Q&A With Regina Hall

Q&A With Regina Hall continued...

What's your best health habit?

"I have a few rituals. Water -- lots of water. That's my go-to. I think water flushes out toxins and it's good for your skin. I also take a lot of oils: olive oil, omega oils, borage oil. I like to do it in liquid form. Oh, and my probiotics. I really try to remember those."

What's your worst health habit?

"French fries and chips. I am one big piece of salt. It's terrible for cellulite. I'm like, 'That explains a lot!' I love anyone's fries, but I do love McDonald's fries. When you get them from a place that makes them just right, I mean, it's just wrong!"

You decided to buy a house and renovate it in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley. Why the move?

"In L.A., there's so much traffic. And the whole feeling of Hollywood -- sometimes I don't want to think of the business. Instead of living closer to Hollywood or in the center of things, I live in Tarzana. When I go home, it's like my brain can really de-clutter."

What health habits were most helpful when you filmed Think Like a Man Too?

"The whole thing took place in Vegas! It's easy to be healthy in certain cities -- L.A. is so easy -- but in certain cities it's harder. I can't say that was my healthiest point. I struggled just to stay good. But I still had all my water."

Your dog, Zeus, is on a raw food diet. Why?

"He hurt his leg and the vet thought he could have arthritis. I didn't want to put him on medication so I started doing research. I saw that raw food has collagen and marrow and all the stuff they'd be eating out in the wild, and it's good for their coat and bones. I put him on it when he was about 2 and a half or 3. He's 8 now and it has made a world of difference."

Is 40 the new 30, and 50 the new 40?

"Oh God, I hope so! People are taking care of themselves and there are a lot more resources. We're living in a much faster-paced society. Now if you don't have time to cook, you can go get a raw shake. I think people are connecting the mental, spiritual, and emotional component to their physical well-being, as well."

What do you do to relax?

"I love to hike. I go up Reseda [Blvd. in Los Angeles] or there's a great hike up Fryman [Canyon Park in Los Angeles]. I love yoga and I used to do it constantly until I pinched a nerve in my back. Now I do Pilates. I go to SRF and do meditation -- it's called Self-Realization Fellowship. It's a very beautiful meditative service. The energy of the place is very serene. When I leave, I feel recharged."
