Regina Hall Is Claiming New Life After 50 As Her 'Fox Season'

"I'm happy to be alive and honoring what you do gain. It's beautiful to age."

Celebrity News

The legendary, and somehow 50-year-old Regina Hall has been on her press rounds to promote her latest project, new TV series Nine Perfect Strangers. The show is based on the New York Times best-selling book of the same name by Liane Moriarty and filmed in Byron Bay. "We shot it in Australia, which is gorgeous. It's so pretty I thought it was CGI," Hall explained.


And with the actress resurfacing happy and as hilarious as ever, with quarantine now behind her (a time where she has said she's struggled), she can finally address the top-tier birthday video she released for her 50th this year. The conversation surrounding it has followed her around everywhere she goes, a recent visit to The Ellen Show being no different.

While chatting with frequent guest-host tWitch, she opened up about the milestone.

"I am very happy because the option is death. You're either going to get older every year or you're going to die. So, I'm happy to be alive and honoring what you do gain. There's a lot of, like, wisdom and I do think it's beautiful to age."

tWitch showed the birthday celebration song Hall had released online as the two continued to discuss, eventually touching on why she used the word 'bitch' to refer to herself in the song, noting that the word can also mean a female fox or otter. To that, her reply went in the aging flex hall-of-fame:

"I'm in fox season."

One of the best qualities of Hall is her comedic style, which tows the line of dark humor, and just plain ole funny. This has been the same about her since the Scary Movie franchise, where she got her biggest break. And sis has been working ever since, with more projects up her sleeve. She tells ESSENCE:

"The fact that I've been able to work throughout the years, as Scary Movie celebrates 21 years, I feel like there is no greater due that someone can give you than to continue to have you working. I feel really, really blessed in that way. It's good. I'm still here. What else could I want?"

Last October, Hall secured a first-look deal with Showtime to develop projects under her own production company, Rh Negative, thus expanding her relationship with network, coming off the news that her comedy series Black Monday had been renewed for a third season. Of the deal, Hall says:

"I've wanted to produce for a second now. I find great scripts that would be wonderful for myself and really for other people. There are a lot of things and a lot of opportunities for writers and it excited me to be able to create those opportunities and to create programs and movies that people would enjoy—stories that haven't been told or perspectives of stories that haven't been told."

Can't help but to love and support her!

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
