Jada Pinkett Smith remembers a thing or two about young love – and is willing to share some words of wisdom for a lasting marriage with the recently engaged Miley Cyrus.



"Learn how to be friends, especially when you are starting that young," the Madagascar 3 star says is some of the advice she would give 19-year old Cyrus, who on May 31 became engaged to Liam Hemsworth, 22.

Pinkett Smith, in New York for the premiere of her movie, was also on hand Friday to share "mommy-talk" and advice with mom bloggers at The MOMS, a multiplatform lifestyle brand, and Capri Sun Super V Mamarazzi's event in Times Square. 



"Forever is a long time," Pinkett Smith, 40, says of being in a lasting relationship. "When you are starting forever at 19 years old, and it is not to say that there is anything wrong with that, but it is just to know that what it is now and what it will be, it is just going to continue to transform and change."

Ben Stiller, David Schwimmer Get Photo-Bombed in Cannes

It was a reunion of old (and news) pals when Ben Stiller, Jada Pinkett, Chris Rock and David Schwimmer gathered for the photo call for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted at the Carlton Hotel in Cannes.

"Schwim," Rock (who plays Marty the zebra) yelled when arriving at the same time as his Melman the giraffe costar. But it was Stiller who unknowingly doubled up on "Schwim" as his Alex the lion character photo-bombed the two as they made their way down the Croisette.

Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow's Mellow, Mother-Daughter Movie Day

Originally posted 04/24/2012 05:55AM

Jada Pinkett Smith and daughter Willow headed out to the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sunday afternoon to support filmmaker pal Bess Kargman at the premiere of the ballet documentary, First Position.

Willow was clad in a black and tan leather motorcycle jacket, worn over a print T-shirt and dark leggings with combat boots. The singer capped off her rock 'n' roll look with a pink mini-mohawk.

Although the mother-daughter duo didn't do any interviews, posing for photos must have worn Willow out, because according to an onlooker, "She looked bored and sleepy as she waited for her mom to catch up inside the theatre lobby."

Once inside the theatre, the Smith women kept a seemingly low profile, as they were joined by a couple of unrecognizable guests – one of whom complimented Jada on her appearance.

"Before the screening, Willow kept mostly quiet, while her mom chatted with one of the guests," the source says. "Willow checked her phone once when they first sat down, but otherwise kept it in her pocket. On a few occasions, Jada leaned in to whisper to Willow and kissed her twice on the cheek, but as the lights dimmed, Willow shyly pulled away."
