Jason Momoa stripped down to his traditional Hawaiian malo during an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to promote his new Netflix film “Slumberland.”
The 43-year-old “Aquaman” star donned a bright pink and purple outfit to the talk show, but host Jimmy Kimmel was more keen on the malo the actor wore on a fishing trip that went viral in October.
The actor has been wearing the traditional garb on the set of the upcoming Apple TV Plus series set in the 18th century “Chief of War,” Momoa explained.

“I’m in it every day. I wear it all the time,” he told Kimmel. “It’s all 1780s, 1790s Hawaii. That’s what I wear every day. I was just getting ready for the role and I like to get into character and so I was tanning my white ass.”That’s when the host asked Momoa what he was wearing underneath his clothes at that moment.
The former “Games of Thrones” actor stood up and stripped down to his traditional malo. He then turned around to reveal and shake his butt, much to the benefit of the audience and the author of this article.
Photos of Momoa’s fishing trip went viral on Instagram last month for shots of his bare ass taken as he reeled in an aku tuna.
“Amazing time with da ohana,” Momoa captioned the post. “Big mahalo to captain hopper and J for helping us catch some aku. Dried aku all week. Cheeehuuu.”
