Now that’s a friend! Zoe Kravitz reveals when she was lonely in London Taylor Swift made her home-cooked meals: ‘She was a very important part of my being there’
Zoe Kravitz has credited Taylor Swift with helping her through the COVID-19 lockdowns.
The actress found herself a long way from home during the pandemic as she had been shooting The Batman in London but she had a friend near by as Taylor was in town with her boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
Zoe told GQ being able to spend time with the singer was a huge comfort. ‘She was my pod [bubble]. She was a very important part of being in London, just having a friend that I could see and that would make me home-cooked meals and dinner on my birthday.’

Taylor was also full of praise for her pal in an email to GQ, writing: ‘Zoe’s sense of self is what makes her such an exciting artist, and such an incredible friend,’ Swift said.
‘She has this very honest inner compass, and the result is art and life without compromising who she is.’
It was previously revealed that Taylor also helped her friend take part in a photo shoot for New York Times Magazine during 2020 as she was able to assist because she was in a COVID-19 bubble – a linked support network – with Zoe.

Sharing so much: Zoe made the comments to GQ; in the same issue she talked her beau Channing Tatum
New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein told WWD: ‘Zoe was being very strict about [social distancing guidelines] anyway because she’s shooting [The Batman], and Taylor Swift was in her pod and willing to assist.’
As well as spending time together during the pandemic, the two friends also worked together with Zoe co-writing the song Lavender Haze for Taylor’s new album Midnights as well as providing backing vocals.
She also sang on another track for Taylor called Glitch which features on the extended edition of the record.

In the same GQ interview, Zoe has gushed over boyfriend Channing Tatum and revealed she is unsure on whether to have children in a candid new interview.
She discussed her relationship with 42-year-old Magic Mike actor Channing – whom she affectionately referred to as ‘Chan’ – and branded him a ‘wonderful human.’
The star also touched on why she divorced 34-year-old husband Karl Glusman last year after two years of marriage.
The High Fidelity star said Tatum was incredibly supportive of her directorial debut, P*ssy Island.
Kravitz also talked about a now famous photo of the couple riding down the street on a bike, Tatum pedaling and Kravitz with her arms wrapped loosely around his neck.
‘I was sweating and he was like, “Get on the bike, I’ll ride you over and you can relax,”‘ she admitted, before adding, ‘You want to keep it sacred and private as long as you can.’

When asked about her divorce, the Divergent actress said she had ‘romanticized’ domestic life, but realized she might not want such a life for herself with children.
‘I just learned to think about who I am and what I want. You meet someone who’s amazing and wants to marry you, and there’s nothing wrong with that,’ she explained.
‘If there’s nothing wrong, then why wouldn’t you do it?’ she asked.
‘You love them and that’s what you do. It’s a hard question to ask yourself: “Maybe I don’t want the thing that I’m supposed to want, a marriage, children, any of it. I don’t know if I want that at all.” That’s an uncomfortable question, especially for a woman to ask herself.’
Channing is already a father to daughter Everly, nine, who he shares with ex-wife Jenna Dewan.
