'Charlie's Angels' Production Assistant Reveals What Actually Happened Between Lucy Liu & Bill Murray On Set

There are many rumors about what exactly happened with Bill Murray and Lucy Liu on the set of 2000′s Charlie’s Angels.

The rumor was that Bill, who played Bosley in the first movie, was replaced by Bernie Mac in the sequel due to a disagreement with Lucy, who was rumored to have “thrown punches” at Bill for what he said to her.

Now, a production assistant on the movie is speaking out about what really happened.

Shaun O’Banion took to social media about the wild report between Lucy and Bill, and shared what he witnessed on the set.

“Basically, Murray rewrote a bunch of scenes without telling anyone (including Drew [Barrymore] who was a producer). He put the new pages in everyone’s trailers & everyone came to set wondering where the hell the new pages had come from. Murray was the last to step on stage and by that time there was already mass confusion,” he tweeted in response to one user questioning the situation again.

Shaun added that McG, the director was “pissed that no one had consulted him. The AD’s were also pissed. Drew’s producing partner came in and Murray was like, ‘what’s going on?’ McG was like, ‘did you get new pages in your trailer?’ And Murray was like, ‘No. But I put new pages in everyone else’s trailer.’ Drew and her partner were pretty upset by this. Murray was like, ‘I’m making it better, ok? You’ve got, like, 16 writers on this thing…’ and Lucy spoke up, saying something like, ‘this is way out of line.’”

“Murray turned and said, ‘I don’t know what you’re complaining about. I have you more lines. I mean… look who you’re in with here. You’re TV… and this is the big league.’ At that point Lucy shouted, ‘F*** you, you f***ing c********r!’” he continued.

“And the AD’s promptly cleared the stage as Lucy ran off the stage crying. Cameron was trying to be the peacekeeper and protect Drew as the AD’s cleared the stage. Of course all of us in production had to stay inside to keep people out. I love Bill Murray (and had worked with him before), but what he said to her was totally uncalled for. Really belittling and s***ty.

“This was pretty early in the process too, and the crew already really liked Lucy (and Cameron [Diaz] and Drew). Anyway. No punches were thrown. At least not physically. He later apologized though not entirely sincerely imho.”

Shaun did make a point to say that since then, Bill has worked on himself as a person, and that Lucy was checked in on by her co-stars.

Just last summer, Lucy opened up about taking on the role of Alex in the franchise.
