Kevin Hart says he's 'blessed to be alive' after car crash

Comedian Kevin Hart was involved in a near-fatal car crash on September 1. Now, he's said that he's "blessed to be alive" after he was spotted by a reporter on a Los Angeles shopping trip.

In an interview with TMZ, the 40-year-old said: "[I'm feeling] great, I'm feeling blessed to be alive. No, [I'm not fully recovered], it's a process, it's going to take some time. I'm patient."

This is what Hart said the first time he spoke publically after the accident: 

He was then questioned about whether or not he would be returning to the comedy stage any time soon and he said: "Uuh, in time. Right now, [I'm] relaxing with the family and recovering."

Explaining how he was affected by the crash, Hart said: "After my accident, I see things differently, I see life from a whole new perspective.

"My appreciation for life is through the roof. I'm thankful for my family, my friends."

He summed up his experience saying: "Don't take today for granted, because tomorrow's not promised. More importantly, I'm thankful for God, I'm thankful for life. I'm thankful for simply still being here."

Responding to well-wishes on his video about the accident, Hart's wife Eniko wrote: "Your true fans were concerned, praying & missing you deeply. Thank you ALL for your kind words and allowing us to heal during this time."

Dwayne Johnson also left a message of support, writing: "Beautifully said. Love u brotha. Onward."

The beloved best friends also recently took part in a hilarious Halloween skit:

And while it might be a while before Hart officially returns to comedy, he recently trolled Johnson with this hilarious Halloween skit, once again proving that you can't keep a good man down for long.

All the best with your continued recovery, Kevin!
