For a man who virtually conquered Hollywood in 2013/2014, who's movies grossed millions of dollars on the US box office and became the first black comedian to have a sold-out concert at the famous Square Garden in New York, one would think Kevin Hart is capable of just anything and everything, but no!

Kevin says he's powerful enough to turn down a particular movie role careless the cash!

In a recent interview with 'The Breakfast Club' on Power 105.1FM, the comedian – who is currently promoting his latest movie 'The Wedding Ringer' – was asked if there was ever a role he'd turned down.

Hart admitted he indeed said 'no' to one!

The 'Think Like A Man' star revealed he turned down the role of Alpa Chino in 'Tropic Thunder' because the gay dialogue was "flagrant", reports TMZ.

He further went on to explain that he could not play a gay role, at least now, because he'd be too distracted by what others would say or think about him -- and that would get in the way of his performance.
