Zoë Kravitz Drank Milk Like A Cat In Preparation For Catwoman

A real method actor.

The best thing about the new Batman movie is that Zoë Kravitz is in it — which means a Zoë Kravitz press tour! When she’s not stunning in her many incredible outfits, she can regale us with the cold, hard truths about what it takes to become Catwoman. Which apparently includes drinking milk out of a bowl?

“They were the hardest thing to control during shooting,” she says of the many cats that are in the film. (Okay, I guess I’ll watch it.) “We were doing crazy stunts and that was fine, but getting a cat to stay in one place? Impossible.”


But the real highlight of the interview is when Fallon plays a clip of a seven-year-old tiara-wearing Kravitz singing TLC’s “No Scrubs” while Lenny Kravitz went to the bathroom during a VH1 interview. A star was born...
