Zoe Kravitz: My parents helped my 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."
