Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson have proved they make a great pair. The duo both hosted the MTV Movie Awards, both were winners of this year’s Shorty Awards winning Best Comedian and Best Actor respectively and both will be co-starring in this summers action packed film, Central Intelligence.
Central Intelligence pairs a “chubby geek-turned-chiseled CIA agent” (Johnson) with a “Big Man on Camus-turned-accountant” (Hart) at their high school reunion with the mission of saving the world.
In an interview with EW the duo relive a few of their worst high school memories.
“Mine was definitely my moms whupping me in front of my ninth-grade class,” Hart revealed. “I wanted to try out for the basketball team, but the tryouts were at 6 a.m. and I lived almost an hour away from the school, so I had to leave the house at, like, 4 a.m. to make it.”
“My moms didn’t want me on public transportation that early, so I set all the clocks in the house [forward], including her watch. So at 4 a.m. it looked like 6 a.m., when I’d already be leaving the house,” Hart explained. “My moms got to work like two hours early, and when no one was there, she started to check the clocks.”
“She took the day off, camp up to the school, and beat the mess out of me,” says Hart.
“My mom didn’t whup me,” said Johnson, “but I definitely was a delinquent in the ninth grade, getting arrested. The cops wanted me for something, and they came into the classroom. That was embarrassing.”
“Really? Cause that sounds cool,” said Hart.
It seems that Hart and Johnson were both quite the trouble-makers. Check out their entire interview here.
