Hart, appears on Monday The Joe Rogan experience, said he downplayed his physical misery so medical workers wouldn’t shorten his rehabilitation program.

Brush with Death: Hart was a passenger in his own 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when he pulled off the Mulholland Highway and ended up in a ditch in Malibu Hills, California last year.
The Ride Along actor said he was completely confident in his ability to recover – and come back stronger – when doctors and nurses treated him to death in the aftermath of the brush.
“The best part was that I couldn’t walk, but when I was told that I was patient, I was able to recover completely, I could regain myself and immediately thought in my head,” I can really be better than I was, “‘ he said.
He added, “If I can keep beating myself, it means I’m fighting the only person I really want to beat and I am – no one else cares.”
The way back: The actor said that during his recovery, he remained focused on healing and improvement

“I’m in this great Rocky story with myself,” said the Jumanji actor.
The Ride Along star is currently expecting a girl with Parrish. About Ellen earlier this week, he said that his husband is’ so happy that ‘he is present’ during the stages of pregnancy.
“I’m here – you know, as usual, I’m in and out – so it was really a blessing to be around and talk, talk, just be a little bit with the fam during these months,” he said. “It was refreshing.”
