The Bad Moms star, 45, hits the road with Queen Lat­i­fah, Regina Hall and Tif­fany Had­dish in Girls Trip, open­ing July 21. The life­long friends travel to New Or­leans to re­dis­cover their wild sides. With four fe­male roles in the film, why did you end up as Lisa, the most prac­ti­cal? I like to take on very chal­leng­ing roles. I never like to do the same thing twice. So Lisa, for me, was per­fect. Do you have a cir­cle of women friends like the Girls Trip group in your real life? Yes, I do. I have quite a few fe­male friends. We have re­ally beau­ti­ful times to­gether.

You and Will Smith have been mar­ried for 20 years. Does it work be­cause you were friends first? I think that friend­ship has to be the foun­da­tion of ev­ery re­la­tion­ship. I don’t know if it’s the thing that makes it work, but it’s the thing that makes it work for us.

What do you feel is your big­gest achieve­ment? Motherhood is the most im­por­tant job I’ve had on this planet and it’s some­thing that never stops. Will and I have done a hell of a job lay­ing a foun­da­tion for Jaden, who’s 19, and Wil­low, who’s 16, and I’m very proud of them. I’d say that I made a pretty awe­some con­tri­bu­tion to this planet. I al­ways thought it would be some­thing else, but it’s Wil­low and

Jaden.
