Liam Neeson insisting that a horse recognised him on set is the greatest celeb news story of 2018

Maybe he did actually remember him.

LIAM NEESON IS everyone’s favourite scathing dad.

He wouldn’t shout at you when you piss him off, he’d just be really really disappointed. 

Liam now claims a horse recognised him on the set of his new Coen Brothers film, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. 

No, I’m not kidding.

According to Page Six‘s Cindy Adams, the actor reportedly claimed the horse remembered him . Speaking at the New York Film Festival, he said: 

The odd thing is the horse who pulls my wagon knew me. You won’t believe it. I’m saying this horse knew me. He actually remembered me from another Western we made a while back.

Speculation would conclude that the first horse he is referring to is the one from A Million Ways to Die in the West back in 2014, which as a Western, would have many horses. 


He continued, with no one seemingly around to stop him:

I love animals. When we worked together before I took special care of him. I fed him treats. Gave him apples.

So hold on, it gets better.

When asked to elaborate on how he could identify that the horse recognised him, he said 

He whinnied when he saw me, and pawed the ground.

Right, definitely a horse remembering you and not a horse just being a horse.

Love you Liam, never change. 


Update: Russell Crowe has come in to defend Liam! Please observe this eager tweet and just try to tell me horses can’t recognise people.
