The Things They Say:

“I had no plan to act. I used to do it when I was a kid. As a teenager, I did theatre in New York, television when I was a kid. But music took my heart. And that’s still the nucleus of my creative life. But I met (Precious director) Lee Daniels in a restaurant. He walked up to me and said he had been trying to reach me and that I should be acting and if I had even a drop of my mother’s talent that I’d be OK.” Rocker Lenny Kravitz on his decision to return to acting, following in the footsteps of his late mother, Roxie Roker, who starred in the popular U.S. sitcom, The Jeffersons.
