Business is booming for Kevin Hart. This year, the comedian and actor has successfully released three movies — The Secret Life of Pets, Central Intelligence, and Ride Along 2 — and he’s not finished. In a new cover story, on his success thus far he says,
I got lucky. Granted, I’m here, and now I’m working my ass off to stay where I’m at, but you can’t foresee this being where it is now. I [tell] my kids, ‘Hey guys, where Daddy is — I went to community college for two weeks! Daddy rolled some dice.
And he’s not finished yet.
I want to be global. I want to be an international star. And I’m gonna work as hard as I can to get there. Tom Cruise, Will Smith — I’m following a blueprint.
I’m not standing out here with the ‘f— you’ attitude. That’s not who I am. I don’t have that in me. I’m standing here with a we-all-can-win attitude, so let’s help each other and let’s get to a place where everybody can succeed. And doors that people were saying were closed, I now have a platform where I can open some — and put actions behind my words without bitching and complaining about what happened before. I’m slow-walking this to reality.
