With Justice League in theaters and Aquaman on the way, Jason Momoa has been on a whirlwind promotional tour. At the same time, he’s found time to be on the cover of Men’s Health and now American Airlines’ in-flight magazine American Way.

It’s golden hour at Hastings Point, a picturesque surfers’ beach 70-odd miles south of Brisbane, and Jason Momoa is getting antsy.
The 38-year-old American actor has been preening for hours, and he’s not entirely at ease with the situation. “Sorry to ruin your moment,” he says to a nearby couple trying to have a romantic moment. “I don’t normally pet myself in front of a bunch of people.”
Momoa is on Australia’s east coast to film Aquaman, the $300 million fantasy flick, due out next year, in which he plays the lead opposite Nicole Kidman and Amber Heard. Until now, his most visible role has been the brutal warrior Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. His latest film projects, though, will potentially catapult him into a different category of fame, and he’s learning that this sort of success comes with a price.
The photographer prods him to loosen up—More smolder! Less frown! And despite her best efforts, Momoa will not be charmed into taking off his shirt. At one point, he mutters to nobody in particular, “I’m not a model, I’m an actor.”
