Veteran actress has had her say on the whole Liam Neeson race controversy, defending the Taken actor over his polarising remarks.

Goldberg appeared on US talk show The View to speak about the debate, insisting he's not a 'bigot' in the aftermath of his comments about wanting to "kill a black b**tard".

Neeson has been plagued by social media backlash after an interview in The Independent was published where he spoke about seeking revenge after his friend was raped.

He was promoting his new film Cold Pursuit at the time, but received widespread condemnation for his account of the event which happened over 40 years ago during The Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Goldberg has known the actor for decades, and is adamant that Neeson is “not a bigot” and that people “shouldn’t be surprised he was angry” after learning about the rape of his close friend.

She said: “People walk around sometimes with rage, that’s what happens. Is he a bigot? No. I’ve known him a pretty long time, I think I would have recognised, I’ve been around a lot of real bigots. I can say this man is not one."

She continued her defence of the long-standing Irish actor; “You can’t be surprised that somebody whose loved one is attacked is angry and wants to go out and attack.”

The Sister Act star valued how Neeson “realised it was too dark” and went and “got himself help” by power-walking and speaking to a Catholic priest.

Appearing on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Neeson responded to the backlash himself by insisting he was “not racist” and “sought help” after his worrying instincts.

“It hurt me. I did seek help. I went to my priest and had two very good friends I spoke to,” Neeson explained. 

Former England footballer John Barnes also praised Neeson for “coming out and telling the truth” urging people to realise Neeson said he was “ashamed and horrified” at himself.

Like it or not, a vital conversation on racism, basic instincts and admitting the truth has begun as a result of his words.

The silly season is well underway.

Getting into the festive mood, Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal decided to prank Ryan Reynolds.

The two lads told Ryan that their Christmas party had a dress code – i.e. stick on the Crimbo jumpers.

Of course, the actor turned up to the celebration with a stunning present jumper.

To his delight, he arrived with Jake and Hugh laughing at him.

The pictures are absolute gold and Ryan captioned the photos: "These f*cking assholes said it was a sweater party."

Hugh and Jake look chuffed with themselves.

Ryan and Hugh have been messing with each other for years.

We just get to enjoy the fall out of their trolling.

The former couple announced the heartbreaking development on their respective social media accounts yesterday, revealing that their lovable pet died from cancer.

"I’ll see you again baby girl. But you’ll always be with me. Always. Thank you Norman Jean Roy for this memory."

The picture shows the actor with Lulu running along the beach, what was a poignant and nostalgic moment for the star.


A post shared by Channing Tatum (@channingtatum) on

Those in the entertainment industry have been quick to offer their condolences to the actors, who met initially while filming Step Up, and announced their separation in April.

Paris Hilton commented on Tatum's post; "Sorry for your loss."

Hillary Swank wrote; "Ugghhhh losing a four legged family member is the hardest thing I have ever been through. Bless you both."

RIP Lulu, grieving the loss of a family pet really is heart-breaking.

Have you ever wondered what you would say if you saw your favourite actor in the street?

Scream? Shout? Faint?

These actors relate to Vanity Fair what their fans (and non fans) have said to them when passing them in the street. 



Some of our favourite stars of all time go make-up free for a video shoot with People magazine.

The ladies look so beautiful without their regular beauty routine and they talk about how it makes them feel to go without make-up on such a large scale.

Watch as Cobie Smulders, Allison Williams, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Naomie Harris all brave public opinion and take their make-up off.

Cobie says she barely ever wears make-up while new mum, Jenna, says that her regular beauty routine has gone out the window since the birth of her daughter.

We’re not sure we’d be able to do it, would you?
