Hart was speaking to Will Smith on the Red Table Talk chat show, reflecting on the impact of infidelity and past homophobic tweets and the relationship with his family.
“I got on some armour. It’s very hard to shoot through this and bother me,” he said.
“When your child shows disappointment, shows emotion and you have those conversations, the head drops for the first time.”
“I can say having a little girl in my life, it’s tough. You don’t realise the impact that your mistakes could truly have,” he added.
“Getting my daughter back, getting her to understand that I was sorry, that I made a mistake. That was real.”
“When the whole thing started to happen with the LGBTQ+ community and the misconception of me, what I was and what I am and what I feel, my daughter was so upset because she couldn’t process how people could think this about her father,” he told Will Smith.
“I wish that I would’ve arrived at this space in my earlier years and I just want to be able to handle a lot of situations differently.”
