"Sometimes you get upset, especially when people are cruel, but there hasn't really been anything that could get Will and I really off our rockers."

Jada Pinkett Smith made a name for herself on TV's 'A Different World,' 'Menace II Society' and playing the love interest in 'The Nutty Professor,' but the 'Madagascar' films might be her biggest role (literally) to date.

Pinkett Smith provides the voice of Gloria, the hippo with a heart of gold, for the movie's sequel, 'Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa,' with her daughter Willow voicing baby Gloria. Gloria and the gang -- Alex (Ben Stiller), Marty (Chris Rock) and Melman, the world's only hippo-loving giraffe (David Schwimmer) -- make an unscheduled stop on their way back to New York City and discover they've got a lot to learn about where they came from.

Pinkett Smith opens up to Moviefone about what she loves about playing large-and-in-charge Gloria, why her kids with hubby Will Smith don't even receive an allowance and which of those pesky tabloid rumors bothers her the most.
