Regina Hall was born Regina Lee Hall on December 12, 1970, in Washington, D.C. Her mother, Ruby, was a teacher, and her father, Odie, worked as an electrician and contractor. Regina attended Immaculata College High School, then she earned an English degree from New York City's Fordham University in 1992. Five years later, Hall graduated from New York University with a master's degree in journalism. Shortly after Regina started graduate school, her father passed away from a stroke. She said of the tragedy, "It was sudden. And I think when sudden events that are painful happen in your life, you know, they redirect your course. When you're young, you don't grasp the gravity of life. But when you lose someone that you spend most of your life with, and you're young, you do. And so I think that started me thinking about what I really wanted to do in life." Hall decided to go into the entertainment industry, beginning with a guest appearance on the track "The Interview" on the 1996 Sadat X album "Wild Cowboys."
In 1997, Regina appeared in her first commercial and guest-starred on "New York Undercover." She made her big screen debut in 1999's "The Best Man," and the following year, she appeared in "Love & Basketball" and rose to stardom with her portrayal of Brenda Meeks in the Keenen Ivory Wayans-directed parody film "Scary Movie." The film grossed $278 million against a $19 million budget, and Hall reprised the role of Brenda in "Scary Movie 2" (2001), "Scary Movie 3" (2003), and "Scary Movie 4" (2006). She also reprised her "The Best Man" role, Candace "Candy" Sparks, in 2013's "The Best Man Holiday," and in February 2021, it was announced she would be playing Candy again in the Peacock limited series "The Best Man: The Final Chapters."

Regina's mother was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease scleroderma around 2004, and Hall donated to the Scleroderma Research Foundation and began raising awareness about the disease. In a 2010 interview with "Ability Magazine," Hall revealed that she had been volunteering at a convalescent home in Sherman Oaks, working with seniors two days a week. She stated, "I think there should be a lot of respect paid to the lives they've lived and the lessons they've learned. I learn something from them all of the time. One of the nicest things about it is that the people I help don't know I'm an actress at all. They just have a lot of joy that I come and spend time with them." At age 40, Regina attempted to become a Catholic nun while going through a bad break-up, but she was one year older than the cut-off age. She told "The Fader" that she first wanted to become a nun as a teenager in Catholic school, saying, "When I was 14, I really loved the nuns. They ran our school and were so smart. They didn't have to worry about what to wear. I loved their little quiet time in prayer. It felt serene. I remember they were having a number of young girls join the convent, and I was like, 'I would like that.'"
