Now that is some seriously awkward timing.

Liam Neeson opened up about how he was filming Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives just as the scandal regarding Soon-Yi Previn broke.

"There was one incident—people think I've made this up, but no. There's a scene where I'm going down on Judy Davis, right. Judy and I are in bed—obviously covered up—and as I'm going down, Judy's having this monologue in her head. And the crew are all ready, and we're waiting for Woody," he told GQ magazine.

"[He was a] no-show. It's starting to get a bit uncomfortable—it's a bed scene. Anyway, he came out after about twenty minutes and said, 'Okay. Camera starts on Judy. Liam, I just want to see just the top of your head…'So there was no apology, nothing. What happened: his lawyer had gotten in touch with him to say Ms. [MIA] Farrow has found naked photographs of her adopted daughter [Soon-Yi]."

The actor also recalled how things were equally as uncomfortable when he filmed alongside Farrow in the flick later on.

"We did a couple of reshoots with Mia, and then Mia—a few months later, Mia was doing a film with Natasha [Richardson] in Ireland. And Mia, Natasha and myself became very good friends. She's lovely."

The three carried on such a close friendship, in fact, that Non-Stop actor admitted to Farrow that he was completely smitten with Richardson.

"We had a couple of Guinnesses one night, and I told [Mia] I was going to marry this woman," he shared.
