Kevin Hart recently had a candid conversation with Ben Affleck on the premiere episode of the fourth season of his show, Hart to Heart. Hart humorously brought up the fact that he was the runner-up for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2002, a title that ultimately went to Affleck. Reflecting on that time, Hart joked about the missed opportunity and how it was a challenging period for him.

Affleck, in good spirits, admitted that he was aware of the situation and humorously shared that he decided to take the title when he found out that Hart might get it instead. The banter between the two stars was light-hearted and showcased their friendship.

This conversation between Hart and Affleck is not the first time a celebrity has reflected on their Sexiest Man Alive recognition. Dwayne Johnson, who was named the Sexiest Man Alive in 2016, also shared his experience shooting the cover in Hawaii, where he spent his formative years. Johnson expressed gratitude for the opportunity, especially considering his past struggles with financial hardship.

The exchange between Hart and Affleck is set to premiere on Thursday, June 20 on Peacock. Be sure to catch the episode to see more of their hilarious banter and behind-the-scenes insights. Subscribe to PEOPLE’s newsletter to stay updated on the latest celebrity news and human interest stories.
