Kevin Hart has revealed that he had COVID-19 months ago -- but said nothing.

According to Page Six, Hart revealed his diagnosis at an iteration of Dave Chappelle's An Intimate Socially Distanced Affair show in Yellow Springs, Ohio. 

"The problem is that I had it around the same time as Tom Hanks, and I couldn't say anything because he's more famous than I am," he said. 

Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson announced that they tested positive for COVID-19 in March.

Last month he spoke about his experience of the illness.

"Oh, as the canaries in the coal mine for the COVID-19 experience, we are fine. We had about 10 days of very uncomfortable symptoms. Not life-threatening, we're happy to say. We were isolated in order to keep an eye on ourselves because if our temperatures had spiked, if our lungs had filled, if any number of things had gone wrong with this, we would have needed expert medical care," he told EW. "We didn't. I guess we were model recoverers from COVID-19, but we were also isolated so that we would not give it to anybody else that we came in contact with, and since then have been doing the same isolating, social distancing that is being asked of the world so, we are fine."
