Last year, the internet was single-handedly broken by Zoë Kravitz posing naked on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The fact that it was a tribute to her mother, Lisa Bonet, and her identical shoot thirty years ago made the whole thing even more badass, but it turns out that all of that nakedness provided a major distraction. During her matching interview for the photoshoot, 30-year-old Kravitz dropped the major bombshell that she’s been secretly engaged for the majority of 2018, and no one even realized.
"Oh yeah, I'm engaged," Kravitz reportedly told interviewer Josh Eells after he noticed the enormous diamond sitting quietly on her left ring finger. "No, I'm engaged!” She insisted. “I haven't told anyone yet – I mean, I haven't told the world. I wanted to keep it private.”
The story in Rolling Stone went on to reveal that Kravitz's longterm partner Karl Glusman had originally planned to get down on one knee during a romantic Paris vacation with the actress and model. But, when work commitments got in the way of things, he was forced to improvise and ended up proposing in their living room instead. Kravitz recalled that his heart was racing so fast that she was seriously concerned. "I was like, 'Baby are you OK?' I was actually worried about him," she said. "He nailed it. And I love that it wasn't some elaborate plan in Paris. It was at home, in sweatpants.”
In January, Kravitz told InStyle that she was "slowly but surely" putting together plans for their big day, but an insider source shared with Us Weekly that the lovebirds have actually made it official, tying the knot in a super secret ceremony. Word on the street is that Kravitz are still planning to hold a traditional ceremony and reception in France later this summer.
So who exactly is Karl Glusman? Here’s everything we know about the elusive actor so far, for anyone who’s curious.
31-year-old Glusman is an actor just like Kravitz, and originally hails from NYC. He is best known for his roles in controversial 2015 drama Love, as well as The Neon Demon (2016), Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals (2016) and Netflix’s Gypsy.
The pair first began dating two years ago in 2016 after meeting through mutual friends. Recalling their early days of dating, Kravitz told Rolling Stone that she invited him back to her place for an afterparty, when they ended up making out all night. "It was cute! I can be my weirdest self around him. It's so relaxing to be around someone where you can be a hundred percent how you feel,” she shared.
The pair have since appeared together publicly at a number of red carpet events. As Kravitz mentioned in the interview, the couple prefer to keep their relationship fairly private, and only tend to share the occasional loved up photo on Instagram. Fingers crossed that we'll find out more about their big day as it gets closer!
