Lucy Liu says Bill Murray verbally 'attacked' her on 'Charlie's Angels' set, more news

Wonderwall Logo By Wonderwall.com Editors of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 8: It's been two decades since "Charlie's Angels" star Lucy Liu reportedly defended herself when Bill Murray verbally "attacked" her -- and she still has no regrets. In the July 27 edition of the "Asian Enough" podcast from the Los Angeles Times, Lucy alleged that Bill started to "hurl insults" at her during a rehearsal for the 2000 hit film. "Some of the language was inexcusable and unacceptable," she said (via USA Today), explaining that one of his scenes had been changed when he wasn't there. "I couldn't believe that 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?'" she said. According to Lucy, she confronted her co-star and they proceeded to fight more. "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 said. Recalling how her mother was often insulted with racist comments about their heritage when Lucy was growing up, she said as the person with the "least amount of privilege" on the set, she felt she had to defend herself. "No matter how low on the totem pole you may be or wherever you came from, there's no need to condescend or to put other people down," she said. "I would not stand down, and nor should I have." As of July 28, neither Bill nor his reps had responded with a comment.
