Though, if we're being honest, 90% of people in Hollywood are nepo babies to begin with.

Soo, obviously you know Zoë's father is Lenny Kravitz and her mom is Lisa Bonet.

In an interview with GQ, Zoë brought up her "deep insecurity" about not deserving her own success.

"It’s completely normal for people to be in the family business," she said.

"It’s literally where last names came from. You were a blacksmith if your family was, like, the Black family.”

Soooo, I guess that's that?


And honestly, the only thing I'm jealous of Zoë for is the fact that she got to meet Britney Spears on the set of her Oops!... I Did It Again album shoot.
