Liam Neeson reveals that a horse in his new film knew him from a previous movie
Apparently, the horse had whinnied and pawed the ground when he caught a glimpse of his co-star from a previous film.
One time Academy Award nominee Liam Neeson revealed that a horse recognized him on the set of his forthcoming movie.
Yes, you heard it right Neeson recently revealed that the horse that he was working with on the sets of his new Coen Brothers film 'The Ballad of Buster Scruggs' was very well aware that they had worked together once before. In an interview with Page Six at the New York Film Festival, the actor said, “I play a traveling impresario. We filmed in New Mexico. The odd thing is the horse who pulls my wagon knew me." Apparently, the horse had “whinnied” and “pawed the ground” when he caught a glimpse of his co-star from a previous film.

“You won’t believe it. I’m saying this horse knew me. He actually remembered me from another Western we made a while back," added Neeson. Well, if you are left wondering, how in the world would a horse be able to recognize Neeson after all these years, the star narrows it all down to his habit of feeding the animal apples.
"I love animals,” he continued. “When we worked together before I took special care of him. I fed him treats. Gave him apples.” Though Neeson hasn't identified the movie he worked along with the horse and sad enough to everyone's dismay IMDb does not keep a track of the equine actors, it is assumed that he might be talking about 2014’s 'A Million Ways to Die in the West', where he played the role of the infamous outlaw Clinch Leatherwood.
Well, Neeson isn't the first actor to claim that he was recognized by a horse, Following Neeson's reveal, Russel Crowe took to Twitter to release a statement about how he was recognized by a horse too. "This is absolutely true."
This is absolutely true . There’s a horse George who I gave the speech in the forest in Gladiator on. Years later he was on the set of Robin Hood and we would have a chat everyday.— Russell Crowe (@russellcrowe) October 9, 2018
Same with the white horse Rusty in Robin Hood we chatted again on Les Mis. Lifelong friends. https://t.co/LqUxyfAymK
On the other hand, Neeson-starrer 'The Ballad of Buster Scruggs' is all set to arrive on Netflix on November 16. Watch the trailer to the movie here:
