39 Times Actors Refused To Kiss Their Costar On Camera
Kevin Hart has turned down roles because he refuses to kiss another guy
You may have gotten to see him smooch the legendary Dwayne Johnson in Central Intelligence, but don’t count on seeing him play a homosexual character anytime soon. In the past, he turned down the role of Alpa Chino (a closeted gay rapper) in Tropic Thunder because he thought the character was “real flagrant.” In an interview, though, he clarified that while he respects the LGBTQ community, he doesn’t feel confident that he can portray those kinds of roles.
He said: “I can’t [play a gay character] 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. 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.”
