About Last Night  star Kevin Hart talks candidly to Oprah Winfrey for her new Oprah Prime which airs tonight at 9 p.m. on OWN.  The comedic superstar opens up about his new found fame and how social media has played an integral part in keeping him connected to his fan base. For Hart, social media tools like Twitter and Facebook are paramount to one’s success and relevance.

“Social media is everything to me,”  Hart says. “In our generation, in today’s time, being able to talk back and forth with your fans goes a long way. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Vine: these things are all tools that… I don’t like to say the actors before me, but the older actors, Denzel, Will Smith, they’re not social media savvy really because they didn’t have to back then. It was a talk show, campaign, and then that was it. Right now with all the stuff out there, your fans, they like to know. I love the fact that I show that I’m real. What you see is what you get.”
