On Air With Ryan Seacrest

Weekdays 3pm-7pm

Simu Liu attends the 19th annual Unforgettable Gala at The Beverly Hilton on December 11, 2021 in Beverly Hills, California.

Simu Liu has a message for his mom about his dramatic new look. In a shirtless selfie posted to Instagram earlier this week, the 32-year-old actor shared with his 2.4 million followers that blondes have more fun, saying goodbye to his dark hair. The Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star captioned the post with one important request: “Sorry ma pls don’t kill me.”

While we still don’t know what his mom thinks about the change, he did get some feedback from his onscreen mom in Shang-Chi, Fala Chen, who wrote in the comments section, “I’m disappointed son.” Ronny Chieng, who played Jon Jon in Shang-Chi quipped, “LOOKS LIKE S—.” One person came for Chieng writing, “That was your hair style in Shang Chi…”

Liu’s costars weren’t the only celebrities to weigh in. “Uch why are you so handsome,” Mindy Kaling added before joking, “not likable.” And when Olivia Munn wrote, “The 90s really are back,” Liu replied, “@OliviaMunn they neva lefffffffft.”

Fans got in on the fun, giving Simu’s Shangi Chi clever nicknames of the new look like, “Drip-Chi” and “Shang-Chad.”

According to E! News, ahead of the big reveal, the Marvel star hinted he was switching up his style by posting a picture of himself dyeing his hair to Instagram Stories, again writing, “Sorry Mom.”
