A smoldering Zoe Kravitz posed for the March 2015 issue of Ocean Drive, and the Hollywood scion opened up about her famous parents Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, and their very amicable relationship 12 years after splitting.
“It makes things so easy that my parents are still very close,” Insurgent movie actress Kravitz, 26, told the mag. “They have so much love for each other. My dad and my stepdad get along really well.”
Kravitz’s superstar parents split in 1993 after six years of marriage. In 2007, Cosby Show alum Bonet remarried Game of Thrones hunk Jason Momoa, with whom she shares two children Nakoa-Wolf, 6, and Lola, 7. “My dad loves and is close with my brother and sister,” Zoe told the mag. “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.”
Unlike many of her Hollywood counterparts, Zoe said she personally felt blessed to grow up in the spotlight. “I can’t imagine what it’s like for people who come from very normal lives and all of a sudden become famous,” Kravitz reflected. “I’ve been lucky enough to dip my toe in it and feel the water before I got in the pool.”
One thing that confused her parents initially was when they first heard music from her band Lolawolf. “At first, they were like, ‘Oh, what is this?’ which is how everyone reacts to it,” she said of her band’s work. “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.”
The multi-hyphenate also spoke in detail about acting and pursuing other artistic opportunities. “It’s always what I’ve done, before I even had a real understanding of how the rest of the world saw my parents,” the Mad Max: Fury Road actress shared. “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.”
While her upbringing was rather unconventional, Zoe said she likes the normalcy in her daily life. “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,” she told Ocean Drive. “Do the laundry and clean my house and have brunch with friends.”
