Regina Hall Shares Her Mom’s Best Advice About Beauty

Regina Hall is known as a timeless beauty in Hollywood, but as the old saying goes, “beauty comes from within.” And that’s something the 51-year-old Girls Trip star lives by thanks to her mother. "My mom used to always say, 'You're only as pretty as you act,'" she said in “The Beautiful Issue” for PEOPLE.

"A beautiful world comes from a beautiful heart; that's probably the best way to be beautiful. I've dated some men that haven't all been traditionally handsome, but then you fall in love and you're like, 'They're such a good human being.' They actually get more beautiful."

The Black Monday star also shared that she felt the most beautiful "when I'm really in love." "I think it just comes together. I don't know that it's something you seek," she said about finding love. "When I've been in relationships, I feel like I've met a guy out or maybe through a friend. I've never used technology, but I think it's so individual."

Regina had a close relationship with her mom Ruby who died last year. The actress dedicated a Mother’s Day tribute to her that same year. “My Everything... Missing you every second. Loving You Forever and Ever and Always. Happy Heavenly Mother’s Day Mommy 💔,” she wrote.

"I had a really great relationship with my mom," she told People. "She just was everything. She loved life, so I remember to do that now."

Back in 2019, the actress made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and shared a hilarious story about getting high with her mom. Regina’s dog Zeus had passed away and her mom visited her daughter during that time. The actress said she was giving her dog weed and decided to try it with her mom. However, they took too much than recommended, which resulted in them freaking out.

“I called my friend on the phone and I said, ‘Listen, I think Mommy is having a stroke,’” Regina said. “I was distraught ‘cause I was like the dog, now Mommy.”

She called an ambulance but didn’t tell the doctors that they ingested marijuana. “Well, no; my friend was doing a prayer, and she said, ‘Did you take your stuff,’” she said. “Then we were downstairs, and she said, ‘I think you b–es are high.’”

How Content Creators Hey Fran Hey And Shameless Maya Embraced The Pivot

This article is in partnership with Meta Elevate.

If you’ve been on the internet at all within the past decade, chances are the names Hey Fran Hey and Shameless Maya (aka Maya Washington) have come across your screen. These content creators have touched every platform on the web, spreading joy to help women everywhere live their best lives. From Fran’s healing natural remedies to Maya’s words of wisdom, both of these content creators have built a loyal following by sharing honest, useful, and vulnerable content. But in search of a life that lends to more creativity, freedom, and space, these digital mavens have moved from their bustling big cities (New York City and Los Angeles respectively) to more remote locations, taking their popular digital brands with them.

What If You're Just (Sigh)...Tired Of Being Married?

If there’s a contradiction that never ceases to amaze me when it comes to marriage, it’s the fact that it’s typically more women (than men) who desire to get married, and also it’s more women who initiate divorce (around 70 percent, to be exact; some stats say 80 percent within the Black community. Wow). When it comes to all of this, if there’s a consistency that I’ve noticed in the counseling sessions that link these two points, it’s that a lot of women went into marriage thinking it would be one way and then opt to leave when they find themselves being utterly disappointed.
