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.

It was one of our favourite movies growing up, and we definitely sang and danced to the songs in the privacy of our own home.

And now, the star of the movie, Whoopi Goldberg, has said that she is definitely up for making a third instalment.

The actress was chatting to Entertainment Weekly to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first movie, and of course they asked her if she would be willing to film another one.

"Yeah, it would be a great blast," Whoopi said. "I would have a good time, because it's a piece I understand and I know.

"But would they call me? Probably not. They'll find somebody much younger to do it," she joked, but then ended with, "they should call me."

Yes Whoopi, they should call you, indeed.

Can you imagine anybody else playing the glorious Deloris?! We don't think so.



23 years after it was first released, a Sister Act remake is on the way.

Sister Act 1 was one of the biggest box office successes of the Nineties, grossing over €200 million in ticket sales worldwide.

A sequel, Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit, was made just one year later, a Broadway musical followed in 2006, and now it seems we're getting to meet Sister Mary Clarence and co once again.

Writers Kristen Smith and Karen McCullah, the brains behind Legally Blonde, 10 Things I Hate About You and She's The Man have already signed on to create the new film, and we're told work has already begun.

It's unclear whether the new film will be a sequel to Sister Act 1 and 2, or whether it will reimagine the story all over again, but if the writers have any sense at all they'll be begging the films' star Whoopi Goldberg to get on board.

In the original film, which was released in 1992, lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier ends up joining a convent of nuns as part of a witness protection programme. While she's there, she takes it upon herself to revamp the church choir, with mixed results.

Disney are keeping tight-lipped about the plot details for the revamp, so for now we're just going to keep listening to this on repeat:
