Jason Momoa teamed up with Carhartt to produce a short film about his feelings for his family and it is a love letter indeed. The eight-minute clip called Canvas of My Life, features narration by the actor as he describes his childhood being raised by an artistic mother, and how that made him the father he is today. He speaks about his kids Lola Iolani and Nakoa-Wolf and also includes Zoë Kravitz (the daughter of his wife, Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz).
When he describes his feelings when he first met Lisa, it touches the heart.
“And then it happened. She came — my muse, the love of my life, my partner in crime. I fell stupid, crazy, madly in love with her. My wife gave me three beautiful, feral kids. My dreams finally came true. I’m a father. I found my place, my home/”
He also talks about how his acting career, which he loves, takes him away from the family that he loves.
“But now my passion for storytelling pulls me away for long periods of time, and that scares me. The nomadic lifestyle that once inspired me, now takes me away from the things I love most. My family.”
He reflects on how he makes the time with his family really count:
“I want to give them my eyes. They will know art. They’ll paint. They’ll sculpt. They’ll understand light and darkness and composition. Find their soul. That’s where the music lies. I teach them to play, because if they can play, they can sing, and if they can sing then they can dance. And when you dance, you celebrate. It is all connected. These lessons will teach them expression of self. And if I build it, then I can teach them hard work, dedication, integrity, a moral code. “Now every time my children play, they can feel that their papa’s always with them.”
