    Hart was driving a souped-up version of a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, a classic two-door muscle car, when the car crashed through a fence on Malibu Hills' Mulholland Highway, Hart was reportedly trapped under the crushed roof of the vehicle, according to TMZ. If the vehicle was equipped with a roll cage, the roof likely wouldn't have been crushed in such a manner, and Hart would've been better held in place by a five-point harness. TMZ reached out to Speedkore, but the company had no comment.

    So she sits me down. We have a nice conversation. She tells me, “Oh, the sketches are great.” I go, “Oh, fantastic. Well, then… well, then, why am I here?” She said, “Because, David, there’s no way… that you can ever say the word… “f*ggot” on our network. I didn’t know I did anything wrong. I didn’t try to defend myself. I said, “All right. F*** it, I’ll take it out. Have a good afternoon.” And as I was leaving, it occurred to me. “Hey. Hey, Renée, quick question. It’s just a question. Seriously, I wanna know. Like, wh-why is...

    Comedian Kevin Hart and his driver suffered "major back injuries" in a car crash in the Malibu Hills late Saturday night, a report said. Police sources told TMZ a Plymouth Barracuda belonging to Hart, 40, veered off the road on the Mulholland Highway. The vehicle turned up in a ditch about 10 feet off the side of the winding road after it smashed through a wooden fence. Hart was not driving at the time and his driver was not drinking, the report said. The roof of the Barracuda was almost completely crushed in the crash.

    Kevin Hart bought himself a birthday present fitting of a movie star. A movie car. The actor/comedian picked up a famous custom 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda to celebrate turning 40 on July 6. The blue hardtop was built by Speedkore Performance Group and appeared in “The Fate of the Furious” with several of the company’s other creations. The two-door has been heavily modified with “shaved” styling, carbon fiber body parts, a modern supercharged 6.4-liter Hemi V8 tuned to produce 720 hp, a lowered suspension, high performance wheels with foot-wide rear tires and a fully updated interior. It’s nicknamed “Menace” and was...

    "We've gotten better at talking about inclusion. Now we intentionally start conversations, and when it's Pride Month or Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we celebrate." — Kevin Hart, founder of the West Florida LGBTA Teammate Network If rainbows and vibrant parades come to mind when you think of Pride Month, you're not alone, but if you research the history, you'll see it's more than a colorful party. "Pride Month is really about Stonewall," said Kevin Hart, founder of the West Florida LGBTA Teammate Network.

    The [Duke] Chronicle ^ | 01/16/2019 | Nathan Heffernan
    In the past few years, anti-politically correct (PC) movements have grown in popularity and vigor. Groups of young college conservatives have criticized the liberal hold on universities and conservative activists have mocked censorship and “sensitivity” among young millennials. The sentiment that “people get offended by anything these days” seems to be growing among the larger population. Scandals of comedians getting booted from gigs for racially insensitive remarks or being fired from hosting an awards ceremony due to old homophobic tweets have sparked discussion over whether PC culture has gone too far. Even at Duke, students and professors complain about the...

    Bryan Cranston defended playing a quadriplegic in his upcoming movie “The Upside,” saying taking on the role was a “business decision” amid the growing debate about expanding casting in Hollywood. Cranston told the Press Association that he’s aware of “the need to expand opportunities” to others when it comes to casting specific roles, but as an actor, he has the right to take on characters with different attributes and abilities. In “The Upside,” Cranston plays a wealthy quadriplegic who hires a caretaker, played by Kevin Hart, to help him on his daily routine. "We live in the world of criticism,...

    If you had told me as recently as a month ago that I'd ever be backing up Kevin Hart, I would've thought you were crazy. I've endured several of his movies because of social obligations, and the only one I really liked was Jumanji, mostly because it was an ensemble comedy and contained a smaller percentage of Kevin Hart than usual. He's one of the reasons I'm eternally grateful for the Mute button. I don't begrudge the man his success, but so far I've been content with aiding his career by staying out of the way. Not everybody is so...

    With the 2019 Golden Globe Awards now upon us, only one thing is for sure: Not a lot of people are going to watch. Ratings for the event last year fell 5 percent from their 2017 numbers and have fallen three out of the last four years. Oscars and Emmys? Even worse, with the 2018 shows declining 20 percent and 10 percent respectively from their 2017 ratings numbers. Reversing this moribund picture calls for more than just tinkering along the edges. How can the creative class convince millions of Americans who have tuned out to give them a second chance?...

    In a somewhat surprising turn of events, The Ellen DeGeneres Show will serve as the first stop on the Great Kevin Hart Redemption Tour of 2019. The actor — who stepped down as host of the Academy Awards last month after refusing to apologize for homophobic remarks from his past — will appear on Ellen DeGeneres‘ talk show on Friday for what she calls an “incredible and honest conversation.” DeGeneres broke the news herself Thursday night, tweeting, “I had an incredible and honest conversation with @KevinHart4real about hosting the #Oscars. It was supposed to air on Monday. I don’t want...

    LEXINGTON, Va. -- Mark Rush could not name the last movie in the past 10 years that gave him a belly laugh -- or made him snort or chuckle or laugh out loud, at least for any extended period of time. "The last side-splitting movies I saw were 'Caddyshack' or 'Blazing Saddles,'" the politics and law professor at Washington and Lee College said. "That was way too long ago." Rush and I were talking over dinner at the Red Hen, a farm-to-table restaurant that made headlines earlier this year for its unfortunate decision to refuse service to White House spokeswoman...

    Liberals are now suffering under the heel of the monster they created to attack the rest of us just trying to mind our own business, and it’s a beautiful thing. But it’s also really sad and a sign that things will get much worse for all of us before they get any better. Most people don’t care about the Oscars. As the ratings have shown, fewer and fewer people each year watch them. This is due, in part, to the fact that the Oscars hold so many of us in contempt – political lectures and condescension are more common in...

    Kevin Hart is out as the host of the 2019 Oscars just a few days after he was in. That’s how it goes, these days. The internet giveth and the internet taketh away. Hart - an accomplished, veteran comedian - was forced to step down after refusing to apologize for “homophobic” tweets from some seven years ago. The celebrity class is largely silent. Everyone knows they’re on record saying something that their own outrage mobs would find untenable. No one wants to get caught in the tempest of their own making. But Hart’s displacement isn’t just about being forced to...

    Torrei Hart wanted to give the son she has with Kevin Hart some real life experience with firearms away from the television, so she took him to the gun range to squeeze off a few rounds. 10-year-old Hendrix went with his mom Monday afternoon to an L.A. gun range and practiced his pistol shooting. Torrei showed Hendrix all the safety precautions, including proper eye, ear protection and safe loading techniques. Torrei’s rep tells The Blast “We always go on mommy son dates and today I took him to the gun range. His favorite game is “Call of Duty” so I...

    Before Sony Pictures chair Amy Pascal attended a breakfast of Hollywood bigwigs last November with Barack Obama, she emailed her friend Scott Rudin for suggestions on what she should ask the president. In what has become the latest embarrassing email uncovered in a trove of messages leaked by hackers who attacked Sony, Pascal wrote Rudin: “What should I ask the president at this stupid Jeffrey breakfast?” She was referring to a breakfast hosted by DreamWorks Animation head and major Democratic donor Jeffrey Katzenberg. Rudin, a top film producer responsible for films like No Country for Old Men and Moneyball, responded,...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Just two days after being named host of the Academy Awards, Kevin Hart stepped down following an outcry over past homophobic tweets by the comedian. Capping a swift and dramatic fallout, Hart wrote on Twitter just after midnight Friday that he was withdrawing as Oscars host because he didn’t want to be a distraction. “I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past,” wrote Hart. Hart stepped aside just about an hour after refusing to apologize for tweets that resurfaced after he was announced as Oscars host on Tuesday. In a...

    In a record for diversity at the annual Golden Globes Awards, four of the 10 nominees in the two Best Picture categories this year have non-white directors. Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman,” Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther,” Barry Jenkins’ “If Beale Street Could Talk” all were recognized in the Best Picture-Drama category, while John M. Chu’s “Crazy Rich Asians” made the cut in the Best Picture – Comedy or Drama competition. Of these, only Lee received a nomination for Best Director, where he was joined by the Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón for “Roma” — which as a foreign-language film was not eligible in...
