I grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, with no money. I was taught not to take anything for granted. If you are too busy being a diva or a freak, then you are not enjoying it.
Lucy Liu by Kenneth Willardt, 2003
Fierce ladies I adore 11/25 (in no particular order): Lucy Liu
"I wish people wouldn’t just see me as the Asian girl who beats everyone up, or the Asian girl with no emotion. People see Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock in a romantic comedy, but not me. You add race to it, and it became, ‘Well, she’s too Asian’, or, ‘She’s too American’. I kind of got pushed out of both categories. It’s a very strange place to be. You’re not Asian enough and then you’re not American enough, so it gets really frustrating."
"I try to believe like I believed when I was five… when my heart told me everything I needed to know."
Lucy Liu at the 72nd Academy Awards, 2000
