'About Last Night' Kevin Hart sex scenes horrified Regina Hall's mom
Regina Hall's sex scenes with Kevin Hart in the new R-rated romantic comedy "About Last Night" may have been a little too intense for her mother.
The movie was released on Feb. 14 -- Valentine's Day -- and is a reboot of a 1986 movie of the same name, which is based on a David Mamet play. The new film focuses on two couples -- Danny and Debbie (Michael Ealy and Joy Bryant) and Bernie and Joan (Hart and Hall). The latter's relationship is far more turbulent and raunchy.
Hart and Hall recently sat down with OTRC.com for a joint interview. Check out 3 highlights and watch videos of it in full above.
1. Regina Hall recalls her mother's response to her sex scenes ...
"I saw [the movie] once in Atlanta with an audience but my mother was one of the audience members," she told OTRC.com. "This is how my mom watched the movie. [Puts her head down.] Any scene we're in the bed, she's like this! So, I didn't realize she'd have that reaction so I kept looking over and she would do this. And my mom's got a dirty mouth, which is why we're surprised that she had that reaction, but I have to watch it with a different audience than her."
2. On Bernie's personality ...
"There's nothing worse than the guy who swears he knows what he's talking about but says all the wrong things to everybody that he's closest to," Hart said. "I don't think there's one thing that I said that was right -- my advice is wrong and it's blatantly wrong, It's not just wrong -- it's so far gone. And then I end up ... contradicting myself."
"I think that's the most interesting thing about my character -- is how he comes full circle and ends up doing the opposite of what he has told other people to do, which is why he has to hide, hence his girlfriend at the end."</p
3. On the actors' off-screen ...
"Regina has great energy," Hart told OTRC.com. "In other words, to be around her, she's fun. These days are brutal. Doing these days are brutal, but we're having fun, 'cause we vibe off each other, we make each other laugh. On set, it was that times ten. So yes, we're working ... and then we sit down and we're not rushing to our trailers or going to our space; we're talking, we're conversing."
