Zoë Kravitz got used to seeing a lot of celebrities growing up with a famous mom and dad, but the 25-year-old actress said even she was surprised to wake up to find Ashton Kutcher in her family’s kitchen one day.
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her role in Divergent, the daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet described her chance encounter with Ashton.
“I go downstairs and I have pimple cream on my face… and there he is making an omelette,” she told Kimmel.
“There’s no one else in the kitchen. I don’t even know if he’s like breaking and entering. And he was just like, ‘Morning, do you want an omelette?’ and I was just like, ‘Yeah.’ We sat there before school and ate omelettes just, like, not understanding why he was there.”
Zoë Kravitz should get used to being around celebrities more often. The actress has been steadily raising her stature in Hollywood, and is poised for a breakthrough with her role in Divergent. Zoë will play Christina in the film adaptation of the popular book trilogy.
Zoë also has a few other big movies on her resume, including X-Men: First Class in 2011 and the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road. Though she’s becoming more of a draw herself, Kravitz said she’s still nervous taking on new projects.
“I mean, I get scared every time I go on stage; I get scared every time I start a project,” Zoë told SheKnows Entertainment. “It’s like… it’s vulnerable. You wanna do a good job and you wanna be honest, so I just think that’s a good sign when you get nervous before starting any kind of project.”
Kravitz said she hasn’t minded growing up with famous parents, and the extra attention and pressure that came with it.
“It made me stronger, I think. It made me work harder,” she revealed. “But no, I think there’s only as much pressure as you allow there to be. I’m very proud to be in that family.”
It’s not just acting keeping Zoë Kravitz busy. She’s also followed in her dad’s footsteps with a music career, playing with her band Lolawolf.
