Zoe Kravitz Covers 'Nylon' Mag August 2015

Zoe Kravitz takes over the August 2015 issue of Nylon magazine.

The 26-year-old Divergent actress opened up about being friends with Miley Cyrus, black and white culture and more. Check it:

On the dynamics of her racial identity: “I identified with white culture, and I wanted to fit in,. I didn’t identify with black culture, like, I didn’t like Tyler Perry movies, and I wasn’t into hip-hop music. I liked Neil Young. [But things changed]…black culture is so much deeper than that, but unfortunately that is what’s fed through the media. That’s what people see. That’s what I saw. But then I got older and listed to A Tribe Called Quest and watched films with Sidney Poitier, and heard Billie Holiday and Nina Simone. I had to un-brainwash myself. It’s my mission, especially as an actress.”

On pal Miley Cyrus: “I was impressed by how much Miley loves music—you never know with pop stars.… One of my favorite activities is to sit and listen to a record, and at that point I don’t need to talk to you. You find that a lot of people don’t get that. It’s cool when you meet somebody who does.”

Mad Max co-star Nicholas Hoult on their time spent together: “She’s very committed. She draws from lots of different inspiration around her and is dedicated to learning, growing, and pushing herself. One of the highlights was watching Breaking Bad with Zoë while I knitted and she crocheted.”
