When did you discover you could make people laugh?
I’ve always loved to laugh and to make other people laugh.  My family is funny.  We’ve made each other laugh my whole life so I suppose it really started there.

To say your career is successful is an understatement! How did you get into acting?
I had a friend who was acting long before I was. She introduced me to her manager, but  I was in graduate school so I really didn’t have the time to devote to acting.  But after I earned my MA, I really delved in, studied and I met agent J. Michael Bloom. That changed everything. That was really the beginning.

Who do you play in the film?
I play Ryan Pierce, a successful author at the crossroads in her marriage.

You seem to have a lot of on-screen chemistry with your co-stars, how was it working with Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish?
I loved my co-stars – all of them.  I felt so blessed to work and play with such amazing, talented and supportive women. And it was so much fun!  Every day was filled with laughter.

‘Every day was filled with laughter,’ says Regina of her time on set with her co-stars

It’s refreshing seeing a film with four beautiful black women just having fun but within the industry, do you find yourself stereotyped in certain roles because of your colour?
Stereotypes exist for everyone. I focus on the blessing of work and  the opportunities I have in front of me.

Who inspires you?
People who are passionate and dedicated to love, self-expansion and God inspire me.

Hollywood is all about looking glam, who does your hair?
I have an incredible glam team who I’ve worked with for years.  For hair it’s Justi Embree and now Oscar James as well.

How do you look after it?
I’ve always loved weaves.  I still do, but eventually they took a toll on my hair.  I had to stop and really nurture my follicles. Now I get regular conditioning treatments, I sleep on a satin pillowcase, and I wear wigs.

Any red carpet tips?
I like to cross the legs. I love a 3/4 side angle pic and I always flash a smile! And good posture always wins.
