Lucy Liu recounts her experience of working with Bill Murray in ‘Charlie’s Angels’
‘Charlie’s Angels’ actor Lucy Liu on Tuesday recounted her experience of working with actor Bill Murray in ‘Charlie’s Angels’ in the Los Angeles Times’ “Asian Enough” podcast.
Liu talked about her clash with Murray, where he “hurled insults” at her while shooting. Murray who was not present for a weekend rehearsal insulted Liu when he found out that a particular scene had been reworked while he was gone.
“I couldn’t believe that (the comments) could be towards me, because what do I have to do with anything majorly important at that time? I literally do the look around my shoulder thing, like, ‘Who is he talking to behind me?’ ” Liu said.
“Some of the language was inexcusable and unacceptable, and I was not going to just sit there and take it. So, yes, I stood up for myself, and I don’t regret it,” she further added.
In an op-ed, she wrote in April for the Washington Post, Liu detailed how she didn’t want to be cast “in ‘typically Asian’ roles because they reinforce stereotypes. She also revealed how she had the “least amount of privilege” on the set.
