'I'm a full-fledged stalker': Jason Momoa reveals he's been obsessed with wife Lisa Bonet since he was 8
Jason Momoa has always been the man any girl would die for, and now his heartfelt confessions about Lisa Bonet will melt your heart, as the two explore their journey so far
Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have been each other's sun and stars, and Bonet probably has been "the moon of [his] life" ever since he was a young boy. While speaking about his lifelong crush on his wife, Momoa shared some sweet intimate memories of him being an absolute "stalker" to his wife. He said, "I am a full-fledged stalker. I didn't tell her that until we had two babies—otherwise, I'd be creepy and weird. I've always wanted to meet her. She was a queen, always."
Momoa was barely eight years old when he took the decision to commit himself to the woman whom he saw on TV. He said, "Ever since I was 8 years old and I saw her on TV, I was like, 'Mommy, I want that one! I'm like, 'I'm going to stalk you for the rest of my life and I'm going to get you.'"
So he did. Although the couple tied the knot legally just last year in October, the two got together when the then 26-year-old Momoa was working with 'Stargate: Atlantis'. The two met one night at an LA jazz club and immediately bonded over a Guinness which happens to be Momoa's favorite. He narrates the night as, "We just happened to be at the right place, right time, mutual friends...I convinced her to take me home, 'cause I was living in a hotel...We had Guinness and grits [at the 101 Coffee Shop in Hollywood] and, you know, the rest is history."
The couple who now share a home with their daughter, Lola Iolani Momoa, and son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, were in their youthful days pretty much a "dreaded" couple. Momoa revealed that the two would get dreadlocks together, "I actually had dreaded my hair for her. I had dreadlocks, she had dreadlocks. I literally turned around and I see her and she goes, ‘I’m Lisa.’ I turned around to my friend and I [pretended to scream]. I had f—ing fireworks going off inside, man."
As their love has been thriving over the years in spite of the 12-year age gap, Bonet previously had a "magical" relationship with her ex-husband Lenny Kravitz whom she met at a concert in 1986, shortly after which the couple eloped to Las Vegas and got married.
In 1989, Bonet said on The Arsenio Hall Show, "One day I turned around and I looked at him and I knew, that was my man." Recalling his relationship with Bonet, Lenny also said on Oprah's Master Class in 2013 that it was a "magical time" of his life. "She really helped to bring out the best in me and inspired me. We were very young and it was wonderful and we had Zoë. I see now what it was all about. It was really all about bringing this beautiful, child to the planet and also sharing the love that we had."
However, she seems to be just as satisfied (more but not less) with Momoa.
While talking to Porter, she said that Momoa was never one of those men who run away from their women. "What’s cool about Jason is that he’s an alpha male who stands for love and family...And to circle back to my own wounds, having an absent father, then to be fully met by a man of that stature, is really incredible. Jason embodies a rare form of masculinity in this day and age – he’s a leader; he’s generous. Just in terms of charisma, physique, the right use of power, responsibility, work ethic, you can go down the line.”
