Zoe Kravitz got steamy for GQ magazine, and the result has gone viral. But although Lenny Kravtiz’ daughter dared to bare her body in a bikini, she still has some self-esteem issues when it comes to her body image, reported the Daily Mail.
At 26, the daughter of Lenny and Lisa Bonet has experienced some struggles. She has succeeded both as a model and an actress, but also is still in recovery from an eating disorder. And although Zoe agreed to the uber-sexy photo shoot with GQ, Kravitz also confessed that she’s obsessed with contrasting her own appearance to women who she feels are more beautiful.
Starring in Mad Max: Fury Road, the actress views comparing herself to others as part of the entertainment industry world.
“I think it’s important for people to hear that people within the industry feel that, too. I will always compare myself to the beautiful blonde bombshell with huge boobs. It’s the name of the game.”
As for her battle with an eating disorder, Zoe feels that is part of who she has become in her adulthood.
“I’m coming into a place where I’m trying to love myself more and not let that affect me. This is the way I’m made and this is it, so I’m going to go with it,”added Kravitz prior to that sexy GQ shoot.
In addition to Mad Max: Fury Road, Zoe took on the role of an anorexic girl in The Road Within.
“Even though it kind of triggered everything back up for me, it allowed me to really confront it and then hopefully let it go forever,” she said.
As the Inquisitr reported, Kravtiz weighed only 90 pounds at one point, subsisting on a diet of vegetables and clay. And when she was praised for being so thin, Zoe became even more upset.
“People were like, ‘You look so good!’ I was like, ‘Oh my God, that is disturbing.’ “
Now, Kravtiz credits her mother, Lisa Bonet, for helping her restore her body image and self-confidence, reported Essence.
“I’ve been raised by the most bada** woman in the world. My mom has an amazing group of friends, and growing up they kind of adopted me.”
As for her Mad Max: Fury Road role, Zoe took on the role of Toast.
“[Toast] rises to the occasion, she really joins the fight, and she understands the harshness of the wasteland,” said the actress of her character. “I really love the transition. Initially she’s more of an accessory, and the next thing you know she’s loading guns and driving cars.”
