She was born the daughter of rock n’ roll icon and sex symbol Lenny Kravitz and a teenage television star, Lisa Bonet and lived in the shadows of those two for her teenage years.  Now she’s 28 years old, and ready to define her name on her own terms—in fashion, in film, in music—and to step from behind the shadows of her famous parents.

But those steps haven’t been without a stumble here and there. One of them being an eating disorder. Common for Hollywood celebrities.

“I had a really hard time when I was 16, 17, 18. I started with the eating disorder in high school,” Zoe explains. “She trails off at this, and puts her hand to the side of her face, rubbing her right ear, and then dials back to the beginning of that thought: “Just [a hard time] loving myself.”
