Kravitz is not sure if it was Christopher Nolan. But someone from the team rejected her because of the colour of her skin. Read on to know everything you should know about the same.
As per The Guardian, Zoë Kravitz expressed how the moment was hard. She said, “I don’t know if it came directly from Chris Nolan. I think it was probably a casting director of some kind, or a casting director’s assistant… Being a woman of colour and being an actor and being told at that time that I wasn’t able to read because of the colour of my skin, and the word urban being thrown around like that, that was what was really hard about that moment.”
