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.”
