Zoë Kravitz regrets Will Smith slapping comment but hasn’t met Channing Tatum


After Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at this year’s Oscars, Zoë Kravitz posted photos of herself on the red carpet at the event on social media.

“Here is a picture of my dress at the show where we are apparently assaulting people on stage now,” she wrote in the caption.

It didn’t sit well with some on the internet and Kravitz now says, “It’s a scary time to have an opinion or to say the wrong thing or to make controversial art or statements or thoughts or anything.”

“It’s mostly scary because art is about conversation. That should, in my opinion, always be the goal,” she told The Wall Street Journal Magazine. “The Internet is the opposite of conversation. The internet is people posting stuff and taking nothing. »

Thinking about it, Kravitz said she was “torn about what to say right now, because I’m supposed to talk about it; I have very complicated feelings around this.

“I wish I had handled it differently,” she said. “And that’s fine.”

These days, she said, she prefers expressing herself through her art, which includes her directorial debut, “P***y Island.”

One of her stars is her boyfriend, actor Channing Tatum.

He told the publication that he didn’t know Kravitz before the project, but had full confidence in his handling of the film.

“Of the people I could name who I think have a real chance of getting out of the door doing something really distinctive and strong, she’s at the top of the list,” he said. “That said, you really don’t know someone until they show up on day one as a director.”
