Jada Pinkett Smith was overcome with emotion while discussing her experience in the 1996 movie Set It Off.
In the movie, Smith plays Lida “Stony” Newsom, a woman who escapes to Mexico after attempting a bank robbery with her three friends. Lida becomes the lone survivor when all her friends are killed after the robbery. She then cuts her hair when she escapes to Mexico, Atlanta Black Star reports.
“That particular scene, I had already had so much loss and I had already, like, lost so many friends, and so I really reflected on those that I loved that I had lost, you know, and how everybody doesn’t make it and how you can be sitting with great fortune and have so much loss, have so much pain,” the actress said while looking back at her character's emotional scene.
