Jason Momoa and his new friend hung out together in Hawaii wearing traditional malo.
Jason Momoa’s commitment to wearing his new favorite garment, a Hawaiian malo, every chance he gets is unwavering.
Last Wednesday, the 43-year-old Aquaman star told Jimmy Kimmel he enjoys wearing a malo, which resembles a loincloth. He wears his malo daily while preparing to film his forthcoming Apple TV+ series Chief of War. Lucky for us, he’s not shy; Momoa has shared several photos and videos of himself wearing the malo during outings on social media.
Momoa recently posted a carousel of photos and videos of him sporting the garment as he guided martial artist Gordon King Ryan around Hawaii. He even convinced him to wear a malo and get a matching thigh tattoo.

“had the pleasure of meeting these two badasses gordon and sonny. @gordonlovesjiujitsu we laughed and drank, and they choked us all out,” Momoa said in the post’s caption. “it was amazing. welcome to my ohana.”
“can’t wait to see u again, my friends safe travels,” Momoa added. “and good luck world he’s gonna stay KING aloha j.”
“So my new bro, he’s fully Hawaiian now,” Momoa says of his new friend in a video included in the post “He got tatted, he’s got his malo on, we got him drinking mananalu.”
“He’s full local now, look at that,” Momoa says in the video, chuckling with Ryan as they turn to bare their derriere’s to the camera as they take in the view. “Appreciate that view, bro — see how good that view is?”
Ryan shared the video on his Instagram account, too. He captioned the photo, “Met a local, got a tattoo..”
Jason Momoa Wears Malo on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
During Momoa’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last Wednesday, the actor told Kimmel, 55, he always wears the malo.
“I was just getting ready for the role, ’cause I like to get into character, and so I was tanning my white ass,” Momoa told Kimmel of his now famous fishing trip in the malo. “It was a second — you go past, and he just happened to take a little photo.”
“Oh my God, yes. I actually don’t even like wearing clothes anymore,” Momoa said when Kimmel asked if the malo was comfy. “I’m in it every day. I wear it all the time.”
Momoa’s new movie Slumberland premiered on Netflix on Nov. 18.
