Lucy Liu - Lucy Liu Was A Tomboy Growing Up

Actress Lucy Liu is easily charmed by men who praise her good looks, because she was never considered beautiful growing up.

The Charlie's Angeles star was raised in Queens, New York and she was often picked on by her classmates for her skinny figure and cropped haircut.

She tells lifestyle publication Michigan Avenue magazine, "I grew up as a tomboy, and if you've seen photographs of me as a child, you see my mother cut all of my hair off. I had no hair... I was not considered feminine at all, and boys did not look at me. I was a toothpick."

And because Liu, who has previously dated actor Will MCCormack and screenwriter Zach Helms, spent so much time believing she was unpretty during her youth, she now unknowingly falls for guys who sing her praises - even if they are no good for her.

She adds, "I find that if somebody finds me beautiful, it melts my heart because it's not something I heard most of the time growing up ever... I can easily be enticed into some terrible relationship because I'm like, 'Oh, my God, you think I'm beautiful?' You know what I mean? And my friends are like, 'Why did you date that a**hole for so long?' 'I'm like, 'Oh, God.'"
