Jada Pinkett Smith says there was nothing sexual about the photo of her 13-year-old daughter on a bed with a shirtless 20-year-old actor Moises Arias.

Well ... duh. Who would even think of associating a 13-year-old with (presumably) raging hormones on a bed with a half naked 20-year-old guy? Can we please just stop assuming things about attractive young people wanting to have sex with each other? Because they don't ... or there would be reality shows about young women becoming mothers.

The picture -- posted on Arias' Tumblr and Instagram accounts -- made the Internet explode Wednesday.

"Here's the deal," Pinkett Smith told paparazzi Thursday, as she arrived at LAX. "There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation."

Uh-huh. That's right. What else?

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

Right ... they're acting like covert pedophiles ... not the man in bed with the child. Just knock it off, you adult paparazzi pedophile people.

A "family source" told TMZ that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith believe their daughter is "very mature," enough that she can make her own decisions, as long as they don't clearly cross the line.

The couple apparently believes the photo was ... wait for it ... an expression of art.

Of course, it was.
