Jada Pinkett Smith: Don't Pollute Willow Smith-Moises Arias Bed Photo!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The typically light-hearted Jada Pinkett Smith is not in a joking mood about that infamous photo of daughter Willow Smith and Moises Arias in bed together.

It's not Willow who upset her, though. It's the web's collective reaction.

In an interview with the website Net-a-Porter, Jada was asked about the controversial pic of her 13-year-old girl and her 20-year-old actor friend.

"Just don't pollute something that's not dirty," Pinkett Smith says, reiterating her earlier position that Internet users are all pedophiles for reading into this.

"It's really tough. I feel like the connection to the value of women on a bigger scale has decreased tremendously," she mused of what she feels is a broader issue.

"Men and women encompass both feminine and masculine energies, but it seems like when the feminine is present, it's not respected [on the same level]."

"Even though you look and go, ‘Women have so many opportunities,' it's like, ‘Yeah, but at what cost?' Are women valued for being women, or valued when they have more masculine qualities?"

It's an interesting question the mother of two raises, in a roundabout way.

Pinkett Smith, who reportedly had no issue with the photo, also noted earlier in the interview, "I want my kids to be happy and I want them to be themselves."

"I was saying to a friend the other day, ‘Remember, our kids are not us.' They're not. Sometimes we try to fix things that happened to us or projecting [onto them]."

That, Jada says, is "a terrible, terrible trap."

As for all the celebrity gossip rumors that surround her relationship with longtime husband Will Smith, Jada Smith says they don't even pay it any mind.

"The coping technique is knowing what the truth is ... there's no better technique. When you know that what's going on in your house is so the opposite [of what's being said]."

"You also know that when there's mystery, people fill in the gaps, that's OK ... you look back at it and look at how creative people can be, and it's kind of entertaining."

"We can laugh because it's so ridiculous. But I don't take it personally."

On that topic, absolutely no one can argue with her sound logic.
