(Newser) – Jada Pinkett Smith is apparently totally cool with her 13-year-old daughter lounging around in bed with a shirtless 20-year-old guy. TMZ caught an angry Mama Smith at the LA airport yesterday, where she explained her take on the controversial photo of daughter Willow with actor Moises Arias: "Here's the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you're acting like covert pedophiles, and that's not cool."

Arias is Willow's brother, Jaden's, "best friend and that has been true for a few years," a source tells Hollywood Life, calling the photo "extremely innocent." Arias "has been friends with the family forever as well and this in no way was meant to look or feel sexual." Dad Will is also OK with the picture, if TMZ's sources—who are reportedly "connected to the Smith family"—are to be believed. Will and Jada think Willow is "very mature" and can make her own decisions, for the most part. In the case of this picture, they see it as—TMZ's words—"an expression of art." Click to see the picture and decide for yourself.
