Back in 2003 when Lucy Liu insinuated that she liked kissing girls, it was actually news. Today, so many celebrities have admitted to same-sex attraction that it's hard to keep up.

Acting Start:

Her first role was the lead in Alice in Wonderland, her senior year of college.

She had a brief role as a waitress on Beverly Hills, 90210 and appeared on NYPD Blue and ER. She locked lips with Calista Flockhart on Ally McBeal in 1999. She's been on many TV shows including Cashmere Mafia, Ugly Betty and Dirty Sexy Money.

Lesbian Quote #1:

According to Jane Magazine in college Lucy had pictures of nude women on her walls. Lucy says, "So my friends would come into my room and look at my wall in shock. I'm like, 'What? Just because there are naked women on the wall doesn't mean I'm a lesbian."

On kissing Calista Flockhart:

"For me it felt really familiar. It was just very sensual, but not sexual. There's a difference between the two. When something is sexual, you feel it deep down. And if it's sensual, you let it sort of pour over you," Lucy was quoted in Jane Magazine

The Big Lesbian Quote:

Lucy says in Jane Magazine, "I think people sometimes get the wrong impression when they're like, 'Oh, well, so-and-so was straight and then she was gay, and now she's straight again,' you know? But it's like, how many times do I have to kiss a woman before I'm gay? Everybody wants to label people. Sometimes you just fall in love with somebody, and you're really not thinking about what gender or whatever they happen to be. It think that if I happen to fall in love with a woman, everyone's going to make a big deal out of it. But if I happen to fall in love with a man, nobody cares."
