Jada Pinkett Smith told reporters that a recent photo of her 13-year-old daughter and a 20-year-old shirtless family friend on a bed togather was not sexual in nature, and that the media was "projecting your trash" onto the situation.

Willow Smith, the singing daughter of Hollywood celebrities Will and Jada, caused a stir when her friend Moises Arias, 20, co-star of "Hannah Montana" opposite Miley Cyrus, posted an Instagram photo of them hanging out on a bed. The two are not touching, however Arias is inexplicably shirtless.

When confronted on the way to catch a flight by reporters from TMZ, Jada seemed irritated, and decided to make a statement in response to their questions about the photo.

"Here's the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation," she said wagging her finger. "You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you're acting like covert pedophiles, and that's not cool."

Arias and Willow Smith have not commented themselves, but Yahoo Celebrity reports that a source close to Arias said the two have been longtime friends, and that Willow is "like a sister" to him.

This is not the first time young Willow has been criticized by the media and her fans for acting older than she really is. Last year many spoke out against Willow's "Summer Fling" video, which many said had too many allusions to sex for a song sung by a then-12-year-old. She is also known to hang out with the older Jenner sisters, Kylie, 16, and Kendall, 18, and her older brother's friends like Arias.

Last year, Will Smith told reporters that he and Jada give their kids long leashes.

"The way that we deal with our kids is, they are responsible for their lives," he said. "Our concept is, as young as possible, give them as much control over their lives as possible and the concept of punishment, our experience has been — it has a little too much of a negative quality."
