Willow Smith Will Smith Jaden Smith Moises Arias

Jada Smith has reacted to a photograph her daughter Willow, aged 13, took whilst on a bed with a 20-year-old actor. The image was posted on actor Moises Arias’ Instagram account and showed Willow lying fully clothed on a bed whilst a shirtless Moises held a pillow behind his head whilst leaning on a wall. The picture has since been deleted due to the comments the image provoked on Twitter.

Willow Smith caused a minor scandal last week when Moises Arias posted a picture of the two on a bed.

Jada spoke to photographers awaiting her arrival at LAX. As TMZ reports, Jada said she was furious with the response from the press which has implied there was a sexual element to the picture. She said “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you’re acting like covert paedophiles, and that’s not cool.”

Jada Pinkett-Smith Takes A "Pot And Kettle" Approach To Willow's Critics


Jada Pinkett-Smith Willow Smith

While the internet is still in a twist about Willow Smiths recent photo with a 20-year-old actor – he’s shirtless, they’re both lounging on a bed, so naturally, the controversy rages on – Jada Pinkett-Smith just doesn’t see what all the fuss is about. TMZ recently caught up with 13-year-old Willow Smith’s mother, and she had something to say about anyone suggesting that the picture was sexual.

Jada Pinkett-Smith
Jada remained calm and remarkably eloquent during the unexpected barage of questions. 

“There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation,” Jada said in her most calm and collected tone to TMZ’s cameras at LAX. “You guys are projecting your trash onto it and you’re acting like covert pedophiles.”

The Willow Smith Picture Debate: Inappropriate or Innocent?


Willow Smith

A picture of Will Smith’s 13 year old daughter Willow on a bed with 20 year old ‘Hannah Montana’ actor Moises Arias has sparked controversy throughout the internet for a variety of reasons. Some are branding the picture thoroughly inappropriate and calling Will and his wife Jada’s parenting into question. Others think we all need to relax, after all there’s nothing actually ‘going on’ in the picture. Inappropriate or innocent, how has one picture managed to create so many thousands of words?

Willow SmithWillow Smith

The picture in question, which was posted to Instagram by Moises Arias and subsequently deleted, is a black and white shot which shows the pair laying on a bed. Arias is shirtless, sitting up with his back against the wall, whist Willow is laying further down on the bed, fully clothed with her head resting on her arms. It looks like the kind of ‘arty’ picture that might feature in any magazine editorial or fashion advert. What makes it problematic is that Willow is just 13 whilst Arias is 20.

Will And Jada Pinkett-Smith Step Up To Defend Willow's Questionable Instagram Shot With 20-Year-Old Actor


Willow Smith Moises Arias Will Smith Jada Pinkett-Smith

After a picture of 13-year-old Willow Smith, lounging on a bed next to 20-year-old actor Moises Arias hit the web, gossip blogs practically exploded. Speculation is rampant on what the relationship between the two is and whether or not it’s appropriate for the Whip My Hair performer to pose in such a suggestive manner at her age. As far as Willow’s parents – Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith – are concerned, she hasn’t done anything out of line. According to the ever trustworthy anonymous “sources” for TMZ, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith believe their daughter is "very mature" - enough so to make her own decisions, as long as they don't clearly cross the line.

Willow might be very mature for her age... but she's still only 13.

Apparently Willow’s folks view the photo as “harmless fun” and “an expression of art.”

The two were photographed in a photo booth set up for the wrap party of their upcoming film Focus. The photographs show the two joking around, lifting their tops and posing at the camera. The whole situation has been taken out of context and a number of media outlets have used the photographs as evidence of Smith's alleged infidelity. However, sources speaking to Us Weekly, have said Smith and Robbie are "not hooking up." Another source has stated the photographs were taken in "a photo booth on set that the producers got for everyone. It was the last day of filming and everyone was taking pictures. They were just goofing around. Will is just like that. There's nothing more to it."

Will Smith & His Kids' Faces Of Horror During Miley Cyrus MTV VMAs Performance


Miley Cyrus Will Smith Willow Smith Jaden Smith Robin Thicke

Miley Cyrus didn't win any awards at Sunday night's MTV music video awards ceremony in Brooklyn and she was just one of loads of performers helping raise the roof at the annual celebration of musical artistry. However, her performance - of her No.1 hit 'We Can't Stop' and 'Blurred Lines' with Robin Thicke - helped secure Miley as the most talked about live act of the night.

Miley's VMAs Performance Provoked Plenty Of Horror.

It wasn't her music per say; by now we're used to her post-Hannah Montana drawl and themes of entitled hedonism. Rather it was her outfits, dancing and facial expression that provoked a roomful of eye-popping and jaw-dropping. She emerged from the chest of a giant bear and without a moment's pause, began to grind and twerk before entering into a rendition of 'We Can't Stop' whilst the 'bear-people' - as seen in the track's eyebrow-raising video - bobbed about whilst being twerked on by Miley.
