Aquaman star Jason Momoa has apologized on Instagram for taking photos of the Sistine Chapel by posting a video of him sweating after training and a goal to the waist.
Momoa, 42, is currently in Rome filming Fast X, the 10th part of the Fast and the Furious saga. The actor published his photos under the famous paintings of Michelangelo, which decorate the walls and ceilings of the chapel on May 9. He wrote: “I love you Italy, what a beautiful start to our weekend, enjoying Rome.”
But disgruntled fans were quick to point out in comments that visitors are usually banned from taking photos or videos at the Vatican Museum.
On Saturday, Momoa posted another video examining the dispute – after training.
“This is my last day in Rome and I just love you and Italy,” he said after leaving the dumbbells. “If you thought I didn’t respect your culture, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to.”
He mentioned that he had also visited the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel when he was 19 or 20 years old. “I asked permission for that, I would never want to do something that doesn’t respect someone’s culture. So if I’m wrong, I apologize.” He donated to the monastery.
The video with the apology reached almost 3 million views on Sunday morning.
On the other hand, Jason Momoa has a new wife in his life after breaking up with Lisa Bone, writes “People”.
He met Aiza Gonzalez after the 54-year-old Bonnet announced in January that they were splitting up after nearly 20 years together.
“They meet. He takes care of her. He’s in a great moment of his life, working on Fast X,” says an insider. A source close to Momoa and Gonzalez added: “They are both busy with work, but having fun together. It’s still nothing serious.”
They were spotted together at the premiere of The Ambulance, starring Gonzalez, but did not walk the red carpet together.
