Kevin Hart

Kevin Hart has snagged the August 2015 cover of Rolling Stone. The 36-year-old comedic rock star dishes on his business (outside of comedy), racism and why he pays very little attention to reviews.

How he feels about Eddie Murphy:

He was my generation’s, like, ‘Holy shit, this guy is unbelievable’ — people fall at his feet, everything he says is golden.

Who he competes with:

At this point, I’m competing against Kevin Hart.

Why Kevin’s company Hartbeat Digital charges studios extra for his tweets or Instagrams about movies he’s in:

Studios will do ad buys to promote films — with my numbers on social media, why wouldn’t they pay me, too?

Doing spontaneous runs in cities like Atlanta:

People think these runs are just for fun. My number-one priority is: People are dying. They need to get off the couch. Fitness is real. Aunt A and Uncle C are dying. We gotta get people to understand that.

How he got started in comedy:

I went to community college for, like, a week and a half, but then I fell in love with the whole comedy thing, and I told my mom, ‘This is what I’m going to do, I really have a passion for this.’
