Female Obsession: Lucy Liu


Gorgeous. Intelligent. Sexy. Creative. Lucy Liu is many things, but most of all, just plain awesome. It's been a while since she's appeared on Hollywood's radar but the ever elusive Lucy Liu remains as productive, and beautiful as ever. Welcome to the latest installment of, Female Obsession...

Liu as "Ling"
Lucy Liu began acting on television in the early 1990's. She had a few small roles on random shows here and there (like her awesome appearance on Home Improvement!) until Lucy finally got her big break in 1998, becoming a regular on the Fox smash, Ally McBeal.  My mom was all about this show back in the day. The only thing I remember about Ally McBeal was Calista Flockheart danced with that CGI baby, the cast would do karaoke at a piano bar and Lucy Liu's character was crazy. Crazy, and HOT. Lucy Liu's eyes were unnaturally beautiful. It was like she could see beyond the camera lens, across my TV, actually look through me and after wards, slap me across the face. She was terrifying and invigorating at the same time.


Liu crossed over to the big screen and starred in a string of Hollywood films in the early-mid 2000's. Most notably, the Charlie's Angels franchise and Quentin Tarantino's epic, Kill Bill.

If you haven't seen Liu's performance as the deranged mob boss O-Ren-Ishi in Kill Bill, you are missing out. Watch THIS clip, then hunt down the Blu-ray/DVD/bootleg VHS copy and learn something.

Painters Gonna Paint
Of course, Ms. Liu has taken on more than a few questionable roles in, um, how do I say...less than stellar motion pictures. Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever, Code Name: The Cleaner, Rise: Blood Hunter? Yeah, I'm not so sure about those ones. She's stared in the uber succesful Kung Fu Panda animated films but I haven't gotten around to seeing those yet. Regardless of her choice of acting roles, Liu has a lot of other things on her plate. She is also an accomplished painter/artist, practices martial arts, speaks something like 6 languages (Madarin & English fluently, some Italian, French, Spanish and Japanese too!) and is an all around awesome human being, advocating for marriage equality/gay rights.

So yes, Ms. Lucy Liu, you are amazing. I'd love to hang out at one of your art exhibits, talk about film, religion, social issues and maybe even impress you with the handful of Spanish & French words I sort of know. Here's a clip of Lucy being awesome with my personal hero, Craig Ferguson.



Oh yeah...here's Lucy Liu being gorgeous:

  1. I'm a huge fan of Lucy Liu and could easily see how somebody could develop a crush on her but I'd feel amiss to not post a link to this video under a blog about Lucy Liu:

    This guy is utterly terrifying, "Lucy Liu, you must remember me. Lucy Liu, you must give me inspiration, Lucy Liu I am haunted by your images."

    Scares the hell out of me every time I see it. I hope you're not this Tim Box guy, that would be awkward!

  2. Needs more Lucy Liu. I didn't know she was a painter too, but there is definitely more to her than just a pretty face.

  5. I think she is a very very attractive woman, but it's weird. She does not do much for me. I do think she is gorgeous, and pretty and stuff, But I guess just not my style. So keep it up Lucy! I like her work and all, but not my type.

  19. Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever was a modern classic. Mind you, I also think Scooby Doo is real so my opinion cannot be trusted.
