Zoë Kravitz Said Getting This Role Got Her More Attention Than Her Wedding
Getting top billing on High Fidelity, snagging a role in the X-Men franchise, and being part of Big Little Lies are all great things to have on a résumé, but Zoë Kravitz said that getting a chance to play Catwoman eclipsed all of her other jobs — and even overshadowed her wedding. In a new interview with Variety, Kravitz said that when news broke about her role in The Batman, she got more messages than she did for her nuptials.
"When the announcement came out that I had gotten this role, my phone rang more than it has ever. More than my birthday, more than my wedding, more than anything," Kravitz said. "So I felt that immediate pressure."
Part of that pressure came from knowing fellow Catwoman Michelle Pfeiffer. When the two met up at the Golden Globes after the Batman announcement, Kravitz said that Pfeiffer offered plenty of support.
"We sat at the same table at the Golden Globes, and I've met her a bunch over the years because of David E. Kelley," Kravitz said. "She'd always been so nice. I had just gotten cast so I was really nervous to be around her, and she was so sweet. She just gave me a big hug and said, 'You're going to be great.' That was really just amazing."
People reported that Kravitz wed fellow actor Karl Glusman last year. It all went down at her dad Lenny Kravitz's house in Paris and included her mom, Lisa Bonet, and her husband, Jason Momoa. Kravitz's Big Little Lies pals Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Reese Witherspoon were also there to celebrate, too, as well as Sam Taylor-Johnson and her husband, Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
Kravitz went on to say that while she's excited to play Catwoman, being a married woman is changing her more than she thought it would. For one, she says she's making good choices now, which she explained was how she realized she was becoming an adult.
"I'm married, and [making] less bad choices — I would like to think," she added. "You know, life is an ongoing struggle, so of course, there's always work to be done. But there's that first step where it's like, I'm an adult."
