Twitter Dubs Jason Momoa and Helen Mirren the Perfect Pair After Oscars 2019 Presenting Gig
Oscars viewers flocked to social media to fawn over a potentially perfect silver-screen pairing: co-presenters Helen Mirren and Jason Momoa
Listen up, casting directors: Twitter has a suggestion that could be box-office gold.
“Jason and I didn’t coordinate our outfits tonight,” joked Mirren, 73, while onstage. “This is purely accidental. But, you know, it just goes to show, doesn’t it, that these days, a Hawaiian god and a very mature English woman can actually wear the same color. We can both wear pink!”
“Finally, times are changing,” chimed in Momoa, 39.
Several Twitter users took note of the pair’s chemistry, both in its potential for onscreen romance and friendship. One quipped, “100% will watch a romcom with Helen Mirren & Jason Momoa.”
Another opined, “I want a Jason Momoa/Helen Mirren buddy cop movie,” while a third went as far as to imagine what it would be like for the duo to fight villainy together: “I DEMAND A HELEN MIRREN & JASON MOMOA SUPERHERO TEAM-UP MOVIE NOW!!!”
Momoa and Mirren seemed just as honored to be in one another’s presence during the big show. On Instagram, the Aquaman star shared a goofy selfie with his co-presenter, captioning the post, “OSCARS. Cheeehuuuuuu aloha j. Helen love u.”
Mirren couldn’t resist fawning over her hunky companion in her own post, writing alongside another selfie, “Backstage oh Lord lucky me.”
