Aquaman star Jason Momoa is known as much for his flowing locks and his fit physique as his acting chops, so when the star decided to shave off his hair, the Internet went a little crazy.

He did it to draw attention to plastic pollution, explaining as the shears buzzed his head in the now-viral video:


“Aloha everyone,” he started off the clip, asking someone to “hand me those braids” as he held up two pink scrunchie-decorated plaits which were recently chopped from his head.

“Shaving off the hair,” he said, laughing and rubbing his head as a breeze blew past. “Ooh man, I’ve never even felt the wind right there.”

The shirtless star revealed he was “doing it for single-use plastics” as a woman buzzed the side of his head.
