VIDEO: Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals the Trick to Keeping Her Marriage Going

The Madagascar 3 star dishes to iVillage about keeping the romance alive and how daughter Willow has her own "personal swag"


Jada Pinkett Smith may look sweet -- but if she had to join the circus (like her character does in Madagascar 3, in theaters June 8), she'd be the one manning the whip!

"I'm good with the whip," the actress, 40, tells iVillage exclusively. "I'd be the lion tamer or the ring master."

And costar David Schwimmer, 45, agrees. "She'd be the one bossing everyone around," he quips.

But Pinkett Smith's whip skills also come in handy outside of the circus. When iVillage asked her how she keeps her 15-year marriage with Will Smith going strong, she replied: "My whip -- that's my trick!"

Watch our exclusive video interview to find out why the actress says daughter Willow's unique fashion sense is "her personal swag," and why becoming a dad has changed Schwimmer's perspective on the family-friendly Madagascar franchise.
