Lucy Liu looked gorgeous as she visited the The Talk, where she discussed season 5 of “Elementary,” which premieres Oct. 2.

Liu, who has barely aged during the past two decades, looks fantastic at age 47, thanks to diet and exercise.

Liu’s fitness and weight loss secrets are a portion-controlled diet, running and Pilates workouts, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

The 5-foot-3 Lucy, who stars on the hit TV series, Elementary, said running combined with Pilates has made her legs look longer and leaner.

“I don’t have long legs, but through the combination of Pilates and running, they look longer and feel better than they ever have,” Liu told Fitness.

“Pilates has engaged my core and made me feel more confident in that area.”

Pilates promotes lean muscles and weight loss by working your mid-section and lengthening your body, said fitness expert Cassey Ho, author of Hot Body Year Round.

Lucy Liu, who put her martial-arts skills to use in the action flicks Charlie’s Angels and Kill Bill, works out at home when her hectic shooting schedule doesn’t leave time for hitting the gym.

When asked about shattering stereotypes as an Asian woman playing Sherlock Holmes’ sidekick Watson, Liu said it evolved naturally.

“You have to break down barriers, not intentionally, but you have to do things that you think are gonna be interesting and creative,” said Lucy (see video).

Liu continued: “So now it shouldn’t be so odd that Watson is being played by a woman and somebody who’s Asian. You have to introduce people to it. Just like an African-American president. Now it shouldn’t be such a big deal.”

Season 5 of “Elementary,” which co-stars Jonny Lee Miller, premieres Oct. 2.
