He said on his SiriusXM show Straight From The Hart,
“I was offered a seat on a shuttle to space, and the offer came with wanting to document a celebrity’s experience. They said they wanted to document my experience from start to finish and have me complete it. It was like 30, 45 days of spending time with a team, and then you’re looking at a 60- to 90-minute trip.”
“I said, ‘I would love to know the record of space shuttles that made it versus the ones that didn’t. What’s the record of success versus non-success?’ And that’s my reason. That number is too close. It’s not a crazy upside-down number one way or the other. It’s too f—— close, and that’s that for me.”
The father of four added that he could be open to it when he’s in another stage of his life.
“Now, if I’m on the other side of life — if I’m 60, 65 — my kids are a certain age, I’ve seen all the flowers blossom, and I’d have lived life, [then] that’s something that you punctuate it with. At this point, when you’ve got these little ones — nah, I can’t f— around with space at this point.”
Kevin Hart is father to daughter Heaven, 16, son Hendrix, 13, son Kenzo, 3, and daughter Kaori, 9 months.
