But the new name, as Zoe says, “didn’t take root.”

Zoe Kravitz became a guest of Dax Shepard’s podcast Armchair Expert, where she said that for her acting career she wanted to abandon the famous surname of her father, rocker Lenny Kravitz.

I thought to change her. I wanted to leave my middle name – Isabella as a surname, so that there would be Zoe Isabella. But it just did not take root. People constantly forgot and called me in the old way. This idea didn’t come to anyone,

She also noted that her father was a little upset by the fact that she decided to change her last name.

I once told him about this and felt that he was a little upset. So I stayed with his last name. I didn’t like that because of the surname, people immediately associate me with my family, but now I even like it, I’m proud of it,

– said Zoe.

Zoe Kravitz is the daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. They divorced when Zoe was small. After the divorce, Lisa began dating actor Jason Momoa, whom she married 12 years later. After the parents divorced, Zoe remained to live with her father, who was known as Hollywood’s main smoothie: he met Nicole Kidman, Michelle Rodriguez, Adriana Lima, Madonna, Kylie Minogue and many other famous beauties.
