'Aquaman' Actor Jason Momoa Is Punishing Us For Killing The Environment

He shared some strong words while shaving his beloved beard

This isn't what I had in mind when I secretly wished Jason Momoa would teach me a lesson. The actor just posted a video of himself on YouTube doing the unthinkable: shaving his beard. I winced just typing those words, but it's true. In an attempt to raise awareness about the negative impact of plastics on the environment, Momoa found the perfect way to elicit a visceral reaction from all of us.

Standing in a desolate landscape, he used clippers to get rid of his beloved mane. He then threw the chunks of hair in the air, bidding adieu to the characters he's played that were defined by it. "Goodbye Drogo," he said in reference to his old Game of Thrones character. "Goodbye Arthur Curry." (That's Aquaman's real name.) "Goodbye Declan," he said to his character on Netflix's Frontier.

Momoa really hit us where it hurt, but at least he came with solutions. "There's only one thing that can really help our planet and save our planet as long as we recycle—and that's aluminum." I don't know about you, but I'm going for cans whenever I can because I'm nervous that Momoa may go after the hair on his head next. Then I'll have nothing.

HBO dropped the ball on this one

Game of Thrones may have snagged a record number of Emmy nominations, but it's not all thanks to HBO putting its stars up for the awards. Instead, Gwendoline Christie—aka Ser Brienne of Tarth—submitted her own name for consideration via her agent after HBO failed to do so on her behalf. And, naturally, the Emmys recognized her incredible performance and nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series along fellow GoT castmates Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, and Lena Headey. Be your own biggest fan, and it might just end up paying off!

My interest level has peaked with this new clip

I'm not a Taylor Swift fan, and that's putting it nicely. So all of the fuss about the new Cats movie that she's starring in has been intentionally off of my radar.

It's pricey, but hear us out

Co-captain of US women's national soccer team and queen of fire hair looks Megan Rapinoe has to keep up with that purple mane just like the rest of us colored-hair folk. Maintaining hair that vivid can be difficult, to say the least, but not impossible—especially when you have a good colorist. Unsurprisingly, Rapinoe's is one of the best. According to a press release, expert colorist and balayage specialist Richard Drews keeps Rapinoe's hair cool-toned and vibrant using Kérastase Blond Absolu Masque Ultra-Violet which is like your favorite purple shampoo times 10.
