Actress Regina Hall reveals that she almost became a NUN when she was 14 and then again back in 2010.
I was in Catholic school my whole life, and it felt natural, the actress shared with FADER. Maybe I was a nun in a past life. It felt familiar. I loved the sisters and I loved the priests. I didn’t have any shady priests, thankfully. But 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.Embed from Getty Images
“I find that my happiest places are when I’m in a really spiritual place.”
When I was older, I wanted to do it because I find that my happiest places are when I’m in a really spiritual place. It’s almost like the rest of the world becomes background. I thought, What a great life. How could I ever be sad if I’m always in prayer? But I was too old. [Laughs] Every sect has different rules and this particular one I was interested in, their idea was that this wasn’t a Plan B. It’s not, life’s not going good so I wanna be a nun. Some of them limit you by the number of partners you’ve had — but I couldn’t join those either.
Regina told the site that she was surprised that she couldn’t be a NUN.
“I was more surprised. Like, That’s not the road? I just thought I’d be so happy if I was a nun. I was doing a lot of prayer and meditation and I was like, If this is all I have to do, this would be great. There was another girl with me who was too old, and we were both like, “Oh, wow.” [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][td_block_ad_box spot_id=”sidebar”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
