Zoe Kravitz: Says Mother Lisa Bonet Is “The Most True Artist” Yet

Zoe Kravitz is featured on the cover of ASOS Fashion. In an interview with the fashion clothing website, Zoe Kravits talks about her mother, Lisa Bonet, and father Lenny Kravitz. She also talks about sharing clothes with her parents, and how her father, Lenny, steals her clothes, too.

I used to be a little embarrassed by how she and my dad would dress, but now I steal their clothes all the time. My dad has totally taken my Cat Stevens t-shirt, but it’s OK, I have his Black Flag one and that’s amazing.

I love young artist that seem to have a strong sense of identity. When Zoe talks about how much her mother influences her, I almost teared up. Zoe Kravitz attributes her unique ability to not sell out to the industry to her mother, Lisa Bonet:

On Her Mother Lisa Bonet:

She walked away from being famous, because she didn’t really care about it. She is the most true artist I have met. She doesn’t change for anybody. I see her in front of people, in interviews, at home alone at five in the morning making collages, or in her garden, and I admire her so much. And the fact that she’s my mom is just so cool!

On Not Selling Out For Fame:

I’m only at the beginning of my career, but I feel successful in that I haven’t sold out in any way, shape or form. I feel good about the choices I’ve made, and I don’t feel like I’ve let go of any of my values. Fame has become this obsession for people, which kind of creeps me out.

On Her Father Being Strict:

My dad was brought up very old school, very strict – yes mam, yes sir. So he’s wearing leather pants and a boa but he would be like, “Did you do your chores today?” “That dress is too short!” Serioulsy, no joke. I had chores, I had an allowance — “Yes, there’s a party going on with Mick Jagger and some models, but it’s your bedtime.
