Kevin Hart may have to change his name to Box Office Killah, given his recent movie success. First there was the #1 box office and big response to Ride Along, his buddy movie with Ice Cube and this Friday, well placed for Valentine’s Day, he and Regina Hall and Michael Ealy star in About Last Night an all-Black remake of the 1986 movie. Hart says his success has freed him, literally.
“I’ve decided not to wear pants or a shirt after 3 p.m.,” he told the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “All of Black History Month, I’m going with no bottom. I’ve got sneaks on with socks that come right to about my lower calf. That’s how I’m rolling around. When my kids come around, I just hold some plates to myself, not to mess them up, and by the time they come home from school, I’m dressed.”
Hart has earned the right to whatever eccentricities he wants after starring in Think Like a Man which earned $90 million at the box office, creating The Real Husbands of Hollywood for BET (and getting Nick Cannon, Bobby Brown, Duane Martin, Robin Thicke and Nelly to star on it) taking Ride Along to #1 and now, starring in About Last Night. That doesn’t even count his standup comedy specials, including Laugh At My Pain and Let Me Explain.
