Personal Quote:

[on the martial arts training for The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003)] "I saw Keanu (Reeves) sitting in a tub of ice. And I'm looking at him like 'You're in that for...' and he's looking at me like 'You'll know one day.'" See more »

Trivia:

She attended Baltimore's School of Arts at the same time as Tupac Shakur, where they became close friends. They made a video together at the amusement park King's Dominion, where they lip-synced to Will Smith's & DJ Jazzy Jeff's "Parents Just Don't Understand." Tupac acts like an MC, and Jada acts like a dancer. See more »
