Liam Neeson and Ethan Hawke Impersonate Bravo's 'Housewives' on 'Watch What Happens' (Video)

The thespians unleash their sillier sides, donning wigs to mock the reality franchise's New Jersey edition, on Andy Cohen's late-night talk show.

Andy Cohen, emcee of Bravo's late-night show Watch What Happens, pulled off a coup of sorts on Wednesday night when he successfully persuaded Liam Neeson and Ethan Hawke to re-enact a scene from The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

In a state of apparent disbelief, the host declared during the episode: "This is a very good show!"

Watch What Happens, with its kitschy set and cult viewership, has become a destination for Bravo-lebrities and non-reality stars alike to make guest appearances. Hence the bookings of Neeson and Hawke, there to promote their respective films, Taken 2 and Sinister.

When Cohen requested the actors put on wigs to portray a pivotal scene between Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice from the contentious Real Housewives reunion, they willingly obliged -- and took the assignment to another level.

"I have NO Botox, I have NO fillers, I have NEVER had a Facelift!" bellowed Hawke, channeling Manzo. To which Neeson, as Giudice, responded: "You should get some."

This week, Neeson especially has been on a roll, exposing his sillier side -- and his semi-nude body -- in an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show. (In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Neeson appeared on the daytime talk show Monday in a pink bathrobe, disrobing down to his skivvies and entering a dunk tank; the studio audience howled as he was doused with water, with proceeds of $10K going to Ellen for the Cure.)

On Watch What Happens, Neeson confessed he had once dated Barbra Streisand, who's also a good friend of his.
