‘Aquaman’ Star Jason Momoa Just Shaved Off His Iconic Beard For The First Time In 7 Years

Jason Momoa is a certified hunk. The rugged actor and husband of Lisa Bonet won hearts everywhere for his role as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones.

His star continued to rise from there. Jason took theaters by storm in his role as the DC hero in the film Aquaman. He is many women’s idea of a perfect man, but he’s made a big change that has surprised fans. After seven years of growing it out, Jason has shaved his famous beard.

Jason didn’t just wake up and decide to get rid of the beard. He did it specifically to draw attention to a good cause. In case he wasn’t swoon-worthy enough, he also cares about the planet.

Jason is working with the Ball Corporation to launch a new line of canned water. The company hopes to get people to make the change from plastic to recyclable aluminum. The line will be available in still, sparkling, alkaline, and spring water.

Jason Momoa is one of Hollywood’s most beloved stars right now. He’s also pretty easy on the eyes.

Many people first got to know Jason in his role as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. He’s been acting since the late ’90s (when he appeared in Baywatch Hawaii).

His popularity helped him score his role as the lead in DC Comics’ Aquaman. The film made over $1 billion at the box office in the United States alone.

As fans have gotten to see more of Jason, they’ve also learned he’s a sweetheart. He’s married to actress Lisa Bonet, and they are an amazing couple.

Jason recently shocked fans by making a big change to his signature look. In a video posted to his Instagram early Thursday, Jason shaved off his iconic beard!

It’s the first time Jason has shaved his beard since 2012. The shocking move is for a good cause.

Jason is working on a line of canned water with the Ball Corporation. The goal is to encourage people to get away from using plastics and opt for recyclable aluminum instead.

“I wanted to make my own water so I could be an example. So I had a product I could take out to give to the world. And that I could take to other companies in hope that they could do the same,” Jason explained in the video. “I’m on a quest. It’s my journey.”

If you’re worried his hair might be the next thing on the chopping block, don’t worry. Thanks to Lisa, we won’t be seeing Jason shedding his long locks anytime soon.

“My wife would leave me if I cut my hair so I just don’t cut my hair,” Jason joked to the Daily Telegraph a few months back. “I am not cutting my hair for a while, I will tell you that much.”

His role as Aquaman provides another safeguard. “I am going to be playing this guy for a while and I don’t want to wear a wig,” he told the newspaper. “I think we are good for the next two years.”

While many fans applaud Jason for shaving for a good cause, others miss his scruffy beard. Maybe it will convince people to think twice before using nonrecyclable materials.

Luckily, most people find Jason just as sexy without the beard. That jawline is strong.

It’s great to see Jason doing something drastic to draw attention to environmental issues. He’s truly the (Aqua)man we need.
