There's no denying that Simu Liu has experienced a whirlwind of events following the release of Marvel Studios' 2021 blockbuster Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, a film that pretty much launched his career to the stratosphere, turning him from a lesser-known actor to one of Hollywood's biggest overnight sensations.

The actor may be enjoying the perks of being a bonafide A-list celebrity but at the end of the day, he's still only human and his packed schedule and various commitments aren't always a blessing, especially for a guy like him who isn't exactly used to all of the attention coming his way.

Taking to Twitter, the Canadian star shared that he's been quite busy as of late but he feels like he's directly affected by the so-called "Mercury retrograde". For the uninitiated, the astrological phenomenon affects a person's energy levels and while all zodiac signs can experience it one way or another, Libra, Aries, and Gemini will feel the effects of it the most. Interestingly, Simu, whose birthday falls on April 19th is an Aries.

The MCU star wrote: "That feeling when you're booked and busy but mercury is in retrograde or whatever that means". Check out his tweet below:
