Chris Rocks the Big Screen and Talks
May 6, 2005
Chris Rock is teaming up with the voices of Ben Stiller
and Jada Pinkett Smith for a tale of pampered New York
Zoo animals that end up in the wild in "Madagascar."
"Extra" got the scoop on the film, Oscar night
and Paula's alleged "Idol" affair.
Jerry Penacoli: Was part of your motivation to do "Madagascar"
for your kids?
Chris Rock: No, not really.
JP: Was it the money?
CR: I mean if they paid me $20 million to do a porno
-- that would really take care of them a little more
than this, right?
JP: But you would never do a porno, would you? Come
CR: No, no, maybe with Angelina Jolie I would. Or Paula
JP: Speaking of Paula, care to weigh in on her alleged
affair with former "Idol" contestant Corey
CR: I just wish she could choose me, I'm just jealous.
I could have paid for my own car. I could have paid
for my own cell phone. No, she's got to get this guy
bad you know, Chico DeBarge. I'm right there, I love
her. I've loved her since the '80s.
And from Paula to Oscar, how about those jokes that
Chris made about Jude Law's overexposure at the movies
JP: Sean Penn came to Jude's rescue on Oscar night,
so obviously there were some people who thought you
were kind of dissing him.
CR: I wasn't dissing. People are acting like I was talking
about Clint Eastwood or you know a legend. It's Jude
JP: So have they approached you yet for next year's
Oscars? Would you do it again?
CR: Ah, you know, if they ask, I would be honored to
do the show again.
But for now, Chris is looking to animate your kids this
summer with "Madagascar," opening May 27th.
