Lucy Liu Fails To Sell Painting For $28,000

|

We haven’t seen much of Lucy Liu since she bumped butts with Drew and Cam in Charlie’s Angels, and now we finally know why. The actress – not content with making millions prancing around on film – has been painting secretly under the name Yu Ling. Her most recent work – a painting of a couple kissing done on a linen canvas – is apparently for sale via the Eli Klein Fine Art Gallery for $28,000. Let that sink in for a second.

Is she really that strapped for cash that she needs to hawk her art for such a ridiculous amount of cash? Clearly her work can’t be that great, as her people had to finally reveal her name in order to get the piece to sell. Let’s hope James Franco fairs better in his second career – the handsome actor turned aspiring writer just sold a book of short stories. Still, we just don’t get it – why are these actors so eager to quit their cushy day jobs?  [Photo: WireImage]
