Gallagher: I Told Cohen I'd Stab Both His Eyes

Liam Gallagher has clarified that he threatened to stab Sacha Baron Cohen in both eyes - not just the one, as the comedian has claimed.

Cohen, who has said his look in new film Grimsby was influenced by the Mancunian singer, said Gallagher made the threat when the pair met at the 2012 GQ Awards.

According to Cohen, Gallagher said: "You know what, I'm going to stab you. I'm going to stab you in the eye."

In response to Cohen's claims, a spokeswoman for Gallagher said: "Liam wants to clarify that it wasn't just the one eye, it was both."

The heated exchange took place when Gallagher challenged Cohen about why he had not told a planned joke about the singer in his acceptance speech at the awards.

Appearing on US television show Conan, the actor said: "I thought to myself, I've never heard such a specific threat. That's a good aim.

"Anyway, eventually he didn't stab me so I thought I would avoid confrontation by having my hair done like him in the next movie."

The comedian is also known for creating characters including Borat and Ali G.
