This famous actor recently gave an interview to Esquire magazine, a moment that has caught the attention of many in social media because of the adorable pictures taken from it.
And the reason why Momoa’s interview is going viral is that this Hollywood icon, “a mountain of muscles and actor who resembles a Greek god,” revealed a different side of his life, which many people didn’t know.
Holding a kitten and eating peaches, Momoa unveiled he’s actually a bad boy with a heart of gold. He has been portrayed as the King of the Wild Things, mainly when we consider his incredible love for animals.
Momoa is a Hawaiian-American Actor
Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Momoa has only recently become a verified superstar. In fact, before his breakthrough role as Khal Drogo on HBO classic, Game of Thrones, he worked in relative obscurity for many years.
He was brought up in Iowa and studied marine and wildlife biology, which proves he’s more than just a masculine actor. In his acting career, one of his more significant roles was in Stargate: Atlantis, where he starred as Ronon Dex.
And His Breakthrough Was in HBO’s Game of Thrones
Momoa was cast in a fantasy TV show called Game of Thrones, a series that became exceedingly successful than anyone had thought. And his role as Khal Drogo was a favorite among many.
As the leader of the savage Dothraki tribe, he was pretty violent. In one particular scene, Drogo brutally murders Viserys Targaryen by pouring molten gold onto his head.
But after marrying Daenerys Targaryen, he was injured in battles and couldn’t be saved, even after Daenerys sacrificing her unborn child to a witch.
Despite His Success as a Hollywood Actor, Including His Role in Aquaman, Braven, and Frontier, Momoa is a Man of Many Talents and has a “Softer Side.”
During the interview, Momoa revealed that he’s a real animal fanatic and a family man. He even has two dogs of his own, and both of them are an interesting mixture: half malamute, half-wolf.
What’s more, Momoa has two kids and a donkey. Yeah, you read that right. A donkey.
“He’s not the scary Dothraki King from Game of Thrones who ripped out a man’s tongue with his bare hands. He’s just a dude who takes bubble baths and razzes his friends and snuggles random dogs.”
