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.

In An Inspiring Post Carlos Beltran Reveals That After 20 Years He’s Retiring From Baseball

@playerstribune/ @astrosbaseball/ Instagram

“But now, my time as a player has come to an end… I can’t wait for what the next chapter holds.”

Astros player Carlos Beltrán has published a piece in The Players Tribune stating his retirement. After 20 seasons, he finally got his ring and he’ll be putting the bat down for good.

Beltrán’s announcement comes right after winning his first World Series title in his long baseball career that spanned seven teams in two decades. The article is a carefully worded trip down memory lane. Based on one of Beltrán’s stories he was almost a volleyball player. Had it not been for his dad gently nudging him in the right direction, he may have never made it to the Major Leagues, let alone to win a World Series.

Throughout the article and his stories he expresses gratitude to all the players that came before him and gave him advice. He then talks about learning that giving advice to younger players is what the game really ended up being about for him.

There’s a story about Barry Bonds teaching him to bat that you can’t pass up. Beltrán also shares a story about his wife packing to move cross country on the day he got traded to the Giants in 2011. Beltrán says that type of support is what kept him going and searching for the win. A search that fatefully ended the same year he decided to retire.

This for sure is a bittersweet ending to a great story.

You can read the entire piece in The Player’s Tribune.

The Astros paid tribute to Beltrán on Instagram.

As did teammates Carlos Correa…

And Yuli Gurriel who also thanked him and called him a great player and friend.

However, his retirement from playing ball, may not be the last you’ve heard of Beltrán, who can be heard in this video interview with MLB talking about the possibility of managing in the future. Perhaps for his old team, the New York Yankees?

We’ll just have to wait and see…
