Like a beautiful, smoldering hot Samson who used to be on Baywatch instead of dying like a chump under some stupid pillars, the source of Jason Momoa’s power is his hair. Which is why he’s under strict orders from Lisa Bonet to never cut it, because the greatest force in the entire universe is the threat of never getting some ever again.
Via the Daily Mail:
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph on Wednesday, Jason, 39, said: ‘My wife would leave me if I cut my hair so I just don’t cut my hair.’
He added: ‘I am not cutting my hair for a while, I will tell you that much.’
The Games Of Thrones star seemed confident about an Aquaman sequel being released - another why reason why he won’t be visiting a barber shop anytime soon.
‘I am going to be playing this guy for a while and I don’t want to wear a wig. I think we are good for the next two years,’ said Jason.
Momoa’s devotion to his flowing locks dovetailed nicely to a wine-fueled question Kate dropped into the Overlord Slack late last night. And I understand if this comes off as pure blasphemy, but I mentioned the wine, right? Cool. Show mercy.
Is Jason Momoa only hot because of the beard and hair? (and the body) aka: is his face, sans scruff, worth a spontaneous pregnancy?
As the over-eager new guy, I answered Kate’s call, and what I found will shock and surprise. Or just make you scooch around in your chair all day until it’s nothing but dust. It’s an emotional roller-coaster.
So let’s go back to 2011 when Momoa was starting to have a moment thanks to landing the role of Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. Plus it didn’t hurt that he looked like this:
Obviously, the long hair is in full effect, but the beard is nowhere near its current state. In fact, I present these next two photos as evidence that the beard is no more than a face-scarf that Momoa can shed or wear at will causing even the most boring of bloggers to question why God wants him to leave his family and live on a dolphin ranch with Lisa Bonet’s husband. That’s not in The Bible.
Tell me you didn’t look at this next one and ask yourself how the hell mid-’90s Antonio Banderas is giving Rachel Nichols the sex at the premiere of the Conan reboot nobody saw.
But in 2013, Momoa did the unthinkable and cut his hair pretty damn short. It wasn’t terrible…
Here’s another angle, and I mean, I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for taking my collectible figurines out of their packages.
But then it started to become this…
And, look, I’m probably the worst person at divining a woman’s mood, but I’m pretty sure Lisa Bonet is one craft beer away from lighting homeboy’s weird pompadour on fire.
That was from 2013, and Momoa clearly hasn’t cut his hair since because here’s how he plans to look until at least 2021.
Is this Momoa’s hottest incarnation? I’ll let you folks fight it out, and not because I’m too busy cashing out my 401K to build a dolphin barn. Haha, what?
