Jason Momoa admits his wife Lisa Bonet was his 'childhood crush' during utterly charming interview with Esquire

Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have been couple goals since they started dating in 2005.

But it seems like the Aquaman's star had his eyes set on the beautiful actress years before they ever even got together.

The Hawaii native, 40,  wasn't shy about admitting that his stunning 51-year-old partner was 'literally [his] childhood crush' while sitting down with Esquire for their November issue, which hits newsstands October 22.

Still, he tried to play it cool until much, much later in their relationship.

'I mean, I didn't tell her that. I didn't let her know I was a stalker until after we had the kids.'

The couple met at a jazz club in LA and were instantly smitten. They went on to have two kids and were wed in 2017.

Jason made it clear that Lisa was the leader of the pack, telling the magazine: 'Mama is the boss—everyone knows that' while entertaining the possibility of adopting a dog he met while on the set of his new Apple+ show See.

In the interview Jason also touched on the other love of his life - acting.

And while he said he instantly 'fell in love with the art of acting' after starting his career with Baywatch Hawaii, Momoa revealed that 'no one took [him] seriously' at the start.

Being perfectly honest, he told interviewer Rachel Syme: 'Baywatch isn't known for its . . . quality of acting. I couldn't get an agent to save my life.'

But he soldiered on, eventually moving to California where he got a gig as a bouncer before landing a role on a Lifetime movie.

For Jason, that was a lesson in persistence. 

'If someone says something isn't possible, I'm like, "Listen here, I married Lisa Bonet. Anything is f**king possible."'

Now the star is leading multi-million dollar box office juggernauts like Aquaman, which grossed $1.148billion internationally upon its release in 2018.

Jason is set for Atlantis once again for the DC Comic film's sequel, which is set for release December 16 202.

Aim high: talking about how the possibilities are endless, he said: 'If someone says something isn't possible, I'm like, "Listen here, I married Lisa Bonet. Anything is f**king possible'
