Jason Momoa

'Aquaman' calls for action with rousing UN speech

Speaking at the UN review of the SAMOA Pathway, a roundtable discussion on Small Island Developing States in New York, the ocean activist and well known actor delivered a rousing six minute speech to global leaders.

Representing island nations, he told the meeting small island countries have led the way in sounding a global alarm on the state of the earth and its seas.

Momoa said innovation and creativity have perceivably elevated humans to the most powerful beings in the world.

The excruciating moment Jason Momoa is asked to 'do a haka move' at Oscars

Ms Graham was stationed on the red carpet, interviewing celebrities as they arrived when the cringe-worthy interaction occurred.

The model demanded Haiwaiian-born Jason Momoa perform a "haka move" for her. She then vaguely tries to demonstrate what she means, in case the indigenous man was unclear on her request.

Her demonstration was a strange little hop from foot to foot, with a half hunch.

It was awkward.

Jason Momoa says he's from New Zealand

"I just need citizenship and we're good," he told Newshub.

His blockbuster juggernaut Aquaman is about to flood cinemas here - and all he can talk about is New Zealand.

He's already expressed his love for Kiwi culture with a ferocious haka for the Las Angeles premiere of Aquaman.

"Obviously I am very close to it," he says.

"I've made my own haka for my family. My children were out there with me, we based the character around Polynesian culture. I thought it would be honouring a lot of people by doing it."

Aquaman reviews: Does the blockbuster sink or swim?

After two brief appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, the king of the undersea nation finally has his own origin story.

While some reviewers said the blockbuster was a bit of a bore, others thought it was quite entertaining.

"It's refreshing to see a hero that doesn't take himself so seriously," said James Luxford in The Radio Times.

"From his action packed, slo-mo heavy introduction aboard a submarine, it's clear that entertainment is the main priority instead of universe building.

Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke have adorable Game of Thrones reunion

Based on their enormous grins, the appearance of a bottle and her curious caption, it appears the two went out drinking. Now that's what we call an epic deleted scene.

"When life is so good that your sun and stars is in your city...you loose your eyes and gain 5 grins (and gins) where until now they'd only been one... (*grins- there's always more gins)," the British actress wrote.

Jason Momoa: One of the toughest actors in the business is a big softie

He'll talk about the beauty of naked branches in the winter while a daunting, blood-covered rubber apron -- a prop, he later explained -- hangs above his head. He'll show you his handcrafted knife collection and later confess his aversion to hunting for pure sport.

"I'm a walking contradiction," he joked to CNN in a recent interview.

The truth is, Momoa knows movie and TV audiences don't really know a lot about the real him. But they will soon.
