When blockbuster “Aquaman” launched, many viewers were convinced by the masculine beauty as a god of Jason Momoa.
The tall actor with the bearded hair in sloppy clothes are what many people often use to describe Jason Moama at the first meeting, whether he was in film or in his real life.
But it is also because of the odd and unique features of the sea that this 39-year-old actor has become an impressive factor among many elegant and luxurious male stars of Hollywood.
With the leading role of the god of the sea Atlantis in the most notable blockbuster Aquaman at the end of the 2018, Jason Momoa once again proved his charisma from his special appearance.
The island man who was famous for Game of Thrones
Jason Momoa was born in 1979 on the tropical island of Hawaii. As a photographer’s son, he had a special passion for the art from his early age.
Jason Momoa was very keen on both the Polynesian sea and the Polynesian culture. After graduating from high school, he chose to study Oceanography because he wanted his life to always be associated with the ocean.
His love for the island was likely to help Jason Momoa meet the entertainment industry. At the age of 19, when he was a young man working part-time at a surfboard shop, he caught the eye of a designer and became a model.
Later, Jason Momoa hit the cinema lane when he passed over 1,000 bright candidates to win the leading role of the popular TV series Baywatch Hawaii (1999 – 2001) revolving around a beach rescue team. In the following years, Jason continued participating in many films relating to the coast background such as North Shore (2004 – 2005) and Stargate: Atlantis (2005 – 2009).
However, the big breakthrough in the career of this handsome actor was the role of Khal Drogo in HBO’s blockbuster Game of Thones. With a strong appearance and fierce fighting ability, Khal Drogo also took audience’s hearts thanks to his infinite love for his wife, “Dragon Mother” Daenerys Targaryen (by Emilia Clarke).
Although the character of Jason Momoa only “survived” in the first season, Khal Drogo has been still one of the heroes that impress the fans of the HBO’s TV series. This was considered as a huge breakthrough in his acting career.
Not only encapsulating his career as a hero, Momoa also knew how to take advantage of his appearance to impress audiences in many other action and horror movies such as The Bad Batch, Sugar Mountain, Once upon a Time in Venice, and TV series Frontier. Specifically, Stargate Atlantis, the series about the sea, starred by him received many compliments and awards.
In charge of reviving DCEU by Aquaman
Warner Bros studio started keeping an eye on the tall actor, who looked like a god to give him the role of Aquaman superhero of the DC Cinema Universe (DCEU) with many responsibilities.
DCEU had had a bittersweet 2017, and in 2018, they launched the only project Aquaman with all their heart and soul. This was considered as a vital project with the responsibiltyt to revive the DCEU and a bad year of Warners Bros. The person receiving that important role was Jason Momoa.
Used to appeare in the Justice League group in the blockbuster Justice League (2017), Aquaman was one of the members who won the hearts of the audience thanks to cool fighting moments and a humorous personality.
Because it was Momoa’s impressive appearing to the superhero world of DC that helped him continue being entrusted with the responsibility of taking on the role of Aquaman in the movie about “The King of Seven Seas” directed by James Wan.
The superhero was half human, half Atlantis, so he hadsuper powers with the ability to control water and communicate with sea creatures.
It was undeniable that the focus of the blockbuster “Aquaman: Emperor Atlantis” was Jason Momoa.
Momoa was directly offered by Zack Snyder toplay the sea superhero Aquaman. When director Zack Snyder chose Jason for the role Arthur Curry, he had learned about the background of Momoa.
The actor revealed that Zack Snyder wanted him to create the most interesting and bizarre superhero ever. This might sound like a difficult task at first, but fortunately, Jason Momoa himself had owned many strange things which were similar to the sea king Aquaman from the personality to the appearance.
The 39-year-old actor had a great deal of sympathy with the character in Aquaman. Especially with his superior height, masculine beauty, robust physique and deep eyes, he was considered as the most ideal and perfect role model for Aquaman. Sharing a great love for the sea, Jason Momoa easily showed the character’s personalities and captured the hearts of the fans.
Besides, his hard work in water sports also helped him to have an attractive body with standard muscles. In fact, Jason Momoa did not disappoint Snyder and DC fans because he really brought a tough and sexy but charming character of the DC superhero group.
Loving his wife who is 12-year-old older than him for nearly 20 years
When the movie Aquaman became the focus of many people interested on the big screen, “love story” between the talented couple in the film was also discussed.
Jason Momoa and Amber Heard became the hottest couple with two roles as superhero Aquaman and princess Mera. If Jason Momoa made female audiences crazy about his perfect muscular body, male ones could hardly resist the hot charm of Amber Heard.
After starring in the movie, Jason Momoa and Amber Heard are extremely close.
The two often went together and had emotional moments whether on studios or movie premieres. Many newspapers rumored that Jason Moama and Amber Heard did not leave each other half a step, which made the wife of the actor, who was actress Lisa Bonen, jealous crazily. However, this absolutely did not dent the affection and trust of Jason Momoa and his wife for each other.
In fact, many times playing on the screen with many hot actresses, Jason Momoa just gave his heart for Lisa Bonet, a wife who was 12 years older than him. Therefore, it must be some special reason that she could keep her family happiness for nearly 20 years so that any beauty could not “steal” Jason Momoa from Lisa.
Jason Momoa had also stated that Lisa would forever be the queen in his heart with the harmony of all aspects of her personality. Also, the marriage with Lisa was the expectation of his whole life.
Jason Momoa’s family and the love with his wife has lasted 20 years
In an interview about his loving wife, Aquaman” revealed at the age of 8 when he sat with his mother to watch a movie by then-20-year-old Lisa Bonet. Suddenly, he pointed at the sexy actress on the screen and said to his mother, “Mom, I will have to marry her later.”
The 39-year-old actor confirmed that he was hit by the love of Lisa Bonet at first sight. The actor emphasized, “In my heart she is always a queen. Meeting Lisa is also a big dream of my whole life”. During his childhood, he admired and followed Bonet’s every step. He always loved his wife even though she was not the most perfect.
“To tell the truth, I’m a guy who has persisted like leeches for decades, but now we have two children together,” Momoa proudly boasted. After that, the two met and developed feelings through the introduction of friends in 2005, but it was not until 12 years later that they officially organized the wedding.
