Zoe Kravitz recently interviewed with Blackbook magazine where discussed her yearning to break out of her trademark titles (as famous offspring and fashionista) and make a name for herself as a legit actress.

On being known as the daughter of a Lenny Kravitz & Lisa Bonet, and a budding fashion darling:

“It’s a compliment, I guess, that people think I dress cool, but I think I dress like a f*****’ weirdo. I don’t want to be ‘the daughter of… ’ who wears cool clothes and goes out. I want to be known as an actress—hopefully that will happen soon.”

On why she almost didn’t audition for X-Men: First Class:

“My agent had to make me go because it was such a big movie, so I thought there was no way I was going to get it. Oddly, whenever I just go for shits and giggles, I end up booking the part. It’s exactly how I got Mad Max: Fury Road.”

On her new film Yelling To The Sky with Gabourey Sidibe:

“A lot of people started comparing it to Precious. It really freaked me out and made me kind of sad. It made me feel like people weren’t watching the film. They see Gabby, artistic shots, and brown people, and suddenly it’s Precious. I don’t care how much I’m in the movie, as long as I care about the character.”

Always rooting for her!
