He revealed he waxed his entire body for the Warner Bros. film, calling it "one of the most painful experiences" of his life in his recent interview with The Independent. "Waxing has been an education to say the least," Liu told the outlet. "I have such a newfound admiration for the incredibly brave women who go through this on a monthly basis."
