Jada Pinkett-Smith happily strikes a pose with her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones while attending the U.S. premiere of Debbie Allen’s Freeze Frame held at The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday (February 4) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 44-year-old Gotham actress was also joined at the event by Shonda Rhimes, Grey’s Anatomy star James Pickens, Jr., Tony Goldwyn and his sister Liz, Mary J. Blige, Joey McIntyre, Phylicia Rashad, Maria Shriver, Dan Bucatinsky, Nigel Lythgoe, Corbin Bleu and Debbie Allen herself.

Freeze Frame will take audiences on a rollercoaster ride through some of LA’s toughest streets where gangs, poverty, violence, and drugs are an everyday reality.

“It’s like all these souls keep speaking to me and it’s like we’ve got to do something about it,” Debbie told THR. “Yeah, people should be able to have guns. But let’s do it in a safe way. Let’s be reasonable and let’s give some more education and opportunity, and help people that are in need who become desperate.”

“I chose to remove the word ‘sexy’ from my vocabulary and I replace it with ‘sexual,’” Viola explained during the event about not labeling her character Annalise as sexy.

She added, “I try to be very aware as an actor, when I am doing sexual scenes, to not to be so self-conscious about making it look good because, for everyone that’s had sex, it’s not cute. But how do you play not cute sex on network TV? It’s very uncomfortable.”

FYI: Karla is wearing a kate spade new york romper.
