Looks like there’s a few bumps in the road on this promo trail…
This past week, actress/director and producer, Jada Pinkett -Smith, visited the V103-Atlanta radio station to promote her upcoming movie, “Girl’s Trip” alongside her comedic co-star Regina Hall and the film’s director Will Packer. During the conversation, the three talked about their hilarious forthcoming film and it’s many must-see moments. However, things took a sudden turn when Jada was asked about her opinions about the on-screen portrayal of she and Tupac’s relationship in the recently released film,“All Eyez On Me.”
The “Set it Off” star previously has been quite vocal about the film’s many inaccuracies, when it comes to her bond with the late rapper. Smith even took to social media to address the movie’s imprecision and her implicit disappoint by even calling out one scene in particular.
—During her interview, when asked about her comments, Jada took the opportunity to further elaborate her feelings about the box office hit, and boy… did she ever!
Hit the 17:34 mark after the jump:
Dang, she went INNNNN— and hit heart a few heart strings along the way too!
As many of us know, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tupac were long time childhood friends, as both of them have described – – in the past- – like “brother and sister.” So ,we can definitely understand her frustration at even the slightest implication that their relationship was anything more than what it was, because as is, it was more than special enough.
It is “exploitative,” but seemingly so is all of show business….“Girl’s Trip” hit theaters next Friday July 21st, Will you be watching?
