Kevin Hart has slammed claims suggesting he wants to star in a remake of the Robin Williams classic “Mrs. Doubtfire”.
The 38-year-old took to Twitter Tuesday to share a link to the article in question, alongside the caption: “This is completely false. I was asked if I could jump into Robin Williams’ body and do one of his movies which one would it be… I said ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’.”
Hart added that it was a “hypothetical question” and that he “never said anything about a remake.”
The comedian, who has been busy promoting his latest movie “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” alongside Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Nick Jonas and Karen Gillan, had stated in the CinemaBlend interview: “I’ll stay on the Robin Williams train and say that if I could [I would] jump into Mrs. Doubtfire. That was a very amazing performance on both ends for him. I think that’s one I’d love to get to play in.”
Hart’s latest tweet comes after he riled up the Twitterverse over the weekend with his “Saturday Night Live” opening monologue.
His speech received mixed reviews as he hurled insults at parents, insisting moms just “aren’t fun.” Read more here.
