Actor Jason Momoa has been named as the most handsome face of 2018, beating off rivals such as Armie Hammer, Shawn Mendes and Idris Elba.

The Aquaman star topped the list put out by TC Candler each year naming their male face of the year.

The female version had French model Thylane Blondeau named most beautiful face 2018.

It has been a good year for Momoa, with Aquaman proving to be a box office hit - largely due to the star's popularity with women.

Audience survey service PostTrak found the demographic most in love with Aquaman is women aged over 25, and that females made up 52 percent of the film's audience, reports Uproxx.

"Moms turned out in greater numbers than dads, 56 percent to 44 percent, and enjoyed Aquaman more, 91 percent to 85 percent. Women also graded Aquaman with an A- CinemaScore, a number that was equal to men," reports Deadline.

Last week Momoa told Newshub's Kate Rodger he was a big fan of New Zealand.

"When I was a baby I saw pictures of New Zealand," he said.

"I've been just pulled there and the moment I set foot there it was the only place on earth I've felt that this is exactly where I'm from - not even Hawaii has done that for me.

"I'm so connected to Aotearoa, on a higher level. I know I'm from there."
