Momoa had to learn to hold it.
Jason Momoa has turned the world on its head with his depiction of Aquaman. For decades, the underwater hero was laughed at for having superpowers that appeared to be relegated to speaking with fish. Momoa brought a sense of badassery to the role, making Aquaman a "bro," in every sense of the word. His machismo was a bright spot in Justice League, and he's set to return as Arthur Curry in his own film next month.
Momoa and his co-star Amber Heard (who plays Mera) sat down with Entertainment Weekly recently to speak about the upcoming Aquaman film. Both actors revealed that it was difficult to get into and out of their costumes. Heard claimed that she had to be "vacuum sealed" into her costume before stating, “It’s a whole other level of functional art. They’re so intricate. You have to move in it, you have to breathe in it, you have to live in it.” Moma had to learn how to hold it in his costume, pushing off bathroom breaks due to the difficulty of getting out of his costume.
“It looks like it’s easy to pee in that,” he stated of the costume. “But really it’s not. And if you have the poopsies, it is very challenging. You’ve gotta be really good at holding it.” Check out Moma and Heard's EW segment below.
