Actor Jason Momoa Brings Smiles To Kids In The Hospital
See what happened when he challenged a little boy to arm wrestle
Actor Jason Momoa proved he's a real life superhero when he visited sick kids at a hospital in Pittsburgh, PA yesterday.
Momoa, who's been in the city the past few months filming a new Netflix thriller called “Sweet Girl," took time out from his schedule to bring some cheer to young patients at UPMC Children's Hospital. The Game of Thrones and Aquaman star stopped by a few of the patients' rooms and posed for photos with families.
In a heartwarming video that was shared to social media, Momoa challenged Joshua, a young patient in a motorized wheelchair, to an arm wrestling match. He told the boy if he beat him, he could visit the Aquaman 2 set.
“If you win, you're coming," he said to the beaming patient. “But if I win, you're still coming."

Of course the patient quickly “won" the match and he erupted into giggles as Momoa accepted his defeat.
After spending time with the kids, Momoa posted some photos to his social media account. "The greatest part of being Aquaman is making children happy," the actor, who's originally from Hawaii, wrote in his post. He also mentioned that, along with a trip to the Aquaman 2 set, he promised Joshua his trident. “See u on the set of Aquaman 2 Joshua," the post continued. “Stay strong."
A real life superhero, indeed.
