Magazine CovHER: Kevin Hart For Essence
Actor and comedian Kevin Hart is the cover beau for Essence magazine June 2017 issue. Kevin, who just announced that he and his wife are expecting, dishes on hustling hard and staying true to himself.
Peep excerpts from his Essence magazine interview below:
On what a typical day is like when he’s not filming:
“If I’m not in production, if I’m not filming then I’m in my office,” he says. “If I’m not doing that, we’re touring. If I’m not touring, I’m working on stand-up for the next tour. It’s just kind of non-stop for me. But I’m systematic. I believe in a schedule; I believe in a routine. I think the more you stay true to your routine, the more you’ll see results.”
On how life’s lessons have made him a better dad and husband:
“My biggest disappointment when I was a kid was when Dad said, ‘We’re going to such and such,’ and I remember just being in that window and he never showed up that day,” he recalled of his once-drug addicted father. “You know, your heart was set on going out with Dad and then you end up not doing anything. Those moments of expectation where you end up being let down as a kid were very tough for me. That’s why I think today I am so adamant about doing what I say with my two kids.”
Kevin has also penned a memoir I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons where he dishes on his life’s lessons so be sure to pick up a copy.
