Zoë Kravitz thinks people consider her to be cool because of her tattoos and clothing choices.

The 28-year-old actress has a number of inkings all over her body and believes some people perceive her in a different way because of the clothes she wears and the tattoos on her skin.  She told The Times: "People think I'm cool because I wear certain clothes and I have tattoos. I've got 20-something inkings and I actually stopped counting. When people get to know me, they're always surprised by how nerdy I am."

Meanwhile, Zoë previously admitted she adopts a low maintenance beauty regime because she wants to be natural and silly looking.

She said: "When I was younger, I had this incredibly rebellious spirit. I just wanted to be natural and silly-looking and not appear perfect all the time - because it's a lot of pressure, you know? On the red carpet, everyone started to look the same, like a Barbie doll, and it made me really uncomfortable.

"So I think I was just about claiming, 'OK, if I'm going to be a part of this world, I want to do it in my own way.' But I think I've found a way to feel comfortable, looking like I put effort into the way I look and still feel like I'm being myself. My braids are really low-maintenance so I use very little hair product. This has a nice scent and is good for freshening everything up."

Zoë doesn't opt for foundation and instead uses YSL's Touche Eclat to brighten her face.  She explained: "I don't wear foundation on a daily basis so this is just wonderful for highlighting and covering. It brightens without looking like you're going out-out. If I'm eating too much sugar or not sleeping enough, I see it in my skin."
