“I don’t know,” Momoa continued. “I’ll try my damnedest to keep ’em out of it. I love storytelling, I love theatrical things, I like directing and filmmaking, but I just want them to, you know, really to go for other things.”
The “Aquaman” star shared that if his kids really wanted to he would not to stand in their way but said it’s very “hard on people” and he wouldn’t want to put them through that.
“If they [really] want to, maybe,” the “Justice League” star explained. “But I don’t want them to get into acting. It’s very hard on people and I don’t want them to have that pressure. I’m tough, I can handle it, but I wouldn’t want to put someone I love [through] that.”
During an interview in 2018, the “Game of Thrones” actor opened up about his family and admitted if fans see him out with them it is best to leave him alone, Fox News reported.
“I’m pretty open, you know, I try to give respect to my fans and I hope they give me the respect back … I do like to please people when I have it in me to [but if] … I’m with my family you’re probably going to catch me as being an ass—-,” Jason shared.
