It’s fair to say that the past year has been a rollercoaster for Zoe Kravitz. Since the 33-year-old actress first donned the sparkly dress and danced her way to Instagram stardom last summer, the former child star has gone on to become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars—thanks in no small part to her colorful Instagram, which boasts over 2.6 million followers. Now, it seems, Wonderland is poised to cap off this epic journey.
Although the actress has yet to publicly confirm the news, it was recently reported that Kravitz and her husband, cinematographer and director Robert Pattison, are expecting their first child together. And perhaps fittingly, Wonderland will serve as the couple’s babymoon film. In the meantime, the film’s soundtrack will likely become another best-selling album for Pattison’s Los Angeles-based production company, Roar, and the couple’s joint charity, Children of Los Angeles, which brings economic opportunity and a brighter future to disadvantaged youth in the city.
A Rising Star And A Decades-Long Film Career
While certainly not her only film credit, Kravitz arguably made her name in Hollywood as the “It” girl for the 2000s—a superstar who can seemingly do no wrong. If pictures don’t lie, her Instagram account is a testament to her flawless beauty and an advertisement for her acting talent. That she’s able to maintain such a large and engaged audience while also maintaining such a private life is almost unheard of in today’s Hollywood. According to People, Kravitz had only revealed the news of her husband’s death in February, less than two weeks before celebrating her 34th birthday.
That she’s been able to keep so many loyal fans interested for so long is proof that she’s a multifaceted talent with no shortage of charm. But the fact that so much of her appeal seems to lie in her air of mystery only adds to her mystique. Fans have longed to know more about Kravitz and her personal life, but she’s kept her private world a secret. That is, until now.
An Instinctive Beauty
Kravitz is the product of one of Hollywood’s most prominent acting families. Her father, Tony Kravitz, is a Grammy-nominated jazz musician and actor who, along with his brothers, formed the band, Kravitz. Her uncle, David Kravitz, is a noted photographer who has shot the likes of Debbie Harry, Bianca Jagger, and more recently, Princess Kate Middleton. In more ways than one, then, Kravitz is a Hollywood powerhouse. But it’s also fair to say that she’s a bit of a maverick. While her celebrity might be attributed to her impressive lineage, it’s also the result of her hard-earned success.
Born in New York City and raised in Northern California, Kravitz attended the prestigious Julliard School before moving to London to study at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. After taking a brief break from acting due to pregnancy, she returned to the big screen in 2002 with a role in the romantic comedy Come Back to Me. Since then, she’s appeared in The Great Gatsby (2005), Cold Weather (2007), and Gone Girl (2014). Most recently, she lent her voice to the upcoming live-action adaptation of Shashi’s The Crow, a manga about birds of prey. In 2020 alone, she’s due to appear in the films After Mr. Lincoln and Private Life of an American Woman. She also has a role alongside Elisabeth Moss in the forthcoming Hulu series, The Handmaid’s Tale.
A Sensual Voice
It’s clear that Kravitz’s appeal lies in her beauty and acting talent; it’s just as clear that her voice also plays a key role. In 2007, she co-founded the company, Zoetic, which provides voice-over work for filmmakers. In addition to being the voice of Miranda Cosgrove in the animated series, The Life Aquatic, she also provides the voices of the main characters in Hotel Transylvania, Hotel Transylvania 2, and Mr. Peabody & Sherman. She is also the voice of Meredith in Hotel Transylvania 2.
Kravitz has also lent her voice to a number of video games, including the Mass Effect series, Grand Theft Auto, and the Pokémon Go and Animal Crossing mobile games. In 2020, she will be seen alongside Felicity Jones and Jason Isaacs in the Netflix war film, Never Again, based on the true story of the London Blitz.
A Brimming Personal Life
While her Instagram account might make her seem like a recluse, the actress’ personal life is, in fact, anything but quiet. After dating English actor, and alleged cat-lover, Ross Kemp for more than a decade, the actress tied the knot with musician, and animal rights activist, Pattison in 2013. They’ve since been inseparable—sharing not only a professional and personal partnership, but a love for fashion and for being together. In addition to their newborn son, Kai, the couple have revealed that they’re both fans of Elizabeth Taylor. Indeed, they’ve been seen dining out on their wedding day with the famous couple’s engagement ring in-hand.
Kravitz also has a reputation for being quite the party girl. In 2013, she caused yet another media frenzy when she was spotted cancanning on a yacht with her friend, Naomi Campbell. The same year, she was also photographed with the Duchess of York, Elizabeth II. Most recently, reports surfaced that the actress was seen partying with L.A. club royalty at Nobu Hotel and Beach House in Malibu, California. According to reports, the guest list included Heidi Klein, Amanda Lepore, and Serena Blair. The evening was reportedly followed by a fireworks display and champagne. Naturally, her Instagram account filled up with pictures from the glamorous soiree.
A Global Icon
The media frenzy around Kravitz is unparalleled. As a result of her stunning looks and acting talent, she’s consistently ranked among the most desirable women in the world. In 2020 alone, Google searches for “Zoe Kravitz” reached an all-time high. In June 2020, it was reported that her net worth is a staggering $120 million. Most recently, in October 2019, Forbes estimated her net worth at $100 million. And, as if that weren’t enough, Kravitz reportedly turned down a multi-million-dollar Hollywood role because she didn’t want to lose her independence.
Kravitz is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable and influential figures in Hollywood today. With her mesmerizing looks, winning personality, and global status, she’ll continue to captivate audiences for years to come.
