Open Post: Hosted By Jason Momoa Stripping Down To A Traditional Hawaiian Malo On “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
In between exploring his semi-recent singledom with Eiza Gonzalez and Kate Beckinsale after divorcing Lisa Bonet, Jason Momoa’s been spending his time making your Aunt Barb hot under her Dress Barn collar by ass-out fishing in a traditional Hawaiian garment called a malo on Instagram and promoting his upcoming Netflix movie, Slumberland. Jason stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday and gave all of his admirers a little more spank-bank material by stripping down to a malo again, and this time he tried his hand at making that ass clap.
Jason came out, a pint of Guinness in hand, dressed in what I would imagine would be Captain Crunch’s getup if he were a pimp. In actuality, it was his Slumberland character’s costume, which I would assume he was wearing because he doesn’t own many pieces of clothing. Jimmy got the ball rolling on the definitely not pre-planned thirst trap by asking Jason why he was fishing while scantily clad in the garb of his ancestors.
Kimmel couldn’t resist bringing up one of the photographs of Momoa fishing in the traditional malo, pointing out that he noticed no one else on the boat was dressed this way.
Momoa explained that he was doing that for two reasons. He is “a creator, writer, director, producer and actor on this Apple series called ‘Chief of War,'” which takes place in the 1789s and 1790s in Hawaii. He explained that the traditional malo is what he wears every day for that project.
“I was just getting ready for the role because I like to get into character,” he told the late-night host. “And so I was tanning my white ass.”
Here’s Jason fishing:

He failed to mention that it was because he also obviously loves to make wine moms live, laugh, lubricate. Jason’s a rugged outdoorsy type and also says that a malo is much more comfortable than wearing standard clothing, so when Jimmy pried further, Jason admitted that he had one under his silk PJs at that very moment.
Kimmel jokingly asked him if he was wearing it right now underneath his Flip garb, and he shot back, “Of course.” When Kimmel started asking about the material, Momoa decided it was probably better to show than tell.
And that’s when the strapping tree of a man stood up to strip down and give the people the (almost) Full Momoa. He stopped once he got to the malo and gave his cheeks a jiggle, causing Kate Gosselin haircuts across the country to eject right off of the heads to which they belonged.
“Let me tell you, I’ve never felt more like Danny DeVito than I do right now,” Kimmel quipped…
Damn, why shade Danny DeVito that way, Jimmy? After Jason put his borrowed clothes back on, the two moved on to an important cause of Jason’s: urging people to get their cheeks swabbed for “Be The Match,” and still kept the ass jokes rolling.
Momoa redressed before talking about his work on the film and his association with the charity “Be the Match,” which helps connect donors with those in need of bone marrow transplants.
“I’m really glad you have your clothes on while you’re talking about this,” Kimmel told him.
“Me too!” Momoa replied.
“‘Cause you don’t want to swab the wrong cheek, you know what I’m saying?”
Here’s the full interview; skip to the 6:15 mark if you’ve got a craving for cakes:
Jason shared that Slumberland is the first time he’s gotten to do comedy, so I hope this is the start of his branching out. Yes, he’s hot and makes a perfect shirtless intense superhero or Dothraki warlord, but that’s getting old, and it’s high time for him to get uglified and repulse the masses Charlize Theron Monster-style if he ever wants to grace the Oscars stage as a winner rather than just a belching presenter.
