Jason Momoa says he ‘doesn’t like wearing clothes’ anymore as he strips on live TV
| Last updated
Jason Momoa has claimed that he no longer enjoys wearing clothes after bearing his backside on Jimmy Kimmel Live! You can see the moment that Aquaman whipped his kecks off in the video below.
For many of us, that would be something wrought with self-consciousness and low confidence, but when you are a bodybuilding, Hollywood heartthrob, it suddenly isn’t so much of an issue.
Well, it wasn’t quite his bare backside, he was actually wearing a piece of traditional Hawaiian dress called a malo.
The beige garment is a traditional loincloth worn by some on the Pacific island of Hawaii, where he's from.
Therefore, it stands to reason that he might wish to wear it around the house a bit.
He told Kimmel that the malo is now his ‘favourite’ thing to wear, adding: “That’s what I wear every day.”
Apparently, he started wearing it in preparation for his role on Apple TV’s Chief of War, but just kept it up from there.
He explained: "And I was just getting ready for the role, because I like to get into character, and so I was tanning my white ass.”
Jimmy asked: “That’s comfortable?”
Momoa hit back: “Oh my God, yes.
"I actually don't like wearing clothes anymore.
“I mean, I'm in it every day.
“I wear it all the time."
We’ll have to take his word for it – over in the UK you might attract a few sideways glances if you wore that down to Aldi.
To be fair, Jason Momoa probably gets a few looks wherever he goes.
When asked whether he was wearing one at the time, Momoa proceeded to get his kit off and showed off his malo, before then exposing his whole bum to the audience.
It’s groundbreaking telly, it really it is.
Then, Momoa decided to have a little shake in front of Jimmy’s face, which he obviously must have loved.
It’s all good harmless fun, after all.
When you’re Jason Momoa, these seem to be the sorts of thing that you can just get away with.
