Hart to heart

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - CULTURE -

Kevin Hart is one of the most sought-af­ter co­me­di­ans on the planet right now – the Amer­i­can ac­tor has re­cently starred in block­buster fran­chises Ride Along and Ju­manji, and his cur­rent com­edy world tour has sur­passed one mil­lion ticket sales. In Night School, he plays a bar­be­cue sales­man who goes back to high school to fin­ish his diploma.

Your com­pany Hart­beat Pro­duc­tions has signed a first-look deal with Uni­ver­sal Stu­dios. Why? “Now, to do a movie with me, Hart­beat Pro­duc­tions has to pro­duce it. A lot of peo­ple in the en­ter­tain­ment world haven’t re­ally grasped the con­cept of own­er­ship. When it’s all said and done, if the world ever de­cides to say, ‘We’re done with Kevin Hart,’ my brand and my busi­ness are still go­ing to work.” How long have you known co-star Tif­fany Had­dish? “I knew Tif­fany when Tif­fany was home­less. Tif­fany was liv­ing out of her car and no­body knew. She was try­ing to keep it a se­cret. In my pocket I had $300 and I was like, ‘I don’t know what your sit­u­a­tion is, but hope­fully this can do some­thing for you in this time be­cause I feel like you’re not telling me some­thing. Un­til this day, she’s yet to bring up the money to give it back.” How happy are you to be a fa­ther for the third time? “It’s a boy so it’s a big deal, be­cause the Hart name lives on. At the end of the day, you don’t want this great­ness to stop and by great­ness I’m re­fer­ring to my­self!”
