In a clip from last night’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Zoë Kravitz made her ill-feeling towards Lily Allen very known.
She was on the show to promote her new flick Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald with her co-star Eddie Redmayne when a fan called in to ask if Allen had told Kravitz she’d be writing about her – and threadworms – in her memoir, My Thoughts Exactly, and how exactly the kiss described came about.
Kravitz sasses immediately, asking, “Who’s Lily Allen?”
Meanwhile, Eddie Redmayne is very positive about his countrywoman Allen: “She’s the voice of a generation by the way. I love Lily Allen.”
Kravitz shuts that right down: “No, you don’t.”
She eventually decides to address the question: “If by kissing she means attacking, then yes, she kissed me.”
Cohen, who obviously did not know about the pair’s history, tries to tease out how Allen wrote about the moment in her book. “It was portrayed—,” he begins.
Kravitz cuts him off: “—Like I wanted it.”
Finally Cohen asks whether or she read the memoir, to which Kravitz responds with this witty barb: “I don’t think anybody read the book.”
In My Thoughts Exactly, Allen wrote that she and Kravitz “became friends” when Kravitz’ band Lolawolf supported her on the Sheezus tour in NYC in 2014.
“Zoë and I went out partying and ended up kissing. I heard that later that same night she’d got down with A$AP Rocky. Go girl, I thought.”
Allen’s kids had come to visit her in Washington, but she’d had to go back to NYC for work, where she’d kissed Kravitz. But when returned to the capital, she found out that her kids had threadworms, which meant she likely had them too.
“I wondered whether I should ring or text Zoë and ask her in turn to alert A$AP Rocky about the problem. I decided against it.”
It’s an incident Allen says she finds funny, but maybe, Kravitz, who very well might’ve gotten threadworms from it, doesn’t think it’s such a laugh.
Allen writes candidly in My Thoughts Exactly about struggling with impulsive, self-destructive behaviour while on that tour, and being desperate to be desired by other people, perceiving that everyone was into her even when they weren’t. She’s very frank about how her actions and lack of self-confidence fed into the end of her marriage.
But this tea from Zoë Kravitz just illuminates how differently two people can view one situation – and that maybe you should clear intimate stories before you publish them for the world??? Eeek.
