Kevin Hart appeared on the "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" today -- his first television appearance since going through that terrible car accident in September.

He was there to promote his new movie Jumanji: The Next Level, but it was clear he was also there to talk about surviving the car crash, in which he and two other people went off the road and down a ditch. Hart had to have his spine fused in two places.

It sounds like the old Hart is back, since he revealed one embarrassing thing that happened when he was in the hospital.

He told DeGeneres that at one point in the hospital, "I couldn't even wipe my a—."

Hart explained how his injuries changed his perspective on life.

"You don’t realize that your back is connected to everything, so coming out of back surgery everything changed because you’re kinda helpless.

That’s when you see what really matters, who really matters. Life kind of hits you in a completely different way."

A 'New You'

It's kind of refreshing to hear Hart talk openly about his feelings and how the event has changed his life.

He told DeGeneres:

"I think there's something special about any journey. It doesn't matter what the journey is, I think there's an amazing thing about knowing there's a road that you gotta get down and along that road are a lot of peaks, hills, valleys, and at the end of it, all of those peaks, hills and valleys make so much sense because of the punctuation at the end.

I like saying, 'Ok, it's time to rebuild,' but we're not rebuilding to get back to the old you, we're rebuilding to be better and become a new you."

Happy To Have His Family's Support

But he was also glad to say that his family stuck by him while he was recuperating.

"You go, 'Wow! This is love. 'This is what real love and life is.' And the things that you think matter, you realize don't. It's not about your level of success, it's not about how much money you have, it's about that.

It's about those individuals and who you really mean the most to and who mean the most to you. I’ve got a completely different look on life now, a much better one."

It's the Little Things

Hart said on Ellen's show that one thing that he was really proud of while recovering from that car accident was being able to put on one sock at a time.

"My biggest triumph was when I put my socks on, when I put my socks on it was the biggest thing in the world."
