Lenny Kravitz GOES SHIRTLESS For "INTERVIEW" Magazine's March 2012 Issue

Lenny Kravtiz was interviewed by Raphael Saadiq in the latest issue of "INTERVIEW" Magazine.  See highlights from their conversation inside...

Lenny Kravtiz has always been a trendsetter when it comes to music, and now he's making moves in Hollywood. 

In the latest issue of "INTERVIEW" Magazine, Lenny gets interviewed by musician Raphael Saadiq and they talk about his roles in both Precious and Hunger Games.  Here are the highlights.....


RAPHAEL SAADIQ: So how did you wind up in Hunger Games?

LENNY KRAVITZ: Gary [Ross] saw Precious and said that he liked the character of Nurse John, so he thought I’d be right for the role in Hunger Games since Cinna is somebody who is looking out for somebody and is a support figure, too. So he called me down here in the Bahamas— I was actually making the album at the time. He said, “Hi, I’m making this movie called The Hunger Games. I think you’d be great. If you want it, you’ve got the part.” No audition. I was really flattered, but I had not read the book. So I downloaded it. I remember I started it late one night and I needed to go to bed—I was tired and had been recording all day and night—but I couldn’t stop reading because I was captured by the story. So I finished the book and called him back and said, “I’d love to do it.” You know, the film definitely represents these times—from government on down to reality television. It’s interesting that we’re living in these times. Really, when you go back to being in junior high school and reading George Orwell’s 1984, you’re, like, “Man, here were are . . .” Our characters have changed, our sensibilities. We’re definitely morphing into something different.

SAADIQ: Do you think anything like The Hunger Games could ever actually happen?

KRAVITZ: You know what’s funny? A lot of reality television started in Europe—things like Big Brother, where you had random people living in a house together and all this stuff started happening. And then you had all the gladiator stuff and the competitions. I remember saying, “One day we’re going to watch people fight to the death, like Roman times. Instead of being in a coliseum, we’re going to watch it on TV .” It sounds like a really far-fetched and politically incorrect statement at this point, but who knows how twisted we’re going to get? Because our appetite grows, our thirst for excitement . . . So who knows in the next 50 years where we’re gonna go? Hopefully we’ll go somewhere smarter and more beautiful and more peaceful, but that’s not where we’re headed at the moment. Things that would shock us years ago are like nothing now.

Lenny is the total package!!

Lenny is the total package!! Gorgeous, artistic, articulate and passionate. The older he gets, the better he gets. Guys in the entertainment industry half his age need to take copious notes because I doubt many of them will be relevant when they are pushing 50 like he is.

He's hotter than some guys

He's hotter than some guys half his age and way more intelligent than most of the male entertainers featured here. I love his music and he's a great actor too-- oh and he is not aging at all.

I think Lenny has come a long

I think Lenny has come a long way but I find it a little funny that now all of a sudden he wants to act and get super fit which is good but after being around his ex Lisa Bonet and her new Super Handsome and Sexy Younger New Man who also acts. I think Lenny was feeling a little bit short standing next to Jason at his movie premieres and a little less fit and little older around Mr. Jason Momoa. Let's face it men get just as intimidated as women sometimes get around a younger and more attractive & super fit individual. It's all good there's nothing like a little friendly competion to light some new fire in you and handsome Jason Momoa is just the breathe takingly beautiful man to do it. I must say Lisa B has great taste in men!

seems like nobody has read

seems like nobody has read about what he said...i liked it by the way...thought I was the only one thinking George Orwell's "1984" reloaded- or society has changed and I'd love to read more of this interview- sonds like he has a good head on his shoulders...as to his looks: he's not my type but I think he's that type of man that could become anybody's type just because he has the everything for everyone...the black, the rock. the freeminded soul, the thinker, the songwriter, the father, the sexgod etc...yo can not put him in a box...that's very magnetic.

In the words of the old

In the words of the old ladies "That's a fine lookin man right there chil" oh it's so nice to see a black man who's not calling us "bitches" and "hoes" and so frickin pressed with walking around with WHITE women or ANY WOMEN that's NOT black! Even though Lisa Bonet may have been a little on the "different" side - at least she was a sista. I think it's so disrespectful when these rappers parade these white,latino,asian women around like BLACK women aren't the reason they are famous. Don't even get me started! anywho..LENNY! LENNY! LENNY!
