"My kids are always like, 'Are you gonna die again? You always die,'" he admitted.

The Aquaman lead even joked: "I obviously made a name for myself dying so if you see me it's like, 'Momoa's gonna jump on the bomb, I know it!'"

After a lengthy career full of action movies, Jason revealed that his latest appearance in Dune was what really got to his son, and, recalling watching the sci-fi hit with him, he said: "It was pretty heart wrenching, cause I was like, 'I'm right here buddy!' But he was like, 'Papa nooooooooo.'"
