Zoe Kravitz says she gets 'offended' when people assume she will have a baby

Zoe Kravitz has opened up about her frustration at being pressured by society to have a baby.

This week, the Big Little Lies actress discussed the topic after she was asked if she will have a baby during an interview with Dax Shepard on his podcast, Armchair Expert.

According to Kravitz, who married husband Karl Glusman in 2019, she used to find the question “triggering” because it is “the first thing people ask you” when you get married.

She also acknowledged that the question is often directed towards women, not men, which she said is “a little annoying”.

“A lot of people ask the question: 'When are you gonna have a baby?' or say things like: 'When's the baby?' and I really get offended by people assuming that's something that I have to do because society says so," the 31-year-old told Shepard.

During the interview, Kravitz also explained that right now her priorities are her career and her free time.

“Right now, I'm certainly not in a place where I think I'm able to do that just cause of work and also just, man, I don't know, I like my free time," she said.

In response to Kravitz’s answer, Shepard, who shares two children with wife Kristen Bell, jokingly advised the actress to “go to every country” before becoming a parent.

“See it all, do it all,” the Parenthood actor said.

Kravitz and Glusman dated for two years before announcing their engagement in 2018.

In 2020, the actress opened up about married life in an interview with Elle, where she revealed “the best part of being married is being able to have the odd fight and knowing neither of us is going to walk out the door.”

“The commitment feels safe,” she added.
