Remember When Zoe Kravitz Received Flak After Commenting on Will Smith’s Oscar Slapgate?

Zoe Kravitz is having a difficult time expressing herself after criticizing Will Smith. The 33-year-old actress who appeared in movies like Mad Max, The Batman, and Rough Night grew up in the limelight herself. The celebrity child was born to singer Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet. Like other celebrities, she was quite active on social media and often got candid in her interviews.

The actress landed herself in a pickle when she put her Oscars photo with the captions angrily hinting against Will Smith’s slap gate incident. Instead of getting acknowledgment from fans, she was confronted with her past interview, where she spoke about Jaden Smith. In a recent interview, she opens up about both incidents.

How criticizing Will Smith landed Zoe Kravitz in trouble

People, especially celebrities, are under constant watch over anything they say on social media these days, and no one knows it better than Zoe Kravitz. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, the actress opened up on her thoughts now. “I have very complicated feelings around it. I wish I had handled that differently,” she said in an interview.

The actress talked about how it is a difficult time to express opinions or say something risky. Also adding that, “I think I’m in a place right now where I don’t want to express myself through a caption or a tweet.”

But what initially led to criticism was her comments on Jaden Smith. Years ago, the actress talked about hanging out with 14-year-old Smith’s son when she was 24. She described how handsome he was and how they will hang out once he was older. The severe backlash she faced was for making these inappropriate comments about Jaden, who was still a minor.

Today, Kravitz reminds herself about being an artist. Artists need to express themselves whether people like it or not, even though canceling or criticizing celebrities over remarks and actions cause big uproar now. After all, the I Am Legend actor is still facing the consequences of his actions.
