According to stepdaughter Zoë Kravitz, Jason Momoa's much-touted move to the Golden Globes was an act of chivalry.
Although Momoa walked the red carpet in a green velvet blazer at the ceremony on January 5, at some point he took off his coat and spent much of the ceremony in a black tank top.
When Kravitz appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Monday, he explained that her stepfather's gesture was not meant to be a social media thirst trap.
"He did the same thing at our wedding where he had a tank top under his jacket," said Kravitz, who had made a covenant with his actor colleague Karl Glusman last year. "But as you can see in the photo, my mother [Lisa Bonet] was cold, which is why he took off his jacket. I think that's really cute. "
Next month, Kravitz will continue her acclaimed appearance on HBO's "Big Little Lies" with a starring role in the Hulu series "High Fidelity," a gender-specific version of Nick Hornby's 1995 book of the same name.
She was also encouraged to play Catwoman with Robert Pattinson on "The Batman," which is set to be released in London this week and is slated for release in 2021.
Preparing for the role was a "very exciting" if physically daunting process, said Kravitz.
"I trained a lot, which was great and tough," she said to DeGeneres. "I come home limping every day. It is actually pathetic. "
