It's been over 20 years since the Charlie's Angels movie, and there's always been a rumour about an infamous fight between stars Lucy Liu and Bill Murray on set.

This week, Liu spoke about that very story on the Asian Enough podcast, where she said the incident was sparked by "inexcusable and unacceptable" language from Murray.

Lucy Liu interview on Bill Murray Charlie's Angels fight

In the interview, the 52-year-old recalled shooting a scene where Murray had missed a rehearsal and was unaware of a few changes. Liu said Murray then had an outburst that unfairly targeted her, though she was barely involved in the scene.

Lucy Liu described Bill Murray fight on Charlie's Angels set in new interview.

Liu described it like this: "As we're doing the scene, Bill starts to sort of hurl insults. And I won't get into the specifics, but it kept going on and on.

"I was, like, 'Wow, he seems like he's looking straight at me.' I couldn't believe that it could be towards me, because what do I have to do with anything majorly important at that time?

"I literally do the like 'look around my shoulder' thing, like, who is he talking to behind me? I say, 'I'm so sorry. Are you talking to me?' And clearly he was, because then it started to become a one-on-one communication," she said.

"You know, if you confront me, I will attack," Liu added. "Some of the language was inexcusable and unacceptable, and I was not going to just sit there and take it.

"So yes, I stood up for myself, and I don't regret it," she said. "I would not stand down, and nor should I have, and nor did I."

Liu did add, however, that there is no bad blood between the stars today, though they never did act in another project together.

Nonetheless, the story isn't a great look for Murray, who played "John Bosley" in the 2000 Charlie's Angels film with co-stars Liu, Drew Barrymore, and Cameron Diaz.
