...It's because her mom, The Cosby Show and A Different World actress Lisa Bonet, covered the same issue 30 years ago!

In fact, Zoë's stripped down photograph was directly inspired by the stunning nude photograph featured in her mom's 1988 cover story.

"Life | imitates | art," Zoë wrote in a recent Instagram caption.

Cute, right?! Well, keeping with the whole "Awwww" theme, Zoë revealed in the interview that she and her boyfriend, fellow actor Karl Glusman, have actually been engaged since February!

As Rolling Stone contributing writer Josh Eells writes: "We stop at an ice cream shop, where she orders vegan mint-chocolate-chip in a cone. At which point I notice, for the first time, the huge diamond on her left ring finger. 'Oh yeah, I’m engaged,' she says, so casually I assume she’s joking. 'No, I’m engaged!' she repeats. 'I haven’t told anyone yet — I mean, I haven’t told the world. I wanted to keep it private.' "

According to the actress, Karl had planned on proposing in Paris, but a work conflict caused him to change plans and ultimately pop the question in their Brooklyn apartment. “He nailed it,” she told Eells. “And I love that it wasn’t this elaborate plan in Paris. It was at home, in sweatpants.”

“I can be my weirdest self around him,” the 29-year-old star added. “It’s so relaxing to be around someone where you can be a hundred percent how you feel.”

Zoë's cover story also delves into a bunch of personal topics, including her colorful upbringing as the child of an iconic TV actress and an international rockstar, Lenny Kravitz; her gradual journey into acting and music; and her views on race relations in Hollywood.

She recalled waking up to Ashton Kutcher cooking omelets in her family home—where Mick Jagger often hung out—and going to the movies with her (at the time) almost-step-mom and current Big Little Lies co-star Nicole Kidman. “She was nice, she was cool,” the Fantastic Beasts actress said. “But yeah . . . that happened [...] It was funny to be on set with her. Like, 'Remember when you were engaged to my dad?’ ”

Zoë even opened up about her mom's famously contentious relationship with Bill Cosby, who played her TV father in the series that launched teenage Lisa's career: "Her and him never got along."

"Whether he was attracted to her, or he resented her having a mind of her own, she always got a weird vibe from him," Zoë said. "A dark vibe." Speaking of a "really disturbing" photograph that she recently discovered of herself on the Cosby Show set as a baby, she noted: "His face is not a sweet face at all. It’s kind of creepy."

As for the future, in addition to reprising her role as Bonnie Carlson on Big Little Lies season two, the star revealed that she's been cast as the lead in an upcoming High Fidelity-reboot on Disney's new streaming service. John Cusack played the lead character in the 2000 film.

“I always related to that character,” Zoë told Rolling Stone. “Just this neurotic mess of a person who can’t get out of her own way. It’s ironic to me that in a lot of stories men are the complicated, layered characters, when I think women are the most complicated and the most layered. We’re supposed to be perfect and take care of everyone, but sometimes we fall apart and we’re a big ol’ mess. If you don’t see that, you wonder, ‘Am I the only one who’s a fuckin’ mess?’ ”
