Jada Pinkett Smith is still upset over her portrayal in Tupac Shakur’s biopic All Eyez on Me. The famed actress/producer spoke with Atlanta’s V 103 and had an emotional response to host Ryan Cameron’s inquiry about her previous comments regarding the film.
“I wanted people to know that what you’re seeing in regards to my relationship with Tupac is not true […] I just felt like it was a huge disservice,” she said. “I thought it was just handled in a very disrespectful way, and I felt like it was exploitative of me and ‘Pac, how they used our relationship to sell a movie, and I just felt like it was tomb-raiding […]” she added.
Jada Pinkett Smith’s new film, Girls Trip, co-starring Regina Hall, Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish will hit theaters on July 21st.
