Kevin Hart has attempted to set the record straight on his actual height but fans still suspect a tall tale. 

Known as one of Hollywood’s most pint-sized comedians, Kevin’s height has often been the butt of his own jokes over the years

In a bid to put an end to the humorous speculation, the Ride Along actor, 44, was finally asked to clarify the rumours once and for all. 

During the latest episode of CBS’ 60 Minutes, host Anderson Cooper pointed out that GQ has previously reported his stature as 5’5” and The Los Angeles Times as 5’4”. 

However, one unnamed outlet even claimed Kevin stood at 5’2 which he wasn’t too impressed with. 

‘Well, that place is b******t,’ he laughed to Anderson. 

‘GQ finally got it right. [I’m] 5’5, like with a shoe on, like a sneaker. Now, if I put a boot on, I can get to 5’5″ and a half.’ 

Fans still weren’t convinced by Kevin’s claims and argued that he was still exaggerating. 

TheToriJoy commented on TikTok: ‘I’ve met him. I’m 5 feet even. He was maybe 2 inches taller than me.’ 

Referring to Kevin’s Jumanji co-star Dwayne Johnson, Vikuls laughed: ‘Nah, the rock said he was 33 centimetres tall.’ 

Fefe LaFontaine claimed: ‘I’m 5’8” he walked past me in Vegas and barely reached my shoulder.’ 

‘Kevin LIES. That man is 5’2 on a tall day,’ Jenni_Fromdabloc joked. 

Larry Birds**t weighed in: ‘I did security for him in nyc years ago, I’m telling u right now that man is not 5’5 he’s like 5’2.’

Even throwing other men under the bus, 313csmit claimed: ‘Men tend to round up with their height. If you tell me you’re 5’9, I round down…5’7.’ 

Explaining why he’s made his height the centre of many of his jokes over the years, Kevin said: ‘It’s talking about the things that you aren’t afraid to laugh at about yourself. 

‘I’m really confident that the laugh that I’m getting, you’re not laughing necessarily at me as if I’m a joke. You’re laughing at the experience. I’m giving you an experience through a story that is relatable. And more importantly, I’m saying things that other people just don’t have the heart to say.’ 

Fans in the US will get to enjoy more of those gags this summer when Kevin heads out with Chris Rock on their joint tour, Rock Hart: Only Headliners Allowed.
