Zoe Kravitz went to Instagram Stories to explain the statements she made during an interview about how she was described as being too “urban” to audition for “The Dark Knight Rises.” Prior to being hired as a catwoman in Matt Reeves’ “The Batman”, Kravitz said she faced a casting bias while auditioning for a small role in Christopher Nolan’s 2012 film, eventually losing her job because of her skin color.
Now, however, the actress is resorting to social media to straighten out the record. “I wasn’t told I was too urban to play Catwoman in the Dark Knight,” Zoe, 33, wrote in her March 8 Instagram story. “It didn’t make sense for me at the time to even consider that role. She further clarified,” I wanted to audition for a small part in the film and I was told (I don’t know who said this, but this is it How I was told) that they do not go ‘urban’ on the part. This is something I heard a lot 20 years ago – it was a very different time. “
Kravitz, meanwhile, is being praised for his portrayal of the famous cat-burglar in The Batman, previously played by Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, Artha Kit, Julie Numer and Anne Hathaway. Over the weekend, Picture came in at No. 1 at the American box office, according to People.
