Ladies and gents at the “Ellen” show were in for a special kind of treat when Liam Neeson came to visit. The 60-year-old actor went above and beyond to help raise funds for the fight against breast cancer.

Strutting out in a pink robe, Neeson was about to get a bucket full of water dumped on his head to raise $10,000 for charity. But, the actor didn’t think that was quite enough. He said to Ellen, “If I take this off, does the $10,000 become $20,000? Just asking.” Of course, Ellen said yes. She would make it happen.

The “Taken” star then stripped down to the tiniest pair of pink briefs you could imagine and sat in the seat under the bucket. As Ellen pointed out, his shorts were so small, he looked naked. Then, Ellen and a super excited breast cancer survivor from the audience went to town throwing pink water balloons to drench the nearly nude Neeson.

Check out the full clip below and start your morning with a little bit of star nudity (for a good cause).
