The Beautiful and Talented Regina King Covers Essence Magazine

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bangers, Congratulations, For the Fellas

She’s been makin’ moves in this the entertainment buisness for almost 30 years now, from acting to epic voice-overs (She plays BOTH Huey and Riley in the hit cartoon The Boondocks. This month, Regina King sits with Essence to talk about her personal life.

“Malcolm and I have a lot in common… we’ve both been child actors and were also blessed to be raised by incredible mothers who instilled good values in us. Things are maturing nicely…” –Regina King

Twenty-six years after she first charmed us on “227,” Hollywood “go-to girl” Regina King still knows how to play it right. Here, she talks to ESSENCE about having what really matters — a successful career, her commitment to raising her 15-year-old son, and a romance with fellow actor and “Cosby Show” alum Malcolm-Jamal Warner. See how she’s living a full life on her own terms…

Play on playa. Nothing but love for you over on this side.
