Kevin Hart said he wants to be a billionaire before he turns age 45. Can he do it? Based on what we can see so far, the answer is most definitely “yes.”

In an exclusive interview with CBS Sunday, the comedian & actor sat down with Gayle King to talk about his goals to reach that elusive billionaire status. For Hart, it’s about more than just the money — but about the message. And while he has a respectable net worth so far, he said he’d like the media to “tell a different story” in three years from now, when he turns 45-years-old.

As AfroTech previously reported, Kevin Hart has an estimated net worth of $200 million. So, can he achieve the elusive billionaire status achieved by only a handful of Black men, so far? Will his net worth increase to that point? And what is his true driving motivation, anyway?

We decided to take a look — and for the record, if his salary continues to increase, year over year, the way it has done so far, he will definitely achieve billionaire status by the time he’s age 45. And considering he’s doing it for a reason much larger than himself, he’s to be both commended and supported in this quest.

"It's Not About The Money"

For many billionaires — aspiring and otherwise — the road to a billion is all about the number of zeros in the checkbook, the need to buy fancy and expensive things, and to set their families up for future generations.

But while Kevin Hart certainly appreciates all these things, he said that his larger goal was to inspire other Black men and women, as well.

“It’s not about the money,” he said. “It’s about the title of a billionaire. What does that mean, how did you get there? What was your road to getting there? The point is about the other Black kids that are from where I’m from, from the inner cities, the places that are told that so much is impossible. Well, you can see it is possible. You can have a real eye-sight of someone that did it, that can talk to you in a way that you understand and you know.”
