Kevin Hart Shares One of the Most Humbling Experiences of His Accident Recovery

After his car accident a couple of months ago, Kevin Hart made his first public appearance at the E! People’s Choice Awards on Nov. 10. And now he’s starting to talk about the crash a bit.

The “Jumani” star recently revealed what he went through in the hospital, specifically having to use a suppository to go to the bathroom.

“I’m like, ‘F–k, man,’ this is so bad. My wife’s in the room. This is just a bad feeling all around for me,” he said on his SiriusXM “Straight From the Hart” radio show. “But keep in mind, I have no movement. I can’t f–king move. To move is goddamn event.”

Hart then said the suppository started working around 6 a.m. the following morning, and it made him pop “out of bed like the goddamn undertaker.”

“My stomach felt like somebody lit dynamite and threw it in my f—ing stomach and ran,” he added.

The comedian then said what happened after he used the bathroom made him realize just how helpless he was.

“Here’s the most humbling thing in the world,” explained the Philly native. “Jose was my nurse, he’s like 60 years old, Mexican dude. Jose comes in and don’t ask me no questions. Jose grabs the gauze, puts this spongy, soapy sh– on the gauze, turns me around and starts wiping my ass.”

“He said, ‘It’s OK, man. I’ve been doing this for 40 years. … Keep it coming, man,'” Hart added. “It was humbling how it happened. It makes you realize, you really are helpless. Like, there was nothing I could do.”

Hart’s accident happened on Sept. 1 in Malibu, Calif. when his friend Jared Black drove Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda off the road and into a fence. The comedian received three spinal fractures, which required surgery and a 10-day hospital stay.

Black also received a serious back injury, and his fiancée Rebecca Broxterman, who was in the back seat, left the scene with minor injuries.

“GRATEFUL and BLESSED,” she wrote Thursday on Instagram. “September 1, 2019 was the scariest day of my life. God was definitely watching over us that night and protecting us.”
