Liam Nesson recently took off his clothes to support a noble charitable cause. The Irishman took part in TV host Ellen DeGeneres’s chat show in October 2012. The objective of the program was to raise money in order to fund research with the aim of finding a cure for the deadly terminal disease of breast cancer. The actor was given an option to either don a boxer short or briefs. In the end Nesson opted for the bolder option and stripped down to a pink brief. He also graciously offered himself as a target by sitting on a dunk tank where members of the by and large female audience tried to hit him with balls. One cancer survivor even poured a bucket of cold water over Liam’s head! Nesson even went to the extent of offering to take off all his clothes if the money on offer was hiked but this suggestion was not accepted by the TV host. The event was hugely successful and managed to raise about $20,000. All these activities held in the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” were part of fundraising events held by the TV channel in support of the “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”.
