11. Being Friends With Britney Spears

Back in the late ’90s, Hart was one of the most notable young actresses of the time and Spears was the hottest pop star of the time. They joined forces and became friends when Hart starred in Spears’ music video for “(You Drive Me) Crazy” which was the theme song for Hart’s film Drive Me Crazy. With Spears being underage and very restricted by her security team, Hart hatched a plan to sneak the pop star away for some fun. “Britney and I did a lot of press together in New York, Utah, L.A., on the set of her video, on the set of Sabrina. So we did a lot together, a ton of awards shows and stuff. But yeah, I snuck her away from her bodyguard to take her because she just looked liked she needed to be around people her own age,” Hart explained. “One time I was like, ‘Do you want to get lunch?’ and she [turned to her team and] said, ‘Can I go to lunch?’ They said, ‘No, you can’t go to lunch, you have to go to the gym and then you have vocal lessons and then you have to be here, you have to be there, you have a commercial shoot, and then you have to get ready for tour next week.’ I was just like, poor girl. I was like, ‘Let’s pretend we’re just going to my mom’s house tonight and I’ll get you away and we’ll go dancing.’ So that’s what we did.” She revealed that they went to L.A.’s Club Cherry and she immediately lost Britney in the crowd after sneaking her in through a back door. “At the end of the night, I found her in a private booth with dozens of people kissing her ass as she basked in the attention and downtime she’d worked so hard for…Since then, Britney’s been snuck in and out of more backdoors than I can count, but I shudder to think that I first showed her how it’s done.”
