Jada Pinkett Smith Breaks Down In Tears While Slamming ‘Disrespectful’ 2Pac Biopic — Watch
Jada Pinkett-Smith is currently making the promotion rounds to build up buzz for her upcoming film, Girls Trip. And she is was once again asked about her opinions of the recently-released Tupac biopic, All Eyez on Me

Guess what? She is still not a fan. Like, at all.

"I wanted people to know that what you're seeing in regards to my relationship with Tupac is not true, and that was important to me because my relationship was really special and, um, it was very complicated and, um, I just felt like it was a huge disservice," she said. 

That is pretty intense. 

The actress then explained that she felt that an accurate, real portrayal of her real relationship with the rapper would have shed a bit of light on Tupac and "what he truly was, because it's one thing to see Pac's persona publicly and who he was personally."

"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 in regards to Pac," she continued. Oof.
She also had some thoughts for the film’s production team. She stated, "If you're really saying that you're honoring a man's legacy, then honor his legacy, and if you don't have the story, fall back until you do."

"If you really feel like you did right by Pac, then congratulations. But if you didn't, really sit with that. 'Cause I hope next time, if you get another opportunity to make another movie about a legend, you'll do a different thing."

Watch her response for yourself. This topic pops up around the 18-minute mark. 


To his credit, the director of the picture did have some promising insights, though Jada doesn’t seem to think that these were translated to the end-product.
