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
