US comic Kevin Hart doubts he will ever play a gay character on film.
According to TMZ, the performer was a guest on the radio program Breakfast Club on New York City’s Power 105.1.
He was asked if there was any role he’s ever turned down (in the past year the comedian has appeared in a number of films). Hart admitted to turning down a role in 2008’s Tropic Thunder because the character was too extreme in his sexuality.
When asked if he could play a gay role, Hart said no.
‘I can’t because I don’t think I’m really going to dive into that role 100 percent, because of the insecurities about myself trying to play that part,’ the 35-year-old said.
‘What I think people are going to think while I’m trying to do this is going to stop me from playing that part the way I’m supposed to.’
Despite these concerns, Hart did mention his ‘love and respect to the LGBT community.
