Taking Her Daughter To Work

You can't be mad at Jada Pinkett Smith.

You can't be mad at Jada Pinkett Smith. She hooked her baby up, and I don't mean Will.

Pinket Smith who will once again lend her voice to the Madagascar sequel, "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa," will be working with her daugher Willow Smith for the first time. Willow, actually made her film debut with her dad, Will Smith, in "I Am Legend" and was one of the stars of the "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl" flick. She will provide the voice of young Gloria, the character her  mom plays as an adult.

Her mom told WENN that she couldn't be prouder.

"It was so cute because she'd been asking, 'How does that work? How does the animation thing work? Mommy, what happens?' So, it was great when I got the phone call saying, 'Would Willow like to play little Gloria?' My character as a child?' She got to come in and do some lines."

Pinkett Smith's costar, Ben Stiller, also hooked up his kids Quinlin and Ella, with small parts. The film comes out in November and also features the late Bernie Mac, Cedric the Entertainer, Chris Rock, Will.i.am and Tiny Lister.
