As the progeny of two rather attractive, stylish and successful parents, it was always going to be a little difficult for Zoe Kravitz to step out of their shadow and be known as Zoe, rather than the daughter of Lenny Kravitz or Lisa Bonet. Having been a staple on style pages and blogs for a couple of years due to her flawless fashion sense, Ms Kravitz has scored the cover of ASOS magazine for next month, shot by Danielle Levitt. She also stars in X-Men: First Class (which is out now), this seems to be the very beginning of her ascent to superstar status, on her own terms.
“All that ‘it girl’ shit makes me kind of uncomfortable. I’m only at the beginning of my career, but I feel successful in that I haven’t sold out in any way, shape or form. I feel good about the choices I’ve made, and I don’t feel like I’ve let go of any of my values. Fame has become this obsession for people, which kind of creeps me out.”
