Kat Graham Says Jada Pinkett-Smith Showed Her Support For Role
Kat Graham walked the carpet at the iHeart Radio Much Music Awards in Toronto this weekend and addressed Jada Pinkett Smith’s recent comments about the “All Eyez On Me” biopic. Graham plays Pinkett in the film. Pinket said Friday that the film was deeply hurtful to her.
Graham told E!News that Jada had previously offered her support on the role.
Graham confessed, “When I first got the role, I reached out to [Pinkett Smith] a year and a half ago…the point of reaching out to her, as well as the other producers on the film, was to insure the integrity of the story and the character.”
The Swiss-born actress added, “I even spoke to her last week and she had nothing but support.”
Graham said of the comments, “I have a lot of love for her. I hope people just see the movie and make the choice for themselves.”
Are you surprised that Jada didn’t have issues with the film before? Have you seen All Eyez on Me yet?
While Jada had harsh words for the film, she did lavish praises on Kat and costar Demetrius Shipp.
