Obviously, the four-time Emmy award winner has achieved what she hoped for and is now considered one of Hollywood's most influential actresses.
Watching the video, Regina King was surprised and pointed out how she looked like her son.

In addition, the "Watchmen" actress spoke about her accomplishments in years in Hollywood.
"I think so. I think so and beyond. I think that that, you know, young lady that I'm looking at right now never saw that this couldn't have been a possibility. So, yeah," King added.
