She’s starring in one of this summer’s biggest movies (X-Men: First Class), has famously gorgeous parents (Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet), modeled for the likes of Vera Wang and has a band (Elevator Fight) that has performed at the annual South by SouthWest festival, but Zoe Kravitz tells ASOS magazine that she doesn’t really like the ‘It Girl’ label she’s been getting.
“All that ‘it girl’ s— makes me kind of uncomfortable,” the 22 year-old said. “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,” Kravitz told the July issue of the magazine.
Growing up as a child of celebrity parents who are noted for their own personal sense of style, Kravitz wasn’t always on board with how they dressed.
“I used to be a little embarrassed by how she (Bonet) and my dad (Kravitz) would dress…but now I steal their clothes all the time.”
The Beware The Gonzo star said living in London with her X-Men cast mates, friends and boyfriend developed her thrift/boho fashion sense.
“We [Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and boyfriend Michael Fassbender] were living in London for four months and it was like X-Men summer camp, so we all hung out at each other’s houses after filming, went out to pubs…I lived in Notting Hill, right by Portobello…I’m spending all my money on flea-market shopping!”
