I feel like whatever I’m supposed to do or get or achieve will happen, and what’s not mine is not mine to have. My grandfather used to tell me when I was a kid, ‘Nobody can take anything away from you that is yours.’ He also used to say, ‘the best is yet to come.

Kravitz & Washington interview

Interview

Kravitz and Washington appear on The Late Show with David Letterman and talk about their boating holiday off the Amalfi Coast, in which Kravitz managed to talk Washington into watching his own films. Kravitz:

I got him to watch all of his movies. We sat on that boat – John Q, Man on Fire, Malcolm X – we watched them all. And what’s great is that you get the commentary.

Washington:

I was good, too. I was like, “Wow, I’m good!”

InterviewTV Appearance

Kravitz talks about his life growing up as biracial, a famous mother and his music career. He also explains what love and success means to him.

The idea of having to conform to someone else’s ideal is unacceptable. I’m gonna be me. And if I can’t be me, then I’d rather not do it.

Elle Magazine interview

Kravitz gives interview to Elle about what his mom taught him about being a man.

That it’s about honor and respect. I was, like, 13, and my mom had to go to some party. She said, “Lenny, I want you to wash these dishes and put them away.” So she leaves, I wash the dishes, and put them away. About three in the morning, I get awakened by this tap on my head, and she drags me to the kitchen. One cabinet door is open about an inch, right? And she points at the door and says, “Close the cabinet.” I was completely pissed off and couldn’t believe this woman would drag me out of bed. But that was what follow-through was about. If it weren’t for these kinds of lessons, I wouldn’t be here doing what I’m doing.
