There are some things that we don’t want our loved ones to know about us. And for actor Jason Momoa, it’s that he ever appeared in Baywatch.

The actor even joked that his part on the show “never happened.”

On Sunday, a clip of Momoa having a conversation about playing a character named Jason Loane on Baywatch from 1999 to 2001 with the Australian radio show Fitzy & Wippa appeared on the show’s Instagram.

Co-host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli admitted that he had a bit of a cocktail hour during the lockdown, and his wife had told him to show Momoa how much of a “fan” he is.

“My wife said, ‘Prove to him that you’re a big fan and do that thing in the eyebrow that he does,’” Wippa said.

Laughing away, Momoa responded: “I was wondering there, buddy. That looks great; look at that.”

Momoa also described how his children were his biggest fans. As he talked about filming Aquaman 2, he said the kids have been happy being on set and learning the “stunts”.

But when Wippa asked Momoa what feedback he got from his kids after they watched Baywatch, Momoa said: “We don’t say the ‘B’ word here. We hide all of that mate! Never happened, mate!”

The Honolulu, Hawaii native also noted that his children wouldn’t be watching Game of Thrones either, as he portrayed Khal Drogo, which makes sense.

Momoa has two children – Lola Lonai, 14, and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha, 12 – with his wife, A Different World actress, Lisa Bonet.

During the rest of the interview, Wippa’s wife made a guest appearance on the show to speak to Momoa.

Wippa wanted to know if his wife Lisa wanted to ask a question, to which she replied: “Hi, how are you, Jason? Congratulations on the movie.”

She also left an invitation out on the table to Momoa to visit her and Wippa at their home when Covid-19 settles down, while also noting that that “might sound really creepy.”

Towards the end of the chat, Momoa sent his love to the people of Australia, talked about how much he enjoys the country, and shared his well wishes to them during the lockdown.

“I hope you all stay safe,” Momoa added.

Momoa appeared on the show to promote his upcoming action thriller Sweet Girl where he plays a widower who is working to bring the perpetrators of his wife’s death to justice while protecting his daughter,

Sweet Girl will be available for streaming on August 20 on Netflix.
