Gloria Speaks! My Fun “Madagascar 3” Interview with Jada Pinkett Smith
Independent Films, Movie Reviews, Interviews, Film Profiles
When you interview people via satellite, sometimes it’s hard to find an emotional or mental connection. But not Miss Jada! Her sweetness came out live and clear and I had a great time interviewing the mom, the wife, the actress, and the rock star who’s back as the glorious Gloria for “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” co-starring with Ben Stiller, David Schwimmer, Chris Rock, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Cedric the Entertainer.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** Why she wanted to return for the third installment
*** Do her kids Jaden and Willow like the franchise?
*** It’s interesting to note that “Madagascar 3” came out two weeks after Will Smith’s “Men in Black 3”
*** How does she balance her multi-tasking life?
*** What does she want the kids to take away from “Madagascar 3?”
