Kat Graham still has nothing but love for Jada Pinkett Smith following her claimsthat many of the plot lines in All Eyez on Me are inaccurate.
The 27-year-old actress plays the role of Jada in the Tupac biopic, which is out now. “She’s been nothing but supportive and I will never be anything but supportive of her. We’re making a move about a really controversial person,” Kattold the BBC while attending the UK premiere of All Eyez On Me with co-star Demetrius Shipp Jr. on Tuesday (June 27) in London, England.
“I’d rather be part of a film that had a tonne of love and a tonne of hate rather than a film that people shrugged at and said ‘that was alright’,” Kat continued. “This is obviously not an easy film for anyone that was in Pac’s life to watch. I completely understand how difficult this must be and I’m grateful for her grace. I hope that I’m giving her that back. I hope she [Jada] knows I have her back and that I love her.”
“I tend not to focus on people who don’t feel a certain way,” Demetrius, who plays Tupac, added. “More importantly for me are the people who walked with TuPac and lived with him, who were actually family members. They’ve seen the movie, the people who were close, and they love the movie. I can’t say I don’t care about someone else’s opinion who doesn’t necessarily know him but I just say those people [the ones who knew him] mean more to me.”
