Lisa Bonet seems to be ageless–she turned 49 today, but looks almost the same as when she starred as Denise Huxtable on the NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show.” (Sadly, the show has since been tainted for me because of the Cosby sexual assault allegations, but that doesn’t change the fact Bonet’s acting in it was awesome.)
Bonet, who is Jewish and African American (just like her ex-husband Lenny Kravitz), is also mother to actress Zoe Kravitz. As a whole, Bonet lives a fairly private life and tries to stay out of the Hollywood spotlight–which I can totally respect and understand (because no one needs to know your business).
But on her birthday, she still deserves some public praise. Here are some of my favorite Bonet moments:
1. When she wants to leave Brooklyn and go to Africa as a photographer’s assistant in “The Cosby Show”:
2. She talks about being spiritual and doing yoga:
3. Bonet talks about her movie,”The Red Road,” and how she loved working with her husband, Jason Momoa:
4. She appeared on an episode of the “Phil Donahue Show” in 1990 with River Phoenix, where they discuss vegetarianism, veganism, environmentalism, vaccinations, breast-feeding, and more:
