Jason Momoa Is 'Waiting to Get Some Free' Cookies After Girl Scout Uses His Photo to Sell Boxes
"He just wants his cut," joked Momoa's wife Lisa Bonet
Hey, Charlotte Holmberg, Jason Momoa wants to cash in on his royalties!
On the Oscars red carpet on Sunday, the Aquaman actor responded to the fifth grade Girl Scout using his shirtless photos to sell boxes of Samoas.
After being asked about the cookies, aptly renamed “Momoas,” the actor told ET, “I love Girl Scout cookies! I was like waiting to get some free ones. I’d love some.”
In a shocking twist, Momoa revealed he’s actually not a fan of his namesake caramel coconut treats but prefers Trefoils instead. “I want the shortbread and then you gotta put those in the freezer and that’s the best way,” he said on the red carpet alongside his wife Lisa Bonet.
ET hosts Nancy O’Dell and Kevin Frazier couldn’t believe Momoa didn’t want his own cookies, but Bonet quickly chimed in with his real motivation: “I think he just wants his cut,” she joked.
“Nah,” Momoa added, “I just want my shortbread cookies!”
Earlier this month, Holmberg, known in her troop as “Cookie CEO” because of her incredible sales last year, rebranded the popular Samoas by printing out and plastering photos of Momoa, 39, on the purple packaging. The boxes, which were actually Holmberg’s mom’s idea, have reportedly been selling like crazy ever since.
“The moms are getting really excited and they’re saying that they need them!” Holmberg told Denver’s 9News last week. “The girls will want to buy some because he’s on the front. And the boys will also wanna buy some because he’s like, he might be like their favorite character.”
