LOS ANGELES – “I am so sorry that my comment was taken out of context, as I would never insult another group or ethnicity,” “Charlie’s Angels” actress Lucy Liu told the Philippine Daily Inquirer after she was asked by this reporter to comment about her controversial statement in a guest appearance on “Late Show with David Letterman” last October 11.

When Letterman asked Liu, who is shooting her new TV series “Elementary,” if she enjoys running indoors or outdoors, she answered, “I run in a machine. It is easier for me. Also, if I get really dark, I’ll start to look a little Filipino. It wouldn’t match.”
