Aquaman reveals why he 'bleeds All Blacks'


//

(CNN) -- Cameras were drawn to the sizable presence of Hollywood actor Jason Momoa as the "Aquaman" star cheered on the New Zealand team at the Vancouver Sevens Sunday.

Sporting an old-school All Blacks jersey, the passionate Momoa watched New Zealand beat Argentina and England on the final day of play to finish fifth, while South Africa defeated France in the showpiece match to earn the Blitzboks their first title of the season.

A Hawaii native, Momoa has previously spoken of his family's Kiwi heritage, revealing in an interview last year that he felt "so connected to Aotearoa [the Maori name for New Zealand] on a higher level."

He later posed for photos with the New Zealand team, which earlier in the tournament suffered a shock first-time defeat by Spain.

Of the All Blacks' 26-19 win over England, he said: "That was so epic, that was an amazing game.

"I'm super happy. I bleed All Blacks. I'm just super happy that the guys pulled it off.

"It's the ultimate sport to me. There are no pads. Growing up in America we didn't have it as much, I played more hockey. But then when I went down and lived in Australia and New Zealand, it [became] my favorite."
