'I'm shaving this beast off, it's time to make a change': Jason Momoa shaves off signature beard for good cause
Aquaman star Jason Momoa has bid farewell to his signature beard after seven years of not shaving, and it's all for a good cause. According to a report, the actor has filmed himself ditching his thick facial hair for the first time since 2012, after growing the beard to play a number of on-screen roles. Being the usual witty self, Jason captioned the clip, "Goodbye Drogo, Aquaman, Declan, (and) Baba," referencing his respective characters from Game of Thrones, the DC Comics blockbuster, and TV series Frontier and See.
"I'm shaving this beast off, it's time to make a change," said the 39-year-old actor reflecting on his new appearance, which revealed his chiseled jawline, he quipped: "Looks pretty good!" The grooming video was uploaded on YouTube as part of Momoa's collaboration with officials at the Ball Corporation to promote a new line of canned water, which is made of "100 per cent recyclable" aluminum.
The aim of the shoot was to encourage fans to make a major change in their lives and become more environmentally friendly."I just want to do this to bring awareness because plastics are killing our planet and I think we have a solution. I don't want to b**ch about it (but) there's only one thing that will really help our planet and save our planet - as long as we recycle - and that's aluminum." Jason added that about 75 per cent of all aluminum that's ever been used is still in use today and it's 100 per cent recyclable. So, people can drink the can and in about 60 days, it'll be back. Momoa said he has been working on the passion project for the last two months, so he can set an example to friends, fans and family and do his part to clean up the oceans.
Urging people to stop using plastic and use aluminiun, Jason said, "It's just water but I feel good about it. I know I'm going to recycle this and I know that we can recycle it. So please, please. There's a change coming. Aluminum. We got to get rid of these plastic water bottles." He added,"Aquaman's trying to do the best he can. For your kids, for my kids, for the world. Clean up the oceans, clean up the land."
