Kevin Hart doesn’t be­lieve in fame

Kuwait Times - - WEEKENDER -

The ‘Cen­tral In­tel­li­gence’ star says the pub­lic un­fairly “build” celebri­ties up only to “beat them down” again, like he says they did with Brit­ney Spears when she went through a break­down in 2007. Speak­ing at the Sir­ius XM Town Hall in New York City to pro­mote his new film ‘Kevin Hart: What Now?’, he said: “This s**t ain’t real. It can be snatched from you. Look at how many stars they build up to beat down. “Look at Brit­ney Spears when she was the hottest thing ever. Then Brit­ney went through a melt­down and ev­ery­body is like ‘Well we don’t know about this f***ing chick here.’ Then she got back again and ev­ery­body was like, ‘We love you Brit­ney!’ It was like ‘What?!’ You’re f***ing all over the place, peo­ple.” And the 37-year-old ac­tor and co­me­dian in­sists he will al­ways put his chil­dren Hen­drix, eight, and Heaven, 11 - first when they’re out and about but will be po­lite about de­clin­ing pic­tures or au­to­graphs dur­ing those times. He added: “It’s not like your life changes be­cause of the level of suc­cess that you have. At the end of the day peo­ple are peo­ple. “If you come up to take a pic­ture of me and I’m with my kids, I’m gonna po­litely tell you, ‘Hey man, I ap­pre­ci­ate your sup­port, but I’m on daddy time right now.’ As a per­son you should un­der­stand that.” Mean­while, Kevin has his own fair share of fans who go to ex­treme lengths to prove their de­vo­tion to him, with one tat­too­ing his back with a pic­ture of the ac­tor’s face. He said: “A guy got a tat­too of my face on his lower back. That was weird. I was like, ‘I don’t know what you did that for, sir. I don’t know why it’s there. I don’t re­ally know what I’m sup­posed to do af­ter see­ing that. I guess thank you.’”
