Despite exiting the series earlier than expected, Hart was happy to be a part of it. Speaking to the audience at the venue after her dismissal, the ‘God’s Not Dead’ actress revealed:
“I wanted to do this for my children and for myself. I wanted to conquer something. I’ve never sung in front of people before. It’s terrifying to me. It was like conquering a fear and I did it guys!
The mother of three’s words rang true for the audience, as she also mentioned the same thing PEOPLE before climbing onto the stage of the hit Fox show. After admitting that singing was his ‘worst nightmare’, the King of Harts co-founder revealed that it was ‘probably the second time’ he had ‘sang live in front of an audience’.
It was easy for him to feel “so nervous”. Fortunately, the show’s use of masks helped her nerves as it gave her anonymity, which made her “comfortable enough to take it off and do it before anyone found out who I was.”
He went on to elaborate that his participation in the show landed him in an “uncomfortable place” he hadn’t been in a long time. Hart was also helped by her husband Mark Wilkerson’s “best advice,” which was to “have fun with it.” This tip came in handy when the blonde celebrity put on the costume, restricting her movement and vision. Inside words:
“My movement was very limited, which was a bit confusing because the thing I’m really good at is moving and dancing. So I was hoping to have fun with it, but the costume was a bit restrictive. I’m not claustrophobic, but I’ve become claustrophobic.”
Saturn Awards nominee regrets not dating Ryan Reynolds
In February, The Blast reported that the Young Artist Award winner in the ’90s said she did not date actor Ryan Reynolds. The stars met in 1996 on the set of “Sabrina The Teenage Witch,” in which Hart played the title character opposite Reynolds’ on-screen love interest Sethe.
Reminding the “Clarissa Explains It All” host of the events that followed their never-to-be romance, he said, “Hey, dude… The ’90s called!” the hosts – David Lascher and Christine Taylor – that they had some work to do.
“I met Corky (Chris William Martin) in Utah or something at a Nick Takes Over Your School event and we started calling from Vancouver to Orlando. Then I worked with Ryan Reynolds on the first Sabrina movie. The first movie we did had Ryan in it,” he began.
The “Kane & Abel” star then shared that she briefly dated Corky before her relationship with Reynolds. She previously addressed the details of their short-lived relationship in her 2013 memoir, Melissa Explains It All: Tales from My Abnormally Normal Life, where she admitted that their romance wasn’t as planned as when they were first dating. With Reynolds.
Despite this, the actress, touched by Angel, had no problem chasing him down, sitting in front of his car and kissing him. The couple spent the night as the “Deadpool” actor, who was 19 at the time, presented him with a Bulova watch later that day.
This was followed by his Canadian-American pal visiting him in New York to see if they could give him what he could. Unfortunately, the “Clueless” actress decided to “stick it out” with her then-boyfriend.
However, in 2017, Hart revealed that he regretted not accepting the offer to be more than friends. Despite the fact that this relationship did not work out, the actress found another man who made her heart flutter and married him in 2003.
The couple has three children: Mason, Braden and Tucker.
