Jada Pinkett Smith Breaks Silence on Controversial Willow Photo


Jada Pinkett Smith is speaking out about the headline-grabbing photo of her 13-year-old daughter Willow lying in bed with shirtless 20-year-old actor Moises Arias.

"Here's the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation," the actress told TMZ's cameras Wednesday outside of Los Angeles International Airport. "You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you're acting like covert pedophiles, and that's not cool."

The photo took the internet by storm this week after Arias, best known for his role as Rico on "Hannah Montana," posted it to his 490.tx blog at the end of last month.

Arias captioned the photo "Roar."

Another photo, captioned "Simba & Nala," shows the pair striking the same pose - only Arias' expression is more serious.
