Kevin Hart Wants To Help End ‘Black Movies’

Kevin Hart wants to change the idea that there are “black” movies.

“I think that’s where the Kevin Hart Effect comes in,” the 33-year-old actor/comedian says, laughing. “I feel like, right now, my audience is very much on both sides.”

On one hand, “The support I get from black people is amazing,” something he says has been true since his early days as a stand-up comedian. “But once the crossover effects happens and other people are aware of you, (success) becomes about great material.”

Hart was in San Francisco promoting his latest film, “Think Like a Man Too,” the sequel to the 2012 surprise hit “Think Like a Man.” Unlike so many of his characters — loud and armed to the teeth with quips and comebacks — Hart is surprisingly engaging, warm and even serious when it comes to his career and how his movies are perceived.
