Jason Momoa looks a little different these days — but it’s for a good cause.
The actor, known for playing burly, bearded characters such as Aquaman, Baba, and Drogo, shaved his beard in a video posted to YouTube on Wednesday.
“Goodbye Drogo, Aquaman, Declan, [and] Baba!” Jason wrote — referencing the bearded characters he played in Game of Thrones, Aquaman, Frontier, and his upcoming TV series See, respectively. “I’m shaving this beast off, it’s time to make a change.”
It’s the first time Jason has shaved since 2012, he said in the video..
Jason’s transformation was inspired by a new line of canned water that he is helping launch with the Ball Corporation.
As he explained in the video, aluminum cans, unlike plastic bottles, are “100 percent recyclable.”
“I just want to do this to bring awareness because plastics are killing our planet and I think we have a solution,” Jason said. “I don’t want to bitch about it [but] there’s only one thing that will really help our planet and save our planet — as long as we recycle — and that’s aluminum.”
He went on to explain that he worked for the past two months on his mission to get aluminum water made.
“I wanted to make my own water so I could be an example. So I had a product I could take out to give to the world. And that I could take to other companies in hope that they could do the same,” he said. “I’m on a quest. It’s my journey.”
His line is available in still, alkaline, sparkling, and spring water.
“It’s just water but I feel good about it,” Jason said. “I know I’m going to recycle this and I know that we can recycle it.”
