For both Cube & Hart: Did Conan approach you guys for that skit about riding through Hollywood, or did you guys approach him? I thought it was great .. I LOL'd when Conan ordered Wendy's

_IceCube2022 karma

Conan approached us to do the skit. Laughed out loud when I saw it.

Iamkevinhart1410 karma

Conan approached us and it was all done without any prep.

cadenhead1024 karma

For Kevin Hart: You find a lot of comedy in male insecurities, including a famous bit where you express fear that your son will be gay. You praised Frank Ocean at the MTV VMAs in 2012 for having the courage to come out, and recently said in an interview that you don't do jokes any more about gays. What changed your mind on this subject of humor?

Iamkevinhart1970 karma

It's just a sensitive topic and I respect people of all orientations. So, it's just best left alone.

runaway_goat1015 karma

Cube and Kevin: What are the dumbest rumors you've heard about yourselves?

Thanks for doing this AMA!

Iamkevinhart2397 karma

I heard that I didn't have any thumbs.

_IceCube2356 karma

That I was dead! Totally untrue. I can prove it.

gregm970971 karma

Cube: Why did you make "Are We There Yet"?

Vpmcgruder841 karma

How hard was it to keep a straight face during scenes with Kevin?

_IceCube2832 karma

No. Just thought about how much money he was going to ask to do the sequel. Stayed pissed off.

Eman9707801 karma

Ice cube: Do you think your acting career has helped or hindered your reputation as a rapper?

_IceCube2839 karma

Only an insecure person would worry about their reputation as a rapper. I do what I feel when I feel it. My rep is cemented.

Apologician749 karma

How far away are we from the next Friday movie? Also will Smokey be making a return? When are y'all going on First Take again?

The next Friday movie is caught up in development hell at New Line Cinema. Pray that we get it outta there.

I saw your promo you guys did with Conan O'brien awhile back. How fun is it working with Conan? Is he the whitest man in america?

_IceCube1645 karma

It's always fun working with Conan. He is definitley not the whitest man in America. We plan on starting a rap group together.

He's definitely the whitest guy in America but we had a ball filming that sketch.

ajb1990504 karma

Cube: How did John Singleton convince you to do a screen test for Boyz N the Hood? It's to my understanding you were hesitant.

Kevin: Of the many movies you have lined up to come out (after Ride Along), which one are you most excited about?

_IceCube913 karma

He pursued me for two years. I was hesitant because I didn't think I was qualified. He showed me I was.

It would be about me being tall and Chinese.

jbasstastic330 karma

Kevin, Is your uncle still your physical trainer? Any other stories about times he talks to you like you're working out in the prison yard?

Iamkevinhart851 karma

Yeah, he's the best. Right now we use the Foreman Grill as a weight to increase the stamina and balance in the yard.

epeens327 karma

Not a question. Just wanted to say Kevin you are freakin hilarious. Laugh at my pain is one of my favorite stand ups.

Ice Cube it was pretty cool meeting you when you were on tour around the universities promoting your movie.

Jmo_hdz250 karma

Kevin - what's your height? Cause everyone you post up next to is always taller than you. And I love all of your stand ups and movies. Respect how you never forget your roots.

Cube -Do you ever look back at where you first started in the rap game? And how much of a change do you feel it had made upon your career where you're at now?

Iamkevinhart1046 karma

I'm 5'4" but with a Timberland boot I can get to 6'4"!

_IceCube473 karma

There is no career without the rap game for me. It was my launching pad.

IAmRichHomieQuanAMA244 karma

Kevin: The episode of Real Husbands of Hollywood where Chris Rock "endorses" products is actually the funniest thing I've ever seen. How did Chris react when you pitched that to him?

bushpigswag88 karma

Cube: Where does that cold-ass guitar riff from "Today Was a Good Day" come from? Everytime I pick up my guitar I sing Dooo-waa Dooo-waa, then I pick that little riff. =)

Kevin: I always thought that being an awards-host puts a comic on a tight balancing rope as far as offending people/getting laughs. Did you enjoy doing it, or was there a "rider" full of things you weren't allowed to use for jokes?

Iamkevinhart133 karma

Of course I enjoyed it, it's about pushing the envelope when you host those types of events.

andyourmothertoo81 karma

Hey Cube and Hart!

Cube: How will this movie with Kevin Hart differ from your other movies with other comedians i.e. Chris Tucker, Mike Epps...?

Kevin Hart: are you working on any other stand up projects? I went to go see you live in Phoenix and also went to go watch your movie. You sir, are hilarious!

Thanks guys!

_IceCube238 karma

It's better. Me and Kevin display a different kind of chemistry, not seen since the like of 48 Hours, Lethal Weapon and Bad Boys.

Iamkevinhart204 karma

Right now I'm building a new hour of material. I should be ready to tour in 2015.

HeffalumpndaWoozles45 karma

Kevin! As a vertically challenged person myself I'm wondering if you think people find it funny when you go HAM because you're short? or do they take you seriously most of the time?

Iamkevinhart362 karma

People take me serious all the time because of my prison background.

Hearing Kevin crack jokes about everybody on the crew
