Regina Hall is a spiritual person who allows her faith to be a guiding compass that influences her life choices and precedes her critical moments.
Hall opened up about having a prayer session with the women before they headed up on stage and how she felt a strong sense of unity when it took place.
Regina Hall Talks Being United By Faith With Her Oscars Co-Hosts
In her recent cover story for The Beautiful Issue of People Magazine, Hall opened up about how faith guided her and her co-hosts while hosting the Academy Awards.
Before the “Girl’s Trip” actress started her gig at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on March 27, 2022, she and her partners had a spiritual moment. She recounted,
Right before the stage went up, Amy was like, ‘Can we start a prayer?’ And so we held hands, and Wanda said the prayer, It was great feeling really united, the three of us, as the show started and the stage opened.
The women relished the feeling of being one and finding an outlet that brought them together despite their differences.
Hall said she, Schumer, and Sykes had not received full feedback about how well they performed their hosting duties, but they sent one another texts expressing that it went great.
The Washington D.C. indigen noted that many other incidents occurred that night, but she is grateful that she and her co-hosts could enjoy their duties.
Hall also uses faith to help her navigate her dating life. She revealed that she does not use dating apps and prefers a relationship to happen naturally rather than seeking it.
The 51-year-old is currently not seeing anyone and dished that her relationships usually happen when she meets a guy while out or through a friend. She added that technology is “so individual.”
Hall sees her faith as a “smarter guidance” while she navigates her romantic life and credits it for saving her from poor personal decisions.
She said, “Even if things feel incredibly uncomfortable, that life is where it is, and maybe now I can’t see it, but maybe in time, I’ll be like, ‘Ah, I get it.’ I know that because I have many ex-boyfriends. If I had my wishes, I’d be six divorces later.”

The ‘Master’ Actress Talks Receiving Advice From Whoopi Goldberg Before Oscars
Before taking to the stage at the 94th Academy Awards, Hall sought advice from veteran Whoopi Goldberg who has hosted the famous event a whopping four times.
Last month, The Blast disclosed that the NAACP Award winner became more excited about her gig with Schumer and Sykes at the Oscars after receiving a word of motivation from the “Sister Act” lead.
Hall was full of praises for Goldberg while speaking to Entertainment Tonight ahead of the ceremony.
She credited Goldberg for being full of generosity and revealed her advice, saying, “the biggest thing [she said] was to have fun and celebrate why you’re there. Celebrate the nominees, the movies, the films, and keep the show moving.”
Although Goldberg’s suggestions weren’t new to the younger entertainer, Hall remained impressed by her words because she understood that having a good time was critical.
The “Scary Movie” series star also spoke about her friendship with the other comedic actresses and co-hosts for the event. She gushed that collaborating with them was nothing short of a fantastic experience.

Hall explained that she and the dynamic duo planned to create a “fun and celebratory night of movies” that would leave a lasting mark on the audience.
“It’s historical, you know, to have three women [hosting], and it’s Women’s History Month, so we are like, ‘This is all coming together,'” she gushed. “It’s a fun time, and it’s also interesting to see how great their minds are, you know?”
The TV personality joked about their differences, saying that there would be “three different kinds of pots being stirred.” This meant she could not divulge who among the hosts would go the extra mile at the ceremony.
