Zoë Kravitz's Was Offered A Man's Role And She Shared Her Thoughts In Harper's Bazaar

Zoë Kravitz's cover photos for Harper's Bazaar were unedited and they look breathtakingly gorgeous.

Zoë Kravitz is on the October issue of Harper's Bazaar, where she dished on racial stereotyping, roles in Hollywood, and beauty. All her photos were unretouched and she looks GOOD AF.

Reese Witherspoon interviewed the actress and musician, and asked if she had any anxiety about the unretouched images. Kravitz said, "I was a little scared when they told me. What scared me most was that I was scared about it. That made me sad."

Kravitz also opened up about her role in representation. "I meet all these beautiful, young brown women with braids who feel a connection to me. I’m sure it feels good to see someone you can connect to in the media," she said. "When I was growing up, almost everyone I saw in a movie was white and blonde and had big boobs. Not that that’s not okay, but eventually you wonder, 'Am I alone out here? Am I not desirable or interesting?'"

When Witherspoon asked her Big Little Lies co-star if she was starting to see a shift in scripts and roles she's offered, she said, "It’s a slow shift, but I think it’s happening. I just got offered a role that was written for a man. In the script, it’s still a man. I think it’s so cool that they didn’t feel the need to change it. They just said, 'It’s a man, but it’ll play the same.'" She added, "I as a black woman with braids and tattoos shouldn’t only be able to play a hippie; I should also be able to play a lawyer or a doctor or a comedian or whatever it is. Gay, straight, all the things. We should start opening our minds about what it looks like to be a person living in 2018."

Twitter couldn't get over Kravitz's beautiful images, like @LaurenAlexis who noted how casual it is to flawlessly slay with a pack of wolves:

Others like @RossMrtn needed to share the Black girl trilogy of Tessa Thompson, Janelle Monaé, and Zoë Kravitz:
