PARENTING THROUGH DIVORCE

Things took a sad turn when the actress and Kravitz divorced. She shared that even six years after the divorce from her ex-husband, it was still saddening, but there was no room for recriminations as Zoe became her priority. She said:

"I didn't want to pass on those heirlooms and this fresh wound of a divorce. I think there are probably times when these thresholds can either sink you.."

Focusing on her daughter, shelter became a problem for the duo as an earthquake in 1994 put mother and child on the streets. But with the help of Bonet's late mother, she found a ranch where she took abode.

Reflecting on her history as a child, the November-born actress said she did not always feel welcome in her school or her mother's family, which made her withdrawn.
