Zoe Kravitz has credited Taylor Swift with helping her through COVID-19 lockdowns.
The actress found herself away from home during the pandemic as she was filming The Batman in London, but had a friend nearby as Taylor was in town with her boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
Zoe told GQ that being able to hang out 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 I could see who would make me home cooked meals and dinner on my birthday.

Taylor also praised her pal in an email to GQ, writing, “Zoe’s sense of self is what makes her such an exciting performer and such an amazing friend,” Swift said.
“She has this very honest inner compass, and the result is art and living without compromising who she is.”
It was previously revealed that Taylor also helped her friend participate in a photo shoot for The New York Times Magazine in 2020, as she was able to help as she was in a COVID-19 bubble – a linked support network – with Zoe .

In the same GQ interview, Zoe gushed about her boyfriend Channing Tatum and revealed she wasn’t sure about having kids 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 called him a “wonderful human”.
The star also explained why she divorced her husband of 34 years, 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 spoke about a now-famous photo of the couple riding their bikes down the street, Tatum pedaling and Kravitz with his arms wrapped around his neck.
“I was sweating and he was like, ‘Get on the bike, I’ll ride you and you can relax,'” she admitted, before adding, “You want it to stay sacred and private too as long as you can.

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 is amazing and wants to marry you, and there’s nothing wrong with that,” she explained.
“If there’s nothing wrong, then why don’t you do it?” she asked.
“You love them and that’s what you do. It’s a tough question to ask: “Maybe I don’t want what I’m supposed to want, marriage, kids, none of that. I don’t know if I want that at all.” It’s an uncomfortable question, especially for a woman to ask.
Channing is already the father of nine-year-old daughter Everly, whom he shares with ex-wife Jenna Dewan.
