If You're Bodyshaming Jason Momoa, Seriously Take A Long, Hard Look In The Mirror

Stop guilting people for not upholding an impossible body standard at all times.

When you look at Jason Momoa, how would you describe his physical appearance?

Fit? Ripped? Muscular? Surprisingly not as hairy as what his beard and hair would have you believe?

Well according to certain folks on the internet, Momoa is apparently the new definition of the unflattering term “dad bod.”

Oh boy…

After some shirtless photos of the actor on a recent holiday appeared online, some people took issue with his physique and started body shaming him for not rocking that buff bod he had in Aquaman.

This is the photo in question that caused such a ridiculous furor.

All the basement-dwelling trolls don’t seem to realise is that maintaining a superhero physique 24/7 is a full time job in itself and completely unsustainable. It’d be nice to have chiseled abs every day but it’s also nice to relax and enjoy life as well.

And besides, how on earth does someone look at Momoa and reasonably think that he’s not in good shape? If he is the new standard for what a “dad bod” is, then the rest of us men might as well never take off our shirts ever again.

This whole saga is the latest example of how society holds people – especially famous people – to an impossible body standard and anything less than that is unworthy. It also opens discussion on double standards and how we should view people’s bodies.

While it’s nice that people have defended Momoa and his “dad bod”, it also exposes the hypocrisy in this whole circus because a man is receiving praise for being healthy whereas a woman would be shamed for the exact same thing. It’s messed up.

People’s bodies aren’t anyone’s to judge just because it doesn’t live up to society’s ridiculous standards. If Momoa’s physique – or anyone’s physique – isn’t up to your standard, then you need to take a long, hard look in the mirror and understand that this problem is on you and you alone.

Jason Momoa Was Basically A Broke Uni Student During His Early Game Of Thrones Days

One of us, one of us.

Jason Momoa may be one of the biggest stars in the world right now thanks to his delightful turn as Arthur Curry in Aquaman and Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, it wasn’t an easy journey getting to where he is now.

The superstar shared a throwback photo of himself living out of a van and revealed it was taken during a break while he was filming season one of Game of Thrones. You’d think that the cast would be living it up on that show but it turns out that he was just as poor as all the broke uni students who were watching/pirating the show at the time.

Poor uni student during the early days of GoT? Can totally relate.

Writing in the caption, Jason revealed that he and his pal, Brian Andrew Mendoza, were so broke at the time that they couldn’t fly home so they decided to hire a van instead and drove around Ireland in search of shenanigans and the “greatest pint of Guinness.”

“While filming GOT we had a lil break We were to broke to fly home so we rented a panel van aka UHAUL in Belfast and drove around beautiful amazing IRELAND searching for the greatest pint of Guinness.”

But as history shows, things eventually fell into place for Jason after his impromptu Ireland odyssey as he quickly became a big star after Thrones became a big hit and it ultimately led to him being cast as Aquaman.

Putting it another way, when the internet loses its collective mind when you do something as trivial as shaving off a beard for a good cause that’s how you know you’ve made it.
