Aquaman was released in the United States this week and no matter how you felt about the film, there’s no denying that the movie’s star, Jason Momoa, is a delightful human being.
As if we didn’t already love him enough, Momoa posted multiple videos and pictures to Instagram yesterday, all showing his support to the Westside Oahu Nanakuli Boys and Girls Club.
“This is what it’s all about nothing like being back home on the Westside Oahu nanakuli boys and girls club got to surprise them with tickets to come and watch their unko Akuman on the big screen tonight,” the actor shared.
The first video shows a swarm of children greeting the actor with necklaces and it’s so precious, even those of us with the coldest hearts can’t help but feel emotional. The second video shows Momoa addressing the kids.
“What happens tonight?,” he asked the crowd. “My movie comes out tonight: Aquaman. Who wants to see it tonight?” All the kids shout “Me!” in response, so the actor granted them their wish. “Alright, all of you get to come watch it tonight,” he declared as the kids begin to celebrate.
The final image of the post is Momoa presenting the Boys & Girls Club of Hawai'i with a giant check for $22,000.
“This is so sweet,” responded on commenter.
“Very cool. Thanks for giving back,” wrote another.
The actor shared another video from his day of giving, which shows him chanting with the crowd along with his own kids.

Go watch My heart. Ohana Polynesia United YouTube channel subscribe now Many people see our islands in the pacific as isolated rocks separated by a vast and lonely ocean. But we Polynesians have always known the ocean doesn’t separate us, it connects us, as it does every land mass in the world. I am proud to be Aquaman and be here amongst so many people who live to honor the land and sea. I Fucking love you. Cheeeehuuuuuuuu. #aquaman That’s a wrap. Go watch em Aloha j
Considering how vocal he is about loving his kids and his life as a dad, it’s no surprise to see Momoa supporting the little ones, especially alongside his own children,
Not only did the actor wait to watch Aquaman with his kids, but Lola Iolani Momoa (his 11-year-old daughter) and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa (his 10-year-old son) both have cameos in the latest superhero film.
Since its worldwide release, Aquaman has helped the DC Extended Universe cross $4 billion at the worldwide box office. The movie was released in the United States earlier this week and it’s already projected to make $120 million at the Christmas holiday box office.0comments
