COVER â€“ Regina Hall
Thereâ€™s nothing scary about The Honeymoonersâ€™ curvy Regina Hall. Well, except her infatuation with the way a certain dirty word sounds with an Irish accent.
Regina Hall has jokes. None of the juvenile your- mama- so-stupid- she- thought- Tupac- Shakur- was- a- Jewish- holiday variety. Sheâ€™d rather make you guffaw by making light of the word cunt. Gushing with adult humor, the 30-something DC nativeâ€”with a Masterâ€™s degree in journalism, thank you very muchâ€”has ripened something lovely since sheâ€™s blessed the sliver screen with a small role, Candy the stripper, in The Best Man. Sheâ€™s an unofficial Wayans sister thanks to her recurring role in the Scary Movie franchise, and in Malibuâ€™s Most Wanted she straightened out Jamie Kennedyâ€™s punk ass and became the around-the-way ideal for white boys with Down Syndrome. This summer, she takes the leap to blockbuster status in the long-awaited Honeymooners remake, where she, in the role of Trixie, helps Cedric The Entertainer, Mike Epps, and Gabrielle Union colorize the classic black-and-white sitcom.
Shunning â€œstupid,â€ her least favorite word:
â€œThereâ€™s just something about it thatâ€™s hurtful. And of course, thereâ€™s â€˜cunt.â€™â€
Slightly retracting the previous statement based on her time in Ireland:
â€œI do have to say that the accent makes it a little better. [laughs] Cahnt.â€
Discussing the fish-out-of-water experience of being Black in Ireland:
â€œAt first, I was really feeling like that, but once we got there and started working everyone was so friendly. I mean, we could get cabs. Consistently.â€
