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:

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.

The celebrity further stated that she felt strongly about remaining as media free as possible as she loved it better when her children could go off and play for hours making paper airplanes.

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the November-born actress said she did not always feel welcome in her school or her mother's family, which made her withdrawn.

During a talk session with Sanjiv Bhattacharya, Bonet explained that she found her escape in acting after struggling with being a misfit for years.
