Jada Pinkett Smith won’t be allowing her 16-year-old daughter Willow to watch her new film Girls Trip… well, not really!
The 45-year-old actress and her co-star Regina Hall stopped by Build Series to promote the comedy on Monday (July 17) in New York City.
“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,’” she explained. “I said, ‘I think this is one of those movies for you.’”
“She wanted to go to the premiere and I said, ‘Oh no, we won’t be doing that,’” Jada went on. “Jaden and Trey… my boys are grown so they’ll do whatever.”
She added, “Even though [Girls Trip] stars four African American women, it really is about sisterhood for all women. The themes are so universal – friendship, watching women come together when were going through tough times, and coming together to have a good time… you what I mean, a really good time! Usually, women aren’t given the same license as men to cut loose and just have fun.
