Marvel's newest superhero Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu has sure come a long way. The actor called back to his past career stint as a stock image model in celebrating his new film's success at the box office. Simu took to his Twitter to share an image of himself posing with two other models around a computer, the actor wrote, "Me laughing at the people who thought we'd flop."
As cited by BuzzFeed, the star of Kim's Convenience once put up an instagram story sharing his experience of doing a stock image model shoot, “I did ONE stock photo shoot for 100 bucks cash in 2014… and I have ended up on HUNDREDS of ads and storefronts and pamphlets and textbook covers. Moral of the story; think twice before doing a stock photo shoot because they own the photos FOREVER." Apparently the shoot haunted him for years.
