Her Godmother is Marisa Tomei
You heard that right. Her Godmother is none other than the evergreen beauty Marisa Tomei. You would know her better as Aunt May of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tomei has been a guiding force in Kravitz’s acting career. It’s good to have such a powerful ally in the industry by your side. Who knew that the DCEU’s new Catwoman had such a deep rooted connection to the MCU?!?!
Music Runs In The Family
Zoe Kravitz being a musician is not a fluke. Her singing abilities are genetic. She comes from a long line of singers. Like her dad, Zoe Kravitz was blessed with an amazing voice. With the help of her siblings, she started her career in music before moving on to greener pastures in acting. Zoe Kravitz even has her own band named Lolawolf. She has done several cross country troops with her band. If you have not heard their songs yet, we suggest you listen to them for once. You will fall in love with them.
Not One To Take On Roles Considered As ‘Stereotypes’
Zoe Kravitz is proud of her color and origins. She respects her roots and heritage. Like any other self-respecting POC actor, she refuses to take on roles that demean minorities. Even if the role is a high paying one, Kravitz would say no. She has done this multiple times in the past when she believed the role was trying to type-cast into becoming a generic run of the mill character that is more of a cultural stereotype than an actual acting job.
Loves Breaking Bad
The singer turned actress has some surprisingly cool hobbies. Like most of us, she loves binge watching shows. She has gone on record to state that her favorite show till date was Breaking Bad. She has watched other popular shows too. During her free time when she is not binge watching the heck out of a series, she is busy crocheting. Now that’s probably a word you heard for the first time.
Took Method Acting To Extreme Levels
Zoe Kravitz took on the the role of a girl suffering from acute Anorexia in The Road Within. She was so engrossed in playing the part that she undertook method acting for her portrayal. Her body started giving in. Kravitz lost her voice and almost 90 pounds. She had narrowed shingles, a disoriented and ineffective immune system, and later it was reported that she had trouble walking. That’s some pretty deadly dedication to the job.
Has Over 20 Tattoos
Zoe Kravitz loves Tattoos. She has around 18 to 19 of them on her body. The last time she did a count, the number came down to 19. Considering her love for tattoo arts, that number has definitely increased. The actor is known to flaunt her tattoos in public, an act that is completely unorthodox to his celebrity peers. Kravitz truly is one of a kind. She never fails to challenge the status quo.
