Jason Momoa didn't mean to steal the thunder of the release of the Mueller report.

The "Aquaman" star appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" for the first time recently and she teased him about making big news.

DeGeneres told him that his shaving his beard was "over trending" on the same day when the highly-anticipated report on the investigation into possible Russian interference was released.

"Yeah, sorry about that," Momoa said. "That was an accident."

The former "Game of Thrones" star did it to draw attention to a new line of canned water that he helped launch with the Ball Corporation as an alternative to plastic bottles in support of the environment.

DeGeneres also embarrassed the actor by showing off some shirtless photos of him. That didn't stop him from stripping down a bit to teach the talk show host how to throw an ax.

DeGeneres added some dollar values to the target to help Momoa raise money to aid in his fight to do away with plastic.

Momoa ended up earning $31,000.
