Jada Pinkett Smith is speaking out about the headline-making photo of daughter Willow Smith and actor Moises Arias.
A photo of Willow, 13, and a shirtless Moises, 20, laying in the same bed caused an online frenzy this week, but Jada slammed the notion that anything inappropriate was at play.
“Here’s the deal: there was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation,” the “Gotham” actress told paparazzi while at LAX on Wednesday night.
Adding, “You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you’re acting like covert pedophiles, and that’s not cool.”
The photo first appeared on Moises’ blog last month. Moises starred as Rico on “Hannah Montana.”
