Kevin Hart has reconciled with his once-absentee dad and admires the fact his old man doesn't live in the past.
The comedian was largely brought up by his late mother thanks to his dad Henry's drug issues and more than one stint behind bars, but father and son have found a way to put the past behind them.
Hart tells Men's Health magazine, "When he finally got himself together, he didn't harp on about what he did wrong and how it wasn't his fault. It was all, 'OK, this happened. How can I make it better?'
"He never complained... and I respect that. That's all I needed."
