Graphic Liner: How to Take the Bold Eye Look From Runway to Real Way

21 July 2015 6:51 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

In the realm of all things style, there's a fine line between couture and costume. Case met point when we tried replicating the bold graphic eye looks from the latest crop of runway shows. Let's just say E! HQ started to look a lot like Comic-Con. The truth is colorful or graphic eye looks are a tad unrealistic. Artistic and beautiful, the precise lines and shapes are a little severe for a grocery store run. There are, after all, only a few celebs—Emma Stone, Zoë Kravitz and Sophia Bush included—that dare attempt the trend with winning results. Thankfully, E! Style Collective's Tina Turnbow, makeup artist to stars like Laura Prepon and Keri Russell, explained how to translate the trend »

16 July 2015 7:24 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Zoe Kravitz is talented and about as stunning as they come, but... The 26-year-old singer-actress has learned that, in Hollywood, her look isn't always what the casting agents have in mind. "In the last Batman movie, they told me that I couldn't get an audition for a small role they were casting because they weren't 'going urban,'" Nylon's August cover girl told the mag about trying to get a role in The Dark Knight Rises, which came out in 2012. "It was like, 'What does that have to do with anything?' I have to play the role like, 'Yo, what's up, Batman? What's going on wit chu?'" Kravitz's career has come a long way since, but even she »

16 July 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The concluding chapter to Christopher Nolan.s celebrated Batman trilogy in 2012.s The Dark Knight Rises showcased a number of intriguing female characters. However, one notable actress who was unsuccessful in an apparent attempt to join that group was Zoë Kravitz. In a recent interview, the actress reveals the rather offensive reason she was allegedly given for her failure to land the Gotham City gig. In an interview with Nylon, Kravitz discusses her personal mandate to pick roles that progress the poignancy of female characters. However, despite being the daughter of rocker/actor Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, the 26 year-old actress claims to actually hit occasional roadblocks when it comes to her mixed ethnicity. Kravitz reveals that in an attempt to simply audition for a role in The Dark Knight Rises, her chances apparently fell victim to some horrendous stereotyping.

Zoe Kravitz Was Told She Was Too "Urban" For A Role In The Dark Knight Rises

16 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

26-year-old Zoe Kravitz (daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet) first came to our attention playing Angel Salvador in X-Men: First Class, and has since gone on to give memorable turns in the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road, Insurgent, Dope and The Road Within. With several other big movies lined up, Zoe's star is most certainly on the rise, but there was a time when landing the good roles wasn't quite so easy. In an interview with Nylon the actress recalls losing out on an audition for The Dark Knight Rises, seemingly based on her racial background and nothing else. “In the last Batman movie, they told me that I couldn’t get an audition for a small role they were casting because they weren’t ‘going urban,’” she says. “It was like, ‘What does that have to do with anything?’ I have to play the role like, ‘Yo, »

Zoe Kravitz: I Couldn’t Audition for Dark Knight Rises Because I’m ‘Urban’

15 July 2015 3:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the middle of a remarkably candid time for Hollywood actresses, Zoe Kravitz tells Nylon she was denied the chance to audition for a part in The Dark Knight Rises because she was considered, in the unfortunate euphemism of the day, too "urban." As Kravitz recalled, "they told me that I couldn't get an audition for a small role they were casting because they weren't 'going urban.' It was like, 'What does that have to do with anything?' I have to play the role like, 'Yo, what's up, Batman? What's going on wit chu?'" Which, frankly, would have been preferable to the way Bane spoke. »

The Time Not "Going Urban' Meant Zoë Kravitz Couldn't Audition for a Role in 'Dark Knight Rises'...

15 July 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Lifted from a profile of Zoë Kravitz published in the most recent edition of Nylon magazine (she's their August cover): "While Kravitz has had admirable success in this regard, there have been a few roles she’s lost because of her race, she says. “In the last Batman movie [The Dark Knight Rises], they told me that I couldn’t get an audition for a small role they were casting because they weren’t 'going urban,'" she says. "It was like, 'What does that have to do with anything?' I have to play the role like, 'Yo, what’s up, Batman? What’s going on wit chu?'" Hilarious! Sad, but her response here is funny. But, really, as she wonders, what exactly did »

15 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Zoë Kravitz's film career has been taking off in recent years thanks to parts in X-Men: First Class and Mad Max: Fury Road - but the actress has revealed one role that got away, and for very disappointing reasons.

The actress told Nylon that she was ruled out from appearing in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy closer because they weren't looking to "go urban".

"In the last Batman movie [The Dark Knight Rises], they told me that I couldn't get an audition for a small role they were casting because they weren't 'going urban'," she said.

"It was like, 'What does that have to do with anything?' I have to play the role like, 'Yo, what's up, Batman? What's going on wit chu?'"

Though Kravitz doesn't say which role she was declined for, we're guessing it was that of Selina Kyle's roommate Jen (eventually played by blonde British actress Juno Temple »

Zoë Kravitz's New Boyfriend Looks Distractingly Like Her Dad, Lenny

13 July 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Zoë Kravitz has been previously linked to handsome stars like Chris Pine, Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley, and Drake, but her latest beau is turning heads for a different reason. The singer and actress recently began dating a musician and writer named George Lewis Jr., who goes by the stage name Twin Shadow, and quickly after seeing photos of him on Zoë's social media feeds, we couldn't help but notice how much he looks like her father, rocker Lenny Kravitz. Seriously, there's one hell of a resemblance between the two, from the cropped dreads and facial hair to the tight pants, t-shirts, and hipster headwear. It's also worth noting that Zoë has become the spitting image of her famous mom, Lisa Bonet - so seeing her and Twin Shadow together is basically like a blast to the past to Lenny and Lisa's '90s courtship. Hey, experts do say that »
