Big Little Lies star Zoe Kravitz opened up about her challenging but exciting childhood, an eating disorder and how she finally found love in a frank conversation with British Vogue.
Kravitz, who also graces the cover of the mag, is the daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz. The 30-year-old dishes on her father’s appearance at her school just as his hit “Fly Away” was topping the charts.
She jokes of her classmates, who swarmed him: “I always thought, ‘I know why I’m so excited to see him, because it’s rare for him to pick me up, but why are you all so excited?'”
Kravitz admits that growing up around rich white kids, and her tiny mother, made life tough. She says: “My mother was so beautiful and so tiny, I always felt clunky around her, and then my dad was always surrounded by supermodels… I was short, and you feel uncomfortable in your skin anyway at that age.”
Kravitz says that she found love almost immediately with her fiancé Karl Glusman after a brief blip.
“I love that it wasn’t on an app and that it wasn’t on a movie set,” Kravitz said. “My friend knew that I wanted to meet someone – not even to get serious, I think just to get laid, to be completely honest with you – and he brought Karl. I instantly felt something – then he turned around and started talking to the blonde girl next to him and I was like, ‘Wait, what?’ But he later told me that he was just nervous.”
The second season of Big Little Lies premieres Sunday on HBO.
