not be willing to take a pay cut – rather that there should be parity in payment for men and women.

Hope Hollywood execs are listening, because the last I heard, he has a VERY particular set of skills.
