Published: Saturday 17th Jan 2015 by David


After donating 500 state of the art computers to underprivileged teens in the Philadelphia area last year, this year has seen the actor Kevin Hart explain why he walked away from a part he was offered in the movie ‘Tropic Thunder.’

Speaking to hit radio show ‘The Breakfast Club‘, the philanthropic performer revealed that he turned down the chance to play a character in the project because of how “gay” he came across in its original script.

Kevin’s story below…

    I have never seen any movie he was in. Is this guy any good? Just asking.
    My guess is that not having him in your movie is no big loss, is it? 🙂

    …..but Scary Movie.

      I was just thinking that, didn’t he play a gay character. Some guys are just too insecure or their agents are scared that rumors might start if they take too many gay roles. It’s stupid.

        If you heard the interview, you’d know that he admitted that. Which is very noble. Not everyone has to or wants to do everything and nothing is wrong with that.

    That’s a fair opinion and also a testament to his acting chops. If you’re only comfortable playing the same role, yourself, you’re not here for the ‘craft’. And that’s cool cuz I’m sure his bank account is fine. But let’s not pretend that if a movie were lucky enough to have him, he wouldnt have ANY say in the script. He could’ve changed some s*** if he wanted the role. I’d guess they wouldn’t pay him enough ON TOP of the gay thing.

    Who cares about his overrated ass. And he’s not that funny anyway.

    He does not have to play gay man, just like many women don’t go nude in movies.

  6. Sigh.. January 17, 2015

    I cringe when I meet or come across people who find him funny,what you laugh at depicts your intelligence and this guys humor is basic.I live for Daniel Tosh!!!

    • OMG Logic!!! January 17, 2015

      Daniel Tosh is funny on TV. His stand up leaves a lot to be desired.

    • Toohotfortv January 17, 2015

      I was here with everything you said until you uttered, Daniel Tosh. Honestly, I’m hoping you’re flexing some kind of comedic tool; irony, sarcasm… Daniel Tosh is a misogynistic tool.

    Nicki doesn’t even find him funny.

  8. MariahIsMusic1 January 17, 2015

    He needs to stfu he’s ugly ass.

  9. Jamie January 17, 2015

    I mean what did he say wrong? That was the most honest and respectful answer. I would still drop my drawers at his request.

  10. Paulo January 17, 2015

    Real actors would be excited at the chance to play a role that’s so different from their real character. Oh well. Another reason to not support this unfunny dude.

  11. Jay Jay January 17, 2015

    He plays the same character in every me starred in. Maybe if he actually plays a “gay man” at least I can take his acting career more seriously

  12. Biting Truth January 17, 2015

    He said nothing wrong. Look at all these petty queens mad because he’s not pretending to be a staunch ally of your mentally ill, sexually depraved and over coddled community.

    • HonestTruth January 17, 2015

      You’re a b**** for that.

  13. Jay January 17, 2015

    Playing a gay character just shows your versatility and shows that you’re not afraid, as an ACTOR, to step out of comfort zone & do something different. It’s ACTING. I’d be damned if I’d turn down money because of how “gay” the character I’m portraying comes across. He’s not funny anyway, not to me.

  14. Rocnar January 17, 2015

    Every actor has the right to pick and choose their roles, based on whatever their reasoning is. If an actor doesn’t want to play a gay character, then so be it. That’s like saying everyone should be willing to work at Burger King, because hey it’s money. Step out of your comfort zone and serve them burgers! Stop acting like it’s some kind of MUST that everyone be a-ok with every aspect of gay to the point where they welcome it into their lives. Y’all getting kind of uppity and presumptuous.

    That’s probably why I like Tracy Morgan more.
