Liam Neeson Recalls Getting Turned Down for This Role in The Princess Bride

Once upon a time, Liam Neeson was rejected on sight for a role in The Princess Bride. The actor dished on the details during the Oct. 9 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The beloved 1987 movie, which was directed by Rob Reiner, features a slew of quirky fairytale characters. One such character, Fezzik, was portrayed by the late Andre the Giant, who stood at over seven feet tall. Before Andre was cast, however, Liam told Jimmy that he was brought in by casting directors for the part.

“I was quite nervous because I knew this was a big film and stuff. I had met the casting directors in L.A. So I go into the office in London, and Rob Reiner looked at me and said ‘He’s not a giant. What height are you?’ I said ‘Six foot four.’ He said, ‘That’s tall, he’s not a giant,'” Liam

Liam Neeson doesn’t have fond memories of being up for a role in The Princess Bride.

The actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he recalled the time he met with director Rob Reiner about potentially starring in the hit 1987 movie.

“I didn’t audition, but I was living in London, and I was asked to go meet Rob Reiner, the director, and I was quite nervous, because I knew this was a big film,” Neeson, 68, said.

“I had entered the office in London, and Rob Reiner looked at me and said, ‘He’s not a giant! What height are you?’ I said six foot-four. ‘That’s tall. He’s not a giant!’ ” Neeson recalled the director saying.

“So there was no ‘Hello, thank you.’ I thought, ‘OK, the next time I see Rob Reiner, I’m gonna tell him he was very rude,’ ” Neeson

The Elie Saab 2021 Bridal Collection Gives A Bride The Distinct Opportunity To Radiate

2020 has been a one-of-a-kind year for Lebanese designer Elie Saab. He started the year off with his spring-summer 2020 Haute Couture runway show in Paris, followed by his women’s autumn-winter 2020 ready-to-wear runway show a month later. Then the pandemic hit the world and hit his native Lebanon hard. And, on August 4th the city of Beirut had an explosion that left the country numb, while Saab has had to deal with damage to his atelier.

However, with all of this, the fifty-six-year-old fashion designer has managed to put one foot ahead of the other and do what he does best- create beautiful fashion designs. In September, he unveiled his autumn-winter 2020-21 Haute Couture collection digitally. And, through digital medium again, he just launched his new spring-summer

Father-in-law insults bride’s appearance at ‘surprise’ wedding, gets slammed online

A Reddit user was facing criticism last week after seeming to insult his daughter-in-law about how she looked at her “surprise” wedding. 

The angry father-in-law posted about the incident on Reddit’s “Am I the A–h—” forum. 

According to the user, who has since deleted his account, his son and daughter-in-law were married eight months ago but didn’t tell anyone in advance that their ceremony was happening.

Instead, the bride and groom invited everyone to attend a cocktail party, which was eventually where the couple said “I do.” 

The father of the groom explained that his wife unintentionally wore white to the event. In the United States, wedding guests typically tend to avoid wearing white as a means to not distract from the bride. 


According to the Redditor, his wife frequently wears white, so the newlyweds should have known to warn

Nurse Kim and groom Iain, 37, then spent their wedding night in A&E at John’s bedside, still in their wedding outfits.

She said: “The paramedics said he was very lucky to survive. Thank God he didn’t die.

“It would have turned the best day ever into the worst. I did joke I was glad he saved it for midnight and not when I was walking down the aisle.”

John, dogged by heart problems for years, had taken medication that day.

Lucky for the nervous bridesmaid, those on the website took her side,

Louisiana Bride Praises ‘Superman’ Husband’s Romantic Ceremony Before Tropical Cyclone

A bride in Louisiana has her new husband and her faith to thank for the wedding that she feared Hurricane Delta would ruin.

ABC 7 NY reported that Taylor Choate and Ian Gaspard set their wedding date on Oct. 10 months ago. However, as the couple’s big day approached, it was announced that Hurricane Delta would hit Louisiana on their wedding date.

The bride was devastated, to say the least, but she revealed that it was through prayer and wise words from her husband-to-be that she was able to cope with the fact that her dream wedding wouldn’t happen.

“My Superman here came in and saved the day,” Choate explained. 

“He told me that, at the end of the day, we just wanted to get married and it was important that we did it in the church. That was important to our parents and our faith. We were going to

Bride who was POISONED by her wild wedding flowers revealed she went blind on her big day and had to rush to hospital

PEONIES, roses and sweet peas are popular for bridal bouquets for a reason.

Not only are they beautiful and smell heavenly – but they’re also a VERY slim chance they’ll accidentally blind you as you’re walking down the aisle.

And while we can’t blame Christine Jo Miller for wanting to go against tradition, we imagine she’d do things differently after her wildflowers caused a poisonous reaction on her 2017 wedding day.

In a series of TikTok videos, Christine explained how she thought it would be romantic to use the snow-on-the-mountain flowers that grow in the allotment she’d bought with her husband in Nebraska.

In the days leading up to the wedding, the bride-to-be picked enough flowers to fill a whole truck – but little did she know how poisonous they can be and can cause

The bride excluded her, and she doesn’t know why

Dear Amy: My niece “Kate” has been married for several years. Her husband’s brother “Bradley” will be getting married this year.

Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune) 

All of Bradley’s siblings and their spouses have been asked to be in the bridal party — everyone except Kate.

Kate’s husband is in his brother’s party, but her future sister-in-law, “Julie,” has excluded Kate.

Kate included Julie in her wedding party several years ago.

Kate can think of nothing that would have offended Julie.

How should Kate handle this upcoming wedding?

Sad Aunt

Dear Sad Aunt: In the movie version, “Kate” would attend the wedding, get roaring drunk at the reception, and then deliver the roasty-toast of the century.

Movie pitch aside, if every single sibling and spouse has been included in the wedding party, this exclusion does seem off-kilter. However, the fact that Kate included “Julie” in her own wedding does
