Q&A With Kevin Hart
With two new movies on deck, the actor and comedian talks to us about work, parenting, and health.
Do you make a point to eat well?
"I'm big on chicken, from baked chicken, to grilled chicken to fried chicken, but I'm not a big proportion guy. I don't overdo it with my meals. I stay active. Whatever I put down, I burn it off."
What are your guilty pleasure foods?
Is there anything about your health that you wish you had known 10 to 15 years ago?
"No, I don't think so. I'm a pretty healthy guy with no problems."
What's your best health habit?
"Not being able to turn down Buffalo wings."
Who makes you laugh?
"Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, the Kings of Comedy, Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld, George Carlin, Steve Martin, the list goes on and on."
What advice would you give someone who wants a career in comedy?
"My advice is simple: You can't be great at something if you're afraid to try. The beauty of standup comedy is that everybody thinks they're funny or wants to be funny, but very few have the balls to get up there and attempt to do it. The few that do can find success, but it takes time. Somewhere, some place on that road, that journey, to success, you're going to find things that keep you going, that keep you motivated, so just try hard."
