In a very revealing profile in Rolling Stone, actress Zoë Kravitz opens up about her childhood, career, and yes, her new fiancé.
Here’s the text, verbatim, from the profile:
We stop at an ice cream shop, where she orders vegan mint-chocolate-chip in a cone. At which point I notice, for the first time, the huge diamond on her left ring finger. “Oh yeah, I’m engaged,” she says, so casually I assume she’s joking. “No, I’m engaged!” she repeats. “I haven’t told anyone yet — I mean, I haven’t told the world. I wanted to keep it private.”
There’s a bunch of things that confuse us about this: One, that the interviewer did not notice her engagement ring immediately. Two, that she wanted to keep it private — so she tells Rolling Stone?!
Kravitz, who is black and Jewish, is engaged to actor Karl Glusman, who, Wikipedia tells us, is of “German Jewish and Irish descent.”
They’ve been dating since 2016, and they are super stylish.
Other things we learned from the Rolling Stone profile, in no particular order:
Even though she’s probably our only reason to see Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Zoë is in “no rush” to be an A-list star.
She calls her dad, Lenny Kravitz, daily. And the Kravitz family, according to Zoë, are “some of the goofiest people in the world.” Her parents – Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravetz — were not planning to have a baby. When Bonet told Bill Cosby — her boss at the time — that she was pregnant, she was written off the show.
She often binge-watches Friends on Netflix, even though, as Zoë says, “it’s a bummer when you look back and everyone is white. But it’s like chicken soup.”
She is frustrated at the gentrification of Williamsburg, because “there’s a fuckin’ Apple store” where her bagel spot used to be.
She wishes more films and TV shows would talk about race, including her own show, Big Little Lies.
Oh, also, the photos are stunning:
Zoë’s profile was a direct imitation of an old profile of her mom (swipe through this post):
Ok bye! Love you, Zoë!
