Jada Pinkett Smith Responds to Willow’s ‘Dirty’ Photo, Explains How Will Smith is “More” Than a Husband
The 42-year-old actress divulged her very honest (and very contentious) opinion about the photo of her daughter Willow, 13, lying in bed with a shirtless 20-year-old guy Moises Arias during a recent interview with high-end shopping site Net-a-Porter… And let’s just say, you don’t want to cross her path on this one.
“Just don’t pollute something that’s not dirty,” she says, shaking her head in blasphemy. “It’s really tough. I feel like the connection to the value of women on a bigger scale has decreased tremendously. Even though you look and go, ‘Women have so many opportunities,’ It’s like, ‘Yeah, but at what cost?’
She continued, explaining that the generation of children today are much different than their parents and will continue to be so.
“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’re trying to fix things that happened to us or projecting [onto them], and that’s a terrible, terrible trap.”
“We used to have all these rules, [but] as you go on in your relationship, you just get into a flow,” she says. “The thing I love is being in a place where it’s just like, Will, to me, encompasses everything. It’s almost as if calling him ‘my husband’ is too small of a word for what he means in my life–and especially how I feel we, as women, identify the idea of a husband.”
Quite an interesting way to view marriage… But we’re kind of diggin’ it!
