Martin Freeman calls Lucy Liu a dog
Martin Freeman has taken a swipe at the American version of Sherlock – Elementary – by calling Lucy Liu a dog.
While promoting new movie The Hobbit, the British star was asked what he thought of the American take on the famous detective.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Freeman – who plays Bilbo in the Lord of the Rings prequel – joked, “I’ve seen bits of it. I met Lucy Liu at the Emmy’s who was charming, but very ugly. She’s a dog, come on, she’s a very unattractive woman. But she was really really charming and I wish them all the best.” He also adds that he is ‘of course’ the ‘prettier’ Watson, saying, “I’m the original glamour of Watson. And then they get Lucy Liu of all people to try to bring some f****ng glamour in.”
The 41-year-old was also asked when he will resume production on Sherlock series 3.
“March, I believe. And that breaks off for me to come back to Middle Earth and then we resume after Middle Earth. We do [have more reshoots] and we got them anyway when it was two films, and now it’s three films so there’s additional filming on top of that.”
‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ releases worldwide today, and stars Freeman along with his Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch, Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Richard Amitrage, and Andy Serkis.
