Jason Momoa Tells Gael Garcia Bernal How He Fell In Love With Wife Lisa Bonet When He Was Only Eight

Actor, producer, director Gael Garcia Bernal, and caveman turned movie star, Jason Momoa were on James Corden this week and the conversation quickly turned to how Momoa’s appearance made everyone feel “a little less manly.” It’s probably something Momoa gets fairly often. Standing at 6’4” and 215 lbs, his stature would intimidate anyone. While his smoldering eyes, rugged beard and wild mane contribute to what Corden and Bernal were feeling, its probably the fact that Momoa is constantly cast as a marauding maniac, like Khal Drogo in “Game of Thrones,” that make it hard for them to make eye contact with him.

But hey, according to Corden, Garcia hasn’t aged in 20 years, so if you think about it, that’s a stronger super power than hyper-manliness anyway. Right, guys? No? Just me? Okay.

I wouldn’t mess with this dude no way, no how.

With Momoa starring as Aquaman in the upcoming “Justice League” Film, it’s no surprise that he’s looking extra jacked. Aquaman has always been the butt of the joke, but no one will be clowning on Momoa. Not to his face anyway.

But then again, look how cute Garcia Bernal is.

He may not get you with his muscles, but he’ll melt your heart with that smile.

Add Garcia to the list of ageless Latinos like J.Lo and Mario Lopez, both of whom have just gotten better with age.

Check out the rest of the interview below, where Momoa recounts falling in love with his wife Lisa Bonet and Garcia Bernal and Corden just stare at him in awe.

It feels a little bit like a stalker-y story, but I think it’s meant to be sweet. You be the judge.

Momoa stars as Aquaman in DC’s “Justice League” out this week and Garcia costars as the voice of Héctor in Disney/Pixar’s “Coco,” releasing next week. Check out our review of “Coco,” here.

These talented Latinos prove skills can come in many forms—don’t ever put them (or yourself) in a box. From producing films and opening restaurants, here are nine celebs who are inspiring us to reach for las estrellas. After all, we are all capable of becoming triple threats.

1. Selena Gomez: Singer, actress and producer

Selena Gomez is the name behind one of Netflix’s most popular (and controversial) shows in the last two years, serving as an executive producer for the streaming service’s adaptation of “13 Reasons Why.” Not one to leave her music career behind, Gomez has also been belting out hits this year such as “Back to You” and “Wolves,” as well as having a guest appearance at one of Taylor Swift’s Reputation tour. And don’t forget she first emerged on the scene as an actress, starring on the Disney Channel’s “Wizards of Waverly Place.”

2. Eva Mendes: Actress, fashion designer and director

Eva Mendes has recently put acting on hold for a bit in order to raise her family, which should be celebrated. She is still honing her skills in other areas, namely fashion design. Mendes is the face and designer behind her womenswear collaboration with New York and Company, of which she recently launched her fifth collection this past spring. She also has some writing and directing credit under her belt with the film short, “California Romanza.”

3. Gael García Bernal: Actor, singer and producer

Before he was giving us the feels during the song “Remember Me” in Pixar’s animated feature, “Coco,” Gael García Bernal was receiving critical acclaim for his starring roles in “Mozart in the Jungle,” “The Motorcycle Diaries,”  “Amores perros” and “Y Tu Mamá También.” Behind the camera, he has executive produced films including the biographical film “César Chávez” and “Desierto,” a film about a migrant who leads a group across the U.S.-Mexico border. He also produced the upcoming Spanish-language series called “Aqui en la Tierra,” which premiered at Cannes this year.

4. Diego Luna: Actor, singer and producer

Of course you can’t talk about Gael García Bernal without mentioning his bffl, Diego Luna. Both men are multi-hyphenates. Luna has starred in films such as “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” and partnered up with García Bernal as executive producer and director of “César Chávez.” He also sang covers for his starring role in the animated flick, “The Book of Life.” Luna and García Bernal also co-founded the Ambulante film festival, which showcases documentary films across Mexico for two months.

5. Jennifer Lopez: Actress, singer, dancer and the list goes on

What *can’t* J.Lo do? She has been wowing audiences for decades, from her killer dance moves in her Fly Girl days on “In Living Color,” her breakout acting role in the movie that will be #foreverinourhearts “Selena,” starring in romcoms including “The Wedding Planner” and “Maid in Manhattan” to singing about some bling bling on “El anillo pa cuando.” When she gets a break from all of that, she also produces and judges in the NBC television series “World of Dance.”

6. Rosario Dawson: Actress, singer and dancer

One of the OG Latina powerhouses, Rosario Dawson made her feature film debut in “Kids” back in 1995, and then went on to show off her pipes and dance skills in “Rent.” Dawson also helped create the four-issue comic book series, “O.C.T.: Occult Crimes Taskforce,” which was published in 2006.

7. Danny Trejo: Actor, producer and restaurateur

Playing the Machete character isn’t the only thing actor Danny Trejo is slays. After roles in multiple films and trying a hand at producing, the Echo Park-born-and-raised actor decided to take a bite out of the culinary world. He opened the first Trejo’s Tacos location near Miracle Mile in Los Angeles and a second one at USC Village in late 2017. Now he has six restaurants under the Trejo name, including three Trejo’s Cantinas.

8. John Leguizamo: Actor, screenwriter/playwright and producer

Let the chips fall where they may! Sunday June 10th Tony Awards!

A post shared by John Leguizamo (@johnleguizamo) on

As the son of Colombian immigrants in Queens, John Leguizamo used his comedic skills to defend himself from school bullies. Now he isn’t needing much defending. Leguizamo is out front with his sparring comedy, displayed in his recent Broadway show, “Latin History for Morons,” which was nominated this year for a Tony Award for Best Play. He has also written and produced a variety of one-man shows on stage. Leguizamo ended up taking home a Tony Special Award for Lifetime Achievement. Apart from his Broadway accolades, he has also played major roles in feature films including “Carlito’s Way” and “Romeo + Juliet.”

9. Dulce María: Actress, singer and dancer

Mexican actress, singer and dancer Dulce María first proved her acting skills in the telenovela classic “Rebelde.” She then catapulted with her co-stars into singing by forming part of the group RBD, which originated from the telenovela. She has recorded three albums as a solo artist, with DM as her most recent album.

Here’s How People Are Reacting To The News Of ‘Remember Me’ From ‘Coco’ Being Performed At The Oscars

Coco / Pixar / @TheAcademy / Twitter

The Academy has announced the musical artists performing at the Oscars this Sunday night and it is causing people to get very emotional.

This is not a drill.

“Remember Me” is nominated for Best Original Song. Other nominees and performers include Mary J. Blige singing “Mighty River” from the film “Mudbound;” Sufjan Stevens will sing “Mystery of Love” from “Call Me By Your Name;” Keala Settle is singing “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman,” and Common and Andra Day are performing “Stand Up for Something” from “Marshall.”

Gael García Bernal, Natalia LaFourcade, and Miguel will take the stage and perform “Remember Me” from “Coco” and that’s kind of major.

“We’re excited to have these talented artists showcase the powerful contribution music makes to filmmaking,” show producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd said in a press statement. “It’s a privilege to welcome them to the 90th Oscars stage.”

Do you remember “Remember Me”? Here’s the version you can look forward to.

This bilingual version will surely make Latinxs delight with joy during the live performance. But we’re just wondering how Bernal will join in on this rendition.

As you recall, Bernal plays Hector, a lonely street musician, desperate to return to the living to see his family. Here’s the version he sang in the movie.

If he sings that lullaby version we might just die.

People on Twitter are already losing it with the Oscar announcement.

The film’s director, Lee Unkrich, is pretty excited to have Bernal, Miguel, and LaFourcade represent the movie, which is also nominated for Best Animated Film.

Some are wondering if “Remember Me” will be played during the “In Memoriam” segment of the show.

That would make perfect sense, especially because it’s honoring those that passed away this year.

Just the thought of seeing Bernal at the Oscars is already too much for some people to take.

Let’s see how many times the camera operators show Bernal on camera.

People are already expecting their bodies to give out.

We suggest recording the performance because chances are you might miss it the first time around.

Legit, people cannot wait for this performance.

Prepare to be a wreck for days to come.

We expect everyone to be glued to the tv when this performance begins.

The 90th Academy Awards airs this Sunday at 5 p.m. (PST) on ABC.
