In the April issue of Ebony, Kevin Hart dished on his family life, romance, his thoughts and why he never tells gay jokes, and why he’s always making fun of the government.
Being serious around family members and his lady:
“Regardless of how much I joke and play around, my family and my lady don’t respect that about me. I’m serious, because I’m responsible for their well-being. I take that very serious. When it comes time to get naked, I’m serious there, too.”
On relationships and lying:
When I was married, I definitely went through a lying period. I just turned into a liar, but you learn from your mistakes. Being that guy once upon a time has helped me develop into the man I am now, and I approach relationships in a completely different manner.”
On why he doesn’t crack gay jokes:
“The repercussions for saying certain words are harsh, and careers have been shut down. I can understand how people could be affected by certain words and slurs. I get it. My way of showing respect is to not play around with it, not mention it, not joke with it at all. I understand how serious it is.”
On how he feels about making fun of the government:
“I’m afraid of the government. I watched Enemy of the State. That movie scared the s–t out of me. I keep my mouth shut.”
As if the new host of SNL doesn’t give us a cramp in our side laughing at his jokes, the funny little man took it ALL OFF for his new “Let Me Explain” promo which hits theaters July 4th.
