Lucy Liu got pie-eyed with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night.

The always elegant actress, 44, now starring on the CBS crime drama Elementary, was a good sport as she joined the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon host for a messy game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pie” – and ended up a gooey mess with her face covered with white cream.

Fallon, 38, also took a sweet wallop to the face as the segment placed the stars behind a cutout board – framing them as chefs – and exposed their faces and arms. They put their hands on a device whose handles, when clicked, could deliver an unexpected pie blast.

“She is the greatest,” Fallon said with a giggle as the two – she in a chic, one-shoulder dress, and he in suit and tie – stepped outside of the game board to earn audience cheers, their faces covered in goo.
