Actor Jason Momoa may be used to being the tough guy on screen, but a video of him losing an arm-wrestling match to a young boy in Pittsburgh is now going viral.
Momoa spent a day off from his shooting schedule to visit children at the UPMC Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, where he challenged a young boy with a high stake bet.
“Me and Joshua bet that if he beat me in arm wresting he gets to have my trident,” the actor wrote on Instagram. He also added that since Joshua had won, he will get to visit the set of his upcoming film.
In the clip, the boy’s mother is seen asking whose muscles are bigger, and Joshua responds, “mine.”
