Lucy Liu is an Emmy-nominated actor with quite a few major roles under her belt. From Kill Bill to Charlie’s Angels, everyone has a Lucy Liu character that they know and love.
Still, as well-known and loved as Lucy Liu is, her personal life is not in the public eye the way her career is. Many fans wonder if Lucy Liu is married or in a relationship. We’ve done the research to find out who has this Hollywood beauty’s heart.
She’s Currently Single And Devoting Herself To Being A Mom
While Lucy Liu has had her fair share of romantic partners, it’s clear that her son is the one who has her heart today.
Liu knew she wanted to be a mom and that she didn’t need a relationship to make it happen. In 2015, she used gestational surrogacy to have her baby, Rockwell Lloyd Liu. The Elementary star wouldn’t have had it any other way.
“It just seemed like the right option for me because I was working and I didn’t know when I was going to be able to stop,” she told People at the time. “I decided that was probably the best solution for me, and it turned out to be great.”
She went on to explain, “I didn’t realize how quickly babies progress… Very basic things that you just take for granted. They’re just this little lump of flesh, and then all of a sudden they’re turning around, they’re observing you and they’re smiling and they’re interacting. It’s a magical experience.”
She’s Loving Mom Life
It’s clear that having Rockwell has changed Liu’s world for the better. She talked about her love in an Instagram post in honor of Rockwell’s fifth birthday. ”He is a rainbow of light and his energy is pure magic. As a human being, a woman, a mother, a daughter – now more than ever we must come together to fight for the soul of this nation,” the post read. “Let’s all wish as hard as he is for a brighter and safer future for our children and Mother Earth.”
Motherhood also deepened her sense of meaning in life. “It’s almost become this cellular feeling of connecting to the universe in a way where you understand the idea of the cycle of life and the responsibility of having another being who is a party of you but outside of yourself,” she told The Sydney Morning Herald.
Lucy Liu Has Dated Some Big Names
Lucy Liu keeps her private life very private, so there’s very little information available about her romances. “I’ve always been very private, and I fly under the radar as much as possible,” she told The Sydney Morning Herald. “I don’t bring people I’m dating to any public event because it’s a big responsibility that I’m not sure anyone wants.”
That being said, we can confirm a few of her relationships. Take a look at the famous men she’s been linked to.
In 2000, Lucy Liu made headlines with actor and once-coveted bachelor, George Clooney. While the alleged Hollywood power couple never confirmed their relationship, they didn’t shy away from attending the red carpet together. It seems like there was still something of a spark even after they called it quits; in 2006, the pair shared a celebratory New Year’s Eve kiss.
In 2002, Lucy Liu reportedly started dating director, screenwriter, and producer, Zac Helm. Rumor has it that the couple got engaged two years later, but by June of that same year, the pair called it quits.
In 2008, rumors swirled about Liu’s relationship with former professional boxer, Wladimir Wladimirowitsch Klitschko. This couple, however, was never confirmed.
Liu was reportedly linked to actor and producer Will McCormack between 2004 and 2007. McCormack is perhaps best known for producing films like Celese & Jesse Forever (2012) and American Outlaws (2001). As usual, Liu was tight-lipped about their relationship, so we can’t confirm any additional details about their relationship.
In 2014, Liu was linked with hedge-fund billionaire, Noam Gottesman. This high-profile couple was serious about keeping their personal lives under wraps. Gottesman hired 24/7 security to monitor himself and his partner. They reportedly shared a love of art; Gottesman is a keen collector, and Liu has dabbled in painting since the 1990s. It’s not clear when or why the pair called it quits.
