Regina Hall, the star of Support The Girls, just had her latest film come out last week. The Hollywood mainstay, during a chat with BET’s Melissa Murray, admitted that her role in the movie which revolves around women working in a sports bar is diametrically opposed to her character – and skill set – in real life.
In the movie, Hall commands the respect of her female employees within her position as the general manager of a restaurant. However, Hall said that her characterization in the film is not an accurate representation of reality.
According to Regina, she worked in a couple of establishments in New York City, including an Italian restaurant as well as a venue on Park Avenue South.
She wasn’t “amazing at it,” the actress remarked, and now understands the hard work servers endure. Hall praised the ability of waitresses, whom she described as “extremely organized mentally.”
As service industry workers know, waitresses and waiters have to keep a mental checklist of their clients, including what they ordered and whether or not they received their food and drinks.
Regina admitted she wasn’t the greatest at it, and many times, she forgot who got their food and who didn’t. Often, she blamed it on the kitchen, which obviously didn’t go over well with employees in the back.
Regina’s fans undoubtedly forgive her, especially because of her long and illustrious career as both a dramatic and comedic actress. She’s primarily known for her legendary appearances in the Scary Movie franchise, in which she played Brenda.
She also had a role on Ally McBeal, airing from 2001 until 2002. Some of her other movies include The Best Man, Love And Basketball, Malibu’s Most Wanted, Think Like A Man, About Last Night, and Girls Trip. Despite her tendency to avoid the spotlight, Regina has managed to forge a consistent portfolio for herself as a performer.
