The Batman actress Zoë Kravitz has defended comments about being a 'nepo baby'.

There has been a lot of discourse online about celebrities in the entertainment industry who also happen to have successful parents in the field.

These people have been dubbed 'nepo babies', short for nepotism babies.

Now, Kravitz, who is the daughter of actress Lisa Bonet and actor-musician Lenny Kravitz, has spoken about the subject in an interview with GQ.

Defending being a 'nepo baby', she said: 'It's completely normal for people to be in the family business. It's literally where last names came from. You were a blacksmith if your family was, like, the Black family.'

Kravitz also talked about how, ever since she was a teenager, she has harboured a 'deep insecurity' about being in the entertainment industry because her parents are famous.

However, she stated that she was proud that she got to follow in her parents' footsteps, as well as those of her grandmother, the pioneering Black actor Roxie Roker.

Meanwhile, the actor recently opened up about whether her hit show Big Little Lies, which also starred Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Nicole Kidman, will get a third season.

After season two ended, the world was hit by a global pandemic, and the show also tragically lost its showrunner and director Jean-Marc Vallée, which basically put a stop to any plans that had ever materialised.

Speaking on a Q&A hosted by GQ, Kravitz all but confirmed that Big Little Lies isn’t coming back: 'I don't think it is. We talked about doing a season three a lot and, unfortunately, Jean-Marc Vallée, our incredible director, passed away this last year and I just can't imagine going on without him.

'He really was the visionary for that show. So, unfortunately, it's done,' she added.
