“Parents came for the holidays, immediately started fixing up my house”: Simu Liu Proves You Can Be a $19M MCU Mega-Star But To Your Parents, You’re Still Their Clumsy Son

"Parents came for the holidays, immediately started fixing up my house": Simu Liu Proves You Can Be a $19M MCU Mega-Star But To Your Parents, You're Still Their Clumsy Son

The Shang-Chi star Simu Liu shot to stardom following his solo Marvel superhero film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The film which premiered in September 2021 immediately launched the otherwise marginally successful actor into the global spotlight following which his online following, influenced in majority by the Marvel fanbase, increased rapidly. However, the year that followed has not been kind to the controversial figure who prefers speaking out against the status quo, most times causing more offense to the public than helping them streamline the debate.

But as the holiday season approaches, the actor has shared an insight into his life by posting a picture of his parents — and the fandom has laid to rest the hostility toward Simu Liu in a moment of relatable affection when it comes to our endearing yet overbearing parents.

Simu Liu Tweets About His Life Beyond the Marvel Stardom

This holiday season, we can all relate to Simu Liu after the MCU actor tweeted a picture of his parents visiting him for Christmas and the scene that followed immediately after. In the actor’s mountainside home, filled with contemporary furnishings, nothing glamorous or gaudy, the parents have already put themselves to work by fixing up the place as the trio gets ready to celebrate Christmas Eve.

This has spurred the actor’s sentimental streak and caused him to share this family bonding moment with his fans. And the latter in turn have shared their own stories with the world.

It’s safe to say that Christmas has brought out the nurturing aspect in all our parents and the fandom has found something ubiquitously relatable to connect with, at least when it comes to showing our love and gratitude towards the unfiltered love of these two people in our lives and the indelible mark that they irrevocably leave behind.

Over the years, the world has slowly gotten closer to these untouchable figures of Hollywood A-listers and their lives shrouded in fame and glamor. Social media and the era of instant news have connected these stars with their fans at an intrinsic level, more intimately than the haunting paparazzi ever could. As a result, the fandom gets to know about stuff like the Christmas traditions of famous celebrities and how they usually like to spend their New Year’s Eve.

A few of the most endearing accounts come from the favorite duo Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively who put off all plans for Christmas to spend time with their daughters as they all huddle into one bed telling each other all about their days. Tom Cruise takes things more international by sending the infamous Cruise cake to his co-stars from California’s Doan’s Bakery to the celebrity homes via private jet.

And while most million-dollar net-worth Hollywood stars would rather book a trip to a tropical island with their friends or family, Simu Liu’s tweet reminds us that inherently we are all grounded and at the mercy of always being on the receiving end of our parent’s love.
