Melissa McCarthy and Regina Hall Play 'How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star?'

The stars of 'Nine Perfect Strangers' quiz each other on random personal trivia to see who got to know whom better while they were filming the new Hulu drama.

It's a good thing for audiences that Regina Hall became an actress. (Can you imagine Girls Trip or Scary Movie without the funnywoman?!) But she almost didn't. In fact, as castmate Melissa McCarthy (opens in new tab) reveals (correctly guesses?) in the latest episode of Marie Claire's 'How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star?,' Hall attempted to join a convent. Yep, at 40 she wanted to give it all up and become a nun. And that's just one of the unexpected professional aspirations divulged during the course of the game.

Though the pair were together to promote the mysterious new Hulu drama Nine Perfect Strangers (out today), neither left their comedy chops at the door. McCarthy has Hall (and us) in stitches with her attempts at an Aussie accent (the show filmed down under) and Hall will have viewers seriously surprised at her celebrity crush. McCarthy was pretty shocked too. As Hall observes: "These aren't the sorts of questions we asked in Australia."

Hall and McCarthy—along with Nicole Kidman, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Shannon, Grace Van Patten, and more Hollywood stars—spent five months shooting the adaptation of Liane Moriarty's best-seller (opens in new tab) about a weird wellness retreat with an even weirder (and perhaps darker) leader.
