Liam Gallagher reveals Eric Cantona refused to be paid for his Once video

Liam Gallagher recalled the time when he asked Eric Cantona to play in his ‘Once’ video.

Speaking on The 2 Johnnies Podcast, Liam Gallagher revealed:

“We spoke to him and said, ‘Look, how much do you want to be in the video?’

“‘I do not want no money’. We go, ‘We’re gonna have to give you summat.’ He goes, ‘I’ll be in the video for nothing’. I go: ‘Alright, we’ll send you a plane ticket’.”

But he replied: “‘I will make my own way there. I will get my own hotel’.”

Liam went on to explain that he even offered to get the former footballer his favourite wine, but he refused and brought his own. If that wasn’t legendary enough, Liam revealed he hasn’t spoken to him since.

“Anyway, he turns up, did the video, f***ed off man,”

“Never seen him again for nothing. What a geezer… Just because he loved the song. That’s what real legends are about.”

“I was going, ‘What the f***? How much money do you want?’ But he didn’t want nothing. He didn’t want picking up at the airport, he hired his own car, got his own hotel, brought his own food, done the f***ing video and f***ed off!”

“Never seen him again. Didn’t want nothing. That’s what you call a f***ing legend.”
