George Clooney and Lucy Liu


Yum! (image via killerbees)

Failed blog notwithstanding: when not lying doggo on his property on Lake Como, or relaxing at his 8-bedroom Tudor house "Casa de Clooney," or writing critically acclaimed -- and profitable -- films for the Chattering Classes, George Clooney likes him his Lucy Liu.

They actually strike me as an evenly matched couple. She: brainy (Stuyvesant High School '86; University of Michigan, BA, Asian Languages), intense; He: politically-engaged, media-critical, leading man handsome darling of the cultural elite. Any future progeny from this "coupling" could conceivably -- no pun intended -- win assloads of Nobel Prizes and MacArthur grants. According to the 3AMGirls:

"THE world's most eligible bachelor George Clooney and Kill Bill star Lucy Liu set tongues wagging with a New Year's Eve snog.

"Our stateside spy tells us the pair enjoyed a five-course meal and plenty of champagne at Bed club in Miami before getting down to action.

"'She was all over him,' our mole reports.

"'And he didn't mind a bit. In fact, his hands started to wander.'"

And, tangential, Liu's brand of man-magic extends into the retail world as, according to Lloyd Grove:

"That was 'Charlie's Angels' temptress Lucy Liu trying on shoes in a crowded Bergdorf Goodman the other afternoon, with a gaggle of men at her beck and call. A Lowdown spy reports that Liu was in a side room of the designer shoe area amid racks and racks of on-sale footwear. She reclined on a bench in the corner as three gents scurried about, fetching box after box."

It's a slow day, people.
