Zoe Kravitz shows her fierce side on the cover of Complex magazine’s April/May 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!
Here’s what the 26-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On growing up in a famous family: “When I was younger, I really wanted to prove to people I was a normal human being, that I was cool, chill… I had a really hard time when I was 16, 17, 18… 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.”
On overcoming anorexia: “It was f–ked up, man. You could see my rib cage. I was just trying to lose more weight for the film but I couldn’t see: You’re there. Stop. It was scary… [Now,] I feel like something has left my body, like some part of me is gone now, something that was making me so insecure. And it feels amazing.”
On coming in to her own: “It’s not that I hate fame or don’t appreciate the response, it’s just not the fire. [Fame] for me is a result of famous parents and hopefully doing my own thing. I know so many talented people that do the most amazing things but they need to work at a restaurant. I don’t. I can make all the art I want and get paid to do it—it’s fucking crazy. I’m so thankful for it.”
