Liam Gallagher threatened to stab Sacha Baron Cohen in the eyes

Liam Gallagher once threatened to "stab" Sacha Baron Cohen in both eyes following a disagreement at a party.

The 44-year-old actor locked horns with the Oasis rocker at the GQ Awards after-party in London four years ago after he failed to share his joke about the singer, which he had planned to tell on stage, during his acceptance speech and things ended with outrageous threats being thrown around.

Speaking on the US chat show 'Conan', Sacha explained: "So Liam Gallagher comes over and says, 'Why the f**k didn't you take the piss out of me tonight?'

"And I said, 'I just didn't get round to it', and he said, 'Do you know what? I'm going to stab you in the eye.' I've never heard such a specific threat ... Eventually he didn't stab me."

However, Liam, 43, has since stated he didn't just threaten to gouge out one eye, as he was keen to take out both.

A representative for the singer told NME magazine: "Liam wants to clarify that it wasn't just the one eye, it was both."

Despite the bitter rivalry between the pair, Sacha is convinced they have now buried the hatchet and hopes he's won the rocker over by the fact his character Nobby in his new movie 'Grimsby' looks very similar to Liam.

Sacha joked recently: "I thought to avoid confrontation by having my hair done like him in my next movie."
