His handsome face, however, got him noticed well before that, during his modeling days.
When it comes to how one becomes more like the sexy star, Momoa — who has rocked everything from a clean-cut look to a goatee over the years — has a few ideas.
“The biggest thing for me is I’m searching, and I’m honest with myself,” the See actor told the outlet in December 2019. “I get really happy and stoked about stuff, I just go for it, and I’m not afraid to say that. Maybe that’s an attractive thing – the guys I love and follow are like that, they’re doers, everyone from a musical friend to someone who’s an outdoorsman.”
The Hawaii native added: “It’s important to be funny too and in touch with your feminine and masculine side. I just feel like it’s OK to be a man, it’s OK to be a sensitive man, it’s OK to be a strong man. That way, slowly you come into it all.”
“I had secretly sort of done something really rather uncool on an airplane,” Mirren said on the talk show in October 2019. “Jason was on the same [plane]. I didn’t know him at all at that point. He was with his beautiful wife [Lisa Bonet] and my heart just went … I was with my husband, but my heart just went, ‘Oh my god, that is just the most beautiful man I have ever seen in my life.’”
She added: “I was sort of floored by it. So, I secretly got out my camera ― it’s terrible ― and secretly took a photo of him. Oh my god, he was so gorgeous. When they said, ‘Would you like to present with Jason?’ I thought, ‘My dream has come true.’”
