DeGeneres announced the interview via Twitter: “I had an incredible and honest conversation with @KevinHart4real about hosting the #Oscars. It was supposed to air on Monday. I don’t want you to have to wait, so now it’s gonna air tomorrow.”
Hart stepped down from hosting the upcoming Academy Awards after a controversy mushroomed about past homophobic remarks. DeGeneres notably came out on television and is a former Academy Awards host.
