The Aquaman actor spoke with InStyle about his personal life. “I didn’t know what it takes to be a dad,” said Momoa. “And I don’t want to just tell my son, ‘Because I said so.’ I really want to connect, and I want him to be vulnerable and open.”

Jason Momoa Talks About The Importance of Vulnerability

The actor went on to share how important vulnerability is to him as a father. “I’m a warrior, and I will lay it down. But I’m also the first one to say, ‘I have a lot of problems, and I want to be able to correct those problems.’ “

Jason, who shares two children, Wolf and Lola, with wife Lisa Bonet, also discussed his love of the color pink. “Pink is just a beautiful color. And I’m pretty secure in my masculinity. I don’t really give a sh*t what anyone thinks.”

Jason credits therapy with helping him calm down after intense fight scenes. “I’m amping myself up all day long, and then my nervous system doesn’t know that I’m not lopping people’s heads off,” he said. “For me to relax and sit still is next to impossible.”

We love that this papa is showing his kids what it means to be both strong and vulnerable.
