Jada Pinkett Smith says her 16-year-old daughter Willow Smith will have to sneak into the theater to watch her new movie Girls Trip.
The 45-year-old actress stars in Girls Trip alongside Regina Hall and Queen Latifah in the R-rated comedy, which follows four besties who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Music Festival.
Despite the facts that Willow turns 17 in October, has been sexually active since her adolescence, and no longer lives with her parents, Jada believes the film isn’t suitable for Willow to watch.
Instead, Jada says she encouraged her teenage daughter to catch the movie on the down low.
“I told Willow, ‘Now, you’re gonna have to do what I had to do as a teenager when I wasn’t supposed to be watching certain rated R movies, and that is not tell my mother and sneak in with my girlfriends,'” Jada said during an appearance at AOL’s Build Series on Monday.
She added: “She wanted to go to the premiere and I said, ‘Oh no, we won’t be doing that’. Jaden and Trey — my boys are grown so they’ll do whatever.”
Jaden is 19, while Trey, 24, is Jada’s husband Will’s son from his first marriage to Sheree Zampino.
Jada also stopped by ABC Studios in New York to appear on The View with co-stars Regina Hall, Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish on Monday.
