“Nine Perfect Strangers” Star Regina Hall on her New Age and New Project for Health Magazine

Posted on August 11, 2021

After a milestone birthday, Regina Hall is taking the time to reflect on the wellness practices that make her feel her best for Health’s September issue, where she opens up on her new series ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ alongside Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy and the hardship that lead her to acting.




On what drew her to Nine Perfect Strangers: “So many elements! I am a big fan of Nicole Kidman—I think she’s tremendous. And I’m a big fan of Melissa McCarthy. I think she’s amazing. Then, of course, I read the script and I realized it was a Liane Moriarty book. I had loved Big Little Lies. Every time I read an episode I was like, ‘Wait, I want to know what happens in the next one.’ That’s always a good sign.”

On her father unexpectedly passing away when she was in her early 20s: “It was his passing that really shifted how I looked at life—I realized how brief it can be and how suddenly it can change,” she shares. “That’s what led me to acting. The thing about feeling broken is that it forces you to be open—you feel like you don’t have much, so you don’t overthink everything.”

On the wellness practices that make her feel best: “I love when I eat right and when I feel spiritually centered and connected. I love when I’m meditating—that ebbs and flows. Sometimes I pray, sometimes I meditate, and sometimes it’s just about being in nature. My mom just passed, so it’s been a rough time, and I haven’t been able to meditate. But I have been able to talk to God and be in nature and be present in the beauty of that.”

 On turning 50 and evolving through life: “I think in the collective consciousness of the world, it’s considered a big milestone—so there’s no way for it to not be exactly that. But it’s also not abnormal—you either have another birthday…or you don’t. It’s that or death, right? Life is an ever-evolving thing and process. You just keep knowing more and changing—at least that’s the hope.”
