Jada Pinkett-Smith has spoken out again about her thoughts on the Tupac biopic “All Eyez On Me”. In a recent interview she said “What you’re seeing in regards to my relationship with 2Pac is not true. My relationship with Pac would have shown people a true—what he truly was. Cause it’s one thing to see Pac’s persona, publicly, and who he was personally.
She also said that she feels that her relationship with Pac was used by the creators to promote the film to the public.
I felt like it was exploitive 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. I feel like we as black people, we have got to protect those individuals that we say are important to us, to our history and to our culture. We can not expect other people to do that if we’re not willing to do that ourselves. Pac is precious to us.
Also, she said:
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 an opportunity to make another movie about a legend you’ll do a different thing.
