Lucy Liu was tomboy

Actress Lucy Liu says she grew up as a tomboy, and so she is easily charmed by men who praise her good looks.

She says she was never considered beautiful while she was growing up.

The "Charlie's Angels" star was raised in Queens, New York and she was often mocked at by her classmates for her skinny figure and cropped haircut, reports dailystar.co.uk.

"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," Liu told Michigan Avenue magazine.

Now, because Liu, who has previously dated actor Will McCormack and screenwriter Zach Helms, spent so much time believing she wasn't pretty during her youth, she unknowingly falls for men who sing her praises.

"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.'" she added.
