From a distance, Aquaman and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa strikes an intimidating pose. But underneath all the muscles and the mangled mess of long hair, Jason is really just a big teddy bear.

Recently, Jason decided to go the extra distance so that a fan could have her dream photo. His reputation for kindness proceeds him and his adoration for his fans is nothing short of inspiring.

Jason Momoa is one of a kind.

Whether you know him as Khal Drogo from HBO's Game of Thrones or as Arthur Curry in Aquaman, the one thing that's for sure is that Jason has a kingly nature about him.

Not only is he an incredibly talented actor, but Jason is also an outspoken environmental activist.

Over the years, Jason has lent his name to a number of worthy causes. In 2019, he and a group of fellow indigenous Hawaiians protested the construction of a giant telescope atop Mauna Kea — Hawaii's tallest mountain.

When he isn't saving the world (on the big screen and in real life) Jason loves going the extra mile for his fans.

In February of 2022, a Reddit user who goes by the handle baranko posted a photo of themself and Jason hugging it out.

As sweet as the photo undoubtedly is, the story behind it is even more endearing.

"He is hugging me because I couldn't stand on my own," u/baranko's post began. He offered to hold me for the photo so my wheel chair[sic] wouldn't be in the photo."

"I said 'Thanks, but I am kind of heavy...' He said 'That's OK. I am kind of strong.'"

The starry-eyed Reddit user went on to explain just how important this photo is to them. It illustrates how great Jason is to his fans and how kind and thoughtful he is of others.

"So this photo is the day I realized he was a great actor and a great human being," u/baranko's post concluded.

Fellow Reddit users couldn't help but gush over u/baranko's story and were quick to share their own thoughts on the matter.

"I LOVE that he responded I'm kinda strong," Reddit user Specialist-Ebb7606 replied.

"Hell yeah!" u/FunDifficulty83 echoed in agreement. "That was really wholesome!"

Not only was Jason's reply wholesome, but it turns out that his behavior is par for the course, according to Reddit user awwdorkable.

"Can verify — he’s awesome," u/awwdorkable's post said.

Based on what u/awwdorkable claimed in their post, they had the chance to hang out with Jason a few years back while attending a mutual friend's Christmas party. They described Jason as a super-cool grounded dad, who loves spending time with his kids.

During the Christmas party, every time his daughter would wander underneath the mistletoe, Jason would pick her up and kiss her.

"She would scream 'Eeeeeewwwwww! No daaaddd!!' It was adorable."

Not only is Jason a great dad, but he's also a great gift giver.

During a game of White Elephant, Jason unveiled a case of 'Game Of Thrones' wine that had been bottled as an exclusive gift for the cast.

I have to hope that there was at least one bottle of Arbor Gold and perhaps a few Dornish Reds contained in that case.

It's nice to know that no matter how much Jason's celebrity status continues to grow, he'll never be too big for his fans.
