LOS ANGELES, May 8 (UPI) -- Jada Pinkett Smith addressed the controversial photo that finds her 13-year-old daughter Willow Smith in bed with actor Moises Arias, 20, while speaking to paparazzi at LAX Wednesday.

"Here's the deal," Pinkett-Smith said when asked about the photo. "There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation."

"You guys are projecting your trash onto it," she continued. "You're acting like covert pedophiles and that's not cool."

The picture, in which Willow appears laying in a bed with a shirtless Arias, was widely criticized after the former Hannah Montana actor shared it on Instagram. He later deleted the photo form the image sharing site, but left it on his website 490tx.com.
