"I'm ashamed to say that - and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some "black b*****d" would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know?"

The 66-year-old actor, who last appeared on the late night show in January, was scheduled again for Friday to promote his latest film Cold Pursuit, but instead actress Glenn Close will take his place. I don't know a woman who hasn't been harassed and I have never heard of an instance where a man has actually gone out to defend her honor.

"She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way", Neeson said.

Responding to the backlash his comments had drawn, the 66-year-old Irish star told the US television network ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday that "I'm not a racist".

Calls for a boycott of the latest instalment in the Men In Black franchise, in which Neeson plays the head of a United Kingdom branch of a secret service, were accompanied by suggestions that he be removed from the film, which is due to be released in June. "It was this primal hatred, I guess, that really shocked me, when I eventually came down to earth and saw what I was doing, looking for a fight".

"It was terrible, frightful when I think back, that I did that", Neeson said on "GMA".

"If I said in a week of my life." began Blackwood.

However, the red carpet for the screening was canceled just hours before arrivals were to begin in the wake of the Neeson's racially charged comments he recently made during an interview with the Independent.

'I thought ok and after that there were some nights I went out deliberately into black areas in the city, looking to be set upon so that I could unleash physical violence.

In this photo, taken on September 13, 2016, actor Liam Neeson poses for photographers upon his arrival at the premiere of the film "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" in London. "The lady journalist was asking, 'How do you tap into that?,' and I remembered an incident almost 40 years ago when a friend of mine was brutally raped".

"It shocked me and it hurt me". I had two very very good friends that I talked to.

"I'm not racist. This was almost 40 years ago", Neeson continued. I had acquaintances who were involved in the trouble.

Liam Neeson continued to face fallout and criticism on Wednesday after he admitted in an interview earlier this week that decades ago he sought out racist revenge.
