She is of half African-American (from her father's mother and her mother's father) and half Ashkenazi Jewish (from her father's father and her mother's mother) descent.

She recently wrapped shooting in New York on her first lead roles in the films, Beware the Gonzo (2010), opposite Amy Sedaris, Campbell Scott and Ezra Miller, and Yelling to the Sky (2011), the story of "Sweetness O'Hara", who has a sometimes-absent father and a present but mentally unstable mother.
Outside of her 
film endeavors, Kravitz has kept busy with various projects. She served as lead singer and co-writer with her band, "Elevator Fight". Kravitz is also the new face of Vera Wang's "Princess" perfume. The campaign launches in November 2009. Zoe starred in 2008 in Jay Z music video for his single, "I Know", off his "American Gangster" album.
