“I’m getting old,” the actor responded when asked about the rumors by host Ellen DeGeneres.

“I messed up my eyes,” Momoa admitted. “I just got something in it that kinda cut it up, and then I’ve gotta get surgery, I have a hernia, I’ve got ribs out. I’m just getting beat up.”

“It’s gonna be a great movie, you’re gonna love it,” he added to reassure the audience.

“I got knocked out,” the actor explained at the time (via Yahoo! News). “A stunt guy hit me. He blindsided me. We didn’t make eye contact, and he hit me before I could grab for him, and everything went black.”

DeGeneres commented on how physically taxing Momoa’s acting job seems to be.

“That’s a rough job you got there,” DeGeneres said. “Every movie you’re on, you’re hurting yourself.” 

“I just kind of give it, yeah,” Momoa replied. “I love my job and I get a little too excited, then the age thing, you know, I’m an aging superhero right now.”
