Actress Liv Tyler is struggling to read parts of her father’s new autobiography – because there are aspects of his life she’d rather not know about.
The Lord of the Rings star bought the book, Does The Noise in My Head Bother You?: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Memoir, via Amazon.com after friends kept asking her if she’d checked it out – and she admits it isn’t an easy read for her.

She says, “I have this weird reaction because, obviously, I’m his daughter and, as much as I wanna to know him more as a man and as a human, there’s, like, this part of me that’s kinda like, ‘Ignorance is bliss’. There are certain things I just don’t wanna know about.”

And she can only imagine fans are struggling with certain ‘out-there’ aspects of the book: “The first couple of chapters are… I know his mind so well that I understand, but there’s a whole opening part about, like, a fox coming and taking him from his playpen (and) taking (him) to a hole and no one can find him… and I’m like, ‘Woah! That’s my dad.'”
