Number 44: Jada Pinkett Smith

Why you know her: Fans of the Bill Cosby spinoff show will remember her as Lena James on "A Different World," but she's also known for the voice of Gloria on "Madagascar," Niobe on "The Matrix Revolution" and her TV show "Hawthorne" Why we love her: She's married to rapper/actor Will Smith but has a love for rock with her band Wicked Wisdom. She can act, dance and is the free-spirited mother of child actors Willow and Jaden Smith.
