Zoe Kravitz is sharing some intimate experiences while filming some of her most notorious roles, including the award-winning series Big Little Lies. The series, which also starred Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep, was filmed in California in an area Kravitz said wasn't always welcoming to her.

Zoe Kravitz says she felt uncomfortable

While filing Big Little Lies, Kravitz said she wasn't always feeling like she was very welcomed in the town where they filmed. During her interview with The Observer, the young actress got real about her experience.

The community of Monterey, which is highly affluent and mostly inhabited by white folks, Kravitz said she felt a little out of place on her days off of filming the drama series. 

"There were a few moments where I felt a little uncomfortable because it is such a white area. Just weird racist people in bars and things like that," she said. 

She also went on to say that her character was originally made for a white woman. But despite that, Kravitz landed the role and said that it helped her embrace her Blackness.

Previously, Kravitz shared that she was a bit "uncomfortable" with her Blackness, but as she's gotten older and has come more into herself as an actress and a woman, she said she wants to "scream it from the rooftops".

But, her hesitancy surrounding this likely came from her parents' experiences growing up, particularly her grandmother. 

She said she really embraced it because it helped her "realize what it meant for my grandmother [Roxie Albertha Roker] to get a job on The Jeffersons and be a Black woman on TV, and what it meant for her to be in a biracial relationship on television."

She continued, "To hear stuff that my mother [Lisa Bonet] tells me about being a biracial girl in the 1970s, and being abused or being spit on, and what that felt like, you know?" 

Although she said her parents never "warned" her about the racism in Hollywood, her parents raised her with the true belief that she could do anything, despite her skin colour.
