Lucy Liu’s family refuses to admit they’re related to the star – because they’re embarrassed by her fame.
Liu says, "There’s always sacrifices. My family don’t generally say that they’re related to me – my sister doesn’t say she’s my sister – because they don’t want to be judged or lauded based on who I am."
She adds, "I think my parents are happy about my career now, but originally I was like, ‘Why don’t you support whatever I want to do? If I wanted to sell beef on the street why wouldn’t you want to support me?’ But it’s not about that. Parents never stop being parents, and yet you want them to be your friends at a certain age and that’s just not going to happen."
Hellloo? Ms. Liu is one of the first most recognized Asian faces in Hollywood.
