Jason Momoa - Jason Momoa Doesn't Own A Tv

'Conan the Barbarian' star Jason Momoa doesn't own a TV, computer or mobile phone.

The actor - who plays the fictional ancient warrior in a new film adaptation - shuns modern gadgets as he feels they interfere with the simple way he likes to live his life.

Jason - who raises two children, daughter Lola Iolani Momoa, four, and son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, two, with his actress partner Lisa Bonet - told totalflim.com: "A lot of people ask that question, 'Do you like TV?' and we don't actually own a TV. People normally have a cell phone, they have email, they have computers, they have a TV. And I don't have any of them. In these times that's considered barbaric to a civilised world."

While the actor - who has also appeared on TV shows including 'Game of Thrones' and 'Stargate Atlantis' - doesn't care much for seeing himself on the small screen, he does enjoy trips to the cinema, for the experience of watching a movie with other people.

Jason, 32, added: "I guess if I had a home entertainment system that was like a screening room it might be different but I love going to theatres. It's a communal thing and you go there with like-minded people to see something which you love.

"I get my popcorn and my hot tamales and I love when the lights go down and I watch the previews. To me that's my tradition, that's my childhood. That's when I escaped and went into different worlds."
