Zoe Kravitz has clapped back at an Instagram follower who accused her of lightening her skin.

The Big Little Lies star, the daughter of fellow actress Lisa Bonet and rocker Lenny Kravitz, shared a photo of herself posing with her grey and white dog on social media on Tuesday, while holed up at home amid the global coronavirus pandemic.

“Stay inside kids. one day at a time,” she captioned the snap, which referenced her self-isolation as cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles and New York, advise residents to stay home to contain the spread of Covid-19.

The bright lighting of the picture led one fan to question whether Zoe had undergone a cosmetic treatment to lighten her skin colour, with the user writing, “Am I wrong or she is looking so white in this picture, please don’t tell me you are getting ready of your melanin, you are so beautiful with your natural color (sic).”

The comment prompted a backlash from some of Zoe’s other followers, who branded the remark “rude”, before the 31-year-old weighed in herself.

“Girl. this is what happens to some of us mixed kids when we can’t go outside lol (laugh out loud),” she retorted.

This isn’t the first time that Zoe has had to respond to unwanted comments about her appearance on social media.

The High Fidelity star recently shared two selfies on Instagram in which she showcased the products she used from YSL Beauty to achieve her perfect pout.

However, one of her 5.6 million followers was irked by the snaps, and claimed the actress had resorted to using fillers.

“Babe, what have u done to your beautiful natural lips??” the user wrote, prompting the star to reply, “Um. put some lipgloss on them…”

Eiza Gonzalez heartbroken after losing out on Catwoman role

Eiza Gonzalez still hasn’t recovered from losing out on the chance to play Catwoman in Matt Reeves’ upcoming blockbuster The Batman.

The Baby Driver star was told to audition for Selina Kyle and her feline alter ago by the director himself, but was left heartbroken when Zoe Kravitz was cast instead.

Eiza told The Hollywood Reporter she became so obsessed that she imagined herself as Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson as Batman in the comic book adaptation, and was “living and breathing” the role after getting down to the final stages of the audition process.

“It’s impossible not to do that, especially when you get so far down the line,” the 30-year-old confessed. “It’s part of why you’re so far down the line – because you’re living and dreaming the character.

“For my prep for every role, I’m kind of a weirdo, especially when I’m already at the camera test stage or really deep into it. I will live and breathe the character; I’m more traditional in that sense. It is heartbreaking; it is always hard. You have to envision yourself in the role in order to see the role. You can’t have one foot in and one foot out.”

But the Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw star is experienced enough to know that when one door closes in Hollywood, another one opens, and she’s remaining positive that the experience will lead to another opportunity in the future.

“It’s always heartbreaking, but what I’ve learned with time, those relationships that you curate and the people that you meet don’t go away,” she shared. “The beauty of our industry is it’s never ending; it’s always evolving and transforming. I’m just lucky and grateful that I’ve had the chance to meet incredible directors and be part of incredible projects.”

Zoe Kravitz has responded to a social media follower who falsely accused her of getting lip fillers.

The Big Little Lies actress, who has been the face of Yves Saint Laurent Beaute since 2017, recently posted two selfies on Instagram, with the images showcasing the products she used from the French fashion house to achieve her perfect pout.

“Pre @ysl show vibes @yslbeauty Rouge Pur Couture Slim Sheer Matte 102 + Natural Pink and Volupte Liquid Balm 1,” she wrote in the caption.

However, one of her 5.6 million followers was irked by the snaps, and claimed Zoe had resorted to using fillers.

“Babe, what have u done to your beautiful natural lips??” the user wrote, prompting the star to set the record straight.

“Um. put some lipgloss on them…” the 31-year-old fired.

Zoe was later forced to comment once again, after more followers accused her of getting lip injections.

“These are my lips. all pure. the equivalent as they always been,” she stated.

The brunette beauty was in the French capital for Paris Fashion Week and hit the headlines when she attended Anthony Vaccarello’s autumn/winter 2020 show for Saint Laurent alongside her father, Lenny Kravitz.

She wore a silver chainmail crop top with high-waisted jeans as she sat on the front row with her rocker dad, who wore a chic black suit with a striped shirt.

“This is important. @anthonyvaccarello. another beautiful show,” Zoe praised in a separate Instagram post.

Saint Laurent has dished up a line of ’80s-inspired power suits for fall/winter 2020.

Creative director Anthony Vaccarello unveiled his latest collection at the Fontaine du Trocadero as part of Paris Fashion Week late on Tuesday night, with the likes of Hailey Bieber, Kit Harington, Brooklyn Beckham, Joe Keery, Maika Monroe, Lily Collins, Ana de Armas, Rami Malek, and Zoe Kravitz all perched on the front row.

Explaining his influences for the range, Vaccarello commented in his show notes that he was interested in subverting convention by combining traditionally feminine silhouettes with racier fabrics.

“Between gilded salons and nocturnal places inhabited by well-mannered girls and bad boys, the Saint Laurent woman loves to take risks, she wears lace and cashmere with Latex,” he commented.

With the Eiffel Tower in the background, the presentation opened with a model walking the runway in a red and black plaid jacket, matching pussy bow blouse, black Latex leggings, and large black and gold stud earrings.

Vaccarello then offered up a parade of super sexy outfits, with one model sporting a halterneck top made of Latex with black velvet trousers and thigh-high boots, and another outfitted in a black leather corset and long coat.

And despite building up a reputation for using black and muted shades, Vaccarello used his new collection to experiment with colour.

Partway through the spectacle, models showed off skin-tight trousers made from purple, magenta, and red Latex, while he also dropped a line-up of outfits utilising eye-catching combinations, such as a bold red jacket matched with a pink top and purple leggings, or a mustard yellow jacket paired with purple tights.

To conclude, the designer served up a range of eveningwear pieces, like a red sequin dress with pussy bow neckline and black velvet dress with plunging neckline.

Matt Reeves has shared the first look at Robert Pattinson as the titular crime-fighting superhero in The Batman.

News that the 33-year-old had landed the coveted role of the Caped Crusader in the upcoming movie broke last year, and now, Reeves has teased fans with brooding camera test footage from the set of the blockbuster.

The 55-second clip sees a moody Pattinson in the iconic black costume, with the sounds of Michael Giacchino’s piano-driven score playing in the background, which is saturated with red lighting.

The British star looks into the camera in the final few seconds, with his face covered by the black bat mask.

“#TheBatman #CameraTest,” Reeves simply captioned the clip on Twitter on Thursday, while Giacchino told his followers: “Yes folks that’s my music in the video Matt just sent out. Enjoy!!”

The star-studded cast of The Batman also includes Zoe Kravitz, who is set to play Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman.

And she was full of praise for Pattinson and his take on the iconic DC Comics character in a recent interview with Variety.

“He’s just a delightful person and such a wonderful, thoughtful actor,” she told the publication. “I think he’s perfect for the role and it’s going to be such an adventure. I’m excited to have him as my partner in crime and to be there to support each other, because it’s intense.

“It’s going to be a long shoot and there’s a lot of pressure, and I know he has my back and I have his.”

The Batman, also starring Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis, John Turturro, and Peter Sarsgaard, is scheduled to hit cinemas in June 2021.

Zoe Kravitz is a big fan of Michelle Pfeiffer’s portrayal of Catwoman.

Last year, it was announced that the Big Little Lies actress would be starring opposite Robert Pattinson’s crime-fighting Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves’s upcoming flick The Batman.

And speaking to reporters at the recent Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour, Zoe opened up on what attracted her to the role and divulged that she had always loved Michelle’s debut as Catwoman in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns in 1992.

“I think Catwoman is an iconic character,” she explained. “I was never into a lot of comic books, but that world was always really intriguing to me. And then, of course, Michelle Pfeiffer – her performance has always been super inspiring to me. It just felt iconic.”

Zoe went on to discuss the complex character, who has also been played by Halle Berry and Anne Hathaway, and said she was excited to explore the “strong femininity” of the comic book criminal.

“I think Catwoman/Selina Kyle represents really strong femininity, and I’m excited to dive into that,” the 31-year-old stated. “I think femininity represents power, and I think it’s a different kind of power than masculine power. That’s something that’s really interesting about Batman and Catwoman.

“I think Batman represents a very kind of masculine power, and Catwoman represents very feminine power – slightly more complicated, and softer, too. I like the idea that you can be soft, you can be gentle and still be very powerful and still be very dangerous.”

The Batman, also starring Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, and Jeffrey Wright, is due for release in June 2021.

Jennifer Aniston pulled out all of the stops at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday night.

The 50-year-old, who won the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in The Morning Show, stood out in a vintage white silk dress designed by John Galliano back when he was creative director of Christian Dior between 1996 and 2011.

Speaking about her outfit during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet, Jennifer explained that she actually owns the gown.

“This is John Galliano for Christian Dior, this is a vintage dress that I sort of gave to myself as a present,” she said. “This is an investment. These are designers that are working for particular houses – I only have a couple.”

Jennifer completed her ensemble with jewellery from Fred Leighton.

But she wasn’t the only star to opt for white at the SAG Awards – Riverdale star Lili Reinhart looked elegant in a two-tone Miu Miu ballgown, The Handmaid’s Tale actress Yvonne Strahovski rocked a simple white gown from Khyeli and Christian Louboutin heels, while Millie Bobby Brown sported a Louis Vuitton outfit.

Other celebrities to make the best-dressed list included Zoe Kravitz, who matched her peach Oscar de la Renta column gown with white gloves and Tiffany & Co. bling, Cynthia Erivo, who stunned in a fuchsia and orange number from Schiaparelli, and Lupita Nyong’o, who dazzled in a strapless Louis Vuitton gown with silver sequin design.

Elsewhere, Renee Zellweger, who collected the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her film Judy, rocked a midnight blue dress from Maison Margiela with Jimmy Choo stilettos, and Scarlett Johansson made a splash in a teal blue Armani dress with plunging neckline.

Zoe Kravitz felt ‘short and ungainly’ as a teenager

Zoe Kravitz felt “shortly and ungainly” when she was a teenager.

The Big Little Lies star is an ambassador for YSL Beauty, has fronted campaigns for the likes of Saint Laurent and Tiffany & Co., and always flaunts her enviable style on the red carpet.

However, in a cover interview with Elle U.S. magazine, Zoe admitted she didn’t feel confident about her appearance growing up, because she compared herself to her actress mother Lisa Bonet and the models her father Lenny Kravitz dated, such as Adriana Lima.

“I didn’t like my new school. I didn’t feel like I fit in anywhere, and I was surrounded by an enormous amount of beauty and posturing. I was a chunky, perfectly normal-looking 15-year-old, but I had this remarkably beautiful skinny mother and a father who was dating a supermodel, and I felt short and ungainly,” she explained.

The actress soon developed an eating disorder which she suffered from for about a decade, and she remains mindful of her battle.

“I’m okay now,” the 31-year-old insisted. “But I am very vigilant. It’s a disease, and I never let myself forget that.”

Zoe, who married actor Karl Glusman last year, gave the interview to promote her starring role in upcoming miniseries High Fidelity, based on Nick Hornby’s book of the same name.

And the brunette beauty, who considers her love of fashion “an obsession”, revealed that she helped costume designer Colleen Atwood find vintage clothes for her character, including a leather coat that’s similar to the one John Cusack sported in the 2000 film adaptation.

“Most of them are now living in my closet,” she added of the costumes.

Zoe Kravitz has taken to social media to show off a brand-new hairstyle.

The Big Little Lies actress often switches up her hairstyles, experimenting with everything from short crops to platinum blonde tresses. Lately, Zoe has been rocking long brunette braids, but on Tuesday, she uploaded a photo on Instagram showing her posing with her fresh pixie cut.

“Hair,” she captioned the snap, adding the scissors emoji.

Zoe didn’t add any further details, though it is likely her transformation is for her upcoming role as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Matt Reeves’s The Batman, also featuring Robert Pattinson, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, and Andy Serkis. Production is expected to begin shortly, with the film slated for release in June 2021.

Zoe’s post quickly caught the attention of her celebrity followers, with Charlize Theron writing, “So, so pretty,” Abbie Cornish noting, “Looks so good,” and Emily Ratajkowski simply adding, “Yes” with a heart eye emoji.

Models Carolyn Murphy and Naomi Campbell posted emojis too, as did Zoe’s stepfather, actor Jason Momoa.

The 30-year-old tagged her go-to hairstylist Nikki Nelms in her Instagram photo, with the hair guru writing “Baby boo” in the comments section.

Previously, Nikki shared in an interview with Refinery29 that her celebrity client is pretty much fearless when it comes to trying out new looks.

“It also helps that she’s super open to change and not that attached to anything,” she stated. “She’s open to length or cutting it, open to darkening or bleaching. When you’re open, you can experience more. Once you figure out what you love about your hair, you can do the same thing. And it doesn’t hurt to be as beautiful as Zoe is, either.”

John Turturro is to play crime boss Carmine Falcone in The Batman.

The latest standalone film about the iconic DC Comics character already stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Jim Gordon, while Colin Farrell is rumoured to be playing the Penguin.

Director Matt Reeves announced that The Night Of actor was joining the cast by making reference to Turturro’s performance in 1998 classic, The Big Lebowski, on Twitter.

“(Batman) I said,” Reeves tweeted, alongside a GIF of the actor as bowling ace Jesus Quintana saying, “You said it, man.”

Nicknamed The Roman in the DC Comics, Falcone is a crime boss who is an enemy of Batman’s, but a friend of his alter ego, Bruce Wayne.

In one comic, called The Long Halloween, Carmine Falcone’s father brings his injured son to Thomas Wayne’s mansion to be treated up after being shot, and fans have speculated that Reeves is following that particular story for his take on Gotham City’s crime-fighting superhero.

Oscar-nominated British actor Tom Wilkinson played Carmine Falcone in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins back in 2005.

Reeves wrote the script with Mattson Tomlin, and has regular collaborator Michael Giacchino composing the score, as well as Greig Fraser serving as cinematographer.

Filming is due to begin in spring 2020 in London at Leavesden Studios, and is set to be released in June 2021.
