Kevin Hart has yet another hit on his hands, folks! The Wedding Ringer debuted at #2 at the weekend box office, making a little over $20,000,000 in its opening weekend (a far second, as folks in middle America went in droves to help American Sniper rake in more than $100 million in its opening weekend). While promoting the movie on The Breakfast Club late last week, Hart was asked if he would ever play a homosexual character on the big screen. Surprisingly, he said no, because according to the comedian, it’s not something he’s comfortable with. It all started when Charlamagne asked Hart if there is one role he regrets turning down (start the video at the 32:30 mark):
Kevin Hart: “One role I regret is Tropic Thunder. Brandon T. Jackson, he got the part. But in my defense…first of all, before I say this, I’m politically correct. To the gay community, I respect and appreciate any and everything that you all do. And as people, I love you. The part was way…”
Angela Yee: “Gayer?”
Hart: “Yeah, in the beginning. The dude was doing a lot of stuff in the draft that I read. He was like ‘Yo, c’mon man, let me…let me…”
Yee: “Suck your…”
Hart: “Yeah, it was a lot of…it was real flagrant. It was a lot of stuff and I was like, ‘I can’t do this.'”
Yee: “But could you play a gay role?”
Hart: “No. Not because I have any ill will or disrespect. It’s because I feel like I can’t do that because I don’t think I’m really going to dive into that role 100 percent because of the insecurities about myself trying to play that part. Does that make sense? Like, what I think people are going to think while I’m trying to do this is going to stop me from playing that part the way that I’m supposed to. I’m not at that acting point in my career. Several years later when I’ve done this part and you say, ‘Hey Kevin, I thought you said you would never do it.’ ‘I’m at a point where I want to take a chance. This role made sense, this story made sense.’ I may do it. Everybody got on me about the dress on SNL. ‘Yo, you said you would never do it!’ Thought I wouldn’t. They presented the sketch, I thought it was funny. I was like ‘Yo, I kind of look like the little girl, that would be funny!”
In the end, Hart says that he might find THE role, possibly playing a gay character, and take it on because it could be just the right move for his career at that time. But at this moment, playing a homosexual on-screen is “not on the drawing board” as of right now…
However, Hart has played a gay character in the past, even if it wasn’t a serious character. In Scary Movie 4, he and Anthony Anderson reenacted (in a comical manner of course) a scene out of Brokeback Mountain. They got a little too close in a tent and sang Lionel Richie’s “Hello” before hinting to the audience that they had sex. Throwback moment:
Kevin Hart has absolutely NO intentions of slowing down.
The comedian/rockstar hosted Saturday Night Live for the second time last night. The first time Hart performed on SNL was in 2013. Kevin had the honor of hosting the first episode of 2015 for the show.
During his hosting gig, Kevin performed several skits and kept the audience laughing. Some of our favorite skits include “Why’d You Post that?”, “Listening Party” and “Bushwick, Brooklyn 2015.” Take a peek at the different skits and tell us your favorite!
Kevin Hart is truly one of our favorite comedians of the 2010s.

Why’d You Post That?
When it comes to some of Hollywood’s cutest celebrities, size doesn’t always matter. At least when it comes to their height. And while tall, dark and handsome seems like a package deal, we have a number of wonderfully suave, easy-on-the-eyes celebs who haven’t let a shorter stature impact their standing with the ladies.
According to Kevin Hart, the tension that once lingered between his ex-wife, Torrei Hart, and his fiancée, Eniko Parrish, is a thing of the past. During a recent chat with The Breakfast Club, the comedian expressed that Torrei and Eniko are doing a lot better and it’s all because Torrei extended the olive branch.
“I actually, recently called Torrei and gave Torrei the biggest compliment ever because Torrei reached out after the New Year and just said, ‘I want our relationship to be better.’ I thought that was dope on Torrei’s side.”
According to The Wedding Ringer actor, the issue was not that they couldn’t get along, but that they never communicated.
“It’s not that they never got along, they just don’t talk. Just don’t talk at all. Like at all, literally. They’ve never been ignorant towards each other, they just don’t talk. And I get it, but I was like it’s stupid. But as the guy in the middle of the situation, I don’t say nothing. I act as if everything is cool. Now that they’ve been talking and communicating, I think it’s great. It’s great. In my kids’ eyes, Eniko and Torrei get along. Where they are now is dope. Whatever my kids see is elevated now.”
Don’t expect to see the “Atlanta Exes” star at Kev and Neeki’s wedding or anything, but the father of two says that she’s definitely free to attend if she’d like.
“I know Torrei ain’t gonna come to no wedding. If she wanted to, she could.”
As for how he currently feels about Torrei, Kevin says he has nothing but love for his ex-wife.
“To my ex-wife, let me tell you something about my ex-wife. I don’t care what my ex-wife does or has said or has done. That’s the mother of my kids. I respect her. You’ve never heard me disrespect my wife, any way, shape or form. I respect her. I treat her the way I’m supposed to. I don’t care if we fight today, fight tomorrow, the mother of my kids is always going to be on a pedestal. All of the people in the media, I talk to this woman every day. Not because I have to, but because I want to. That’s the mother of my kids. We go at it sometimes, I’m not going to lie to you, but she’s the mother of my kids.”
Oh yeah, he insists that he didn’t plan to propose to Eniko on the night of Torrei’s reality show premiere, things just sort of happened that way.
“A complete accident. Listen to me and I’m glad you brought this up. That was 110% accident. I had no idea. Listen, it was Eniko’s 30th birthday. Everything I do is planned. That night was planned. When I did it, after the surprise party. We sat down and ate dinner and then I propose. Everybody pulled out cameras, taking pictures and everybody was posting it. It was a freak of nature.”
It’s refreshing to hear that these three have decided to put the foolishness behind them.
Kevin Hart proposed to his girlfriend of five years, Eniko Parrish, last summer and as he’s preparing for the upcoming nuptials, he revealed who will be his best man.
“My son. He’s seven years old and his name is Hendrix,” he told HipHollywood while smiling about his decision to make his son best man
Hart had his son with ex-wife Torrei Hart who is the star of “Atlanta Exes.” It seems as though he can’t wait to have the little guy by his side on his wedding day.
Hart revealed the decision about his seven-year-old son while attending the premiere of his upcoming buddy comedy, “The Wedding Ringer,” where he plays a best man for hire.
As for the marriage-themed red carpet premiere, Hart wasn’t the only star to have some revealing wedding news. Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting opened up about her surprise New Year’s Eve wedding.

Now that 2014 is just about over, the time has come to take a look at films that entertained us throughout the year. Yes there were some slow periods, but that doesn’t take away from the millions of dollars different films racked up at the box office. Here’s a look at the 10 biggest movies of the year.
In this episode of Sony Against The World, TMZ asked actor-comedian Kevin Hart if he would still work for the major entertainment corporation after it was revealed that Sony executives don’t think highly of him.
In a series of leaked emails, executives called Hart a “whore” for requesting to be paid more to promote a new movie on his social media page. Even a Sony producer mocked Hart for being linked to a series of Black movies President Obama would prefer to watch in a racially-insensitive email.
Flashing his mega-watt smile, Hart responded to TMZ reporters noting he doesn’t answer questions about his career but he did conclude by stating “I’m politically correct.” Hart also took the time to promote his upcoming movies The Wedding Ringer and Get Hard with Will Ferrell. As for Sony, they are preparing to take legal action against Twitter for publishing their leaked private content on their social media site.
Check out the clip below by TMZ. Do you think Hart should continue to work for Sony?
Raise your hand if you would see Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell in a movie together? Well ladies and gentlemen, that moment has come.
The official trailer for the Warner Brothers comedy, “Get Hard” co-starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart is finally here! According to Indiewire,
In “Get Hard,” Ferrell plays a rich, effete investment banker named James King, who is sentenced to a maximum security prison for stealing millions of dollars from clients. Thirty days before he begins his sentence, he hires a “streetwise guy” named Darnell (played by Hart), to prep him and toughen him up for the time he’ll do in prison – hence the title of the film.
After watching that hilarious trailer, we will definitely go see the movie. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on March 17th, 2015.
Did you tune in to the first annual PEOPLE Magazine Awards? Looking to highlight notable talent in the entertainment industry, the two-hour NBC special was full of celebrities. Nick Cannon served as host with musical talent Maroon 5, 5 Seconds of Summer and Gwen Stefani performing. Here’s a rundown of the night’s winners.
Last week, several Sony Pictures executives were put on blast after an email exchange of them saying some not-so-nice things about Kevin Hart were leaked to the web. In the emails, Clint Culpepper refers to the comedian as a “whore” for requesting more money to promote one of his films on his social media accounts. The movie studio has since decided to cancel a press junket for the actor’s forthcoming film, The Wedding Ringer, which will be released in theaters January 16.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the junket was supposed to take place on Sunday in Los Angeles, but reporters were recently informed that it would be postponed. A Daily News journalist , who was invited to attend the junket, was informed that the event was pulled in an attempt to keep the “focus on the movie” instead of the recent email hacks.
As previously reported, Kevin responded to the email leak (and Culpepper’s harsh words) with an Instagram message.
“Knowing your self-worth is extremely important people. I worked very hard to get where I am today. I look at myself as a brand and because of that I will never allow myself to be taken advantage of.
I OWN MY BRAND…I MAKE SMART DECISIONS FOR MY BRAND….I PROTECT MY BRAND….which is why I’m able to brush ignorance off of my shoulder and continue to move forward.
I refuse to be broken people…with that being said it’s now time for me to get back to building this empire that I’ve always dreamed of!!!!”
