‘Aquaman’ star Jason Momoa posted some pics of him kicking it with the All Blacks at the Auckland Airport on his Instagram.
The ABs fresh off a clean, uncontroversial win against Australia originally posted some photos with the caption “the people you run into in Auckland”.
Momoa then posted his own set of pics, with a caption explaining how big of an All Blacks fan he is.
“If you know me, you know I’m a f*cking HUGE @allblacks fan,” he wrote.
“So star-struck yesterday hanging with da boys @ofatuungafasi blew my mind and called my idol, the legend @tana_umaga13. I’m still smiling.”
“I’m so very thankful to have met you all, mahalo for the signed jerseys @its_degroot [Ethan Degroot] and amazing memories,” the Hawaain ‘Game of Thrones’ star continued.
“The bled stays home. Kick ass Saturday, I wish I could be there. See you in the New year my braddahs, great to catch up @riekoioane_, @gaaalebglaaarke [Caleb Clarke], @ofatuungafasi [and] all the All Blacks, cheeeeehuuuuuuu aloha.”
Jason looks absolutely chuffed in all of the photos. Who would’ve thought someone as famous as him would still fanboy out over meeting his idols?
Momoa is in Aotearoa to shoot a new TV show called ‘Chief of War’. When he got off the plane he was met with a pōwhiri, which he embraced humbly and respectfully.
He also shared to his Instagram followers photos of a traditional Hawaiian tattoo he got on the side of his head, something that he said was “20 years in the making”.
"Honored to be a part of this powerful moment in my life," he wrote in the caption. "Shared this day with some of my Ohana, Mahalo ot unko buff and aunti, momi, my pops, unko titus."
So awesome to see Momoa interacting with the ABs and sharing some of his heritage with his millions of followers.
