Zoe Kravitz stars on the cover of British Vogue‘s July 2019 issue and gets candid about everything from how she met her fiancé at a bar and how she developed a decade-long eating disorder as a child.
In October 2018, the 30-year-old announced that she was engaged to actor Karl Glusman.
“I love that it wasn’t on an app and that it wasn’t on a movie set,” Kravitz says of how the two met. “My friend knew that I wanted to meet someone — not even to get serious, I think just to get laid, to be completely honest with you — and he brought Karl. I instantly felt something — then he turned around and started talking to the blonde girl next to him and I was like, ‘Wait, what?’ But he later told me that he was just nervous.”
It was reported last month that Kravitz and Glusman may have already gotten legally married, with a planned ceremony to be held in June.
At 13 years old, Kravitz developed an eating disorder that lasted for about 10 years.
“I think it came from a lot of things,” the actress says. “My mother was so beautiful and so tiny, I always felt clunky around her, and then my dad was always surrounded by supermodels… I was short, and you feel uncomfortable in your skin anyway at that age.”
With “Big Little Lies” season 2 premiering this weekend, Kravitz also reflects on her career success and making it in Hollywood on merit despite the star power of her parents Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz.
“When I got into acting school, I never knew if it was because of my audition or my last name,” she says. “But I’m slowly learning that no director will hire me because of my surname. The first 10 years of my career have been about proving myself. I now finally feel like I’m in a place where I’m able to say, ‘I deserve this,’ and, ‘I worked really hard.’ I’m getting better.”
