Last week, the Canadian actor took to Twitter to reveal that he's seeking professional help for his "problems". He didn't exactly specify what he's been going through but in a recent Instagram post, Simu Revealed that his newfound fame has become detrimental to his mental health.

To celebrate the anniversary of Shang-Chi's release, Liu shared a heartfelt post on the photo-sharing platform, admitting that he wasn't ready for what fame had in store for him. He also said that he wants to prioritize his mental well-being to become "something more than a superhero". Check out his emotionally charged post below:

It's good to know that despite his newfound fame, Simu is still keeping everything in check and we wish him nothing but the best moving forward. Meanwhile, the actor's next MCU project has not been revealed yet but considering Shang-Chi's growing popularity in the franchise, you can definitely expect the Master of Kung-Fu to be a major player in the Multiverse Saga.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is streaming on Disney+.
