Lucy Liu: Checklists put me off

Lucy Liu

Lucy Liu is attracted to people who "don't have a checklist" when it comes to their personal lives.

The actress has a few staple characteristics she looks for in the people she surrounds herself with. Lucy - who is currently in a relationship with Will McCormack - believes there shouldn't be a regimented process about choosing the person you want to share your life with.

"I feel I'm attracted to people who work hard and have a sense of intention. Not to the point that they have no lives, but that they have a passion, as opposed to working just to make money. I'm attracted to people who don't have a checklist - or, if they do, it's internal not external," she told Psychologies magazine.

"I had this friend once who was dating a guy and she said, 'He ticks all these boxes, he's a doctor, he's a this, he's a that.' And I was like, 'Oh my god, I can't know you anymore.' It was alien."

Lucy says motherhood is very appealing to her. The 43-year-old star is in awe of parents who selflessly give up their lives for their family.

"I love the idea of having a child," she gushed.

"It's probably the most magical thing you can do for yourself. It's a matter of making space for that in your life and your heart. I think there's something wonderful about seeing people grow through their children. Because you have to stop thinking about yourself."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Scorpio:

You have to make some personal sacrifices to achieve career success. If you're going to lead a team to victory, you will have to be hard on the less industrious members of the group. As a result, you won't be terribly popular. Many will complain about your methods, but nobody can argue with the results of your work. You know how to get the best performance from the people around you. That's a rare quality that should be championed. You should be gentler with people in your private life.More
