I literally turned around and I see her and she goes, ‘I’m Lisa.’ I turned around to my friend and I [pretends to scream]. I had fireworks going off inside, man. I convinced her to take me home, because I was living in a hotel” said Momoa. They made a quick stop at a small café in between where they indulged in a few drinks and deep conversations.
