On Monday afternoon, one of Hollywood’s hardest working men received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Kevin Hart recieved the 2,591st star on Hollywood Blvd., and in honor of his humble beginnings as a shoe salesmen in his hometown of Philadelphia, Hart’s star was placed right in front of DSW shoes.
“At the end of the day, it all goes full circle,” said the 36-year-old comedian. “I’m honestly humbled and blessed to be supported, to be loved, and more importantly, to have a fan base that’s so loyal. Today is a day I’ll never forget.”
And some of Hart’s famous friends, including Halle Berry, Tim Story, Will Packer and Ice Cube, came out to support him on his special day. “I came out to find out how Kevin got his star [on Hollywood Blvd.] before me,” joked Ice Cube.
Hart, too, kept the jokes going, telling the audience that no one can pee on his star for at least a month, before getting choked up while thanking his longtime manager Dave Becky.
“I’m standing up here as a successful family man, because of you; you helped me get here, Dave, and I love you,” he said with tears streaming down his face. Hart also thanked his wife Eniko, his ex-wife Torrei Hart, whom he has two children with, and his father and brother were also in attendance.
50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”
Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.
While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!
All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.
And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.
Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
