“Aquaman” star Jason Momoa covers the December 2018 issue of Men’s Journal Magazine photographed by Jeff Lipsky.
On his fierce obsessions as part of his DNA: “If I see something I love,” he says, “I want to learn everything about it. There are just so many things I want to do in this life, from writing to music to designing to activism. I actually need more people to help me. I’m slowly building a little army.”
On his beloved wife Lisa Bonet and their relationship: “You know, I met my wife over a pint of Guinness. I knew it was love when she ordered it first,” he says. “I get in trouble just like any other dumb fucking male,” Momoa says. “We love each other, have an amazing family together, but a relationship is work.” He asks me how long I’ve been with my partner. Twelve years, I tell him. About the same for him, he says, and reflects on how much a person can change over such a long period. “That poor woman met me when I was 26,” Momoa says. “I was a maniac. I wanted to do all of these things, but I didn’t have an outlet, so I would just destroy. She’s stuck with me through too many me’s.”
