If you don’t know who they are, you have perhaps been living under a rock for the past decade or so. SHE, the luminous Lisa Bonet, comes from The Cosby Show fame and her star rose during the 80s and the 90s. HE, the magnetic Jason Momoa, powered his way through Game of Thrones and hasn’t slowed down since his untimely exit from the show (RIP Khal Drogo). Together, they are one of Hollywood’s most insane powerhouse couples.
The couple had been together for years before they even decided to get married back in 2017 and have two wonderful children together. Though they seem to lead a very unconventional Hollywood lifestyle together, the life they do lead is nothing short of fascinating. Here are 20 facts we didn’t even know about the truly interesting couple.
20 He’s Actually Close With Her Ex-Husband (Lenny Kravitz)
You’d probably rarely see this outside of Hollywood. Lisa Bonet was married to rock star Lenny Kravitz and the two have a daughter together (Zoe Kravitz), so naturally, they should all be on good terms together for the sake of the family. But they go beyond that. Jason is very close to Lenny and the two have a genuine and caring friendship. Now THAT’S ex goals.
19 Mother Nature Comes First
With their children, Lisa and Jason are adamant that their children get outdoors as much as humanly possible. The celebrity couple has publicly said that their kids spend the majority of their time outside in nature, constantly learning about their surroundings. The kids have often said that they prefer to be outside more than anything and we agree with them.
18 Jason Is Not The Man You See On Camera
If you happened to have been a fan of Game of Thrones, you know that Jason’s famous character, Khal Drogo, is absolutely, 100 percent nothing like Jason in real life. Well, maybe except his deep devotion to his wife Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). Jason is known to be a gentle giant of sorts – charismatic, hilarious, and a very easy going guy.
17 Do They Suffer Through Jealousy?
It’s common that couples will sometimes suffer through a little bit of jealousy in their lifetimes, and it’s even more common when you have two people who look like Lisa and Jason do – insanely attractive. But even the slightest bit of jealousy doesn’t seem to seep out when you see them. They are very trusting with one other and it shows.
16 Zoe’s Close Relationship With Both Her Parents And Her Stepfather
Zoe, who is now one of Hollywood’s top starlets' thanks to her work in shows like Big Little Lies. Zoe is also extremely close to her family, especially her mother, siblings, and her stepfather. Her relationship with Jason has always been a special one and the two can rock the red carpet. It’s a very refreshing relationship.
15 They Run A 'No TV' Household
Wanna know why Lisa and Jason along with their children are so in touch with nature? It’s because they don’t allow televisions to grace their household (yes – ACTORS ACTUALLY DO THIS). “We don’t own a television set at home,” Jason once said. “Our kids are always outdoors. I grew up being an artist, but also rock climbing and traveling the world and teaching my kids.”
14 Lisa Felt Like An Outsider Growing Up Due To Her Heritage
Even though she became a star on The Cosby Show, Lisa Bonet said she ran into some issues growing up in a mixed-race family because she really didn’t fit in on either side. She actually had a falling out with her mom’s side of the family because she married someone they didn’t approve of. She often said she was the black sheep of her family.
13 They Have A Non-Hollywood Conventual Marriage
You’ll notice that a lot of Hollywood couples say that they have a “non-conventual” relationship while raising a family in the public eye, but in Jason and Lisa’s case, this is true. While they live their lives in the spotlight, they manage to bask in it comfortably and share what needs to be shared, and keep private want needs to be. It’s a fine balance.
12 Jason’s Hawaiian Roots Mean Everything To Him
If you didn’t know, Jason was born and raised in Hawaii and takes his Hawaiian traditions extremely seriously. He’s often spoken about The Haka, which is a ceremonial dance in Maori culture. “I’m half Hawaiian and the Haka is a very sacred thing, something your family teaches you,” he said in an interview. “My father taught me.”
11 They’ve Been Together Longer Than People Have Known Who He Actually Is
Jason really didn’t become super famous until he starred in Game of Thrones, so when people were eager to find out more about this hunk of a man, they were surprised to learn that he was already coupled off with Lisa Bonet, a very familiar face in the TV world. Even though they had two children together, they didn’t get hitched until 2017.
10 Both Don’t Mind Putting Their Entire Family In The Public Eye
The couple has said before that they want their children to be comfortable in the spotlight since that’s how it was for Lisa when she was young. Their children play active roles on the red carpet during premieres and are common in pics on their parents’ IG feeds. Regardless, they seem like a down-to-earth family.
9 Family Comes Before Acting For Jason
While he’s said that he’s extremely grateful for all the doors Hollywood has opened, he’s always going to be a family man. “I haven’t been an actor who’s been able to pick and choose roles,” he said. “And being a family man, it’s been about putting food on the table.”
8 “Hold A Woman The Way She Wants To Be Held” Is Advice Jason Lives By
It’s clear to see that Jason and Lisa have a very loving marriage, which seems perfect at times. He told People Magazine some solid marriage advice: “I think a man needs to be a man. To hold a woman the way she wants to be held. Just do whatever your woman wants, and you’ll be fine.”
7 DC Comics Over The Marvel Universe?
Man, do NOT bring up the Avengers in this household (we’re so kidding). Everyone in Jason and Lisa’s orbit happens to be a DC fan over Marvel, and with good reason too. Jason is known as Aquaman, HOWEVER, Aquaman isn’t his kid’s favorite superhero. His son loves the Flash while his daughter loves Wonder Woman. Just give 'em a few more years.
6 Yoga Mom
Lisa takes pride her in body and her spiritual health and not only is she organic, but she’s also a major yoga geek. And as anyone who has ever done yoga will tell you – it’s no walk in the park. Lisa even tried to get Jason involved in it, but he was a little skeptical because it’s not easy in the least.
5 Her Feelings On His Game Of Thrones Life
If you follow Jason on social media, you know how close he is to his former Game of Thrones co-stars, especially his former on-screen wife, Emilia Clarke. He’s constantly boosting her up, praising her talents, and seems in awe of her when they’re around each other. Thing is, so is Lisa, who is friends with Emilia. The trust is all there.
4 Who Brings Up Their Age Difference?
Age is nothing but a number, and that’s the motto that Jason and Lisa appear to live by. Lisa is actually around 12 years older than Jason, which isn’t rare in this day and age. Most women find it perfectly normal to be with men younger than them (men have been doing it since literally the beginning of time) and it’s about time.
3 Lisa Bonet Was Jason’s Childhood Celebrity Crush
This was hilarious to learn that Jason had a HUGE crush on Lisa during her Cosby days and that he actually sought out to land her. “I was definitely…that was the first time when I was like, “I want that one. I want her. I’m going to get her,” he told Essence. Good thing he got her, otherwise, that sentiment would’ve been creepy.
2 Jason Can Be Overprotective
Jason happens to be overprotective of his family, his parents, and those closest to him. “I’m a father, a son, and a grandson, and if anyone messed with my (family), and if the law didn’t care about it, what would I do?” he said when asked about giving his life for his family.
1 Did He Copy Her Hairstyle (For Movie Purposes)?
On The Late Late Show With James Corden, Jason actually admitted that he copied her hairstyle before they even met. “I actually had dreaded my hair for her,” he revealed. “I had dreadlocks, she had dreadlocks.” He has, of course, since lost the dreadlocks due to head and neck pain.
