VIDEO: Chris Rock & Ben Stiller: Our Kids Don't Think We're Cool

The Madagascar 3 costars interview each other for iVillage, from what their kids think of their animated roles to whether they're sick of working together


We have to admit that we think Chris Rock and Ben Stiller are pretty darn cool. Unfortunately, their kids may not agree. The hilarious costars, who lend their voices to zoo animals in the animated film Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted (in theaters June 8), tell iVillage that starring in the family-friendly franchise hasn't exactly earned them any cool points with their little ones.

"I think I'm cooler to their friends," says Rock, who has two daughters (Lola, 9, and Zahra, 8) with wife Malaak Compton-Rock.

Same goes for Stiller. "Yes, I get reports that they say their friends think I'm cool," says the 46-year-old actor, who has two kids (Ella, 10, and Quinlin, 6) with wife Christine Taylor. "But they don't give it up for me."

When the costars interviewed each other for iVillage, they also revealed (jokingly!) that they're getting a little tired of working together. "I'm a little sick of you," says Rock, 47. "Your hair. Your hair is really getting to me."

Watch our exclusive video interview to find out what Stiller misses most when he's away from home and what Rock thinks is his costar's best physical feature.
