When actor Dax Shepard asked Zoë Kravitz if she embraced her name or ran from it during an interview on his “Armchair Expert” podcast in May 2020, “The Batman” actor admitted that she thought about not using the recognizable surname, instead trading it for her middle name, Isabella. “I kind of tried to do it, but it just like didn’t stick. People kept on forgetting,” she explained, according to E! News. “No one was responding to this idea I had. I would tell my agent and it just wasn’t happening.”

Also, her father Lenny Kravitz was decidedly not onboard with the idea. “I also think I mentioned it to my dad at one point and I think I could feel that it made him a little sad,” Zoë added. “I did used to be really insecure about people just associating me with my family and now I love it — I’m so proud of them and it’s cool.”

And the feeling’s clearly mutual, as Lenny showered his daughter with praise after she hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the first time. “To see you shine in the same building where your grandparents met and worked was surreal. You were perfection. I love you endlessly,” Lenny wrote on Instagram alongside pics of him supporting Zoë backstage.
