Regina Hall and Sanaa Lathan could easily pass for sisters in a recent selfie from an industry event, but beyond taking adorable pictures, the longtime friends are known to always stand up for each other.
The NAACP Image Awards took place at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Saturday, and among the top celebrities and famous faces in attendance were Hall, 48, and her best friend from way back, Lathan, 47.
Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the “Brown Sugar” star shared a series of pictures from the event, including a selfie of herself and Hall.
Hall famously stood up for Lathan amid the “biting” controversy
Both women looked glamorous in their trendy hairstyles and full makeup, and with their faces only inches apart, one could easily assume they’re sisters.
Although they may not be blood relatives, Lathan and Hall share a friendship that reportedly goes way back and blossoms till this day.
Last June, when the “Girls Trip” actress was to be recognized with the highest honor at the “Step Up Inspiration Awards,” Lathan was there to offer much-needed support and even penned a heartwarming shout-out on social media.
“Had the pleasure of honoring my bestie @morereginahall today at the Step Up inspiration awards,” she gushed, adding:
“It’s an amazing organization that propels girls living or going to school in under-resourced communities to fulfill their potential by empowering them to become confident, college-bound, career-focused, and ready to join the next generation of professional women. So proud of you Regina you inspire me and so many others. Love u and congratulations!”
“Thank you to my bestie/sister @sanaalathan for presenting me with the award,” Hall responded in an Instagram post of her own. “I was touched by your beautiful speech.”
In March, Hall famously stood up for Lathan amid the “biting” controversy that erupted after comedian Tiffany Haddish claimed the latter bit “Everything Is Love” superstar, Beyoncé.
“Let me tell you something: I could tap your leg with my foot, and Tiffany would retell it as me kicking you,” Hall said in an interview with The New York Times. “She’s a comedian. She can make a story, know what I mean? That whole thing took on a life of its own.”
Earlier this year, the duo also turned heads at the Essence Awards, Lathan with her long braids and pristine white dress, and Hall with soft, wavy hair and a stunning pink outfit.
Hall recently made history as the first black woman to win “Best Actress” at the New York Film Critics Circle Award, a win she bagged for her role in the 2018 movie, “Support The Girls.”
