Lucy Liu Recalls \u2018Charlie\u2019s Angels\u2019 Clash With Bill Murray

Charlie’s Angels star Lucy Liu says she has no regrets over her on-set clash with Bill Murray, who appeared alongside her in the action-comedy.

While chatting with Johana Bhuiyan, Tracy Brown, Suhauna Hussain and Jen Yamato on the Los Angeles Times’ Asian Enough podcast, the actor recalled the time Murray started hurling “inexcusable” insults at her in front of the cast and crew after he found out about some late-in-the-day script changes.

Liu–who was introduced as super-spy Alex Munday in the 2000 original, before reprising the role in its sequel three years later–went on to detail how Murray, who played the titular detectives’ right-hand man John Bosley, had been absent during rehearsals one weekend due to a family gathering.

“I wish I had more to do with [the rewrite], but I didn’t,” Liu explained. “Because I was the last one cast, and I probably had the least amount of privilege, in terms of creatively participating at that time.

During that time, those present reworked one particular scene to make it “more fluid” and once they started filming Murray, reportedly, highlighted his disdain for the tweaks and “hurling insults”.

“I was, like, ‘Wow, he seems like he’s looking straight at me.’ I couldn’t believe that [his comments] could be towards me, because what do I have to do with anything majorly important at that time?” she continued.

“I say, ‘I’m so sorry. Are you talking to me?’ and clearly he was because then it started to become a one-on-one communication.”

Liu went on to say that she’s proud she stood up for herself in the moment and insisted that “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.

“I remember years later, maybe even decades later, some crew members that I didn’t even know at the time came up to me on other sets and told me that they were there at the time,” she shared. “And they were really grateful that I did that.”

The Kill Bill star concluded by adding that she has “nothing against” Murray and has even shared pleasant exchanges with him at events since, including a Saturday Night Live reunion.

“But I’m not going to sit there and be attacked.”
