The guest list for the White House holiday parties is even more exclusive than usual this year (blame that late Thanksgiving for the truncated season), but among those who made the shorter list is actor/comedian Kevin Hart.

And forget the jaded, seen-it-all attitude some celebrities cop — he appears to be taking in the experience with undisguised excitement.

No word yet on which of the holiday receptions that the actor– whose most famous flicks include Think Like A Man and the stand-up comedy film Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain — was attending. Our calls to the East Wing and Hart’s publicist weren’t returned right away.


The star of the upcoming buddy-cop movie Ride Along wasn’t alone — girlfriend Eniko Parrish, an aspiring model/actress and Baltimore native — accompanied him to the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue festivities.
