Zoe Kravitz flies into ‘X-Men’ franchise


    Zoe Kravitz took her career to new heights in the movie X:Men: First Class, which opens in theaters this week.
    The 22-year-old rock royalty—her father is musician Lenny Kravitz and her mom is "The Cosby Show" and "A Different World" star, Lisa Bonet—had to get in good physical shape for her first major movie role as the insect-winged mutant Angel Salavadore. The actress and singer was transformed into her own stuntwoman.
    "I asked to do as many stunts as I could myself just because it seemed like fun … They put a harness on you and there’s like four wires and they pretty much just zoom you around the room. It’s like a roller coaster. It’s really fun," Zoe told "Access Hollywood."
    But more surprisingly—and a huge shock to her parents—will be her character’s role as a go-go dancer. Zoe said she won’t be discussing that with Mom and Dad. "No need to talk about the fact that I was dancing on a table half-naked," she said jokingly.


    Although shooting is done, Zoe said she misses the cast and hopes to do two more films. "I miss everyone so much. It’s really sad ’cause everyone’s pretty much gone on. We all keep in touch of course, but everyone’s doing their own thing," she said.
    There is one co-star that Zoe’s reportedly been keeping in close contact with. Rumor has it that she’s been getting serious with Michael Fassbender, 34, who plays the metal mastermind Magneto in the film.

    Right now Zoe is keeping her hopes high that comic fans across the globe respect her craft, which she said also took a lot of research. "This is really near and dear to a lot of people, so I hope we don’t disappoint them," she told MTV.
