Zoë Kravitz: My ‘high Fidelity’ Producers Wanted Me to Be Less Angry and Toxic!


Kravitz said the short-lived Hulu series was meant to show that women could be sexist.

Zoe Kravitz continues to discuss why Hulu canceled “High Fidelity.”

The 2020 series stars Kravitz as Rob, a gender-swapped record store owner who revisits her top five heartbreaks (Kingsley Ben-Adir). The novel “High Fidelity” was adapted for a John Cusack film in 2000. The one-season Hulu series was canceled.

Kravitz told GQ she had to fight the producers to be as nasty as she was. “They wanted to relax. When I exclaimed “What fucking Lily girl?” at the end of Episode 2, they asked, “Can you be less angry?” When I thought about beating Lily, they said, “That’s violent.”

They wanted it to be this adorable, endearing depiction of this dreadful character, Kravitz continued. The purpose was to demonstrate that ladies were also capable of becoming jerks.

The “Batman” actress added that she felt “out of control” as a result of the cancellation of the series. Kravitz co-wrote an episode and executive produced “High Fidelity.”

The “Big Little Lies” alum continued, “If you make something and no one likes it and it’s not good, then it makes sense.” But when people relate to it, it’s depressing. I experienced a severe lack of control.

In a previous interview with Elle, Kravitz said that the cancellation of the series was “a big mistake” and that Hulu “didn’t realize what that show was and what it could do.”

With “Pussy Island,” a psychological thriller set in the wake of the #MeToo movement and starring Channing Tatum and Naomi Ackie, Kravitz will now make her directorial debut. The script was co-written by Kravitz and “High Fidelity” author E.T. Feigenbaum. According to Kravitz, the movie, which Tatum also co-produced, was inspired by “a lot of anger and frustration about the lack of conversation about the treatment of women, specifically in industries that have a lot of money in them, like Hollywood, the tech world, and all of that.”

“High Fidelity” is still available to stream on Hulu in all its fleeting brilliance.

Channing Tatum, According to Zo Kravitz, Served as Her “Protector” While She Was Filming Her Directorial Debut!

Combining their personal and professional lives is excellent for Channing Tatum and Zo Kravitz.

Kravitz discussed her connection with Tatum, whom she met while filming her upcoming directorial debut “Pussy Island,” in an interview with GQ that was published on Tuesday.

We both enjoy art, talking about art, and examining why we do what we do, Kravitz told the publication. “He makes me laugh,” she added. We enjoy watching movies, dissecting them, debating them, and engaging in friendly competition.

Tatum plays Slater King in the film “Pussy Island,” a “nefarious tech millionaire” with a “hedonistic private island.” Geena Davis, Haley Joel Osment, and Christian Slater are also slated to appear in the suspenseful film.

Kravitz acknowledged Tatum’s significant assistance in guiding her through the “frantic” filmmaking process.
He truly was my protector, which Kravitz recalled as being “wonderful and sweet.” “Whether it was making me tea or pouring me a drink or going to whip someone into shape or whatever,” she said. “I think it’s a good test whether you can work together to accomplish something like that. And we emerged even more powerful.

In a February interview with USA TODAY, Tatum, who was married to actress Jenna Dewan from 2009 to 2019, was enthused by Kravitz’s artistic abilities.

Kravitz, in the words of Tatum, “is a wonderful artist.” She’s one of the most deliberate people I’ve ever encountered, and it extends to both her art and the way she simply moves through the world. She will make an excellent director.

Kravitz previously told WSJ. Magazine that she’s “really grateful” Tatum came into her life through her film. Kravitz was previously married to actor Karl Glusman from 2019 to 2021.

As Kravitz put it at the time, “making things with people is a very sacred space, and when you’re compatible creatively with someone it often opens up other channels, because you’re kind of sharing all of yourself.”

Kravitz said in an interview with GQ about her marriage to Glusman that it made her reflect on herself in a meaningful way.


Kravitz said, “I’ve only recently learned to reflect on who I am and what I want. “There is nothing wrong if you meet someone wonderful who wants to marry you. Why wouldn’t you do it if there is nothing wrong with it?

“Maybe I don’t want the thing that I’m supposed to want, a marriage, children, any of it,’ is a difficult question to ask yourself, she continued. I’m not sure if I even want that. That is a strange question to ask oneself, especially a woman.
