Zoe Kravitz: “Don’t Call Me An ‘It’ Girl!”

With a lead role in the new superhero blockbuster X-Men: First Class, celebutot Zoe Kravitz hopes to soon be as famous for her acting as she is for her uber-cool wardrobe.

“All that ‘it girl’ shit makes me kind of uncomfortable. I’m only at the beginning of my career, but I feel successful in that I haven’t sold out in any way, shape or form. I feel good about the choices I’ve made, and I don’t feel like I’ve let go of any of my values. Fame has become this obsession for people, which kind of creeps me out,” the 22-year-old daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and former Cosby Kid Lisa Bonet, tells the July issue of ASOS Magazine (on newsstands June 3).

First Class isn’t just Zoe’s first outing as an actress, it set the stage for her first meeting with boyfriend Michael Fassbender. The couple met on set last year and have been quietly dating ever since. They’rerarely seen together, but an unusual display of public affection, Michael and Zoe were spotted together, holding hands, in New York’s West Village over the weekend. On Sunday, Zoe and Michael joined a group of friends for brunch before embarking on a romantic stroll.

“They’re really low-key, but they have a great time together just talking music or movies,” a blab tells Us Weekly. “They really didn’t want to be a topic of conversation during the press for X-Men.”

Apparently, the pair’s 12 year age difference is only a problem for other people.

“Zoe really mature for her age in that she has very strong opinions and she is very confident in herself. Most people are shocked to learn she’s so young; she doesn’t really bring it up and age would never stop her from dating anybody,” the source added. “For how good looking and smart he is, Michael’s pretty shy. She is actually the one taking care of him most the time. She really respects his talent.”
