It’s Monday morning! See why we’re grabbing the instant coffee:
- It’s hard not to think of Zoe Kravitz as the new “it” girl, but she’s appearing all over the place! “X-Men” opened this weekend with a whopping $56 million at the box office. If that weren’t enough, she’s speaking with ASOS magazine about growing up with famous parents and more. “All that ‘it’ girl s***t makes me kind of uncomfortable. I’m in a very lucky position because I’ve been around [fame] so long, I don’t feel the need to chase it.” she said. “My dad was brought up very old school, very strict… so he’s wearing leather pants and a boa, but he would be like, ‘Did you do your chores today?’ Or… ‘Yes there’s a party going on with Mick Jagger and some models, but it’s your bedtime.'” [The Frisky] [CNN]
