The Scooby-Doo gang will always find and reveal the enemy (even if Velma does all the work), margaritas will be the best way to acquire brain freeze (sorry, daquiri lovers), and Jason Momoa will always have flowing hair that just hints at a degree of wildness and untamable-ness.
And so, I suppose two out of three isn’t too bad?
Yes, Jason Momoa abruptly changed his appearance after cutting off his trademark locks, shocking fans and even himself a little.
The flow of that hair has always been a feature of the 43-year-old actor’s on-screen persona, whether he is portraying Khal Drogo, Aquaman, or Duncan Idaho in Dune.
You can therefore be certain that he would never simply shave off his hair without a good reason.
It’s not as though he’s playing around with bangs or anything, is it? A movie star who enjoys surfing, riding motorcycles, and playing his guitar gets an abrupt and harsh buzz cut.
For this, are you prepared?
People, it’s gone. Jason’s hair is completely off his head at this point, so hopefully it wasn’t the Samson-like secret to his success. Just like any other barber’s sweepings, it is destined to fill a hotel pillow or perhaps a fake Build-A-Bear.
He finds the new appearance as strange as you do.
Momoa shared a video of his hair-chopping session’s conclusion on Instagram, and in the clip, he can’t help but run his hands over his short hair while joking. “Aww man, I’ve never even felt the wind right there.”
Momoa clarified in the video that everything was done for a good reason.
Momoa, who was designated as a UNEP Advocate for Life Below Water in June, stated in the article that it was all about reducing plastic consumption.
“Here’s to new beginnings let’s spread the aloha,” he wrote in the caption.
“[Be] better at protecting our land and oceans,” he continued. “[We] need to cut single use plastics out of our lives and out of our seas. [Plastic] bottles, plastic bags ,packaging, utensils all of it.”
“I’m tired of using plastic bottles, we gotta stop,” Momoa added in the video.
“Plastic forks, all that [expletive] goes into our land, goes into our ocean. I’m here in Hawaii right now, and just seeing things in our ocean, it’s just so sad. Please, anything you can do to eliminate single-use plastics in your lives. Help me, plastic bottles are ridiculous.”
Momoa has long been passionate about reducing and getting rid of single-use plastics.
Momoa had already founded his own bottled water business, Mananalu, which uses aluminum bottles rather than plastic, before taking the UNEP position.
When he personally distributed bottles of his water on a trip from Los Angeles to Hawaii in August, Momoa created a stir. Not bad, but perhaps not as likely to make headlines as chopping off all that distinctive hair.
