Cool Dad Job: Protagonist
Latest Cool Dad Achievement: Starring in See on AppleTV.
Momoa rides waves. He rides motorcycles. He hangs with Slayer and Anthrax. He’s played gods and married Lisa Bonet, who deserves a shrine. He’s an environmental activist and a model and a guy who can take a joke and do something with it. Want evidence? After being body-shamed for having actual fat and eating an actual Guinness cake on his birthday, Momoa, 40, didn’t start lifting or going on some insane Keto diet. Instead, he used his beefy chest to protest against the construction of a massive observatory and telescope in his birthplace of Hawaii, writing “Please leave our mauna alone” on his chest. Because he’s not content to just protect the natural world (and the oceans), he is, famously, raising his “feral” children, Lola Iolani, 12, and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha, 10, to enjoy it. Damn right.
