If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, then you most definitely noticed Khal Drogo’s intense eyebrow scar. (And if you’re not a Game of Thrones fan, who are you and what are you doing with your life?)

Here he is without the scar (but still looking very hot, of course):

Well, we’ve got news for you. That scar was no artistic choice made by the makeup department. Jason Momoa himself has had that scar for about eight years now, and how he got it is pretty ~intense~.

About 8 years ago, Momoa was reportedly in a bar and got hit in the eye with a pint glass, which shattered.

It took 140 stitches to fix, and he was left with that scar.

About the incident, he told the NY Post that he was almost glad it happened, because it changed his “pretty boy” image, which he’d been stuck with since he was a teenage model.

And apparently, this wasn’t the first time Momoa’s face took a beating.

According to, there was also an incident in which Momoa suggested to a friend that his Conan the Barbarian character would look more authentic with a broken nose. Almost immediately, Momoa’s friend punched him in the face, effectively breaking his nose.

Now that’s some dedication to your character, bro. But sorry Jason Momoa, but we’re pretty sure that no matter what happens to your face, we will always find you sexy AF.
