Injured: Kevin’s daughter heading off to college coincides with the news of his recent wheelchair-bound condition. The reason behind his temporary disability? A muscle tear sustained while challenging former NFL standout, Stevan Ridley, to a race.

In a wheelchair: 'I can't walk ... sit my a** down,' the Die Hart star said. 'I blew all my s*** - tore my lower abdomen and my abductors are torn. I don't even know what that is, but I tore them'

While sitting in a wheelchair, the star of Die Hart humorously expressed, “Walking is not in the cards for me at the moment… I prefer relaxing in this seat. I managed to overexert myself and caused damage to my lower abdomen and abductors, despite being unsure of what they exactly are!”

Reflecting: In the clip, Hart reluctantly admitted that his age was catching up to him physically and expressed, 'Ladies and gentlemen, the age of 40 is real,' Hart said

During the video, Hart candidly acknowledged that his body was starting to feel the effects of his age, humorously remarking, “Folks, the reality of turning 40 is catching up with me.”

The actor and Ridley, who managed to score an impressive 12 touchdowns during the 2012 season, decided to settle their dispute over who was faster by organizing a 40-yard dash and placing a bet on the outcome. Unfortunately, Hart ended up getting hurt during the race.

Afterward, Hart expressed his frustration with the situation, stating that he was unable to walk and even had to sit down. He revealed that he had suffered injuries to his lower abdomen and abductors, although he admitted he wasn’t entirely sure what the latter term meant. Despite his lack of knowledge about the specific injuries, Hart acknowledged that his age was starting to catch up with him physically.

In a video clip, Hart addressed the audience, particularly those who were 40 years old and above, emphasizing that reaching this milestone age was significant and deserved respect. He candidly confessed that he had underestimated the effect of aging on his body and had foolishly attempted to engage in activities more suited to younger individuals.

Reflecting on the incident, Hart questioned why he had even participated in the race, labeling it as the dumbest thing he had ever done and admitting that he felt like the world’s dumbest man. Nevertheless, he recognized that this was simply a part of life and acknowledged the consequences of his actions.

In a recent update, Hart shared his condition while riding in a moving vehicle. He openly spoke about the negative impact of the injury on his manhood, attributing it to the swelling caused by the accident.
