Notes

Not to be confused with the Caucasian erotic actress of the same name.

Hall on playing a stripper in "The Best Man": "My girlfriend said, 'You can't dance. Just turn around and show your ass and slap it, and they won't notice.'"---quoted in Interview, February 2000.

Hall says she is 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 featured in the article, "The New School" in Essence, 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 Premiere, November 2003.
