While he didn't want to elaborate on how he has evolved over the years, Hart said, "I'm not saying how I changed anymore".

The conversation, of course, came in the wake of Kevin Hart stepping down from hosting this year's ceremony after he received backlash for old homophobic tweets, as well as jokes in his stand-up material from his past.

In his one-on-one with co-host Michael Strahan, Hart emphasized he's not considering doing the Oscars and wants to move forward with his career. On Wednesday morning, however, Hart appeared on GMA, where he emphatically closed the door on the Oscars issue. "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past", Hart tweeted.

"The people who produce that show are hogtied by the Academy, who as a group are not willing to change very much", an awards show and live events producer anonymously told the outlet.

"I'm over it", Hart told Strahan about his apology and the controversy. "I'm a good person, I love to love, if you don't see that then it's a problem with you".

In a follow-up video shared on Instagram, in which he explained why he wouldn't apologise, he added: "I chose to pass, I passed on the apology".

"I would like to call myself a perfectionist, so when I do something I want to be able to give it my all".

"It's hard to predict what can happen", Hart continued. I'm just done. So you have to come to a point where you know that you've given all that you possibly can. I've addressed it. I've spoken on it. This will mark the first time in 30 years that the show has not secured a host. "I think it needs to be somebody who loves the films". That's a fear. Keep in mind, I'm not homophobic. I was going to say what the meme did and what damage it could do. And once on social media, the actor-comedian tweeted, "Yo if my son comes home & try's 2 play with my daughters doll house I'm going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice 'stop that's gay'". "You're not getting no more of my energy from it".

Hart stepped down as Oscars host after the posts were brought to light. "Right now I don't have the time".
