In an interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show back in May, Simu Liu said that he has been seeing the stock photos popping up constantly ever since he was announced as the lead for Shang-Chi.

“I’ve been like on the front of stores, I’ve hung outside gyms, and been on the cover of textbooks,” he added.

Liu also took some time to share his thoughts on his stock photos that found their way back online.

According to a tweet, he revealed that he was paid a sum of USD$120 (approximately RM498) for at least one picture that is currently circulating on social media. Credit card debts made him sign away all his rights.

In another tweet, he commented on a photo of him on the cover of an accounting textbook. Liu was an accountant at Deloitte before he took part in acting.
