Hollywood's renowned actor, Jason Momoa, recently opened up about his career's ebbs and flows, revealing an unexpectedly modest perspective on his achievements. In a candid interview with the U.S. publication Variety, Momoa, best known for his roles in "Game of Thrones" and "Aquaman," delved into both his latest project and his personal reflections on his career trajectory.

Momoa, at 44, is venturing into new territory with his docuseries "On the Roam," where he explores a variety of passions and pursuits. This series, according to Momoa, mirrors what he would typically engage in during his leisure time.

It's an endeavor that allows him to embrace a range of interests, though he humbly admits to not mastering any of them. “I’m a solid C+ to B- at everything,” he quipped, underlining his Jack-of-all-trades approach.

Momoa's Unfulfilled Aspirations

Despite a career that many would envy, Momoa shared a striking insight during the interview, suggesting he still has significant aspirations unfulfilled. “I don’t really think I’ve done anything so far,” he stated, expressing a hunger for more impactful and memorable roles in the future.

Momoa's self-assessment extends to his aspirations for cinematic success and recognition. He openly expressed a desire to be part of films that make a splash during awards season, an ambition yet to be realized in his career.

“I’ve just never been a part of movies that — none of my movies are going to the awards. I’m not really that guy,” he admitted candidly. The conversation concluded with Momoa expressing hope for future projects that resonate more deeply with both critics and audiences.

“So maybe one day it’d be nice to do one of those kinds of movies, where it’s a really, really good movie,” he reflected optimistically. As Momoa continues to navigate his multifaceted career, his latest revelations offer a glimpse into the mindset of an actor still striving for new heights and deeper fulfillment in the competitive and ever-changing landscape of Hollywood.
