The ‘real’ hetero of Hollywood
Kevin Hart refuses to play gay characters.
The straight actor insists he has no “disrespect” towards gay people but admits he is too “insecure” to portray someone in a same-sex relationship on screen.
He said: “I can’t. Not because I have any ill will or disrespect. It’s because I don’t think I’m really going to dive into that role 100 percent because of insecurities about myself trying to play that part. Does that make sense?”
However, the 35-year-old went on to stress he has no problem with the gay community.
He said on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club: “As people, I love you.”
Kevin also admitted he turned down the role of Alpa Chino in Tropic Thunder, with the part going to Brandon T Jackson: “The dude, he was doing a lot of stuff in the draft that I read. It was real flagrant… I was like: ‘I can’t do this.’” - BANG Showbiz
