Lucy Liu to be honoured by Harvard University

Lucy Liu is to be honoured by Harvard University.

The Harvard Foundation are set to name the 'Charlie's Angel' star as 2016's Harvard University Artist of the Year at the Cultural Rhythms Festival today (20.02.16).

S. Allen Counter, director of the Harvard Foundation, said in a statement: "The students and faculty of the Harvard Foundation are delighted to present the distinguished and much-admired television and film star Lucy Liu with the 2016 Artist of the Year award.

"Our student and faculty committee commended her outstanding contributions to the performing arts and her highly-praised humanitarian work as UNICEF Ambassador and other charitable projects."

And Lucy has shared a photo of her trip to the prestigious university on Instagram, which is somewhat surprising after she previously admitted she's "terrible" at social media.

She said: "I'm terrible. I'm a visual person so I'm much more comfortable sending pictures. It's so hard to keep up with emails and lines and a 14-16 hour day of work. I'm not a daily Instagram or Twitter or Facebook person. I send things out when I feel like it. I don't know how people find the time."
