'Mad Max' actress Zoe Kravitz has admitted she is "very aware" that her parents' fame helped her career
Zoe Kravitz is "very aware" that her parents' fame helped her career.
The 'Mad Max' actress - who is the daughter of singer Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet - has insisted she knows she's had an easier path into the film industry than people without famous parents.
She told InStyle magazine: "I'm very aware that I got into a certain room, and got a reading and got an agent because of who my parents are. It's not going to be as easy for some 16-year-old girl living in Iowa as it was for me. But at the end of the day, that's not why they hired me. It made me work harder."
The 26-year-old beauty also explained that she never really thought of her parents - who divorced in 1993 - as celebrities when she was growing up.
She shared: "I wasn't really aware of their fame until I was about eight or nine years old. My parents are pretty down to earth, and I think it was important to them to not let [their fame] interfere with my development. I'm not going to say it wasn't glamorous, because I know that it was. But it was normal for me."
