Kravitz, 56, says he is very disappointed about where we are as a country in terms of race. Born to a Black mother and Jewish father, Kravitz told writer Alex Pappademas he is not impressed with our country’s progress on the subject.

“I’ve been talking about this stuff,” says Kravitz . “I would have thought we’d be in such a better place than we are now. That we would have evolved. Not that it would have been anything close to perfect.”

When COVID-19 hit America in March, Kravitz decided to head to the Bahamas until the madness died down and has been laying low in Eleuthera ever since. He’s living a minimalist lifestyle, eating off the land, and working out almost every day.

“When I’m here, I pretty much live that way anyway,” he said. “It’s a beautiful thing to really realize what you don’t need. If I have to stay here another five months, five years, I’m good.”

Kravitz may be living on an island alone now but at one time he was married to Cosby Show star Lisa Bonet. The two eloped in 1987, had their daughter, actress Zoë Kravitz in 1988, and were divorced by 1993. Bonet remarried actor Jason Momoa in 2017. Despite their breakup, Kravitz says he is a fan of Bonet’s new husband.

“People can’t believe how tight Jason and I are, or how tight I still am with Zoë’s mom, how we all relate,” Kravitz tells the magazine. “We just do it because that’s what you do. You let love rule, right? I mean, obviously, after a breakup, it’s work—it takes some work and time, healing and reflection, et cetera. But as far as Jason and I? Literally the moment we met, we were like, ‘Oh, yeah. I love this dude.’ ”
