Zoe Kravitz Interview -- Exclusive

Zoe Kravitz Interview -- Exclusive

Zoe Kravitz and I had a chance to talk last week at the Bon Appetit Supper Club during the 2009 Sundance Film Festival at Skylodge in Park City, Utah.

She dined with a few friends including actor Chris Lemke (pictured below) and Danny Masterson (not pictured).

Here’s what the 20-year-old daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet had to say:

JJ: Have you met Nakoa-Wolf yet?

ZK: Yes, I have met him! He’s adorable.

JJ: Who are some of your favorite designers?

ZK: Alexander Wang, he’s amazing. Chanel, I love Chanel. I don’t know. I’m kind of a vintage-y girl. I kind of just like what I like. I shop at flea markets.

JJ: Who are you style icons?

ZK: Carrie Bradshaw. Sex and the City. Jimi Hendrix.

JJ: What kind of music do you listen to?

ZK: I listen to a lot of old music. Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix. The Beatles. Nowadays, Radiohead, Ray Lamontagne, Feist.

JJ: Do you read blogs? Tabloids?

ZK: No, I do not. I try to stay away from all of that.

JJ: Can you tell us about your death-in-the-family drama, The Greatest? (The film screened at Sundance.)

ZK: It’s a story about grief, about a family that loses their kid at the beginning of the movie. And then they find out that he got someone pregnant. And then it’s about the relationship between the girl and the family.

JJ: Tell us about your character Ashley.

ZK: I play a girl that Johnny Simmons (Ryan) meets, who’s Susan [Sarandon] and Pierce [Brosnan]‘s son in the movie. And we start dating and I kind of end up being crazy.

JJ: You were in’s “We Are The Ones” video. Are you going to the Obama inauguration?

ZK: No, I’m not and I’m really bummed. But it’ll be a good day and I’ll be celebrating somewhere!


During the interview, Zoe‘s pal, actor Jon Foster, popped in and teased, “Don’t listen to anything this girl says! She’s lying!” Zoe smirked and said, “That’s Jon, who’s the star in The Informers. He’s amazing.” (The Informers also screened at Sundance.)

Other pictures include Zoe dancing with hip-hop star Wyclef Jean and posing with actor pal Ben Foster (Jon Foster‘s older brother) at Greenhouse on Thursday (January 22). Everyone gathered for The People Speak event hosted by Alternative. The People Speak is a campaign to engage young people on the global issues that will shape their future.
