For your Pretty of the Day, let’s get some fierce up in this joint.
Lucy Liu is featured in the lasted issue of The Edit magazine photographed by Mariano Vivanco and styled by Tracy Taylor.
On being frustrated by her parents’ initial lack of support: “After their struggle, they just really wanted to see me struggle in a different way, in a more obvious way, maybe something they could understand – she’s at college struggling, but then she will be a banker or a doctor. They understood that.”
On being proud of her achievements: “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.”
Get it, Miss Thing.
