Actress Zoe Kravitz sent her mother, Lisa Bonet, a sweet message on social media on the latter's birthday on November 16. She also shared a throwback snap proving that she can pass off as her mother’s twin.
Apart from being the legendary singer Lenny Kravitz's daughter, Zoe Kravtiz knows where she inherited her age-defying look. She owes it to her mother of coolness, Lisa Bonet.
As Bonet turned 53, Zoe took to Instagram to share an old snap of her mother, which could plant seeds of doubt whether the two are really a mother-daughter duo or twin sisters.
THEIR INCREDIBLE RESEMBLANCE
In the jaw-dropping picture, young Zoe is sleeping on Bonet’s lap. The "The Cosby Show" star wore a loose shirt and a black beret cap while letting a few strands of hair flow down her shoulders.
Aside from being an ageless woman, Bonet’s coolness and no-fuss fashion have remained timeless. She sported a silver nose ring while leaving her face makeup-free. In the caption, Zoe wrote:
"she don't have instagram cuz she's cooler than all of us. happy birthday twin ? #mama (sic)"
The stunning picture fetched several comments on Zoe’s post as many agreed that the 31-year-old actress and Bonet share a striking resemblance in both looks and fashion.
One female fan noted that she thought the woman in the picture was Zoe, but she realized it was Bonet after a second look. Another fan wrote that Bonet is the "goddess among the mortals."
The duo’s likeness goes beyond fashion as the “Catwoman” star has been following in her mother’s footsteps in acting.
ADMIRATION FROM CELEBRITIES
Fans were not the only ones blown away by Zoe’s picture; one female celebrity also took to the comment section to share her thoughts after she saw the mother-daughter tandem’s iconic image.
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Alicia Keys could not help but note that Bonet and Zoe looked exactly like twin sisters. She wrote "crazy," followed with several exclamation marks.
Bonet is celebrated online for having a wonderful relationship with her now-husband Jason Momoa and ex-husband Lenny. The three have gained massive admiration from fans.
ADMIRING MOTHER-DAUGHTER BOND
It was not only Keys who was astounded by Zoe and Bonet; actress Gabrielle Union also admired the pair not only for their looks but their incredible strong bond as mother and daughter.
Bonet has always been Zoe’s forever style icon. But the duo’s likeness goes beyond fashion as the "Catwoman" star has been following in her mother’s footsteps in acting.
Last year, Zoe starred in the television series “High Fidelity,” but unfortunately, it was canceled. The romance-drama show was a reboot of a 2000 film which starred Bonet.
Being a part of a well-blended family with a diverse background, Zoe said in a past interview that the issue of race and skin color is not a big deal in the entertainment industry.
Her realization happened after she learned that her grandmother, actress Roxie Roker, was married to a white man. The actress is doing her part in representing people of color in the Hollywood scene.
