Zoe Kravitz is the child of two of the coolest people in recent memory, and she's following her parents footsteps. She's dabbled in music like her father, Lenny Kravitz, and she's an actress like her mother, Lisa Bonet. She's currently starring in Insurgent and she sat down with Complex to talk about her life as child of stars and her current career.
She talks to the magazine about her battle with eating disorders during her teen years.
“I had a really hard time when I was 16, 17, 18. I started with the eating disorder in high school….” She trails off at this, and puts her hand to the side of her face, rubbing her right ear, and then dials back to the beginning of that thought: “Just [a hard time] loving myself.”
In high school, she became anorexic and bulimic—“awful diseases” she’d battle to various degrees until the last two or so years. And here, she’s willing to acknowledge to a certain degree her pedigree playing a darker kind of role: “I think it was part of being a woman, and being surrounded by [fame],” she explains, before backtracking: “I don’t think it was about the fame, but I think it was definitely about being around that world, seeing that world. I felt pressured.”
