Willow Smith pulled a Miley Cyrus on Wednesday when a photo of the 13-year-old star lying in bed with a shirtless 20-year-old, Hannah Montana star Moises Arias, caused an outrage online. But the tween's famous parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are standing up for their daughter, saying Willow is "very mature" and old enough to decide who she hangs out with.
A source close to the Smith family tells TMZ that the A-list duo believes the pic is just "innocent fun." Arias is a long-time friend of the Smith family, the source adds, and is Jaden Smith's BFF.
When TMZ caught up with Jada last night, the actress, appearing extremely frustrated by the controversy, 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 pedophiles — and that's not cool."
