Charlie's Angels premiered in 2000 and did not gross a record box office. But the cult story about the dangerous and beautiful agents was loved by the audience around the world.
By the way, to play secret agents, pretty faces and beautiful figures were not enough. The actresses had to go through a hard training and practice martial arts almost every day for 7-8 hours.
So, with the help of a coach and choreographer, the actresses gained the lightness and grace that is so mesmerizing in the movie.
It is interesting that for the role of Alex, which Lucy Liu eventually landed, there was no suitable actress until last moment. Thandie Newton turned down the role because of sexism and racism. Perhaps it was for the better, because the movie got a brilliant Lucy.
At that time, Lucy was 32 years old. Today, the actress is 54, and she continues to play attractive heroines in superhero movies, romantic comedies, and TV series. At the same time the age of her characters barely reaches 30.
According to Liu, her youthful look is not only due to Asian genes. To preserve the beauty bestowed by nature, Lucy always moisturizes her skin with oil, uses thermal spring water throughout the day, and never forgets about sunscreen. After all, her pretty freckles need to be kept under control. In addition, the actress gives her skin a break from makeup. In everyday life, the actress does with inexpensive mascara and blush, which is applied to the cheeks and lips.

As a person of Asian descent, Lucy Liu can't ignore unconventional oriental healing methods. She has practiced acupuncture since she was a child and believes it has had a positive effect on her health and beauty.
A balanced diet
Lucy grew up in a poor family and from an early age was not used to eat much. She also realized that her body rejects meat. That's why, as she got older, the actress switched to an almost vegetarian diet, adding to it cheese and eggs. A typical menu of the angel looks modest: porridge and soup with vegetables and mushrooms. What she does not limit herself in is drinking pure water.
A strict routine
Liu has a strict routine, which allows her to stay fit and enjoy life. She gets up at six in the morning, meditates, then goes for a jog with the dog, and then goes to the gym for a workout. Recently Lucy has become fond of cycling, which, according to the actress, not only keeps her fit, but also gives her lots of positive emotions.
