On the occasion of actor Jason Momoa’s 38th birthday, it’s only right that we take a moment to celebrate him completely. Now, we’ve put together a hell of a good slideshow that properly shows off just how good-looking he is, but make no mistake: Momoa is so much more than a pretty face.
Aside from making you feel all the feelings (you know what we mean), Momoa has been letting us cheer him on as his star power has grown over the years. Discovered in 1998 by fashion designer Takeo Kobayashi, Momoa was encouraged to start modeling at a relatively young age. After gaining notoriety as a male model, he gradually moved into acting — a natural fit for the charismatic former marine biology major.
First appearing in Baywatch in 1999, Momoa has gone on to appear in television shows like Stargate: Atlantis, The Red Road, Netflix’s Frontier and, of course, Game of Thrones. While he’s no stranger to film acting, he will arguably shoot to international notoriety after starring as Aquaman in the upcoming film Justice League.
And so, we must celebrate this accomplished man, who not only acts but is an outdoorsman, a dedicated family man, a loyal Guinness drinker and a lovable goofball — take one look at his Instagram and you’ll see proof of this. Here are some of the most swoon-worthy and perfect GIFs of Momoa to celebrate him on his big day.
