kevin hart (tmz)

*In light of what was revealed about funnyman Kevin Hart in the Sony leaks, when TMZ caught with him they asked if he’d ever work with the studio again.

However, Hart – who’s known for being direct – didn’t exactly answer the question … or did he?

Hart was leaving a club in Hollywood Monday night when he was asked the question. It seems relevant, given that one Sony exec called Hart a “whore.”

Hart, who initially came out swinging for “his brand” … deflected the question in an interesting way.
