The Kevin Hart reign seems to keep growing and growing and in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hart talks about being happy, the Sony whore comment and the comedians he admires. Hart says he wants to equal his heroes (Bill Cosby, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock) and dwarf them by building an empire even larger than theirs.
Hart was asked if he would take Cosby’s portrait down from the wall of his home, with the recent accusations surrounding Bill Cosby, Hart said he won’t and that he admires Bill Cosby.
“The picture serves a purpose for me,” he explains. “These were the men who built a legacy doing what they love to do, which is telling jokes.”
“Right now, it’s a lot of speculation,” he says about all the recent accusations. “All I can do is just say my prayers, and my wishes go out to all of the women who are potentially involved. His personal life has nothing to do with me. I can’t control it. I will never try. It doesn’t stop me from being an admirer of his work. His work and his personal life are two separate things.”
