Q&A With Regina Hall
Q&A With Regina Hall continued...
"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."
What's the best health advice anyone has ever given you?
"Someone I worked with on a set taught me food combining: proteins and vegetables only, or vegetables and carbs only, but not a protein and a carb. I feel like that's been instrumental in terms of digestion and weight."
You've made several movies with actors who've become your friends, like Gabrielle Union, Sanaa Lathan, and Kevin Hart. What's it like to be in this tight-knit group?
"It's been really wonderful. They understand your excitement and disappointment. They understand the ups and downs. You get someone to talk to. Sometimes you don't want to talk about it and they get that, too."
If you were recovering in a hospital and you could have anyone, from any era, recovering next to you, who would it be?
