Liam Neeson: How '60 Minutes' Didn't Get the Whole Story on Late Wife

That moving "60 Minutes" interview wasn't everything Liam Neeson shared with Anderson Cooper about the 2009 death of his wife, Natasha Richardson.

While the "Non-Stop" star spoke from the heart in a segment that touched many last week, when he appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" Thursday night, it was clear he wasn't finished talking. In fact, he was disappointed that some of his comments to Anderson Cooper hadn't made it to air and he didn't mince words while discussing it with host Andy Cohen.

"It was time to talk about it and there were some other things I said that got edited out that I wish had been kept in," he began. "We got hundreds, maybe a couple of thousand, of sympathy cards, emails, and stuff, from all over the world, especially America — not one from that ski resort. I kid you not. Not one," he lamented, holding up a finger and looking squarely at Andy for emphasis. (Natasha was staying at Quebec's Mont Tremblant resort when she had a fatal skiing accident.)

Julianna Margulies, who happened to be appearing on the late-night talk show with Liam, reached for his hand in a show of comfort and support.

But though Neeson was displeased with the editing job done by the "60 Minutes" powers-that-be, the "Non-Stop" star was quick to praise Cooper.

"Anderson Cooper was very easy to talk to. He's a great journalist. He knows how to probe," Liam mused before adding, "Anyway, let's change the subject."

Everyone on camera agreed that was a good idea — and since this was live TV, there was no editing team to deem otherwise.
