Ladies and gentlemen, I am SO very excited to present to you the June cover of @MensHealthMag, featuring its first-ever East Asian cover model.— Simu Liu (刘思慕) (@SimuLiu) May 19, 2021
You know it’s a big deal because I gave up boba for weeks for this shoot... WEEKS! pic.twitter.com/8oCEsBwcUf
Simu Liu is the star of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film with an Asian lead.
“I am that person that struggled with my identity my whole life. I am that person that’s always felt like he wasn’t enough. And those [experiences] are more core to Shang-Chi’s character than his ability to punch people.”@SimuLiu for @MensHealthMag: https://t.co/aZ47HxTah6 pic.twitter.com/HqnvvvfVWY— Men's Health Mag (@MensHealthMag) May 19, 2021
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings debuts in theaters on September 3.
