By Reese WitherspoonMay 23, 2022 6:25 AM EDTZoë Kravitz defies definition. She contains multitudes and stands fully formed in her beauty, her intelligence, her grace, her humor, her strength. Part maverick, part savant, mostly just … cool. Cool like Dylan. Cool like Cash. Cool like Nina Simone. Forged by the strength and grace of two incredible artists, but made whole by her own grit and intellect. In her performance as Catwoman, you can see it all. She draws in

She contains multitudes and stands fully formed in her beauty, her intelligence, her grace, her humor, her strength. Part maverick, part savant, mostly just … cool. She goes all in, and she cares a great deal. Cool like Dylan. Sievierodonetsk came under heavy shelling, and Luhansk Governor Serhii Haidai said the Russians were 'simply intentionally trying to destroy the city . Cool like Cash. She’s such a curious individual, hungry for conversations that are important, that are thought-­provoking. Cool like Nina Simone.

Forged by the strength and grace of two incredible artists, but made whole by her own grit and intellect. She is very much a leader, whether she is running a chat group of fellow mothers, organizing an event, or fundraising for causes she cares about. engaging in a scorched-earth approach. In her performance as Catwoman, you can see it all. She draws in , and the whole audience, as they wait to see if this mysterious creature will show her claws. She’s also been very aware of what it must have been for her parents and grandparents and great-­grandparents to have left it all behind. She does—and they are sharp! Working with Zoë on Big Little Lies , I discovered her hidden talent: her humor. Ukrainian officials have said little since the war began about the extent of their country\u0027s casualties, but Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelenskyy said on Sunday that 50 to 100 Ukrainian fighters were being killed – apparently each day – in the east. She made me laugh during endless night shoots and always pushed the comedic tension between our characters onscreen. It is a mission and a responsibility and a blessing.

She brings an edgy humor to all her work—and to dinner parties, if you’re looking for a perfect guest. It would be very easy for Zoë to walk through the world in a different way, entitled and accomplished. What needs to be done? They will take it upon themselves, they will initiate anything and everything in their power to be of service. But that’s not her style. She chooses the path of hard work, constantly innovating and pushing the status quo. She hustles, writes her own scripts, stays up all night until the job is done.

I’ve watched it up close, and it never ceases to amaze me. Zoë has done so much in her career thus far, but what I’m most excited about is all that is coming next. Directing, producing, cutting her own path. But always her way. Always cool.
