Jason Momoa Shares the ‘Trouble’ He’s Having Trying to Go Out in Public Now That He’s Famous for Aquaman, and There’s a Ridiculous Scarf Involved

Just over a decade ago, Jason Momoa was popular enough to be recognized by ardent sci-fi fans who tuned in. Stargate: Atlantis. Then, a succession of highly publicized concerts starting with playing Khal Drogo in The iron Throne and currently playing a role that Momoa trained hard for in Aquaman 2 made the actor a household name – and very recognizable in public. (Let’s not forget his next x fast role either.) Now that he’s DC and even Dunes Famously, the actor showed how he tries to hide in plain sight, and there’s a ridiculous scarf involved.

Taking to his Instagram Stories, the star of DC’s upcoming sequel James Wan showed how he tries to hide in public. He is currently on tour in Rome and wanted to discover the Spanish Steps, located between Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Trinità dei Monti. But when you’re an A-lister, it takes a bit of creativity, as you can see below.

This scarf anyway! In the full video footage, Jason Momoa also talks about the “problems” he faces given his height, remarkable overall look, and tattoos. Fans know pretty well what he looks like at this point, and it only takes one acknowledgment to cause the star a bit of trouble. He also compared himself to Little Red Riding Hood, noting,

One of the problems with being me is that not only am I 6’8 with brown skin, it’s because this fucking thing [points at tattoo on arm] then I put on my fucking shirt and my fucking pants. It doesn’t help! Anyway, I’m trying to bring back the energy of the big bad wolf, that BBW…

Talking about the tattoo on his arm, Momoa pointed it out while lamenting how people know it’s him from the tattoo. He is both a designer and an actor and has also mimicked the look of the tattoo on his shirt and pants legs. I know it’s probably hot, but I wonder if he could hide better in plain sight if he just put on a long-sleeved shirt? I say it like this…

Meanwhile, Momoa continued to speak on his Instagram about how he felt “like a Jedi” and planned to get himself and his pod up those Spanish steps trying to “hide” with the headscarf. All is apparently well that ends well, as the group took to the steps for a quick snapshot and Momoa even let her hair down for the moment.

Curiously, a famous action scene in the first Aquaman The film starring Amber Heard is set in Italy, although DC’s film was ultimately unable to shoot on location there. Originally planning to shoot in Erice, Sicily, the movie had to recreate the area instead, so it’s somewhat fitting that the actor gets the chance to visit the country now.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of obvious benefits to being a celebrity. For example, Jason Momoa’s social media is often littered with cool companies sending him free stuff. You wear awesome clothes and have experiences that very few people on the planet can relate to. In the specific case of this actor, Momoa explained how he hopes to make the Hollywood scene more accessible to many people from different backgrounds and ethnicities.

And yet, once a person becomes famous in Hollywood, the freedom to just be among people is curtailed. I imagine in a cool place like Rome it could get really frustrating, but Momoa handles it here with aplomb, a great sense of humor and a very silky scarf.
