Starring Jason Momoa takes on the All Blacks in Auckland and reveals the Kiwis are his favorite team

Hollywood megastar Jason Momoa says he was “stars-strucked” when he faced the New Zealand All Blacks in Auckland on Sunday.

In a post shared on the All Blacks’ Instagram account, titled “The People You Meet in Auckland,” the Aquaman and Game of Thrones star can be seen taking selfies and hugging the team.

The 43-year-old reposted the photos to his 17million followers on Instagram with the caption, “Mahalo to my favorite team in the world Aloha j.”

Mahalo is Hawaiian for “thank you”.

In a second post, Momoa wrote that he is a “huge” All Blacks fan and thanked the team for signing uniforms for him and giving him an experience he will never forget.

“Still smiling, so grateful to have met y’all Mahalo for the jerseys signed… and great memories,” he wrote.

Momoa is a noted All Blacks fan and has strong ties to New Zealand, having briefly lived in the country and starred alongside Kiwi actor Temuera Morrison, who played his father in Aquaman.

Momoa also has an All Blacks jersey from the 1991 World Cup, which he considers one of his most prized personal possessions.

“It’s one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received. I never leave the house without it. It always travels with me,” he said.

The Hollywood star is in New Zealand for his new Apple TV+ series Chief of War – in which he stars, writes and serves as executive producer.

He recently debuted a new traditional Hawaiian tattoo on his head, which he says has been in the works for 20 years.

The All Blacks prepare for the second Beldisloe Cup Test against the Wallabies at Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday.
