Kevin Hart’s Daughter on Her Dad’s Embarrassing Jokes | 60 minutes

This week on 60 Minutes, correspondent Anderson Cooper profiled the comedian, actor and entertainment mogul. Kevin Hart.

While Cooper was in Los Angeles following Hart through his day, he visited the set of an ad campaign for clothing company Fabletics. Hart was shooting the campaign with his daughter, Heaven Hart.

Heaven told 60 Minutes that she bristles at some of her father’s embarrassing jokes about her in his stand-up specials. She said there were even jokes she didn’t know existed until the comedy special aired.

“Why is he blowing up my stuff over there?” she asked Anderson Cooper. “He’s a sneaky little guy.”

Kevin Hart said that as his daughter grew older, she expressed more how she felt when he revealed his private life to the public on stage. Heaven eventually told him to stop the jokes altogether, and Kevin agreed to leave them out of his routine.

“As your child gets older…you have to be a little more aware of what you’re doing based on what they’re feeling, what they like and what they don’t like,” explained l eldest Hart at Cooper.

“So I haven’t spoken about her since because she made a harsh threat to me,” he said.

“I did. I threatened him,” Heaven confirmed with a smile.

Cooper also accompanied Hart for a morning workout with Hart’s personal trainer, Ron “Boss” Everline, and some friends. Cooper said the workout was intense and the thermostat was turned up, turning the room into a “sweat box.”

“Kevin Hart works out every day at 5 a.m. And I had heard that. I had seen it on his Instagram…I’m still skeptical,” Cooper told 60 Minutes Overtime.

“I think Kevin Hart works out every day. He’s in really, really good shape.”

Kevin Hart has enjoyed immense success in the entertainment industry, which shows no signs of slowing down. But he told Cooper that he had faced challenges and difficult times throughout his life, especially in his early years.

Hart grew up in a tough neighborhood in North Philadelphia with his mother, Nancy Hart, and his brother Robert. Her father, Henry Witherspoon, was in and out of her life and was a drug addict. It took Hart a while to break into the entertainment business, and he had to rely on his mother’s financial support as he struggled to find his footing as a comedian.

But Hart told Cooper he appreciates all the hardship he endured because it got him to where he is today.

“I wouldn’t change anything, the good or the bad… it feels like things are supposed to happen and they’re supposed to be perfect. It’s not supposed to be the case,” he said. declared.

“I’m really grateful for every step. Like every step.”
