Jason Momoa Slammed for Being Rude on Live TV
Jason Momoa has left fans disappointed with his behavior during a recent television appearance, where he was seen being rude to a fellow guest. The Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom star was a guest on Monday night’s (December 11) episode of the British talk show The One Show. Momoa, 44, was joined by Irish actor James Nesbitt and celebrity chef Nigella Lawson. Momoa was there to talk about the release of his latest Aquaman installment later this month. But viewers noticed the actor’s bad manners towards Lawson. As Jason sat in between the two other guests, he was facing completely towards Nesbitt, turning his back towards the food writer.
During the episode, Momoa was asked about his interest in activism for the environment and rainforest. The See star said his dream job was to be a marine biologist. Born and raised in Hawaii, the Polynesian actor always felt “really connected” to nature and was a biology major while attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa. When he was offered his first acting gig in Baywatch, his life completely changed. His role as the DC superhero has been fun for him, as Momoa loved taking on a role that aligned so much with his previous passions. When Lawson adds commentary, Momoa clearly ignores her and continues to talk solely to Nesbitt. Watch the interaction below:
Oh no-a, Momoa
Fans were quick to take to X (formerly Twitter) to slam Momoa’s rude behavior. One user wrote: “Very rude body language by Jason Momoa, putting his back to Nigella.” Another wrote: “Jason Momoa sat with his back to Nigella the whole time on the sofa…so rude…Grace Jones slapped Russel Harty for that…quite right, too.” Meanwhile, one person wrote: “Well, this isn’t surprising. We all know how he treats women. Rude misogynistic a–hole.” One person criticized the actor, writing: “What a rude man Jason Momoa is. He may think he is an A lister but he is a z lister in real life.”
