Zoe Kravitz heats up her year coming off ‘Funny Story’
HollywoodNews.com: Burgeoning actress Zoe Kravitz is having quite a busy year.
Recently, she earned guffaws from arthouse audiences in the Zach Galifianakis quirky comedy “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.” The hot starlet who is the daughter of singer Lenny Kravitz and “Cosby Show” actress Lisa Bonet is expected to break out even more next year in the tentpoles “X-Men: First Class” and the 2012 actioner “Mad Max: Fury Road,” currently in production.
Talking about her acting versatility, Kravitz told W Magazine “”My part in ‘The Brave One’ (with Jodie Foster) was actually written for a blond with a European accent. My part in ‘It’s Kind of a Funny Story’ was originally written for an Asian girl. They didn’t initially think of me for those roles. It’s my job to change minds.”
Another indie release featuring Kravitz, “Beware the Gonzo” is playing in the comedy section of this year’s Hollywood Film Festival at the ArcLight Cinemas on Saturday October 23rd. More info here. The film, about a high school geek’s rebellion at his prep school, recently received a warm critical response at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Kravitz also served as a muse for fashion designer Vera Wang when she launched her 2006 fragrance Vera Wang Princess due to the actress’ edgy, downtown identity.
It’s no surprise that Kravitz is a fashion icon as she has a cool-dressing father, whom she borrows clothes from.
Talking to UK InStyle, Kravitz exclaims “Dad’s wardrobe is worth raiding. There’ll be times when we’re having lunch and he’ll be like: ‘Is that my shirt?!’ He gets upset because I steal all the good ones.”
