Exclusive: Kevin Hart Opens Up About Recent DUI: “It’s My Stupidity I’m Learning From”

After being charged with two counts of DUI, and sentenced to three years probation, Kevin Hart is taking his mistake and turning it into a positive.

During the 13th Annual Harold & Carole Pump Foundation Gala, HipHollywood caught up with Hart who responded to the recent incident. “It’s no joke. Drinking and driving isn’t something that should be played with,” the comedian shared.

“I’m glad that I got to learn my lesson in a way where no one was harmed, there were no casualties. It’s pretty much my stupidity that I’m learning from. And I think now knowing that, I know not to not only do it again, but I can be a voice to tell others,” Hart explained.

“I’m in a place where people do listen to me and I have a voice that can be heard. So I use it for positive things, and this right now can actually act as one of those things,” he said.

“One thing I do is definitely learn from my mistakes which is why you haven’t seen, or heard, anything of that sort from me thus far, and you won’t hear it again,” the actor told us.

“I’m a guy who stays out of trouble, so that was my smack on a face for some time. That’s gonna have to last me for the next 10-15 years before you see something bad with me again,” Hart shared.

On April 14th the Let Me Explain actor was spotted driving at nearly 98 mph in a black Mercedes on US 101. The 33-year-old was weaving in and out of traffic and almost ran into a gas truck. He was later sentenced to three years probation and ordered to complete three months of alcohol education classes.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
