ZOË KRAVITZ

GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE GQ -

THE 26-YEAR-OLD HASN’T JUST MADE A NAME FOR HER­SELF – SHE THREAT­ENS TO OUT­SHINE HER DAD.

Peo­ple talk about fa­mous par­ents like they’re a bad thing. Truth is, it turned out pretty well for the Dakota John­sons and Mi­ley Cyrus’ of this world (mi­nor drug scan­dals aside). But Zoë, daugh­ter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and ac­tress Lisa Bonet, has avoided rid­ing her par­ents’ coat-tails – in­stead carv­ing a ca­reer that spans screens big and small, not to men­tion fash­ion and mu­sic. She landed her first act­ing gig in high school, and has since notched up more than two dozen cred­its – six of them this year. Mad Max: Fury Road thrust her into the lime­light, but roles in the X-men fran­chise, Di­ver­gent tril­ogy, and For­est Whi­taker’s re­cent in­die flick Dope have fur­ther hyped her ap­peal (and abil­ity). Plus, she’s mod­elled for Alexan­der Wang and re­leased a de­but al­bum with her su­per-cool band, Lo­la­wolf. “You used to have to be a ‘triple threat’ to make it in Hol­ly­wood,” she ex­plained re­cently. “You used to have to sing, to dance. You were an en­ter­tainer.” But while some choose to cap­ture at­ten­tion with head­lines, Zoë’s ap­peal is down to a much sim­pler qual­ity: tal­ent. And she’s show­cas­ing it damn well. Dope is in cine­mas now
