Jason Momoa is showing peach again.
During an appearance Jimmy Kimmel Live! on November 9 to promote his new Netflix movie Slumberland, the actor addressed those butt-baring Instagram photos from a recent fishing trip. Back in October, Momoa bared his butt on his grid and Instagram Stories, stripping down to just a thong-loincloth garment, which he told Kimmel is a traditional Hawaiian malo.
“That’s a traditional malo, it’s what the Hawaiians wear,” Momoa told Kimmel, adding that he’s been wearing the garment “every day” for his upcoming Apple TV+ series Chief of War, which takes place in Hawaii in the 1780s and ’90s. “I was just getting ready for the role—cause I like to get into character—and so I was tanning my white ass,” the actor told Kimmel to explain his wearing the malo on his “Sunday funday” fishing trip. “It was a second—you go past and he just happened to take a little photo.”
When Momoa says every day, he means it. Though he arrived at the interview wearing a pink velvet jacket over a silk purple set that I would love to add to my pajama collection, the Aquaman actor stripped down to reveal a brown malo. “I actually don’t even like wearing clothes anymore,” Momoa added. “I’m in it every day. I wear it all the time.”
After putting his pajamas and jacket—which just so happens to be his actual Slumberland costume—back on, Momoa revealed that the Netflix movie is his first comedy after 23 years in the industry. “Please watch it. I just want to do comedies,” he told the audience.
He also opened up about his partnership with Be the Match, a charity that helps people join the bone marrow registry with just a swab of their cheek. Momoa began working with the charity after his friend was battling leukemia for the third time. “The registry is so little,” he said. “[But] you can be a superhero, you can save someone’s life.”
Motioning to the audience, he continued, “If we were all a part of a village and two of you needed help or were going to die, wouldn’t we all help the two people here?” Spoken like a true superhero.
