When you think of Jason Momoa, you probably think of him as a semi-untouchable, rich and famous Hollywood actor. But, as he shared on the internet this week, this wasn't always the case. In fact, prior to his breakthrough role as Khal Drogo on HBO classic, Game of Thrones, the actor had worked for many years in relative obscurity.
Now he's a verified superstar - with an icon for a wife and an enviable career. But the one facet of his skillset Momoa can never move away from is his passion for the planet. Momoa isn't afraid of calling people out when they seem to be forgetting that we're trying to sort our carbon footprint. The latest celebrity to be in the hot seat is none other than Chris Pratt.

Jason Momoa is a Hawaiian-American actor.

In spite of his Hawaiian heritage, Momoa was primarily raised in Iowa.And many don't know that, before he started out as an actor, Momoa actually studied both marine biology and wildlife biology - proving that he's more than just a pretty face.
One of his first bigger roles was on Stargate: Atlantis.The sci-fi military hybrid was actually fairly successful. Momoa starred as Ronon Dex, to much critical acclaim.
But there's really only one role that could be deemed Momoa's big break.In 2011, Momoa was cast in the first series of a relatively small fantasy show called Game of Thrones.
And, as we all know, it absolutely blew up.Game of Thrones became far more successful than anyone could have ever imagined. And Momoa's character, Khal Drogo, quickly became a fan favorite.
He had some pretty badass moments.As the leading warrior in the savage Dothraki tribe, Momoa was, unsurprisingly, pretty violent. In one particularly memorable scene, Drogo brutally murdered Viserys Targaryen by pouring molten gold onto his head.
But Khal Drogo met a particularly tragic end.He was injured during a battle and that injury became infected. In order to save his life, Daenerys was forced to sacrifice her unborn son to a witch. But the Drogo that came back was alive in name only. He was without any consciousness and Daenerys was forced to euthanize him.
In spite of his early departure, Momoa is still a fan-fave in the Game of Thrones canon.
Aquaman was also a part of 2017's Justice League.The character was so well liked that in 2018, the DC Universe decided that it was time for a solo film. Aquaman was a massive success.
Early in 2019, it was revealed that the movie had earned a coveted spot in the billion-dollar superhero club.person of color.
Since the success of Aquaman, Momoa has gone from strength to strength.
But Momoa is a man of many talents.
And Momoa has an equally exciting personal life.

He's also known to be an advocate for animal rights.

"What is wrong with humans?"
And it's safe to say that he did raise enough awareness on the issue.
And the latest victim of a slightly nicer message is fellow Hollywood hunk, Chris Pratt.
Rather than focusing on his body like most others were, Momoa noticed something else...

I know what you're all thinking, it's just a plastic bottle.
So obviously, Jason didn't take too well to it...The comment read: "Bro I love u but wtf on the water bottle. No single-use plastic. Come on."
And you can bet your ass the comment sparked some outrage amongst Pratt fans.
One user wrote this:I mean, I'm sure he would avoid taking a private jet if he cares so much about the environment, right? Bit of a low blow...
