Lucy Liu was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday — and her "Charlie's Angels" castmates were there to cheer her on.
Liu, 50, rose to fame in the late 1990s as cold-hearted attorney Ling Woo on the Fox legal drama "Ally McBeal," and went on to play brainy private eye Alex Munday in the 2000 "Charlie's Angels" movie and in 2003's "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle."
She's also appeared in "Chicago" and the "Kill Bill" series, and has voiced the good-natured Master Viper in DreamWorks' smash-hit "Kung Fu Panda" movies, among other memorable TV and film roles.
For the past seven years, the mom of one — Liu has an adorable 3-year-old son named Rockwell — has played Dr. Joan Watson, alongside Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock Holmes, on the CBS series "Elementary."
“We are excited to honor Lucy Liu and we placed her star next to the star of Anna May Wong, the first Chinese American actress to grace Hollywood’s film screens. When we place Walk of Fame stars, we love to juxtapose Hollywood’s golden age icons with the role models who represent the exciting shifts taking place in the film industry whenever we can,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Just days before receiving her star, Liu thanked fans on Instagram, calling the honor "a dream come true."
