Mum inspires comedy star Kevin Hart to read his Bible

ENCOURAGED TO READ: Comedy star Kevin Hart

COMEDY STAR Kevin Hart has shared with Oprah Winfrey how his mother encouraged him to read his Bible.

During the early years building his stand up comedy career, Hart’s mother offered to help him out by paying his rent for a year, and when he needed financial help, Hart would call his mum and she’d always ask him, "Have you been reading your Bible?"

Hart would respond, "Mum, come on - I don't have time to talk about that right now.

"I'm late. I need the rent money." Hart's mother would reply: “When you read your bible, then we'll talk about your rent."

Mother and son had the same conversations over many weeks, until Hart was given an eviction notice, which inspired him to take his mother’s advice and open his Bible and read it.

When he did so, six rent checks fell out.

Hart’s career is currently on the up.

He’s the star of BET’s Real Husbands Of Hollywood, featured in the film Think Like A Man and stars in the recent box office smash-hit Ride Along with Ice Cube.
