Zoe Kravitz is one of InStyle’s June cover stars as she joins her Big Little Lies co-stars, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley. The 30-year-old actress and model opens up to the publication not only about what she’s learned from the woman she’s surrounded by on set but also about what success means to her and what makes her feel confident.
“It has never been about fame,” Zoe said when explaining her definition of success. “It’s been about the quality of work and also about being in the position where I’m able to create things from the ground up. The projects kind of become your babies. I think having the opportunity to birth art is success to me.”
As for confidence, Zoe finds it when she knows she’s worked hard, and her co-stars help support her and keep her head up.
“I think a lot of my fears creatively always came from the insecurity that I didn’t earn what I had. Now, after a solid 10 to 15 years of really working hard, I know I’ve earned it,” she explained. “I also have amazing people in my life who support me — my friends, my family, my fiancé [actor Karl Glusman], and all the women on Big Little Lies. They have my back, and I know if I was doing some weird, crazy shit, someone would set me straight. They help whenever I have a moment of panic and confusion, which happens quite often.”
Season two of Big Little Lies premieres June 9th.
