Zoe Kravitz: 'I Didn't Think I Had A Shot' at X-Men Role

Zoe Kravitz sits back and relaxes in a feature for Wonderland magazine April/May 2011 issue.

Here is what the 22-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On getting the role in X-Men: First Class: “When it comes to stuff like X-Men, I just didn’t think that I would get that part. I just think I auditioned because people were auditioning and my agent was like, ‘Please go’, and had to talk me into going.”"

On having famous parents [Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet]: “Having well-known parents is kind of a double-edged sword. It’s given me wonderful opportunities, but people also like to knock you down because of it too and say that you have got things because of that.”

On her parents’ advice for dealing with Hollywood: “They told me not to take it seriously. People get very serious about the Hollywood fame thing and the reason I think I came out level-headed was that they didn’t raise me to think it was anything serious. I had no illusions. People get way too deep about it and in the end it’s just a job and we’re all equal.”

    X-Men: First Class will not apparently be the definitive depiction of the Hellfire Club as they do not seem to have included anyone apart from Sebastian Shaw and Emma Frost. As it stands it will only be them and a bunch of nameless henchmen in the film. They should have included Harry Leland, Donald Pierce, Tessa and Selene instead of several randomly chosen mutants whose names that they picked out of a hat.

    She’s very pretty.

  • Sofie

    I’m glad that she might be coming up as an actress, as far as the younger generation, she seems to have a good head on her shoulders. Best of Luck!

  • Weber from Brazil

    I think she’s pretty
    she’s got swagga
    let’s hope she’ll be a good actress on this movie..

  • Teena

    is she still seeing Michael Fassbender?

  • Delphic

    She’s a good actress from what I’ve seen so far. I like how she acknowledges that having famous parents has given her certain opportunities.

    Zoe does not seem to understand how NEPOTISM works.

    @boston61: Ok, but it’s not like her parents are at the top of their careers so I wonder how much power they have. I mean let’s be honest, they’re C-list at best and their careers peaked like 15 years ago. If this kid has any talent and any brains she could easily make a name for herself. But if it’s just the fame she’s after I’m betting it will last for a year or so.

    I remember her mom making a big deal out of not giving her immunizations as a child because it was toxic and so bad for her… she smokes!! Bet that makes her mom so mad!

  • Nice

    She is so ridiculously pretty. She’s perfect.

  • kidd

    Nepotism is disgusting.
    Do any of you honestly think she would stand a chance in Hollywood if her daddy wasnt Lenny Kravitz?

  • Iggles

    kidd – Are you kidding?

    The girl is GORGEOUS. Not surprising because both of her parents are also gorgeous!

    Stop sipping the haterade. Her beauty and unique looks would get her casted. If she looked like Rumor Willis — there’s someone who would NEVER get any jobs if it wasn’t for her parents!

  • Reg

    OMG she is just gorgeous then again you just have to look at her parents .
