Actress and producer Jada Pinkett Smith dropped by Huff Post Live to chat about the new film she produced, "Free Angela And All Political Prisoners," her marriage to Will Smith and raising children in Hollywood.

When asked how she would respond if either of her children, Jaden or Willow, both stars themselves, came out as gay, she answered, "I would support [them]. For me, I just want my kids to be happy. As long as they're happy... As long as they're living the lives that fulfill them, I'm good."

Pinkett Smith isn't the first celebrity parent to speak out on offering support to gay children -- potential or actual. Magic Johnson's gay son, Earvin Johnson III, was seen with his unidentified boyfriend for the first time on Monday, April 1. Magic and his wife, Earlitha "Cookie" Kelly, told TMZ "[We] love EJ and support him in every way... We're very proud of him."
