Bonus Trivia

.

She was not to be confused with the Caucasian erotic actress of the same name.

.

Hall said she was inspired by actress Alfre Woodard: "She played my mother in 'Love and Basketball.' She's a very generous actor. Her biggest tip was, 'Take your time when you're getting ready for a scene, and don't let anyone rush you.' Working with her was sheer joy." – Hall quoted in Essence magazine, April 2001

.

"It's definitely different in the industry for a black woman. I always beg my agents to start pitching me as a white man. And they say, 'Okay, we'll try.' When they were making all those karate movies like 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon,' I was like, 'Make me an Asian man.'" – Hall to Premiere magazine, November 2003
