‘Walking Tall With Kevin Hart’ The Funnest Man In Hollywood Gives GQ A Inside Look At His Rise
Also gracing the May issue along side singer Jhene Aiko is Hollywood’s biggest little man. The 35-year-old self proclaimed ‘Comedic Rock Star’ has come a long way from his early comedic days and learned a lot in the process.
Hart talked to GQ keeping his circle tight, watching his career full circle, plans to launch an online site, Childhood, his ex-wife reality star Torrei Hart and more.
Check out the highlights below.
On his initially struggle with writing jokes:
I didn’t know how to write a joke. I just had thoughts: the pervert guy on the bus who wants to grind on people. Or: black people who get Chinese tattoos and don’t know what they say, walking around with salt/pepper/ketchup on their arms.
On his career coming full circle:
I’m a firm believer that when your time is supposed to come, it’s going to come…I’ve been meeting the same people at all these studios, all the television networks—the same presidents, the same show runners, the same network execs—for damn near ten years. And now, it all comes full circle.
On keeping his circle tight:
That’s why it’s so hard to infiltrate my system now, because I know that what I have around me is really genuine.
On his core audience:
You make yourself broad. You make yourself appealing. ‘Hey, y’all, I’m cool with everybody.’ That’s my message.
