Heard on the Street: Zoe Kravitz on Lisa Bonet’s Relationship with Bill Cosby

Zoey Grossman for Rolling Stone

We now know, indirectly, what Lisa Bonet thought about convicted sex offender Bill Cosby.

“Her and him [sic] never got along. Whether he was attracted to her, or he resented her having a mind of her own, she always got a weird vibe from him. A dark vibe.”

— Zoe Kravitz reveals to Rolling Stone that her mother Lisa Bonet was never a fan of recently convicted sex offender Bill Cosby, despite them working on The Cosby Show and A Different World together. The Big Little Lies star also said she recently found a photograph of Cosby holding her as a baby on set. “It’s actually a really disturbing picture,” she says. “His face is not a sweet face at all. It’s kind of creepy.” Kravitz covers the magazine for the November issue, recreating Bonet’s stripped down photo shot by Matthew Rolston in 1988. However, Bonet’s nude photo was inside the magazine. “I think she was a little bummed when they used the shirt picture as the cover.”
