By 2010, Liu was linked with Israeli hedge fund billionaire Noam Gottesman. As Gottesman employed 24/7 security guards so there weren’t many snaps of the two together. They split in 2014.
Liu later became a single parent by choice. She has a biological son, Rockwell, who was born in 2015 via gestational surrogate. Liu stated that the method was the right option for her as she was busy working, and pregnancy would have been pretty high-risk as she was in her mid-40s.
During her senior year at the university, Liu auditioned for a supporting part in a school production of Alice in Wonderland and, to her surprise, she won the lead role. Her earliest television job was a small role on the teen drama Beverly Hills and 90210. Over the next several years, Liu made appearances on popular television shows then got her big break when she auditioned for the part of Nelle Porter on the hit comedy Ally McBeal. Though she didn’t get that part but the character Ling Woo was later created specifically for her. Liu won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress for her performance.
On the big screen, Liu grabbed audiences’ attention as Alex Munday in the comedy crime film Charlie’s Angels in 2000 and its 2003 sequel Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. Liu had a good deal more luck in the 2000s, starring in strings of television series and films, most notably were Shanghai Noon (2000), crime-drama series Elementary (2012–2019), The Man with the Iron Fists (2012) among others.
