Mike Myers was urinated on at Anfield

23 June 2014, 07:00

Los Angeles - Mike Myers was urinated on during a soccer match.

The Austin Powers star - whose father is originally from Liverpool in North West England - is a big Liverpool FC fan and claims when he went to a match at their stadium with his cousins during a visit to the UK, he got an unexpected surprise.

Meyers explained: "It was fantastic to see Liverpool play but in the olden days they didn't have seats so behind the goal there's this place called 'The Kop' in Liverpool and it's super-steep and the crowd all moves together."

He added: "All of a sudden there was this giant guy behind me and he had this magazine and I thought, 'Who brings a magazine to a soccer game?' And he rolls it up and he pees through it onto the back of my leg and I can't move."

Meyers went on to say, "I said, 'Dude', because I'm Canadian the best I could do was say, 'Hey buddy, what are you, mental or something?' And he just looked down at me with bits of pie flying out of his mouth and said, 'Have you got a problem with that, mate?' And I was like, 'Nope, perfectly fine.'"

The 51-year-old comedian also revealed he proposed to his wife Kelly Tisdale during a 2010 World Cup match between the USA and England, but struggled to hide the ring because his soccer kit was too tight.

Speaking on Late Night with Seth Meyers, he said: "I wore everything. The England shirt, the England shorts, but because I bought them online they ended up being really uncomfortable short shorts (...) I had this big box in my pocket that I was trying to hide."

He concluded: "I was waiting for the right moment and then England scored and I got on my knee and I said, 'Will you marry me?' And she said, 'Yes', and I thought, 'This is fantastic!"
