Hot Progeny: Zoë Kravitz

In just four years of acting, Zoë Kravitz has played a teen prostitute (in The Brave One, alongside Jodie Foster), a victim of physical abuse (in Yelling to the Sky, opposite Gabourey Sidibe) and a grief-counseling addict (in The Greatest, with Carey Mulligan). It’s such a grim filmography that we’re kind of surprised when Kravitz, 22, calls from a distinctly ungritty teahouse and goes on spiritedly about her love of Anchorman (quoting the entire “I love lamp” scene verbatim) and her favorite actor of all time, Gene Wilder. “He’s so underrated,” the actress – and daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet – says. “Willy Wonka is such a complex performance; he deserved an Oscar for it.” Why does she get so many troubled-youth roles? “I haven’t thought about it. But I do know I don’t like bubblegum parts.”
