With beauty oozing off the page screaming like a marquee: “Yes, my mom and dad were in love when I was conceived,” save the “girl I’ll drink your bathwater” pickup line and instead, pick up television and rock royalty’s heir-Zoe Kravitz-blessing the cover and pages of Ocean Drive magazine in all [the typically Bohemian chic] star’s sexy splendor!
If you didn’t get a glimpse (or enough of) Zoe and her forever gorgeous mom Lisa Bonet on the post Oscars Vanity Fair Party carpet, I’ll go on and fix what you missed.
We see, but don’t often hear from Zoe, so enjoy reading a little more about what she’s been up to and what projects she has coming up and out:
On creating and loving it even before she realized who her parents were to the rest of the world:
“It’s always what I’ve done, before I even had a real understanding of how the rest of the world saw my parents. My dad was always really supportive. My mom always wanted to make sure that this is what I really wanted to do before being in the public eye myself. They knew that’s genuinely who I am—I don’t know what else I would do if I wasn’t creating.”
On her character (Christina) in the sci-fi movie Divergent
“[My character] Christina comes from the faction of Candor, which is all about honesty; I was really intrigued by that. That’s why she’s kind of an open book—she’s feisty and she’s funny and she’s real—and those are the kind of people that I like to surround myself with, and I’m the same kind of person.”
On being (like her character Christina): feisty, candid, transparent and real
“…those character traits are not without their downsides. Sometimes you go too far, where you just put your foot in your mouth. I definitely struggle with that, so I identified with that part of her.
On friendships between women
“I love the friendship between her and Tris (Shailene Woodley’s character in Divergent). It’s so important to see females supporting each other, especially in films for younger people. My girlfriends have kept me sane over the years, so I think their friendship and their bond is really beautiful.”
“It was one of those moments when you look around the room and think, Oh my god, I’m shooting a scene with Naomi Watts and Kate Winslet—that’s absolutely insane!”
On her upcoming part in George Miller’s summer movie Mad Max: Fury Road alongside A-listers like: Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy
“Aesthetically, it was the most beautiful, creative thing I have ever seen. It was really crazy and surreal and intense—we were out in the desert in the middle of nowhere, and all of a sudden, there’d be fire and bullets flying at us. It’s Mad Max, so it was definitely some gnarly shit we were doing.”
On her band LolaWolf
“It’s always been something I do in my spare time when I’m not working on a film; it makes me feel happy and creative, and I don’t like being idle”
On her band being the opening act for two major tours last year: Miley Cyrus’ and Lily Allen’s
“It was a big learning curve. We were used to playing really small venues, in front of people we know and love. Miley and Lily were both really supportive. Then there’s the truth of being an opening act: You’ve got to pay your dues. You’re not the band the audience came to see. It gives you thick skin, and you learn to perform even when the audience isn’t giving you that energy.
Her parents on her band Lola Wolf
“At first, they were like, ‘Oh, what is this?’ Which is how everyone reacts to it. The music is kind of weird and different. It’s good when you can’t describe it right away or put a genre to it; it represents me well. Now my mom plays it in the house and my dad is super proud.”
On how she was never affected by being a child of divorced parents at 3 years old due to tight and loving parents (actress Lisa Bonet and rocker Lenny Kravitz) co-parenting and then officially relocating with her father at age 11
“My mom told me that it was important for me to spend time with him,” she remembers. “I’m sure it was hard, but she took it like a champ.”
On her connection to Miami where she lived with her dad from ages 11-15
“Those are really strange years—that weird in-between place between being an adult and a kid. I associate my time in Miami with that. Miami is so beautiful, you have that to fall back on when everything else is falling apart because you’re 13 and confused. You can go to the beach and lie outside.”
On she and her dad’s design firm on Sunset Island in Miami Beach
“It was big and everything was white and clean-looking, and you weren’t allowed to drink anything dark.”
On her close relationship with her parents
“It makes things so easy that my parents are still very close, they have so much love for each other. My dad and my step-dad [Game of Thrones actor Jason Mamoa] get along really well, and my dad loves and is close with my brother and sister. It’s really beautiful. As long as everyone can be in the same room together, and have love for each other, it’s totally healthy.”
On already being in the limelight before embarking on her own career
“I can’t imagine what it’s like for people who come from very normal lives and all of a sudden become famous. I’ve been lucky enough to dip my toe in it and feel the water before I got in the pool.”
On her romantic life (by which she is currently single)
“I’m never in one place for more than a couple of weeks, and when I’m home, I just want to be home and do normal things—do the laundry and clean my house and have brunch with friends.”
Her prerequisite for dating her
“I don’t have much of a type; the most important thing to me in a relationship is that they can make me laugh and I can make them laugh. Laughing is just the deepest, sexiest thing.”
