Kevin Hart is trying to take his film career to a new level.
The comedian told HipHollywood that he’s out here doing his own stunts and is coming for Tom Cruise. Yep, you read that right.
Apparently Hart believes he’s going to top the Top Gun when it comes to on-set stunts, telling us he did ALL his own in “Night School,” including that fight scene with Tiffany Haddish.
“There are two people in the industry who do their own stunts: you have Tom Cruise and you have myself,” he explained with a smirk. “In scenes like this with Tiffany, she was nervous because she was like, ‘I don’t want to hurt him,’ and I was like, ‘Tiffany, I do my own stunts so when you do these scenes don’t worry about hurting me.’”
Meanwhile, Haddish is calling BS on Hart’s claims and said Hart actually had a stand in the ENTIRE time.
“He has a stuntman who’s shorter than him, looks just like him,” joked Haddish.
Hart, however, was adamant that he’s No. 2 in the business behind Cruise and is sticking to his story. Take a look at our hilarious interview with Hart and Haddish and you be judge.
Does Kevin have what it takes to be a real action star?
“Night School” is in theaters September 28.
